Link Real Estate Investment Trust : CentralWalk Debuts as First Asset Enhancement Project in Mainland China

01/16/2022 | 01:35am EDT
  • Link completed its first large-scale asset enhancement project in Mainland China at Link CentralWalk, with the grand opening on 16 January
  • Link CentralWalk is positioned as "urban paradise on the central axis of Futian", with a green design in every nook and cranny
  • Link CentralWalk has achieved three green building qualifications: SITES Platinum Precertification, CS Platinum Certification of LEED V4 BD+C and the WELL Health-Safety Rating

Link Asset Management Limited (Link), the manager of Link Real Estate Investment Trust (Link REIT, Hong Kong stock code: 823) announced today (Sunday) that Link CentralWalk, Link's shopping mall primely located in Shenzhen's Futian, has completed its asset enhancement project and is celebrating its grand opening today.

This marks Link's first large-scale asset enhancement project in the Mainland. The project cost $350 million.

Through optimisation of the tenant mix, Link has increased the total number of shops by about 20%. While the mall targets young consumers and white-collar workers in the surrounding Futian central business district, it has also been enhanced to cater for the needs of family customers, differentiating its positioning in view of the lack of family-oriented shopping malls in the district.

Link CentralWalk is positioned as an "urban paradise on the central axis of Futian", with a green design in every nook and cranny. The interior of the shopping mall is designed with the theme of four seasons. The seasonal cycle of spring, summer, autumn and winter is presented through thematic decoration and a variety of seasonal plants. At the rooftop and outdoor sunken plaza, plants that bloom in different seasons, together with evergreens, presents changing greenery scenery to visitors throughout the year. Following the asset enhancement, the green area of Link CentralWalk now spans more than 18,000 square metres, and the total green coverage ratio has been raised by 10 percentage points to 43.1%, with as many as 36 kinds of plants in the mall.

After more than a year of upgrading and renovation, Link CentralWalk has achieved three green building qualifications - SITES Platinum Precertification, CS Platinum Certification of LEED V4 BD+C and the WELL Health-Safety Rating - all of which are expected to be officially certified during February and March 2022.

George Hongchoy, Link's Chief Executive Officer, said, "Link CentralWalk is Link's first shopping mall in Shenzhen and our first large-scale asset enhancement project in the Mainland China. We have applied our experience in asset enhancement at Link's Hong Kong properties to this project. We hope that the concepts of green design advocated by the project can create a relaxing space for the enjoyment of Shenzhen citizens."

Mr Hongchoy added: "We are glad that the mall has achieved the three green building qualifications, all are highly credible industry certifications in aspects such as green construction, site health and safety. These certifications once again underline Link's commitment in applying sustainable practices in its operations."

Since 2015, Link has progressively expanded its footprint in Mainland China, which comprises a diversified portfolio of nine properties spanning retail, office and logistics facilities in Beijing, Shanghai, and other cities in the Greater Bay Area including Guangzhou and Shenzhen. The Mainland assets account for 16.8% of Link's total portfolio value. [Note]
