Hong Kong-based property conglomerate, New World Development, has unveiled a US$2.5 billion retailtainment development plan dubbed ‘11 Skies’.
Located in SkyCity of the Hong Kong International Airport, 11 Skies will have a gross floor area of 3.8 million sqft and will be operated by K11. The project is slated to open in phases from later this year through to 2025.
The first phase of entertainment attractions, currently under construction, is expected to open from the end of next year to early 2024, introducing the city’s first 4D motion flying theatre ‘Timeless Flight Hong Kong’, South Korea’s largest immersive media art exhibition ‘Arte Museum’, the new Paddington themed family play experience ‘Paddington Play Experience’, and the first ‘KidZania’ in Greater China.
The development will be home to more than 800 shops, including more than 120 dining concepts.
“This game-changing destination will redefine traveller and consumer experience, capture cross-border business opportunities, and is set to reshape the retail landscape in Hong Kong,” the company said in a statement.
