Topping Out of Office Tower 2 at Center 66 in Wuxi
(Hong Kong, June 29, 2018) Center 66, Hang Lung Properties’ commercial complex in Wuxi in Jiangsu Province, held a Topping Out Ceremony today for its second Office Tower. The Ceremony was hosted by Hang Lung’s Chief Executive Officer Designate Mr. Weber Lo; Chief Financial Officer Mr. H.C. Ho; and Executive Director Mr. Adriel Chan. Mr. Lu Zhijian, Deputy Mayor of the Wuxi Municipal Party Committee; Mr. Jiang Weijian, Vice Chairman of the Wuxi Municipal Committee under the CPPCC and Mr. Qin Yongxin, Deputy Secretary of the CPC Liangxi District Committee of Wuxi and Governor of Liangxi District also officiated the ceremony and bore witness to Hang Lung’s momentous achievement in Wuxi.

At the ceremony, Mr. Weber Lo, Chief Executive Officer Designate of Hang Lung Properties, said, “Hang Lung remains confident in the prospects of the retail and commercial sectors, and pays special attention to investing in the Yangtze River Delta region. Since its opening five years ago, Center 66 has injected a new concept into the city’s retail landscape. The mall has now claimed a leading position in Wuxi’s retail market, half of the international brands in the mall are making their debut in Wuxi and they are all favored by high-end consumers. The first Office Tower has attracted numerous multinational corporations and top Mainland companies, proving that Center 66 has already become an iconic landmark in Wuxi.”

“Hang Lung sees great potential in Wuxi. As the first phase matures and with the second phase now being planned, I firmly believe Center 66 will contribute further to the commercial value of Wuxi’s core business district and spur the city’s economy and society to continued growth and prosperity,” Mr. Lo added.

In May, Hang Lung successfully acquired a prime plot of land in Hangzhou, which becomes the Company’s third point of development in the Yangtze River Delta region after Shanghai and Wuxi. Given Wuxi’s key location in region, Center 66 will create strong synergy with Hang Lung’s flagship projects in Shanghai - Plaza 66 and Grand Gateway 66 - and with the forthcoming project in Hangzhou, thereby advancing the region’s development and raising it to new heights.

Construction of Center 66’s Office Tower 2 is progressing well, and completion is expected in the second quarter of 2019. Office Tower 2 will link directly to the mall, whose outstanding features are to include the renowned Premiere Cinemas movie theater. This enhancement further diversifies the complex’s tenant mix, and is expected to attract additional customers and heighten the overall ambience of the complex.

Center 66 achieved a favorable performance in 2017 as a result of Wuxi’s economic growth. The mall has an appealing tenant mix marked by the combined presence of such renowned international brands as Prada, Miu Miu, Salvatore Ferragamo and Ermenegildo Zegna, among others. Office Tower 1 has likewise secured for itself a prominent position in Wuxi’s office market. With the impending completion of Office Tower 2, together with the unceasing improvement of the complex’s offerings and services, Center 66 is destined to continue developing as a notable city landmark and a truly diversified, high-end commercial complex.
