Among the property portfolio of Joy City Property, eight are mixed-use complexes, namely Beijing Xidan Joy City, Shenyang Joy City, Beijing Chaoyang Joy City, Shanghai Joy City, Tianjin Joy City, Yantai Joy City, Chengdu Joy City,which are developed and marketed under the “Joy City” brand and Beijing COFCO Plaza, which is currently operated and marketed under the “COFCO (中粮)” brand. Joy City Property will focus on the development and management of the mixed-use complexes under the flagship brand of “Joy City”. In relation to Beijing COFCO Plaza, it is Joy City Property's intention to continue to attract sizable banks and corporations to lease premises in the office portion of the project and to turn its shopping mall into a centre for luxury furniture.


Apart from the eight mixed-use complex projects, certain hotels which form part of the integrated tourist project and other hotel projects of Joy City Property are developed and promoted either in collaboration with renowned luxury hotel brands such as Waldorf Astoria, W Hotel and MGM or under the “Gloria (凯莱)” brand. Going forward, Joy City Property will continue to focus on the development of large scale mixed-use complex projects. Besides, Joy City Property will leverage on the established brands of “COFCO (中粮)” and “Joy City (大悦城)”, as well as Joy City Property's knowledge and experience as a developer and operator of commercial properties with a view to developing new projects in commercial centers within the surrounding regions of the centres of first-tier cities in the PRC where Joy City Property already has an existing property portfolio, such as Beijing and Shanghai, and also selectively expanding into prime locations in second-tier cities in the PRC.


Joy City Property generates continuous and stable returns from its quality commercial property projects. The company will maintain a balanced portfolio of properties for sale, investment and operation. The balanced property portfolio would enable Joy City Property to generate revenues from sales of properties whilst maintaining recurring rental income and hotel revenues and capturing the long-term capital appreciation potential of its properties for investment and operation.
