A cup of tea with Calvin Lai (Part 1)


Natural born leader and charismatic Chinatown identity Calvin Lai is the principal of Belle Property Adelaide City.
Recently Belle Property Adelaide City announced they are a major sponsor of Chinatown Adelaide Lunar New Year 2017.

We took some time to have a cup of tea and chat with Calvin about the coming LNY celebrations and what’s happening in Chinatown.

As a sponsor of the coming LNY celebration in Chinatown, how do we improve Chinatown to become a major Adelaide city attraction?

Chinatown and the Central Market Precinct already attract domestic and international attention as unique retail venue and dining destination. Our business community would like to improve that experience.

mr-calvin-lai-1In your opinion, what can we do?
Our international staff are all very familiar with what Grote and Gouger Street have to offer and how it compares highly with other Chinatown in SE Asia.
We already know that luxury tourists and HNWI “high net worth individuals” are already visiting Chinatown, Grote and Gouger Street.
So much seafood, Asian cuisine, fresh produce, fine dining and karaoke.
It’s already popular.

We get excellent feedback about the Chinatown as most of our property agents are coming from Asian countries, such as Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, and China who understand the tourists, investor property buyers’ needs and buying behaviour.
With the new Central Adelaide and other premium CBD developments and now with the start of direct flights by the China Southern Airlines, increased international student and tourism numbers. We are confident and excited with the Adelaide’s real estate market in 2017.

Yes, the Central Adelaide apartments, we have been keeping an eye on that. Top location in Grote Street? How would you pitch to me to buy a Central Adelaide apartment?
