Hong Kong’s Yuen Long retail landscape will expand to include two new malls this summer. YOHO Mix and YOHO Plus, which will have a total area of 1.2 million square feet, will be combined with the existing YOHO MALL to create a mega shopping district in the New Territories neighbourhood, according to local media reports.

YOHO Mix will house 70 shops across a 110,000 square feet area. Most of the spaces will be dedicated to speciality restaurants, culture, and the arts. Foodies can look forward to dining at souffle pancake brand Fufuland, which will open its first store in Hong Kong at this mall. Other restaurants include fusion chain Peko Pek, Japanese barbecue restaurant Yakiniku Kakura, and noodle shop Kokoro Tokyo Mazesoba.

The new malls will be close to YOHO Mall and have plenty of green space.

However, YOHO Plus will be smaller at 40,000 square feet and will be home to 40 stores. This shopping mall will have salons and essential stores to cater to the needs of residents in the area, as well as educational centres. Shoppers and other visitors can also check out the action at the outdoor plaza called Mix Hall spanning 10,000 square feet that will host concerts and exhibitions. The venue will have lighting effects that will be synchronised to music, as well as an LED screen that will complement performances.

As with most of the newer malls in Hong Kong, these two new spaces will have plenty of green space — 180,000 square feet to be exact, with eight themed facilities. Both malls will also connect to four surrounding residential areas and the nearest MTR station.
