Ascott crosses 35,000 apartment units globally milestone

CapitaLand’s wholly-owned serviced residence business unit, Ascott, has crossed its milestone of having 35,000 apartment units globally as it steps up its growth in China by securing contracts to manage four more properties with over 900 apartment units in Taiyuan, Beijing, Shanghai and Dalian.

Ascott has secured its first serviced residence in Taiyuan, the 170-unit Ascott Taiyuan which is slated to open in 2018, the 195-unit Ascott Riverside Garden Beijing and 342-unit Somerset Sunland Shanghai which are both slated to open in 2016, and an operating property in Dalian which has been rebranded as a 195-unit Somerset Grand Central Dalian.

The four new properties will further strengthen Ascott’s leadership position as the largest international serviced residence owner-operator in China and in the world. In China, Ascott’s portfolio will expand to more than 11,600 apartment units in 64 properties across 21 cities.
