Xinyuan Real Estate Co., Ltd. Acquires Parcel Of Land In Beijing

BEIJING, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Xinyuan Real Estate Co., Ltd. ("Xinyuan" or "the Company") (NYSE: XIN), a residential real estate developer with a focus on high growth, affordable housing for middle-income Chinese residents, today announced that on September 29, 2012 it has acquired via auction a parcel of land in Beijing, the capital of the People's Republic of China.

Xinyuan paid a total of RMB1,030 million ( US$162.4 million) for the unencumbered land use rights for the parcel, which offers a total site area of 57,862 square meters. Based on pre-planning of the proposed development, the estimated gross floor area is approximately 130,000 square meters, of which, 10,500 square meters are public rental housing which will be purchased by the Beijing government at a fixed price. This project is located in Daxing District, which is forty minutes from the center of town via Subway Line 4 with a station just 500 meters from the project.

"We are excited to acquire our first development in Beijing. With the implementation of government housing price restriction policies over the last two and a half years, we believe that land prices in Beijing have reached reasonable levels. The location of the project is between the southern 5 th and 6 th ring roads with an existing subway station close by. Our target customer segment will be young first-time home buyers, young couples and commuters working downtown who would like to establish a family. In conformance with XIN's positioning strategy, we will build smaller-sized, affordable apartments for Beijing commuters. With our corporate headquarters in Beijing, we believe this project will promote corporate branding, enrich our product portfolio, and help build a solid project team in a highly competitive market. All of these factors are of strategic importance for XIN's competitiveness in the future," said Mr. Yong Zhang.
