MANILA, Philippines – Century Properties Group, Inc. is set to open Century City Mall in the last quarter of 2013, marking its entry into retail development while expanding its portfolio of upmarket projects. “It will be the most exciting retail development in Makati after many years. Our team of designers has gone through great lengths to create a place that is truly special and offer a wholly distinct retail, leisure and dining experience — from its design to its store mix as well as lifestyle concepts,” Century Properties Co-COO Marco Antonio said.
The upscale lifestyle center will be located inside the 3.4-hectare Century City, which is also home to the company’s high-end developments Gramercy Residences, Knightsbridge Residences, Milano Residences and Trump Tower.
Residents of the newly completed Gramercy and the soon-to-open Knightsbridge Residences will be among the first to experience the new lifestyle hub, a uniquely-shaped iconic structure that is now visible on Kalayaan Avenue. Likewise, patients and doctors at the soon-to-open Centuria Medical Makati, an outpatient medical arts center at Century City, will enjoy the new shopping and dining experience that the mall will offer.
Century City Mall will also immediately cater to the surrounding communities of Urdaneta Village, Salcedo Village, Bel-Air 1 and 2, and San Miguel Village, as well as some areas in nearby Mandaluyong City.Century Properties has infused over P1 billion for the project, which was designed by the Singapore-based Broadway Malyan in collaboration with Century’s professional architecture and design team. “Century City Mall will exemplify the best in modern retail design and architecture, while taking great care in providing retail convenience and spaces that encourage people interaction,” Antonio added. A series of unique social spaces reminiscent of private patios are presented as landscaped terraces that externally step up through the building. These landscaped areas are envisioned to provide visitors with a congenial setting to savor delectable world cuisines, and a welcome respite from the retail activity that takes place within. More than 1,400 square meters of space in the mall basement has been dedicated to a new concept supermarket.
Luxury retail brands will occupy the mall’s first level, while lifestyle fashion brands will be on the second floor. The third level will house cinemas that utilize the latest innovations in film technology, one of which will be an ultra exclusive 80-seater theater with its own lounge. The third level will also have retail stores such as the largest Apple reseller in Southeast Asia as well as food and beverage shops. Al fresco dining will be situated on the fourth level, while the fifth level will have a rooftop bar.
Three basement levels will be dedicated to parking space. The mall will also offer full valet service for added customer ease. Comfort, too, is assured at Century City Mall as it enjoys plenty of natural light and ventilation.
“We have conceived Century City Mall to be the heart of the entire Century City development. Like all the towers there, and even in all the developments that we have introduced to the market, it will be creatively designed to be an edifice worthy of international pride. We’d like to change the way people view going to the mall through our exciting retail mix, lively cinematic environments, world-class restaurants, generous outdoor spaces, seamless WiFi and the latest smart technologies. We would even provide a shuttle service to keep our customers connected. This is a lifestyle destination whose focus is a distinguished customer experience,”Antonio said.
