New South China Mall City Life

Wishlisted by Matt Mayer

In 2005, the largest shopping mall in the world opened in Dongguang at a cost of $1.3 billion, but for the first ten years of its life was almost empty. Artificial canals became green with algae. In 2011, the mall was at 1% occupancy. Eventually, after a pivot towards attracting lower to middle class tenants, the mall started to fill up since 2017 and now attracts families with its mix of cinemas, retail and F&B.
