Developed around the extraordinary Daci Temple, a heritage site with religious significance for over 1,400 years, Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li Chengdu embodies the cultural elements that characterise this historic city. Balancing sacred buildings with modern shops, open spaces with intimate lanes, and calm with excitement, this completely unique complex is another example of Swire Properties’ placemaking expertise.
Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li Chengdu was developed by two leading property developers, Swire Properties Limited and Sino-Ocean Commercial Property, and designed by the Oval Partnership. This retail-led mixed-use development is centred around an open-plan, lane-driven mall that provides visitors with a myriad of shopping and leisure experiences. It has over 1.3 million sq ft of gross floor area and is directly connected to the Chengdu Metro Chunxi Road station.
The complex’s design pays homage to traditional Sichuan architecture but also takes an innovative, modern approach - harmonising the historical significance of the site with the commercial development to ensure long-term value creation. Six traditional courtyards and buildings within the site have been preserved and revitalised to augment the heritage of the 16-century-old Daci Temple located at the heart of the portfolio. Surrounding the Temple are over 300 vibrant retail outlets and eateries, as well as The Temple House, a boutique hotel that is part of the Swire Hotels House Collective, with 100 guest rooms and 42 serviced apartments.
