World's first 'IKEA Complex' in Changsha to open soon!

Since WNIC last posted about IKEA coming to Changsha -back in November 2015- there has finally been movement on its construction and, to our local delight, the announcement of the first ever 'IKEA Complex' in the world. Good for Changsharen, we say!

So, the "world's first Ikea complex" the Changsha "Ikea Livat Complex" is currently under construction.

The Changsha Ikea Livat Complex is composed of three sections: a Livat Center for shopping, an Ikea store, and an innovative apartment. The total building area is 400,000 square meters.

The Livat Center in Changsha will cooperate with around 350 commercial tenants and introduce national and international brands involved in food, fashion, entertainment, sports and education. The innovative apartment is Ikea's first attempt at providing packaged living solutions for consumers. A total of 550 Ikea-style suites will be available as accommodation for young entrepreneurs.

"Changsha's business environment and service standards are on par with developed cities such as Guangzhou and Shanghai," said Wang Tao, project leader. Hunan Xiangjiang New Area is a convenient location with a sustainable development strategy, and it shares the same ideals as Ikea to improve people's living environment and make the world a better place.

Ikea will open in the second half of this year, while the Livat Center and innovative apartment will be made available to the public in the latter half of 2020.

The complex will be located at 

No. 253 Yanghu Road, Yueli District, Changsha
