BEIJING, Dec. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ucommune International Ltd. (NASDAQ: UK) ("Ucommune" or the "Company"), a leading agile office space manager and provider in China, today announced that the Company has entered into a cooperation agreement (the "Agreement") with Sanhe Metro Land Zhiyuan Real Estate Company Limited, a subsidiary of real estate company Metro Land Corporate Ltd. (Shanghai Stock Exchange code: 600683) to jointly develop the "Zhuojun-Ucommune" project (the "Project") in Hebei, China.
According to the Agreement, the formal cooperation between Ucommune and Sanhe Metro Land Zhiyuan Real Estate Company Limited will commence on January 1, 2022 and last until June 30, 2023. The 41,599-square-meter asset-light project marks the 16th of Ucommune's projects with a managed area of over 10,000-square-meters.
"Zhuojun-Ucommune" is a smart city project combining leisure, office, shopping, and lifestyle with a wide range of amenities including dining, retail, and entertainment. The Project is located in a science park in northern Yanjiao in Hebei, China. Northern Yanjiao resides within the Beijing Municipal Administrative Center and accommodates the headquarters of many state-owned enterprises, high-tech companies, and emerging technology businesses. "Zhuojun-Ucommune" is well positioned to accommodate the rising demand for offices, apartments, and complementary services as the science park in which the Project is located evolves into northern Yanjiao's CBD. The Company will leverage its brand value and platform resources to provide a broad range of managed services to its landlord partner, including design, decoration, marketing, smart management systems, community events, and value-added services for tenants.
Mr. Jing Yan, Project Manager of Metro Land Corporate Ltd. and "Zhuojun-Ucommune", commented, "One of the main reasons for us partnering with Ucommune to develop the Project is its strong brand image. By leveraging Ucommune's prestige in the office industry, we can reduce marketing costs and accelerate the tenant acquisition process. Our cooperation with such a prominent brand will allow us to expedite occupancy rate growth and attract a greater number of premium enterprises as tenants, adding further value to the Project."
Dr. Daqing Mao, Founder of Ucommune, stated, "By leveraging our asset-light business model and our operational capabilities, we are able to add significant value for our real estate developer partners. The effectiveness of our business model is evident from the quantity of our mature projects and the increasing number of real estate developers who are choosing to work with us. Going forward, we expect to fully utilize our competitive advantage in operations management, add value to assets, and deliver mutual benefits and win-win results for Ucommune and our landlord partners."
