Megaworld’s P2-B mall in Southwoods set for October opening
Property developer Megaworld will open a P2-billion lifestyle mall at the 561-hectare Southwoods City along the boundary of Biñan, Laguna and Carmona, Cavite in October, company officials said on Thursday.
Dubbed the Southwoods Mall—its 14th such project—the facility offers 58,000 square meters of shopping, dining, entertainment and leisure just 30 minutes south of the cities of Makati and Taguig, and 35 minutes away from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport via the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX).
It will feature a 24-hour Food Hall, four state-of-the-art cinemas, a department store, supermarket, hardware store, toy store and its own transport hub.
“Southwoods Mall will be easily accessible to those living in the south,” Megaworld senior vice president Kevin Tan said in a statement. “It is actually the first big mall along SLEX that you can go to after Alabang.”
“We are excited to open the doors of our first full-scale lifestyle mall in the south,” added Tan who is also the head of Megaworld’s Lifestyle Malls unit.
The three-level mall is highlighted by an innovative contemporary design with indoor
greenery. The Roof Deck Garden at the third level will offer open spaces and al fresco areas for dining surrounded by manicured gardens.
“We envision this mall to be major dining destination as we welcome some global dining brands and homegrown restaurant concepts,” Tan said. “This will be another showcase of how we want our next lifestyle malls will look like, keeping in mind the distinct character of every township that we build.”
Southwoods Mall is situated in an area characterized by rapidly growing communities of Cavite and Laguna, as well as the cities of Muntinlupa and Las Piñas. Aside from its close proximity to SLEX’s Southwoods Exit, it is surrounded by educational institutions, places of worship, hospitals, government offices and recreational facilities such as the Southwoods Golf and Country Club, Southwoods Sports Club and Splash Island.
With the inclusion of Southwoods Mall, Megaworld now has 14 malls and commercial properties across the country.
“We build our malls and commercial properties to primarily cater to those who live, work and play in our townships,” Tan said. “This is what makes our lifestyle malls unique and sustainable.” JPV
