Welcome to Ingka Centres in China
Ingka Centres entered the Chinese market in 2009, with our country service office located in Shanghai. Ingka Centres partners with IKEA to develop meeting places for the many people in China.
LIVAT, our shopping centre brand in China, means “a happy party” in Swedish. We strive to make LIVAT a “Leader in Meeting Places in China”.
Ingka Centres currently has three regional shopping centres in China that total 533,000m2 GLA. Together, Wuxi (opened in June 2014), Beijing (opened in December 2014), and Wuhan (opened in April 2015) represent a total investment of over RMB 10 billion.
All of our LIVAT centres include an IKEA store and a hypermarket, international and Chinese fashion brands, electronics and sports retailers, an important restaurant and cafe component, a cinema and other entertainment venues, all under one roof. A typical LIVAT centre has 350-400 stores distributed over 150,000 m² -200,000 m² GLA with 3500 – 6800 parking spaces. Our centres are rich with concepts for children, including free kiddy lands, family rooms and ice rink. We are creating not only regional shopping centres, but also the top choice for shopping and entertainment – truly a great place where the many people meet!
We currently have three mixed-use projects under development in China. Changsha is scheduled to open early 2020, both Shanghai and Xi’an have a planned opening date in 2022. They will include not only a LIVAT centre and an IKEA store, but also IKEA-inspired offices and apartments. All this together will bring us closer to the community where we will create a meeting place for the many!
