Central Market Attracts 3 Million People in First 2.5 Months Phase Two Now for Lease, Set to Open in Mid-2022
“The revitalised Central Market has become a new community cultural hotspot in Hong Kong, attracting over three million visitors in its first two and a half months of operation,” Donald Choi, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Chinachem Group, remarks.
Chinachem Group (the Group) is pleased to report that the revitalised Central Market has drawn over three million visitors in its first two and a half months of operation since its soft opening in late August. The Urban Renewal Authority Board has approved the tender award to Chinachem Group as the main operator of the Central Market Revitalisation Project for a period of 10 years.
Donald Choi, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Chinachem Group, said: “The revitalised Central Market has become a new community cultural hotspot in Hong Kong and appeals to people of different age groups. More than 400 community and joint activities were held in the past few months, attracting nearly 200,000 participants. Phase One of the project saw a very satisfactory take-up rate of 95% with some 100 tenants. Phase Two is now available for lease and is expected to open for (full) operation in the middle of next year.” “With more tenants moving in and the festive season around the corner, we expect the footfall and sales to climb up further. Looking into the future, Central Market will continue its cultural legacy whilst embracing the spirit of innovation. We will further enhance the support facilities for Central Market and strive to create an approachable, vibrant and gregarious landmark which boasts unique experiences for visitors and features a communal space that fosters communications, connections and community building.”
More exciting events are in the pipeline, including Urban Market – Less is More, Christmas With Heart, and Central Countdown and more.
