Chengdu IFS (Chengdu International Finance Square), one of China’s elite urban complexes, stands on the most coveted location within the Chunxi Road’s core business district in the heart of Chengdu, at the intersection of the city’s two main bustling arteries: Hongxing Road and Dacisi Road. With overall gross floor area exceeding 760,000 square meters, Chengdu IFS, a landmark development, consists of a flagship shopping mall (210,000 square meters), premium Grade-A office buildings (275,000 square meters), Niccolo Hotel (about 230 rooms and suites), and IFS Residences (76,000 square meters).
Being the most popular one-stop-shop flagship high-end retailing landmark in Western China, Chengdu IFS has long remained as the best site for international brands to launch their global, national or regional first stores, as well as their first choice for premiering shows and launches of exclusive merchandises. Enabling consumers to access an internationalized, diversified life without even having to leave the city, the shopping mall hosts a selection of best-known international luxury and lifestyle brands, jewelry and luxury watch makers, leading designer fashion labels, children’s wears and accessories, Lane Crawford Department Store, and trendy eateries featuring global culinary offerings. At the same time, the premium shopping destination has been actively maintaining dialogues and interactions with young consumers, through a series of pioneering moves such as the presentation of "CHAO " through business integration and innovation, the introduction of trend-setting, limited-edition offerings, and the planning of multi-themed, cross-over trending activities.
I AM HERE, the outdoor giant panda artistic installation crafted by internationally renowned artist Lawrence Argent for Chengdu IFS’ grand opening, has not only become an urban landmark, but also an icon for the city when promoting itself to the world. The sculpture’s cute, cuddly look makes it a must-visit photo spot for locals, tourists and even celebrities and big shots – affectionately nicknamed "the second giant panda that can never be missed in Chengdu", it has been drawing ever-lasting heat on global social media platforms.
