Come, experience extraordinary retail adventure in Bataan
Written by: Vaughn Alviar
Vista Malls has ensured that an extraordinary malling experience would always beckon the people of Bataan.
And it has done this excellently since Vista Mall Bataan, which is under the shopping mall chain of Vista Land and Lifescapes Inc., opened to the public. Today, it has become a significant landmark in the provincial capital being the first large-format commercial center there, boasting a total gross floor area of 94,426 sqm.
It makes itself hard to ignore not only because of its scale but also because of its location along Roman Cupang Superhighway, and its architecture, which rejects the traditional box-type format and embraces open, green spaces.
Such features come custom to all the Vista Mall locations across the Philippines, with the Vista Land conglomerate intentionally wanting to give its “communicities” a space where people would be excited to gather. With this mindset in master planning, it would construct not only beautiful residences for various markets but also cohesive communities that include basic utilities, easy access to other parts of the place, and amazing work-live-play features.
While malls are usually considered by developers as places to get one’s needs or to experience leisure activities, Vista Land has gone ahead and leveled things up. It curated malls that provide goods and services or opportunities not just to have fun, but also spark inspiration among people who pay them a visit.
As such, Vista Mall Bataan and other locations under the brand herald distinct experiences. They awe with their aesthetic Instagram-worthy hubs and details, encourage socialization through many nooks and spaces that can accommodate groups, stoke excitement with a good mix of commercial spaces, and galvanize social circles through creative and engaging events.
So sensational is this approach in the province that the mall has now turned into a gathering place for Balanga City folk, including dwellers in residential areas and students in the schools and universities. It is a go-to even for residents of the adjacent towns of Pilar and Orion, a weekend getaway for other citizens of Bataan, and a happy unexpected stopover for tourists passing through, which run up to thousands (their vehicles, big and small, can conveniently park in Vista Mall’s 956 parking slots).
On any given day, visitors can access local and international brands across nearly 49,000 sqm of gross leasable space. There are stores for fashion (Regatta, Levi’s Bench), gastronomy (Chowking, Classic Savory, Yellow Cab, Krispy Kreme), health and beauty (Lay Bare, Watsons, Executive Optical), technology (Power Mac Center, Rulls), and more.
Making the malling experience even more special are the anchor tenants originating from Vista Land’s own AllValue portfolio. The extensive list begins with All Home, which carries what you may need for your home, and All Day, the spot for your elevated marketday. Brands with more specific offerings are AllGreen, Coffee Project and Dear Joe, Paper & Co., KAL Asian Mart and No Name, Sombrero and Chicken Deli, and AllSports (fitness), etc.
Go pay Vista Mall Bataan a visit to see first-hand the extraordinary malling experience of which we speak.
