Hainan Island Hangxiang Investment Development Co. Ltd. has changed its controlling shareholder from the HNA Property Group to a Hainan-based real estate subsidiary of Sunac.

The target company developed Wanghai Science and Technology Square in Haikou city in Hainan, where HNA Group formerly held its headquarters.
