On Dec. 22, 2016, Cathay Life Insurance Co., Ltd. and GLORIA HOTEL GROUP together launched the grand opening of GLORIA OUTLETS-second phase. On the opening day, Taoyuan City Mayor Wen-Tsan Cheng, BOHSR Director General Hsiang-Lin Hu, GLORIA HOTEL GROUP CEO Chiung-Fu Chen and Cathay Life Insurance Co., Ltd. General Manager Ming-Ho Hsiung participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony. In addition, well-known celebrities, Sharon Hsu, Lure Hsu, Sandia Hsu and Derek Chang were invited to the event, making it a star-studded grand opening.
In the first phase of GLORIA OUTLETS, there were already 105 brands that entered the park. In the second phase, additional 65 brands will enter. Since the opening of the first phase, the targets of 4 billion revenue and 7 million customers have both been achieved. It is estimated that after the opening of the second phase, 7 billion revenue and 9 million customers will be reached. Furthermore, this project has won the honor of second place in the “Taiwan Service Oscar” by Global Views Monthly. After gradual completion of relevant facilities, the park will definitely motivate even stronger development and engagement powers, enhancing tourism and retail industry in Taoyuan.
The 22-hectare HSR Taoyuan Commercial/Manufacturing Park is mainly a world-class American open-air leisure and shopping village. In the future, it may extend to a park consisting of a movie theater, aquarium, five-star hotel and corporate headquarters. On the other hand, Taoyuan City Government is planning to establish a municipal art museum, Hengshan Calligraphy Museum, Taoyuan World Trade Center and Asia Silicon Valley Project which will have a great clustering effect on the region. The region will become an important entrance and exit of Taoyuan and we are also looking forward to thriving development of the HSR Station District.
