On October 1, 2018, Mitsui Fudosan Co. announced its plan to conduct the grand opening of Mitsui Outlet Park Taichung Port, central Taiwan’s largest outlet mall, on December 12, 2018, with certain stores scheduled to open for business in late November 2018.

The facility is situated in Taichung, the island’s second largest city, and will be the first full-scale retail facility in the country to be developed in a port area. It is located adjacent to the Taichung Port ferry terminal, nine kilometers from Taichung Airport, with good access to the highway interchange and main arterial roads, as well as the high-speed rail line.

The Taichung Port area is a lively area that attracts many tourists due to its attractions, which include the Gaowei Wetlands, renowned for their beautiful sunsets, and the Wuci Fishery Harbor, which is famous for its tourist fish market. Development plans for the area raise expectations of further developments, including the planned construction of an adjacent yacht club and a shuttle bus route around tourist sites in the port area.

Mitsui Outlet Park Linkou, which opened in 2016, has continued to perform favorably with sustained growth in sales. Accordingly, there are extremely strong expectations for Mitsui Outlet Park in the local market.

The most successful projects will be those that incorporates work, life, shop, play, and access to services at inner-city locations.
