It features seamless connection with Chunxi Road Station, the interchange hub of Chengdu’s Metro Lines 2 and 3 and close to 300 top-tier international brands of which 90 of them just made their debuts in Chengdu.
They include a host of the best known international luxury and lifestyle brands, leading designer fashion labels, jewellery and luxury watch brands, skincare and cosmetics centre, Lane Crawford Department Store, trendy eateries featuring international cuisines, a large ice-skating rink, UA Cineplex (IMAX), and a chapel.

Inheriting the Group’s corporate social responsibility philosophy, Chengdu IFS is launching an art and charity crossover event that will attract worldwide attention. Chengdu IFS has collaborated with world-renowned artist Lawrence Argent to build the unprecedented outdoor giant panda art installation in Chengdu, to raise public awareness of the protection of pandas.
The world's biggest 15-meter tall outdoor giant panda with the theme of "I Am Here" has been installed for Chengdu IFS. Currently clinging to the exterior of Chengdu IFS, the gigantic panda has not only drawn both city wide and international attention. To strengthen the public’s awareness of the conservation for pandas, Mr. Argent has also created twenty 40-centimeter-tall.
The curator AllRightsReserved, together with famous photographer Leslie Kee and the creative consultant Sean Kunjambu have invited 20 world-renowned artists and trendsetters to design the unique panda sculptures, and will be exhibited in the “HE-ART for PANDA Charity Auction Exhibition” in Chengdu IFS.
