The Nanjing World Trade Center is being developed by The F&T Group and its partners, who are investing in the project together with a real estate fund managed by J.P. Morgan Asset Management – Global Real Assets. In September 2007, the group secured a project location on the southern part of the new Hexi CBD. The Hexi CBD is often regarded as the “Pudong” of Nanjing, in part due to the strong desire on the part of the government to have it become a financial district. This World Trade Center project has been authorized and licensed by the World Trade Center Association to become the Nanjing World Trade Center. The chosen location is already home to many high-rise office buildings, a park, and one of the largest convention centers in China. The project is scheduled to break ground in 2010 and be completed by 2015.
The development plan encompasses a GFA of approximately 4 million square feet, consisting of a Class A office tower, a serviced apartment complex, a retail center, and a five-star hotel.
