The property, located in the Central Business District (CBD) in Chaoyang District, was acquired in October 2022, and CLI implemented an asset enhancement initiative to upgrade facilities and improve operational efficiencies. 

Despite challenges, CLI successfully brought in AIA as a joint venture partner, emphasizing the trust capital partners have in CLI's on-the-ground expertise. 

This collaboration follows AIA's investment in one of CLI's RMB funds in 2022. 

CLI continues to focus on being asset-light and capital-efficient while expanding its fund management business. In the past year, CLI has recycled over S$559m in capital in China, divesting stakes in various assets.
