For immediate release
Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd.

Tokyo, Japan, June 30, 2023 – Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, has been advancing the “Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport KAOHSIUNG (tentative name)” project through project company SAN HSIUNG FONGSHAN LaLaport CO., LTD*. Mitsui Fudosan hereby announces that construction on this facility, which will become the first full-scale regional shopping center in eastern Kaohsiung City, began today June 30th. An opening is scheduled for 2026.

The project site for this facility is located in the city area adjacent to Fongshan West (Kaohsiung City Council) Station 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 project site. Within a 5 km radius there is a population of approx. 1 million, and a rich economic catchment population of approx. 2.8 million within a 30-minute access by car, so the facility is expected to attract customers from a wide area, including Pingtung County, adjacent to Kaohsiung.

In addition, the facility will feature an exterior design that achieves harmony with the nature, culture and art of the surrounding Fongshan area. The facility will consist of a mall with low rise builgings on an expansive site of approx. 460,000 ft2 (approx. 43,000 m2), thereby allowing customers to wander and stay comfortably for long periods of time.

Key Points of the Project

  • Construction has begun on Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport KAOHSIUNG (tentative name). Scheduled to open in 2026 as the first full-scale regional shopping center in eastern Kaohsiung City.
  • Based on the concept of “New Nexus of Kaohsiung”
  • Will realize a retail property consisting of approximately 280 stores where people enjoy spending time that enables customers to enjoy various uses such as merchandise, food and drink, and entertainment all at once.

Based on the concept of “New Nexus of Kaohsiung,” the facility will provide shopping functions that were lacking in eastern Kaohsiung, an area with abundant nature, culture, and art, and generate new connections between people and things, becoming a center of commerce in Kaohsiung City. The number of stores is scheduled to be approximately 280, and will consist of fashion brands both from within and outside Taiwan, stores making their debut in Kaohsiung including Japanese-affiliated stores, food and drink establishments such as a food court consisting of local cuisine, etc., and stores for which there is strong daily demand such as supermarkets. Additionally, the facility will serve as a retail property where people enjoy spending time that comprehensively meets the needs of consumers in Kaohsiung City by providing a full array of services and entertainment.
