Hongkong Land announced that its premium lifestyle retail destination, WF Central, a world-class, 150,000 sq m retail, dining and hospitality hub in Wangfujing, in the centre of Dongcheng District, will be open on November 28.
WF Central is set to offer an authentically-new Beijing lifestyle experience by bringing together a range of luxury, fashion, world-class gastronomy, lifestyle & wellness and art & culture experiences.
WF Central's design blends into the historic fabric of the Wangfujing District and incorporates a reconstructed Courtyard House, former residence of the princelings Prince Pu Lun and Prince Pu Dong, cousins of the last Qing Emperor Pu Yi, infusing the multi-functional space with a historical dimension. The Green, located on the West side of the complex, is a large open area that provides visitors with outdoor recreational space to enjoy.
The development also includes the 74-room Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing, Beijing, which will open later in 2018. Located on the top two floors, the hotel will feature two prestigious
restaurants and a bar designed to become a destination in itself.
"WF Central, represents a wholly unique retail and lifestyle experience in the heart ofBeijing," said Mr Raymond Chow, Executive Director of Hongkong Land. "It has been envisaged as a Beijing landmark of quality living by engaging, connecting and building community through a considered curation of art and cultural activity and experiential lifestyle."
