Swire opens second Beijing mall

Swire Properties, together with joint venture partner Sino-Ocean Land, has launched the Indigo mall in Beijing.

Indigo is situated in the Chaoyang District, and offers a combination of shopping, leisure, business and hospitality. The retail-led mixed-use development covers a total area of 176,000 sqm, which encompasses an 87,000 sqm shopping mall, a 25-storey office tower named One Indigo and a lifestyle business hotel called East Beijing offering 369 rooms and suites. A park spanning over 17 hectares is currently being planned.

Boasting more than 170 shops, the Indigo mall offers an eclectic range of brands, including CGV Xingxing International Cinema, Page One international book store and BHG Market Place.

Rare among retail developments in Beijing, the mall features a 2400 sqm Winter Garden, an airy interior space with a sweeping glass rooftop which floods the entire interior with natural light. Featuring a wide array of fine restaurants as well as a large event area, the Winter Garden provides a smooth, gradual transition between the mall and the outdoor park.


Upon completion, the 17 hectares of parkland will offer visitors a combination of green landscape, architecture, art and activity space.

Indigo is the second venture of Swire Properties in Beijing’s property market after Sanlitun Village and is the first joint venture between Swire and Sino-Ocean Land.

“We believe Indigo provides an answer to this community’s growing need for recreational, leisure, retail and entertainment facilities. By bringing many new international and local brands into the area, we are excited to contribute to the transformation of the neighborhood while providing more choices and offerings.” said Li Ming, CEO and chairman of Sino-Ocean Land.

Indigo mall was designed by Benoy.
