Overview

SOCAM's property business is entirely focused on the Chinese Mainland. We were the first mover in the special situation market segment and our accumulated experience and expertise are well-recognised in the industry. 

In order to unlock asset value, SOCAM has been closely monitoring market conditions and divestment opportunities since the announcement of the strategic monetisation plan of our portfolio in March 2013. As of today, the Group has entered the final phase of monetisating our property assets. Our current focus is on revamping our retail properties to enhance values. 

Special Situation Projects
Our special situation projects focus primarily on the acquisition and development of medium-to-large-scale high quality property in special situations. Since the projects are in prime locations of major and secondary cities in the Chinese Mainland with shorter development cycles, this business model allows us to achieve quick asset turnover. Backed by our wholly-owned investment management arm, SOCAM Asset Management Limited, project acquisitions and financial restructuring are professionally set to support our construction work, project management, as well as sales and marketing of special situation projects.

Knowledge Community Development
As early as 2008, SOCAM saw a good market opportunity in the development of a knowledge hub in Dalian, a major seaport in northeast China and one of the country’s fast growing regions.

Dalian Tiandi is a visionary large-scale knowledge community developed jointly by Shui On Land, SOCAM and the Yida Group in which SOCAM has a 22% interest. As part of the monetisation strategy, SOCAM disposed of its share in the project in December 2017 and the transaction was completed subsequently.
