Ayala Malls Legazpi

This sum­mer, Ayala Malls wel­comes two new ad­di­tions to its list of dis­tinc­tive and world-class shop­ping cen­ters — Ayala Malls Legazpi in Al­bay and the sec­ond phase of UP Town Cen­ter in Que­zon City.

Touch­down, Legazpi City

Ayala Malls, which has al­ways been loved and trusted by its con­sumers, con­tin­ues to be felt in more ter­ri­to­ries as it es­tab­lishes its pres­ence in key lo­ca­tions such as the Bi­col re­gion. In line with Ayala Land, Inc.’s over­all growth strat­egy of mar­ket and ge­o­graphic ex­pan­sion, the brand opened Ayala Malls Legazpi in Al­bay on April 19, 2016. The com­pany pre­vi­ously launched its pro­vin­cial malls in Cebu, Pam­panga, Davao, Zam­bales, Ca­gayan De Oro, Ba­colod, and Iloilo.

The project is a part­ner­ship with the LCC Group of Com­pa­nies (LCC), a pi­o­neer re­tailer in the Bi­col re­gion. The mall sits on a 1.4-hectare lot with more than 29,000 sqm of gross leasable area with LCC as its Su­per­mar­ket and Depart­ment Store an­chor.

Ayala Malls Legazpi aims to be the re­gion’s mall of choice by pro­vid­ing a unique shop­ping, din­ing and en­ter­tain­ment ex­pe­ri­ence to the Bi­colanos. The mall will of­fer over 200 stores show­cas­ing the best of lo­cal, home­grown con­cepts and af­ford­able fash­ion and for­eign la­bels. More­over, the mix shall fea­ture “first in Bi­col branches” of top din­ing, ser­vice and spe­cialty brands in ad­di­tion to four dig­i­tal cine­mas, Time­zone, and lower ground park­ing.

The build­ing boasts of a four-story high atrium that was de­signed for shop­pers to en­joy nat­u­ral light­ing and ven­ti­la­tion, adore Ayala Mall’s sig­na­ture events, and

A teen-spir­ited mall

Af­ter more than two years of serv­ing the needs and life­styles of the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity, es­pe­cially the stu­dents, UP Town Cen­ter comes nearly com­plete with the open­ing of its sec­ond phase last May 19.

In­spired by the Stan­ford Univer­sity Town Cen­ter in Cal­i­for­nia, the de­vel­op­ment is built in part­ner­ship with the Univer­sity of the Philip­pines to bring to­gether the re­tail in­dus­try and the academe. The re­tail-of­fice-aca­demic sup­port mix en­sures that the needs of the UP com­mu­nity are pro­vided for and within reach. Prox­im­ity to Katipunan and CP Gar­cia Av­enue, nearby uni­ver­si­ties, res­i­den­tial en­claves and other in­sti­tu­tions and of­fices es­tab­lishes its role as a town cen­ter be­yond the univer­sity.

Aside from of­fer­ing a venue where the stu­dents can converge and ex­press their ideas through events, ex­hibits, con­certs and other shows, the mall fea­tures strong brands sup­ported by the teens and af­ford­able fa­vorites of the com­mu­nity.

For the sec­ond phase, the mall has in­cor­po­rated more restau­rants with home­grown con­cepts, start-up busi­nesses and global brands such as H&M, Uniqlo and Mango, which stu­dents have been clam­or­ing for. In part­ner­ship with Globe and Spo­tify, there is also a Stu­dent Lounge where the youth can gather and ex­press them­selves. Fi­nally, an­other ma­jor ad­di­tion to UP Town Cen­ter is the highly-an­tic­i­pated brand-new cine­mas avail­able in four for­mats: 2D, 3D, At­mos and 4DX.
