About Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport KAOHSIUNG (tentative name)

This project site is located in the city area adjacent to Fongshan West Station (Kaohsiung City Council) on the MRT Orange Line, approx. 5 km from central Kaohsiung, and the National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts, Taiwan’s largest integrated arts and culture facility, is located to the west of the site. Within a 5 km radius there is a population of approx. 1.02 million, and a rich economic catchment population of approx. 2.72 million within a 30-minute drive, so the facility is expected to attract customers from a wide area, including Pingtung County, adjacent to Kaohsiung.

The facility will comprise approx. 250 stores and become the first full-scale regional shopping center in the Kaohsiung-Fongshan area. The mall has few floors so customers can wander easily, and there will be fashion brands including some from Japan, restaurants and a food court, and large-scale specialized stores and entertainment facilities, proposing new lifestyle opportunities to customers from a wide range of ages and aiming to create a retail property where people can enjoy spending time throughout the day.
