Ying Li International Real Estate Limited has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Chongqing City Shuangfu New Area Administrative Committee and Chongqing Hardware & Electrical Industry Association Alliance to develop a new mixed-development property in Jiangjin District with a one-stop hardware and electrical appliances hub known as Ying Li International Hardware and Electrical Mall. The types of properties to be developed comprise high-grade retail shops, hotels, residential and a logistics distribution centre. The planned total Gross Floor Area ("GFA") of the project is 1.6 million m2 and the initial investment of the project is estimated to be around RMB 1.8 billion. The project is in line with Chongqing government's intention to relocate more than 180 medium and large sized enterprises from Chongqing's Central Business District to the secondary ring of the city. Ying Li International Hardware and Electrical Mall will be strategically located at Shuangfu neighbourhood in Jiangjin District, on the border of Chongqing's inner and secondary ring, which is easily accessible. Shuangfu neighbourhood is well developed with a population of over 150,000 and equipped with public infrastructures such as hospitals, schools and other social welfare system. The Ying Li International Hardware and Electrical Mall involves the development of a built-to-order ("BTO") wholesale centre. As all the facilities are specially tailored to buyers' requirements, deposits will be collected upfront prior to the commencement of the project. In order to secure more buyers for the project, the Group has formed a strategic alliance with CHEIAA, which consists of 9 trade associations. The Group will leverage on the network and reach of the CHEIAA to achieve an optimal selling rate before bidding for the project. Currently, the Company has registered interests from more than 900 prospective buyers representing a sellable GFA of 500,000 m2. The Group's new project will be constructed in three phases. Phase One will use up around 200,000 m2 of the total land area, while phases two and three will share the remaining 467,000 m2. The construction period of the whole project is estimated to be around 2-3 years. In line with the Group's existing strategy to enhance its investment portfolio, the Group will be retaining some of the premium completed developments as investment properties.
