SINGAPORE'S sovereign wealth fund GIC and Shinsegae, a top-tier South Korean retail player, through their affiliates, have entered into a land sale and purchase agreement at US$197 million to develop a prime retail mall in the Incheon Free Economic Zone.
The acquired land area covers 59,730 square metres and is centrally located in the international business district of Songdo, with close proximity to the subway station, bus terminal and expressways.
