Frasers Hospitality, the hospitality arm of property group Frasers Centrepoint Limited,
has opened a gold-standard serviced residence located at the heart of Shanghai’s central business district.
The five-tower Fraser Suites Top Glory, Shanghai with 317 luxuriously-furnished serviced residences is situated in the bustling Lujiazui CBD, with
a commanding view of the city’s celebrated Bund. It is owned by COFCO, one of China’s most widely-diversified conglomerates and listed among
Fortune Magazine’s Global 500 Companies.
Fraser Suites Top Glory, Shanghai is the eighth property under the Fraser brand in China; with another five to be opened by 2010.
“In spite of the
global economic issues, we are still extremely bullish about China,”
said Mr Choe Peng Sum, CEO of Frasers Hospitality. “In fact, earlier we had
announced 12 China properties by 2010 but as of now it is 13 and we are still signing on more properties.”
“China is simply the world’s largest growth engine. The tremendous growth of economies like China and India is an ‘internal support base’ for the
rest of the Asian economies, and a buffer from the full impact of the economic malaise sweeping the world.”
Shanghai is the industrial, financial, and commercial centre of China. It has a population of some 17.5 million, not including up to three million
visitors who are in the city on any given day.
Fraser Suites Top Glory, Shanghai provides five-star luxury and service and combines this with the space of an apartment, offering spacious
two, three and four-bedroom apartments and penthouses. Every apartment comes with living room, dining room and a fully-equipped kitchen and a
comprehensive home entertainment system, broadband Internet access with full security including keycard access for elevators and in-room
electronic safe. Every apartment is fitted with a clothes washer and dryer.
In addition, residents can enjoy a full range of facilities, including tennis courts, business centre, outdoor and indoor heated swimming pools, spa
and fitness club complete with aerobics room, steam and sauna, an integrated café and lounge, library, games room, children’s playground and
