CapitaLand Adds Chongqing Property to China Assets

SINGAPORE—CapitaLand Ltd., Southeast Asia's largest property developer by market value, will jointly develop a mixed-use property project in China estimated to cost about 4.1 billion Singapore dollars (US$3.15 billion).

The project in southwestern Chongqing city will comprise residential, retail, office and hotel properties with a total gross floor area of 817,000 square meters, CapitaLand said Tuesday.

The consortium, which includes CapitaMalls Asia Ltd. and Singbridge HoldingsPte. Ltd., was awarded the 91,783-square-meter site for about S$1.28 billion in a tender that closed Monday, it said, adding that the project—to be built over five years—will be funded with debt and equity.

CapitaLand sees the project as part of its plan to grow its key China market, which comprises about 35% of its total assets, group Chief Financial Officer Arthur Lang said at a news briefing. "In the next three to five years, if you look at our asset composition, China will end up between 42%-45% of total assets," he said.

Nonetheless, the group has seen credit costs rise in China as a result of Beijing's attempts to temper a buoyant property market.

The project in southwestern Chongqing city will comprise residential, retail, office and hotel properties with a total gross floor area of 817,000 square meters.

"The availability of credit is still there but it has gotten a little bit more expensive," Mr. Lang said. "In the past, we would have gotten probably a 10% discount to the [People's Bank of China] reference rate; now we're getting probably a 10% premium to PBOC."

The group also expects China to keep its tightened stance on the property market well into 2012. "It won't happen so soon, but policy is likely to change any time from the second half of next year," Chief Operating Officer Lim Ming Yan said at the news briefing.

CapitaLand and its 65.5%-owned shopping-mall developer CapitaMalls Asia will collectively hold a 50% stake in the Chongqing development, with Singbridge, a wholly owned unit of Singapore state-investment company Temasek Holdings Pte. Ltd., holding 30%. The remainder is held by unnamed investors.

Chongqing Chaotianmen
Chongqing, China,
Located at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jailing rivers, the site for this mixed-use project is imbued with a significance that is immediately symbolic. The foremost of Chongqing’s traditional city gates (the Chaotian Gate, or “gate to heaven”), where emperors carried out the ceremonies of diplomatic greeting, it has long been a historical landmark. As the city’s initial dock area on the Yangtze, it also represents the great tradition of the shipping highway, which has stoked this major inland city’s development and now drives its evolution as one of China’s most important modern cities. The design for the project to be situated at this gateway is generated by the image of powerful sails upon the water. The outer facades of the project’s six towers—the transparent surfaces that will face the water to the north—are meant to recall a fleet of ancient Chinese ships, with their huge rectangles of white canvas filled by the wind. This image is recognizable in its simplicity, yet iconic in its form. In addition to serving as an outward-facing gateway symbol, the project also has a strong presence in forming the apex of the city’s peninsula. The south-facing facades—the inside of the arc of towers—look back to the city in a gently embracing way, covered by green hanging gardens that meet the ground at a podium roof level that is itself a green amphitheater “park” of gardens, pools, and public circulation. This park area gently rises to the north, framing views to the water between the towers—which will house residences, offices, and a hotel—and maximizing views of the project itself from the city. Underneath the park level, the podium consists of five levels of public program, including retail and cultural facilities, as well as hubs for land and water transportation. The two central outer towers, directly facing the rivers’ convergence to the north, are the project’s tallest structures (348 meters above flood plain; 77 floors each), with the central axis of the project proceeding back from between them, toward the city. Tucked immediately within the two tallest towers, extending the arc, are four shorter towers (each with 62 floors), across which runs an exterior, connecting garden that hovers 248 meters in the air. In addition to linking these four towers—two of which are office space (and actually “twin” stepped segments of the two larger, central towers), and two of which are residential—the garden echoes the amphitheater park far below and creates a dramatic viewing platform that optimizes this site’s unique views back to the rest of Chongqing. Within the garden level’s hull is a full floor of hotel lobby, restaurants, and clubs. Above are gardens and pools. The remaining two (freestanding) towers, which complete the prow-like arc of six, are residential, each 57 floors tall, making for a project total of 302,000 square meters of prime living units.
Project Type: Mixed Use
Client: CapitaLand Ltd / CapitaMalls Asia Ltd / Singbridge Holdings Pte. Ltd.
Size: 8800000

I can't remember when it was the last time I was so excited about a project. This is just perfect!
I think Shanghai Tower has to step down on my "most-wanted-to-see-completed-list"...
