V City, Hong Kong

“A signage solution for The Very Place to Go”

It has been 10 years since there was a new shopping mall in Tuen Mun. V city, strategically located atop Tuen Mun MTR Station, Light Rail Station and a major transportation hub, is Sun Hung Kai Properties’ brand new flagship shopping mall in the New Territories West. V City will introduce new and foreign retailers with a modern lifestyle concept that appeals to both local young people and tourists.

Designed by the renowned Benoy, V City has an area of 300,000 square feet with over 130 shops on 3 floors. The outer wall is 300 metres long and the designer has used extra-large windows for its design. The transparent, bright environment will connect with the outdoors and create a comfortable and spacious shopping area with a 3.7-metre high concourse and six-metre pedestrian passage. It will also have the largest LED display in the district that can change images to match the current theme of the shopping mall and provide the latest information about special offers, promotions and activities.

Macostar provided a bespoke engineering solution to the mall’s signage support and hanging system. Motorised pile-winding winches with high safety factor, which are widely used in theatres and TV studios, were chosen to hang all forms of promotional signage and displays in great adjustability and versatility. To ensure a clean appearance in the retail and leisure environment, winches at the pedestrian passage were discreetly mounted inside the reflected ceiling. Each hanging point fits with a decorative ceiling cover and perfectly blends into the surroundings. Signage and retail decoration can also be positioned easily, accurately and safely using a wireless handheld remote.

Scope of work:

Macostar was responsible for the design, supply and installation of the motorised winch system with wireless remote control for promotional signage at 2/F ceiling void, and 6/F skylight at V City.
