Dubai-based global developer Emaar and Beijing New Aeropolis Holdings (BNA) are developing a business and tourism complex in the Aero-Economic Area of Beijing Daxing International Airport.

The project will include retail, entertainment, sport, art and lifestyle, as well as offices and hotels. The Aero-Economic Area of Beijing Daxing International Airport is set to be the largest airport in the world.

At a ceremony held at the China National International Convention Centre, Emaar and BNA signed a memorandum of understanding to develop the tourist attraction.

Emaar, a leading global property developer and provider of premium lifestyles, is present in 13 countries, and has built landmark projects in the Middle East, North Africa, the United States, Europe and South Asia.
