Shopping mall in Sinzuoying Station to open tomorrow

By Shelley Shan  /  Staff reporter

The Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) yesterday announced that its Sinzuoying Station shopping mall will open tomorrow.

The station is used by the TRA, the Taiwan High-Speed Rail Corp and the Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit System.

The TRA said that the renovate-operate-transfer contract to build the mall was won by Global Mall, which built a similar one in the Banciao Rail Station (板橋).

The TRA said the Sinzuoying mall has an area of about 2,600 ping (8,589m2) and features clothing shops, bookstores, children’s facilities and a food court.

The contractor paid a one-time royalty of NT$4.2 million (US$140,200 at current exchange rates) for the exclusive righs to the facility, and has to pay a royalty from its yearly revenue.

The TRA said that the contractor had set a revenue target of NT$700 million for this year.

The two malls, along with the one at Taipei Main Station, could generate NT$200 million in revenue for the TRA per year.
