Ingka Centers launches seventh Meeting Place in China

Ingka Centers reveals plans for Livat Kunming, a new meeting place in Kunming, the capital of the Yunnan province, China.

The seventh meeting place in China in the company’s portfolio was created within the existing IKEA store, providing a 46,500 sq m GLA space. Livat Kunming adapts traditional Scandinavian design values to create modern and functional space. The new destination offers a blend of cuisine, digital services, and family-friendly experiences. The opening of Livat Kunming will also create around 3,000 jobs, providing a number of employment opportunities for the local community. 

Surrounded by a number of developed residential communities and several office buildings, Livat Kunming houses a range of local and global brands including Tesla, MLB, and Huawei. Responding to consumers’ needs for a more diversified dining experience, more than 40% of the tenant mix in the new meeting place are cafes and restaurants.

Cindy Andersen, Ingka Centers’ Managing Director commented: “We’re delighted to begin the year with the launch of our seventh meeting place in China and I’d like to congratulate the team for the dedication and passion that they have put into their work on this project. 

Livat Kunming is a fantastic example of how we’re creating meeting places across the world which are tailor-made to suit the needs of individual communities, in all shapes and sizes. China remains a key market for us, and we’re extremely excited to grow our presence here.”
