A China-based business community, conceived in the image of some of today’s leading business communities that evolved to their current position as a result their historical dominance as one of the world’s leading seaports, has been recently displayed on the huge display screens overlooking New York’s Times Square.
This is the first time this year that a new business center created in Xiamen, a port city on China’s west coast, has appeared in international media. The display was designed to announce to the world that Amoy International Yacht Banquet has taken its place among the five leading maritime-based business centers worldwide.
There are eight recognized maritime-based business areas today, but only a handful have successfully integrated business, leisure and tourism facilities. The select few meeting this requirement, New York’s Manhattan, Dubai Marina, Singapore’s Sentosa, and London’s Canary Wharf, have the most valuable assets in the world. Amoy International Yacht Banquet marks the world’s fifth such community to become a member of this select pantheon.
Positioned as the world’s fifth largest maritime-based business center
As the only such center representing Asia, Amoy International Yacht Banquet has attracted the attention of global media as a result of five core features that contribute immense added value:
- Strategic position in the global economy: Amoy International Yacht Banquet is the only maritime-based business center situated along the New Sea Silk Road, designed to build modern versions of the ancient trade routes that connected Europe and China, as well as its role as an extension of the greater Xiamen Cross-Strait Financial Center;
- Concept: Amoy International Yacht Banquet aims to create a low density, low carbon footprint waterside office area, serving as a new model for business parks and office blocks of the future.
- Rare protected body of water located within a hub city already known for the high value of real estate;
- Bay and sea views;
- Modern architectural designs and property management services provided by CB Richard Ellis form a complete value chain consistent with international expectations.
The five unique features have positioned Amoy International Yacht Banquet as the world’s fifth largest maritime-based business center.
World-class planning with four main business functions
Amoy International Yacht Banquet features forward-looking overall planning. The project, with a total floor area of over 250,000 square meters, highlights four main business features including low-destiny offices, stand-alone buildings for corporate headquarters, waterside-themed commercial blocks and berths for yachts, with approximately 136,060 square meters allocated to office space, 17,000 square meters set up for retail, 2,000parking spaces, and partly already equipped with Tesla charging piles. The assemblage of entertainment, retail and office facilities come together to create a new business complex anchored by the yacht industry, providing business executives from all over the world with a new business platform and living accommodations in close proximity. The community will take its place among the world’s select few high-end maritime-based business centers, following in the steps of those in New York, London, Dubai and Singapore.
