KWIH seizes the business opportunities in the Yangtze River Delta and the Greater Bay Area

14 Apr 2021

The 2020 coronavirus pandemic has affected the entire world, however in Mainland China, society is stable, and the economy is steadily picking up again due to rapid epidemic control measures. In the Mainland, the GDP grew by 2.3% in 2020, and exceeded RMB 100 trillion for the first time, becoming the only major economy in the world to achieve positive economic growth. With the “domestic and international dual circulation” policy, the strategic location of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the Yangtze River Delta city cluster is playing an ever-important role in the economy and societal development of the country.

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area features a world-class consortium of “9+2” cities. Compared with other major bay areas in the world such as the San Francisco Bay Area, New York Metropolitan Area, and Tokyo Bay Area, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has notable advantages. For example, its land mass population, port container throughput, and air passenger numbers all exceed those in other bay areas. KWIH is well-positioned to grow with the Greater Bay Area with core developments in Guangzhou, Dongguan, and Jiangmen.

J City, a high-end metropolitan residential community in Jiangmen,represents another premium development project of the Group. Located in Jianghai District, Jiangmen, the residential complex is just about 1 minute’s walk away from Jiangmendong Railway Station of the Guangzhou-Zhuhai Intercity Railway, through which residents can reach the Guangzhou South Station for transit to Hong Kong West Kowloon Station via the High-Speed Rail within a 90-minute commute.

J City consists of 20 residential blocks, providing 2,238 units and commercial facilities. Featuring meticulous designs by internationally renowned firms, such as the façade by Aedas, the world’s 5th largest architecture firm, and interior of common area by Steve Leung Design group, the project has set a new benchmark for high-end living in Jiangmen. Well-sought by buyers, the project has received considerable attention in the market, evidenced by the record high in transaction prices in Jianghai district.

Tony Wan, Director of Sales & Marketing (Hong Kong Properties) of KWIH:"Following the opening of transport infrastructure such as the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and High-Speed Rail, Hong Kong buyers have become increasingly interested in residential projects in the Greater Bay Area. Previously earmarked for sale in Mainland China only, J City in Jiangmen is now available in Hong Kong with selected units, following enthusiastic enquiries from potential Hong Kong buyers."


COSMO in Huadu, Guangzhou, is a project that is gaining a lot of attention in the market. Phase 1 of its residential development, COSMO POLIS, will provide approximately 1,500 residential units and will feature an ecological park of over 80 thousand square metres, as well as many business amenities such as theatres, supermarkets, fitness centres, and food plazas. With the nearby Guangzhou North Railway Station and Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, the development has a great location to make the most of the conveniences of the Greater Bay Area “one-hour living circle”.

The Yangtze River Delta city cluster

The “Integrated Regional Development of Yangtze River Delta” is continually being pursued in Mainland China, which highlights the importance of the strategic location of the Yangtze River Delta city cluster. The Yangtze River Delta economic activities are enlivened and the investment of infrastructure is vigorous. With the formal opening of the Shanghai-Suzhou-Nantong Railway, transport connections are well developed and convenient, gradually forming a regional cluster with highquality development.

One of the Group’s future key development projects will be EDGE on the bank of the Suzhou Creek in Jingan District, one of the new commercial and cultural areas of Shanghai. It is close to the city’s most happening areas, with artistic and cultural landmarks and buildings, linked to every major transport hub. Three major brand-new elements, namely innovative technology, art and culture, and sustainable development, are being integrated into the projects to satisfy tenants’ requirements and new standards for green working environments and high technology.

Another commercial and residential project that stands out on the market is Weifang Village Street Project, located in a stretch of land by the Huangpu River in the Pudong New District. It is located at the intersection between the Lujiazui Financial District and the core business district of World Expo companies’ headquarters. The area has notable advantages, and the project is expected to be completed in 2021.
