Actor Robert De Niro and his son are part of a group that plans to develop a huge property project in a historic area of Shanghai, China.
It's being called Project 179 and will end up being a 850,000 square-foot complex when fully realized in 2016.
The complex will include a boutique hotel, restaurants, retail stores, a movie theater and a performing arts center.
De Niro was in Shanghai Thursday for a signing ceremony.
"By ensuring a design that reflects the vibrant history of Shanghai, Project 179 can serve as a jewel in its crown: ushering in a bright future while paying homage to its rich and storied past,” De Niro said.
The complex will transform a strip of land along the river. It will eventually include four buildings.
Tribeca Enterprises is cooperating with the government-backed Shanghai Bund Investment Group, which won the right to develop the property.
De Niro has helped develop the successful Greenwich Hotel in New York, along with other properties.
