Aeon Mall to develop Space World site
A Space World amusement park in Kitakyushu city, on Kyushu Island, will be the site of a commercial complex to be developed by Aeon Mall.
Landowner Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corp has been discussing development of the Fukuoka Prefecture site with Aeon, with the target of launching a commercial complex by 2021. It will encompass retail, entertainment, culture and dining.
According to the city government, the two companies have signed a provisional lease contract for the 270,000 sqm lot, with a formal deal expected to be struck after the Space World lease expires at the end of June.
