Tokyo, Japan, February 2, 2024 – Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd., a leading global real estate company headquartered in Tokyo, announced that it has decided to begin the Phase 2 development plan for MITSUI OUTLET PARK TAINAN (“MOP TAINAN”) through project company SANNAN OUTLET CO., LTD. Since its opening in February 2022, MOP TAINAN has welcomed a total of approximately 15 million visitors through the end of 2023. The property has been highly rated for its convenience and the appeal of stores that have been opened.

For the Phase 2 development plan, a groundbreaking ceremony will take place on February 2, 2024, with opening scheduled for 2025. This expansion will increase the number of stores from around 190 at present to around 240, allowing MOP TAINAN to evolve into a more diverse and fulfilling outlet mall.

Key Points of this Release

< Growth of areas around the property >

The property is located right in front of Taiwan High Speed Rail Tainan Station (“Tainan HSR Station”), and numerous residential development projects are currently under way in the surrounding areas. Over the next 3 years or so, the population in these areas is expected to grow by more than 10,000 people.

< Phase 2 development plan and retail functions >

To ensure that customers enjoy a comfortable shopping experience even in Tainan’s tropical climate, Phase 2, like Phase 1, is planned as a fully enclosed mall. In addition to enhancing outlet stores, Phase 2 envisions attracting large merchandise stores and restaurants to the property. One-stop shopping convenience will also be increased so that the property can meet the needs of the rapidly growing local population.

< Contributing to the solution of ESG issues >

Solar panels for power generation are scheduled to be installed on the Phase 2 development plan building’s rooftop and outdoor surface parking lot.
Efforts will be made to help reduce environmental impact through private use of the renewable energy generated on-site.


Tainan City, a historic city, celebrates its 400th founding anniversary in 2024. It is a city with numerous historic sites and many other attractions, making it a popular tourist destination. Phase 1 of MOP TAINAN opened in February 2022, right in front of Tainan City’s main transit hubs - Tainan HSR Station and Shalun Station on the TRA Shalun Line.

Since the opening of Phase 1, customers have highly praised the property’s appealing store mix, which includes stores in highly popular genres and brands in Taiwan, stores opening for the first time in southern Taiwan, and long-standing, locally well-known restaurants. As a result, the property has welcomed a total of approximately 15 million visitors since its opening to the present (as of the end of December 2023).

Several residential development projects are currently underway in the areas around the property. The Tainan City Government has announced that the local population is projected to increase by more than 10,000 people by 2027. In addition, various facilities such as a smart energy research institution, university, and a large exposition center, have already been completed and are in operation. Furthermore, a general hospital, hotels and other facilities are also expected to be completed in the near future. Tainan City has become one of southern Taiwan’s areas attracting the most attention for its growth.

MOP TAINAN’s Phase 2 development plan will scale up the total number of stores to approximately 240, an increase of around 50 stores from Phase 1 (approx. 190 stores). While considering Tainan City’s growth in resident and working population, the increase in visitors to the property can be expected, which may require the diversification of needs. Mitsui Fudosan will strive to attract outlet stores in wide range of genres and brands that are well known and draw strong interest in Taiwan to fulfill such needs. At the same time, it aims to develop a property where visitors can enjoy daily meals and everyday shopping even more than before.

ESG measures (measures to reduce environmental impact) at the property

According to the Phase 2 development plan, solar panels (about 1,700 panels) for power generation will be installed on the building’s rooftop and surface parking lot. The property will help to reduce its environmental impact by effectively harnessing the abundant solar energy found in southern Taiwan via these solar panels. The solar panel-generated clean electricity is planned to be used within the property to meet its power requirements.

Apart from this, the property is working to reduce its environmental impact by implementing a variety of measures. By actively using LED lighting equipment, rainwater recycling sanitary equipment and other items, the property plans to acquire a Silver rating under the Green Building system (Taiwan’s environmental impact assessment and certification system, subject to GRESB assessment) in Phase 2, following on from Phase 1.

Retail property business in Taiwan

Mitsui Fudosan is currently developing and operating six retail properties in Taiwan, including three outlet malls: MOP TAINAN, MITSUI OUTLET PARK LINKOU (New Taipei City, scheduled to open Phase 2 in 2024) and MITSUI OUTLET PARK TAICHUNG PORT (Taichung City) and three regional shopping centers: Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport TAICHUNG (Taichung City, opened in May 2023); Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport NANGANG (tentative name) (Taipei City, scheduled to open in 2024); and Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport KAOHSIUNG (tentative name) (Kaohsiung City, scheduled to open in 2026).
