The French high-tech theme park Futuroscope will be operated in Shenzhen in 2009... The park is devoted to cinematic and audio-visual techniques and special effects. It is the only place containing all versions of the IMAX theatres (normal, dome, 3D, dome 3D and flying-carpet-style). It is now one of France's three leading theme parks, along with Disneyland Paris and Asterix.

未来乐园首次冲出法国首站选在深圳
更新时间: 2006年5月20日

法国未来乐园总裁多米尼克·胡莫尔:总投资16亿元人民币,可与美国迪士尼媲美——

未来乐园首次冲出法国首站选在深圳

“很高兴能在文博会上与深圳市宝能投资集团有限公司签订了总投资额为16亿元人民币的深圳未来乐园项目。这是我们法国原创的、与迪士尼乐园和华纳影城齐名的主题公园。”

胡莫尔(DominiqueHummel,PresidentofFuturoscope)告诉记者,这是未来乐园首次冲出法国走向世界,而公司管理层毫不犹豫地选择了深圳作为他们进军的第一站。

“未来乐园所在的法国维埃纳省和深圳结为友好城市已有12年的时间,我们对深圳已经非常了解,尤其是其过去12年的高速发展以及良好的生态环境给我们留下了深刻印象,所以当时拍板我就说,深圳,就是这里了。”

胡莫尔称这个乐园在建成后可以媲美香港迪士尼乐园。“我们预计首期项目完成后每年可以接待观众300万人次,全部建成后接待观众数将跃升为600万人次,园内可以创造3000多个就业岗位,建成后15年估计可以创利税60亿元人民币。”

他告诉记者乐园选址西丽,整个工程估计在三年内可以完工。

据胡莫尔透露,2009年,深圳人将可以拥有一座占地60公顷,属于自己的影视、动漫类文化创意乐园,在自己的城市里参观高科技的动画影视拍摄流程,并将看到原汁原味的“深圳产”动漫影视作品。

乐园将引进一丝不苟的法国文化

当记者问到什么选择在文博会上签署这样一份重要的协议的时候,胡莫尔笑了,张开双臂比划着:“当然了,这是一个很高规格的文化交流盛会,有许多政府部门和新闻媒体关注,我相信我们的项目选择在这个文博会上签订必然可以让更多人知道,受到更多的关注。”

虽然签约只费几分钟,台下的谈判却进行了三年多。带着玳瑁色眼镜、穿着一身咖啡色西装的胡莫尔从外表到内里都秉承了法国一贯的一丝不苟的文化。“每一个细节我们都在谈判桌上仔细斟酌,整个合同从构思到最终首肯持续了三年多。”

胡莫尔用工整的字体给记者写下未来乐园的网址,“你上我们网站看看就知道了,我们将会给这个在深圳建设的乐园提供与法国未来乐园一模一样的设备、技术、服务,当然还有我们引以为豪的法国文化。”他一边说一边把笔轻轻地插入西装口袋。

欢迎深圳同行竞争

胡莫尔说他丝毫不担心来自老牌乐园如世界之窗、民俗村和欢乐谷等等的竞争。“我们是良性促进,共同把蛋糕做大。法国也有迪士尼乐园,可是未来乐园开业十年来至今每年仍吸引300多万人次入场游玩,这说明它是受人们欢迎的休闲形式。”

胡莫尔告诉记者,整个乐园将包括动漫中心、特技影视、高科技表演和娱乐,以及文化创意产品中心四大块。“我们希望能把乐园建成一个休闲的好去处。这些动漫、影视和表演的好处就是我们能不断地更换节目内容,观众每一次进场都能得到耳目一新的感受。就如同一台电视机,每天的节目内容都是新的,我们希望藉此吸引更多的回头客,不仅仅是来深圳观光旅游的客人们。”(谭小弥)

背景介绍

法国未来乐园位于法国中西部的维埃纳省,1992年营业,每年接待游客300多万人次,主要项目包括宇宙探秘、三维动画、动感地带、魔幻之旅等。目前,它已成为除美国迪士尼乐园、环球影城之外世界上最具影响力的旅游项目之一。该项目的特点是科技含量高,建筑物新颖别致,游客参与性较强,是一个新型科技文化景点。

A new 4D cinema will be opened in SkyPlaza (New Terminal 2 at HK International Airport) later this year. There is also one 4D cinema at HK Disneyland. There is also a Omnimax cinema at HK Space Museum. Omnimax is a variation of IMAX, so there is really nothing new with regard to the IMAX offer in Futuroscope at Shenzhen.

Look at the attendance at Disneyland Paris and Futuroscope (France).
Disneyland Paris wins hands down by a wide margin.


:)

Only a few animation company (e.g. Dreamworks, Fox, or some japanese ones) could have a chance to compete with Disney+Pixar in the area of animation.


the size of Futuroscope Shenzhen is less than 1/2 of the current size of HK Disneyland Resort (Phase 1). When Phase 2 of HK Disneyland completes, it will be even larger than Futuroscope Shenzhen.

My prediction: HKDL wins over Futuroscope Shenzhen.


I don't see it as a competition. I see both of them complementing each other instead.

Shenzhen is a largest "Cartoon And Flash Base" in Asia, and No.4 in the world, it is One of the important factors for Futuroscope Choose SZ to operate the first Theme park outside France... and Futuroscope will performe SZ's originally-created cartoons as well... it is different with other theme parks in Shenzhen, though "Happy valley" has already opened its own 3D/4D theatre in 2000...

I think these theme parks have different targeting... and the tourists will increase in the region...

It sounds like the people can see the VCD/DVD movies at home, why they still go to cinemas??? of couse, it is not only cinemas... I really dont know what exactly it will be, until it opens in Shenzhen...

I think its homepage can help you to know more about "Futuroscope" in France...

I would go to cinema and watch movies but not flash cartoon.

Flash is basically for internet or mobile phone.

if you look at the worldwide statistics, it is far more difficult to get people into cinemas (particularly in Hong Kong) nowadays. There are far more choices for people to go for entertainment today than it was some years ago, and there are the issues of pirated VCD/DVDs, Movies Download etc. Cinemas operators have to compete with Xbox 360, PS3, Karaoke, Shopping Malls, Home Entertainment Systems, etc...

well....let's look at what they have at Futuroscope (France):

-> Dances with Robots (New 2006) - Simulator Robocoaster

-> Adventures in Animation 3D (New 2006) - Giant Screen IMAX 3D

->Star of the Future (2005) - Interactive attraction

->Young Black Stallion (2005) - Giant Screen IMAX

->Journey into the Dark (2005) - A journey led by blind guide

->Peril on Akryls (2005) - Simulator Ride

->Futuroscope Digital City (New Games) - Interactive games plus the new AIBO robot dogs

->Children's World (New Games) - A play area covering 2 hectares where everyone can relax in the open air.

->Cyber Avenue (New Games) - A gallery just for arcade games and multimedia fun. Sixty arcade games (extreme skiing, Formula 1, Soccer, Jet Ski...) Free Internet access.

->Travellers by Air and by Sea (2004) - Giant Screen IMAX Double System; 2 Giant Screens, One in front and One under feet

->Race for Atlantis - Giant Screen IMAX Dome 3D with Simulator Ride

->Pulse: A Stomp Odyssey - Giant Screen IMAX Dome - a journey through different types of music around the world

->The Wings of Courage - 3D cinema

->Dynamic Vienne - Simulator ride

->Space Station 3D - Giant Screen IMAX Dome 3D

->Destination Cosmo - Dome Screen - showing a journey thru the solar system

->Best of Dynamic Cinema - A simulator ride

->Cyberworld - Giant Screen IMAX 3D

->La GyroTour - A panoramic Tower with 360 degrees Observatory


most of their attractions are basically movies showing on IMAX Screen(either Dome, Double Screens or 3D)plus simulator rides.

La GyroTour is basically a Panoramic Tower with a revolving observation deck . There is a similar one(Ocean Park Tower) at HK Ocean Park now.

I really don't see Futuroscope as a competitor, it is more like a Science Park with lots of emphasis on IMAX technology and Simulator Rides.

HK Space Museum is offering "Fighter Pilot" (Omnimax Show) and "Mystery of the Nile" (Omnimax Show), "Moon Revisited"(Sky Show) now,[Omnimax is a variation of IMAX] those shows are similar in nature with some of the attractions offering at Futuroscope.

I think the concept of Shenzhen Futuroscope cultural production park mostly are mixture with China [esp. Shenzhen] culture and France culture... in my opinion, it is targeting for children around Shenzhen, and the Cartoon fans in Asia... It estimates the attendance will be totally 6 million p.a [the 1st phase will be 3 million]...

actually, there are different senses when you see the 3D cartoon at home, comparing with seeing it in the 3D/4D theater and the cartoon theme park...

there is the first original-created 3D Cartoon of China by Shenzhen- "Thru the Moebius Strip" 《魔比斯环》...











I think "Happy Valley" [attendence was more than 3 million in 2005, it has been No.1 in China in past 3 years] has similar style with Disneyland, but not Futuroscope... it should be complementary for Shenzhen or PRD tourism...

It is about the deal below:

According to the agreement inked Thursday, the Shenzhen firm will introduce the main design concept and images from the French Futuroscope park into the Shenzhen park.

Apart from images, the Shenzhen Futuroscope park will also feature a stunt performance and high-tech video center. Short films entitled “Beautiful China,” “Outer Space Station,” “Splendid Pearl River,” and “Road to Shenzhen Special Economic Zone” will be screened at the center.

An amusement area will be set up for children, to help develop their interest in high technology, and a separate area will have a special department dealing with animation and related products.

the pictures look good....what about the animation movie?

a smart move by the shenzhen government, not to directly compete in the same type of theme park. also smart to setup the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Animation production centre at Shenzhen.

"Thru the Moebius Strip" is a animation movie, it will be set to the theaters in China Aug 4 this year, and releases in other countries, including the State, are still under negotiation. Based on French comic artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud's original story and artistic concept, Thru the Moebius Strip tells the story a young boy traveling to an alien world to find his father and learn of his destiny.

The movie, “Thru the Moebius Strip” has been shown in the digital cinema theatre at "Cannes Film Festival" in 2005.

Trailers here: 1. http://www.moebiusstrip.net/trailer/trailer2.mov 2. http://www.moebiusstrip.net/trailer/trailer3.mov

"Lion King," a Disney animation blockbuster of the 1990s, was made by Shenzhen animators as well...

Shenzhen cant wait for the Shenzhen-Hong Kong Animation production centre, Shenzhen has opened a new center, it calls Yijing State Cartoon and Flash Zone, Of the 30 companies, 17 are engaged in originally-created cartoons, 1 in computer games, 1 in mobile phone cartoons and games, and 1 in film and television show generation.

These companies will achieve a total production capacity of 14000 minutes of footage per year.

Of course, I expect Shenzhen-Hong Kong Animation production centre can open in near future...

GDC Entertainment is the company producing "Moebius Strip" movie, but GDC Holding Company (the parent company of GDC Entertainment) is actually a Hong Kong based company. I believe they setup a subsidiary in Shenzhen.

Headquartered in Hong Kong, Global Digital Creations Holdings Limited, together with its subsidiaries, (collectively the "Group" or "GDC") is one of the leading groups providing an integrated value chain in the digital content business which encompasses computer graphics ("CG") creation and production, distribution and exhibitions of digital content, and training of CG artists in the Asia Pacific region.

GDC has built a production pipeline in the city of Shenzhen in the People's Republic of China for the production of CG content for animated films, TV series and other CG applications. GDC is currently producing a 3D full feature CG animated film namely, Thru the Moebius Strip and co-producing a 52-episode animated TV series programme titled Panshel's World.

well...if those companies are subsidiaries of HK Based companies...I don't see an urgent need of putting them in Shenzhen-Hong Kong Animation Production Centre.


------------------------------------------------------------------------


After being in development for five years and burning almost US$20 million with 400 animators, Thru the Moebius Strip, the first Chinese made full-length 3-D animation is finally completed. This ambitious project is created by IDMT, a little known animation house located in the Chinese city of Shenzhen, bordering Hong Kong in the north.

French comic artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud provided the storyline and the artistic concept for the project. In 1999, the rights of the film was acquired by Raymond Neoh, an animation producer from Hong Kong. To finance the picture, Neoh raised money from his older brother and several independent investors, and later successfully listed his Global Digital Creations Holdings Limited (GDC Holdings Ltd.) company at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. In August 2000, Neoh established GDC Entertainment as the producing vehicle and Its Shenzhen-based subsidiary Institute of Digital Media Technology (Shenzhen) Limited (IDMT) provided the production facility for the project. 14 artists, mostly from Beijing, plus 150 apprentices started working at IDMT in that year. Several months later, only 10 artists and 120 apprentices remains. They spent about a year just to learn how to master the animating program they brought and did not produce one single shot. By 2001, five experienced CGI artists were hired for training animators but by the time they left, the management of IDMT still had no clue of how to run the operations. At that time, GDC had planned to deliver the film by the end of 2003 and even announced Columbia Tri-Star as the US distributor. IDMT only began producing by the end of 2003 and the production cost started to soar. When the project was near completion in the second half of 2004, GDC had already lost almost US$16 millions. In the summer of 2005, 80% of GDC?s shares were sold to Shouguang Concord Grand (Group) Limited, a mainland Chinese corporation listed at Hong Kong Stock Exchange, which brought in the funding GDC needed very badly. Raymond Neoh, the founder of GDC stays at the board of directors.

During the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, Thru the Moebius Strip was shown to about 120 representatives of distributors from around the world. Fantastic Films International, LLC has already picked up the film?s rights to the US market and a screen test was held in Hollywood on April 4 (Click here for a brief review). GDC is in negotiation with several distributors for the rights in other regions.

IDMT is currently working on a 52 episode TV series titled Panshel's World, co-produced by GDC Entertainment and French company Product and Partner Multimedia. As for the big screen, IDMT is currently looking for a story for its second full-length animated feature, with will be about China.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The movie was shown at Cannes in 2004....

They received mixed reviews on this movie.

here are some comments from IMDB: (average user rating 6.6/10)


I enjoyed and recommended the movie, 3 June 2004

Author: [email protected] from United States


I saw the focus group screen test in Hollywood on April 4, together with over 300 kids and their parents. The Moebius's design look great and I like the story. The kids love the animation, the landscape and the characters design are out of this world. The audience is very enthusiastic and they all applauded at the end of film!!

I stayed behind with the focus group, to listen to what they like and don't like about the movie and the kids really love it. The focus group describe the color is so vibrant and the ANIMATION - which was almost universally described as "revolutionary," "unlike anything they've ever seen", "feels 3-D", "seemed real in places", "puffed out" The action of the battle scenes, fighting and chase scenes fully impressed them. The movie carry a positive massage of family unity and payback for the bad guy.

The audience that i chat with really like it and they said they will highly recommend to other as well.

I think the movie will become a classic for CG animation and I applauded the people who bring this on the big screen for us.

Tell someone you hate to watch this film!, 23 May 2004

Author: Robert Chan from London, England


With names like Mark Hamill of Star Wars and Michael Dorn of Star Trek, and the unique images of the French cartoonist, Moebius, I was really looking forward to seeing this animation. But alas, it was my one greatest disappointment during my film hopping at Cannes 2004. Once you can get past the over the top acting, and line deliveries that made ones skin crawl, there was still the pathetic comedy moments that in itself was comical to witness how really really really badly it was executed. For budding animators/film makers, this is one to study as an academic would study Ed Wood films from the 50s. I'll give credit to the sets, which were quite spectacular in some instances - I usually don't notice these sort of things in movies, but seeing how bored I was I guess my eyes wondered to the least displeasing thing, the background. If you hate someone enough, tell them to watch this one. Or, perfect as a drive-in movie with a hot date!

Miserable dreck, 19 April 2005

Author: sctt03 from United States


This is a CG film that makes Final Fantasy seem like a brilliant epic by comparison. The direction is sub-par, the story run-of-the-mill, the designs unappealing, and the "animation" (if you could call it "animation") just revolting. Just because things move doesn't mean they're animated. It doesn't appear that anyone involved with this production has any concept of communicating an idea to an audience. But to do that, of course, you'd have to have an idea, which this film has not one.

This film has no audience, nor will it find one. A previous comment comparing it to Ed Wood films is being kind. At least Mr. Wood gave us some laughs, albeit unintentional. This film is just dead on arrival.
I'll reserve my judgement until I have seen this movie.

在《魔比斯环》的制作过程中,技术并非最大瓶颈。深圳作为中国动漫产业的重要基地之一,曾一度成为美日著名动画片的制作基地,培养了一批优秀的动漫技术人才。由于《魔比斯环》的进展比预期的要长,因此所需的费用也就跟着“水涨船高”。作为深圳公司的全额投资方环球数码香港公司,一直处于亏损状态,直到2004年内地在港上市公司“首长四方”持股82%成为其最大股东,才最终缓解了资金压力,使公司的经济状况好转. http://biz.163.com/06/0116/16/27JPDU7F00021EU2.html

首钢控股(香港)有限公司(简称首控公司)成立于1992年10月,是经中国政府批准的首钢在香港成立的全资附属机构,是首钢海外经营发展的主体公司。首控公司业务主要是投资控股,目前在香港直接或间接控股首长国际企业有限公司、首长科技集团有限公司、首长四方(集团)有限公司、首长宝佳集团有限公司四间上市公司

Yes, The film is funded by IDMT's Hong Kong parent company, Global Digital Creations Holdings Ltd [can be considered as a state own Company after 2004], But it is created by Shenzhen technic, thus regarded as a product of Hong Kong [fund] and Shenzhen [technic] cooperation in the animation field.

it costs a long time to complete the movie is not because the technic of Shenzhen animators, [as I notice above, Shenzhen is one of the centers of Cartoon And Flash, and Shenzhen's animation enterprises have participated in making a series of large-scale animated cartoon films, such as "Hua Mulan," "Lion King" and "Tarzan," produced by American Disney], It is because the shortage of funds from GDC...

after a state own Company , it calls shougang-grand Limited, bought 82% of the company's share in 2004, so that "Thru the Moebius Strip" had sufficient fund to be continuing...

环球数码科技研究有限公司表示,年内该片将在全球“同步放映”。而据笔者了解,此前这部整体耗时长达5年,总投资为1.3亿元,累计多达400多名创作人员参与的《魔比斯环》,在第58届戛纳电影节放映期间,深受国际业界好评,同时也受到了120多家国际电影发行商的青睐,中国动漫第一次摆脱了“替人做嫁衣”的尴尬局面,“百分之百中国制造”的动画片开始行销全球的同时,为那些还在摸索中的中国动漫产业,树立起了一个良好的营销榜样与模式。http://biz.163.com/06/0116/16/27JPDU7F00021EU2.html

From the article says that "Thru the Moebius Strip" had a good reaction in "Cannes Film Festival", it was praised by other movie industry makers and attracted by 120 internation movie distributors... it will be global performed within the year...

I found some of the comments are discrimination... and my suggestion is you're better see the trailers 1 & 2 above first, before you see the movie...

在《魔比斯环》的制作过程中,技术并非最大瓶颈。深圳作为中国动漫产业的重要基地之一,曾一度成为美日著名动画片的制作基地,培养了一批优秀的动漫技术人才。由于《魔比斯环》的进展比预期的要长,因此所需的费用也就跟着“水涨船高”。作为深圳公司的全额投资方环球数码香港公司,一直处于亏损状态,直到2004年内地在港上市公司“首长四方”持股82%成为其最大股东,才最终缓解了资金压力,使公司的经济状况好转. http://biz.163.com/06/0116/16/27JPDU7F00021EU2.html

首钢控股(香港)有限公司(简称首控公司)成立于1992年10月,是经中国政府批准的首钢在香港成立的全资附属机构,是首钢海外经营发展的主体公司。首控公司业务主要是投资控股,目前在香港直接或间接控股首长国际企业有限公司、首长科技集团有限公司、首长四方(集团)有限公司、首长宝佳集团有限公司四间上市公司

Yes, The film is funded by IDMT's Hong Kong parent company, Global Digital Creations Holdings Ltd [can be considered as a state own Company after 2004], But it is created by Shenzhen technic, thus regarded as a product of Hong Kong [fund] and Shenzhen [technic] cooperation in the animation field.

it costs a long time to complete the movie is not because the technic of Shenzhen animators, [as I notice above, Shenzhen is one of the centers of Cartoon And Flash, and Shenzhen's animation enterprises have participated in making a series of large-scale animated cartoon films, such as "Hua Mulan," "Lion King" and "Tarzan," produced by American Disney], It is because the shortage of funds from GDC...

after a state own Company , it calls shougang-grand Limited, bought 82% of the company's share in 2004, so that "Thru the Moebius Strip" had sufficient fund to be continuing...

环球数码科技研究有限公司表示,年内该片将在全球“同步放映”。而据笔者了解,此前这部整体耗时长达5年,总投资为1.3亿元,累计多达400多名创作人员参与的《魔比斯环》,在第58届戛纳电影节放映期间,深受国际业界好评,同时也受到了120多家国际电影发行商的青睐,中国动漫第一次摆脱了“替人做嫁衣”的尴尬局面,“百分之百中国制造”的动画片开始行销全球的同时,为那些还在摸索中的中国动漫产业,树立起了一个良好的营销榜样与模式。http://biz.163.com/06/0116/16/27JPDU7F00021EU2.html

From the article says that "Thru the Moebius Strip" had a good reaction in "Cannes Film Festival", it was praised by other movie industry makers and attracted by 120 internation movie distributors... it will be global performed within the year...

I found some of the comments are discrimination... and my suggestion is you're better see the trailers 1 & 2 above first, before you see the movie...
Yes i saw the trailers....

Some scenes are good.....but definitely not the kind of movie that i would say "Spectacular" instantly when i see it.

i prefer the CG of "Final Fantasy" over "Moebius Strip".

I still find something missing from the design of the characters...

but it is a good start.....

The two don't compete with each other. I doubt families thinking about a vacation will forgoe Disney for this. Besides, Disney has a much bigger international brand appeal.

深動物園800員工反「割地」

日前,中國第一家野生動物園──深圳野生動物園出現了自開業十三年以來前所未遇的800名國企員工自發掀起的簽名請願活動,並將請願書和集體簽名冊於近日上報深圳市領導,表達「反對商業圈地行徑,保護動物生存空間」的迫切願望。\大公報記者王一梅深圳九日電

在深圳文博會上月十八日開幕當天,主要從事房地產業務的深圳寶能投資有限公司即與有「法國迪士尼」之稱的「未來樂園」正式簽約,雙方擬投資16億元人民幣,用三年時間在深圳西麗興建一個影視、動漫類文化創意樂園。該項目初期佔地面積60萬平方米,擬於2009年5月1日推出一期項目,項目全部建成後,將佔地96萬平方米。此項目創下深圳第二屆文博會最大一筆交易。

不滿割地上書自保5月底,由深圳市有關當局牽頭組織多家單位,召開協調會落實法國「未來樂園」落戶西麗佔地事宜。深圳野生動物園在協調會上獲告知,在未來樂園規劃設計中,深圳野生動物園僅有的兩個停車場、一個海獅表演館、大型動物廣場藝術《百獸盛會》演出場地以及包括鱷魚池在內的多個動物飼養場合計12萬多平方米的土地被大筆一勾「圈走」,歸入未來樂園的項目名下。

面對突如其來的事態發展,深圳野生動物園員工表示強烈不滿。他們認為,本來動物園現有的土地遠遠未達到國家建設部關於野生動物園佔地需在1000畝以上的標準。如果土地再被割佔,由於空間所限,園內現有的大量動物的生存馬上就會出現問題,最終將直接導致動物園無法繼續經營。

鑒於深圳寶能投資一向以房地產為主營業務,動物園員工懷疑有關合同是否有「廉價圈地」以「建房牟利」的背後動機。

5月31日,深圳野生動物園及全體員工聯署向深圳市領導上書,強烈要求立即停止規劃建設「未來樂園」,保護深圳唯一的動物園,捍衛園內現有的300多個品種1萬多頭野生動物的生存空間。

市人大代表有意過問法律界人士認為,深圳野生動物園是國營企業,屬於國有資產。公眾對深圳野生動物園都可以獨立發表自己的意見。對於圈走深圳野生動物園現有土地與否決權在於人大。法律人士認為,即使政府部門做決策,同樣也應遵循法定程序,包括專家論證、行政聽證,以及接受人大代表質詢等程序。

目前,有深圳市人大代表在向深圳野生動物園方面和有關法學專家諮詢了相關情況後,表示將聯合其他市人大代表,就動物園搬遷一事寫成建議提交深圳市人大常委會。人大代表認為,是否佔用動物園的土地應聽取更多市民意見,尊重動物,並以科學論證做出抉擇。

據了解,法國「未來樂園」項目希望落戶中國,與深圳洽談已超過十年。該項目在全世界尚無分店,此前也曾與北京、上海均有過洽談,但最終被上述城市放棄。
