Malaysia’s Berjaya Land Bhd (BLand) is building the world’s biggest integrated mall complex estimated to be worth about MYR7.5 billion on a 32ha site in China’s Hebei Province, its chief said.

Called Great Mall of China, the 18.5 million sq ft development, which is similar to the concept of Berjaya Times Square in Kuala Lumpur, is expected to be completed within the next five years, said BLand chief executive officer Datuk Francis Ng Sooi Lin.

Once completed, the project will feature more than two million sq ft of retail space, two hotels, two serviced apartments, office towers, convention centre, theatre and a parking complex.
