JLL forms strategic alliance with Greenland Property/china/en-gb/news/656/jll-alliance-with-greenland-propertyJLL forms strategic alliance with Greenland Property<p>​<strong>Guangzhou, 29 May 2018</strong> – In a signing ceremony held today, JLL and Greenland Property announced a strategic alliance to partnership of deepen their cooperation in commercial properties management, especially super tall buildings.</p><p>Present at the event were senior executives from both parties, including: Feng Xin, Vice President of A-Living Group; Diao Xiaojun, Managing Director of Greenland Property; James Wong, Head of Property and Asset Management for JLL Greater China; Eric Lee, Operation Director for Property and Asset Management for JLL Greater China; and Chris Cheung, Business Development Director for Property and Asset Management for JLL China.</p><p>Greenland Property is a well-known property management company in China. In June 2017, A-Living Group—a subsidiary of Agile Group Holdings Ltd.—bought 100 percent shares of Greenland Property, the property management unit of Shanghai-based developer Greenland Holdings Group.</p><p>JLL is the largest commercial property and asset management service provider in Greater China, with over 11,000 professionals currently managing more than 67 million sqm properties in the region.</p><p>Under this partnership, JLL and Greenland Property holds a unique value proposition in the super tall buildings management field. As the super tall projects have been in China only for less than ten years, the market is generally still in its initial stage, lacking mature and systematic management experience. Operation and management has been the key to the success of super tall buildings. Quality property management services will bring a huge boost to the operational value of super tall developments. That is why the two parties have cooperated—to fully capitalize on the potential of this market.</p><p>On the strategic alliance, A-Living's Feng Xin said: "Committed to providing first-class services, A-Living is the only company in China's property management industry that has been endorsed—at the same time—by two leading real estate developers. Additionally, management services for commercial properties—especially for super tall buildings—are a hard nut in the industry. Yet, through cooperation with JLL, we will undoubtedly further improve the quality of our property management services."</p><p>Highlighting JLL's strength and rich experience in property management field, Greenland Property's Diao Xiaojun said: "We attach great importance to this, and believe that both sides will work together to complement each other's resources and continuously deepen the value of management services for commercial properties and super tall buildings."</p><p>JLL, a member of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), has provided property and asset management services to two thirds of the world's highest 21 super tall buildings and served many landmark super tall buildings in mainland China, which includes: Ping An Financial Center (Shenzhen), Chung Nam Centre (Suzhou), Jinmao Tower (Nanjing), China Zen (Beijing), Guangzhou IFC, Spring Eye (Kunming), and World Financial Center (Chongqing).</p><p>JLL's James Wong said, "Our team has a large number of experts in the region and is able to fully utilize our talent resources to serve clients across China and globally. And our advanced information and technology platform can provide clients with relevant parameters for benchmarking. In addition, the company has set up the Super Tall Building Management Committee which allows a wide range of information and best practices sharing on a regular basis for higher efficiency and standard."</p><p>"JLL will fully apply its knowledge and experience in commercial property and super tall buildings to realize the property management strategy of Greenland Property, jointly maximizing the projects' asset value," JLL's Chris Cheung added.</p><p>Greenland Property and JLL's first project under the strategic alliance is the iconic Wuhan Greenland International Finance Center, the coming tallest building in Central China.</p><p style="text-align:center;">​​– ends –​​</p><p>​​<span style="line-height:20.8px;">​</span><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about <a href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/citymarkets/guangzhou" target="_blank">JLL ​Guangzhou Page</a></em><br>​<em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about </em><em style="line-height:1.6;"></em><em style="line-height:1.6;"><a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/news" style="line-height:1.6;">JLL News</a>​</em><br>​<em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more a​bout​ </em><a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/research" style="line-height:1.6;"><em>JLL Research​​​</em></a><em style="line-height:1.6;"><br></em>​​<br></p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0"><strong><em></em></strong></span><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0"><strong><em>About JLL</em></strong></span><p>JLL (NYSE: JLL) is a leading professional services firm that specializes in real estate and investment management.

Co-working spaces in shopping malls - what’s the secret to this ‘perfect match’?/china/en-gb/news/647/coworking-in-shopping-mallCo-working spaces in shopping malls - what’s the secret to this ‘perfect match’?<h3><span style="font-size:18px;"><strong><em>​Both software and hardware upgrade are key to the success</em></strong></span></h3><p><strong>SHANGHAI, March 20, 2018</strong> – Co-working companies are scooping up empty space in China's shopping malls, where retail landlords are seeking new ways to adjust to the boom in e-commerce.</p><p>In Shanghai, WeWork took space in the Xuebao Shopping Mall. MyDreamPlus' leased space in the Fucheng International mall in Chengdu, while Guangzhou G.T. Land Plaza's has used its own model for co-working office space.</p><p>"Shopping centers have been seeking ways to counter the impact of  e-commerce, which has hit traditional retailers and mall owners hard in recent years. Introducing co-working spaces offers a new dimension from the current focus on family-based and entertainment activities", according to <strong>Eric Hirsch, Head of Markets, Beijing at JLL.</strong></p><p>"The benefits for a shopping mall when you bring in co-working spaces is that, in addition to helping fill vacant space, they should create more business opportunities for their retail and F&B tenants during working days when foot traffic is traditionally lower." Hirsch added.</p><p>For malls, it can also provide specific benefits. CapitaMall Wangjing ushered in a 1500 square meter UR Work co-working space, killing several birds with one stone: While differentiating its brand from other malls, the move also ushered in a raft of new shoppers.</p><h3><strong>Why is converted retail space a favorite?</strong></h3><p>A key issue for co-working in 2018 is how to offer increasingly innovative, fun, and rich communities to their demanding millennial workforces. Some co-working firms are finding moving into a shopping mall might be a good approach.</p><p>The "Easywork" space launched by Longfor in 2016 started with a 2,044 square meter space at their Beijing Changying Paradise Walk integrated development. Linked to an outdoor patio, it combines functions as a working space and showroom vehicle (for example for meetings, exhibitions and roadshows) for the tenant companies. By the end of its first half month in operation, it was running at 100% occupancy.</p><p>Another big factor for younger employees: Ease of transit.</p><p>"When finding a site for co-working, firstly you definitely have to look at how convenient the transit is, whether it's in a business district, whether it's close to a metro station,"<strong> Joe Zhou, JLL Head of Research for China</strong>, "Shopping malls normally locate in these transportation hubs."</p><h3><strong>A hard couple to match – both software and hardware need to fit</strong></h3><p>Experts warn that updating retail spaces for co-working habitation require more than a sticking-plaster solution. </p><p>"Owners need to get the rebuild right," said <strong>Ellen Wei, Head of Retail Shanghai & China Landlord Representation Lead at JLL</strong>. </p><p>There are two elements to this: <strong>Hardware and software</strong>.<br></p><p>In 'hardware' terms, malls and <a href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/services/property-types/office" target="_blank">offices</a> have completely different requirements for daylight penetration and interior layout design and themes. Co-working, for example, is best suited to small spaces, ideally 1000-2000 square meters. </p><p>The challenge for a rebuild is thus to wall off that kind of free-standing space and meet the daylight, layout and other standards for office space. </p><p>Office hours are also different to typical retail opening hours, so the challenge is to equip the co-working space with a dedicated entrance, elevator, power supply and HVAC. These are factors that decide whether a co-working rebuild is feasible.</p><p>In 'software' terms, an office space has to be sufficiently isolated from the mall operationally. Particular care is required during the rebuild to keep the co-working space isolated from elements such as the mall's PA background music and interior smells.</p><p>"A perfect match between a mall and a co-working space needs the right conditions for re-engineering," Ellen said.<br></p><p style="text-align:center;">​​– ends –​​</p><p>​​<span style="line-height:20.8px;">​</span><em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about <a href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/services" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">JLL ​Services​</a></em><br>​<em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more about </em><em style="line-height:1.6;"></em><em style="line-height:1.6;"><a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/news" style="line-height:1.6;">JLL News</a>​</em><br>​<em style="line-height:1.6;">>>>Read more a​bout​ </em><a target="_blank" rel="nofollow" href="http://www.joneslanglasalle.com.cn/china/en-gb/research" style="line-height:1.6;"><em>JLL Research​​​</em></a><em style="line-height:1.6;"><br></em>​​<br></p><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0"><strong><em></em></strong></span><span class="ms-rteFontSize-1 ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0"><strong><em>About JLL</em></strong></span><p>JLL (NYSE: JLL) is a leading professional services firm that specializes in real estate and investment management.
