“This will be Beijing’s first mallstyle shopping centre, providing a new lifestyle opportunity to customers
in Beijing, where motorisation is increasingly taking hold,” the company said.

The shopping centre will have 104 speciality stores, including 14 that are opening for the first time

Tianjin, in the future, aiming for 100 shopping centres throughout China by the end of fiscal year
2010,” the company said.

Changping District is two minutes from the Bei’anhe Exit of the Badaling Highway and 35 minutes

The shopping centre is situated in a market area that is home to 4.5 million people, including
