SHANGHAI will become home to the world's largest integrated indoor winter resort in 2018, to be known as Winterland Shanghai.
The resort is a project by Singapore-based property developer KOP Properties and will reportedly cost 13.5 billion yuan (US$2.2 billion).
According to Singapore broadsheet The Straits Times, Winterland Shanghai will feature the world’s longest indoor ski trail, a water park, a tree-lined hiking trail and a beach club.
The paper quoted company chairman Ong Chih Ching as saying that the resort would also offer housing, office, retail and hotel space besides its winter attractions.
KOP has inked an agreement with a local district government in Shanghai for the resort, and construction on the 18-hectare piece of land is scheduled to start in 3Q2014.
