Our Chair Sent His Congratulations for the Re-opening of Grand Gateway 66 in a Special Video

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our Chair, Mr. Ronnie C. Chan, was unable to travel to Shanghai in person to celebrate the re-opening of Grand Gateway 66. Instead, Ronnie recorded a short video to celebrate this remarkable achievement. He said the re-opening was particularly meaningful as it coincided with the 60th Anniversary of the Hang Lung Group. He said: “Grand Gateway 66 was our first commercial complex in mainland China. I still remember when we bought the plot back in December 1992. Over the past three decades, we have witnessed the rapid development of Shanghai and the growth of the luxury goods market in mainland China.”
He also said: “We have full confidence in the luxury goods market in China and the enhancement project at Grand Gateway 66 is of great importance to us. Today, we are presenting to Xuhui district citizens and Shanghai citizens the brand-new face of Grand Gateway 66 as a five-star shopping mall.”

A Focal Point with a Brand New Image

Grand Gateway 66 has undergone comprehensive upgrades.

The people-oriented design of Grand Gateway 66 reflects its vitality and contemporary flair, to meet the tastes and requirements of the mall’s young customer base. At the same time, efforts have been made to optimize the brand portfolio and business strategy, with major themes including fashion apparel, watches and jewelry, sports and fitness, cultural entertainment, digital home appliances and children’s products. Nearly 400 specialty stores have been established in themed areas on various floors, where customers are provided with personalized, one-stop services that allow Hang Lung’s customer-centric approach to be put into practice.
