Chairman and Managing Principal, Gaw Capital
In March 2018, Gaw Capital Partners officially started to operate 17 assets and facilities near the public estates and established “People’s Place”.
“People’s Place” strives to collaborate with the local communities in enshrining the community spirit and consolidating the neighbourhood’s camaraderie; we view the 17 shopping centres as publicly beneficial projects that concurrently serve as a form of long-term investment.
Our vision is as follow: through professional asset management and encouraging proactive social participation, we seek to transform each individual shopping centre into the community hub of their respective district. Our team has been assiduously engaging and consulting stakeholders, and – through deepening our understanding of what the neighbourhood desires – seek to gradually improve the neighbourhood facilities and the shopping centres’ environments.
Looking into the future, People’s Place aspires to strengthen the ties and sense of belonging of residents towards their communities; through actively shouldering our share of corporate social responsibility, we seek to build viable social networks and communities founded upon principles of reciprocity and compassion.
