Ayala Land Inc. (ALI) recently completed the third wing of Ayala Malls Solenad, the developer’s signature mall in Nuvali, Sta. Rosa.
Positioned as the next go-to mall for families and residents in Laguna, Tagaytay, Batangas, and Muntinlupa, the mall has over 40,000 sqm of retail space poised to feature local and global brands, dining options, and entertainment for the whole family.
Furnished with walkways, open-air spaces, bike lanes and pocket gardens, the mall encourages a more active and outdoorsy outlook. It has a two-hectare Activity Park to boast of -- a landscaped space where families, professionals, and students can relax in. The park has an atrium for concerts, fairs, exhibits, and other events, while its smaller pocket gardens can host more intimate activities. A playground is on hand, furnished with spring rides, a slide, and a glow-in-the-dark swing set.
"When we were planning this new mall, we really wanted something different from what you would find in the retail offerings in Sta. Rosa," said Bobby Dy, ALI President and CEO.
"True enough, we've differentiated ourselves. This is going to be a highly pedestrian–friendly mall, with a lot of open spaces and shopping and dining options," said Dy. "The mix of offerings is also going to be unique and different. We will feature a Fiesta Market and a Hawker's Market, aside from main global brands that will be part of the mix."
Sta. Rosa mayor Hon. Arlene Arcillas likewise issued a short speech at the ceremonial opening. "Nuvali is considered as one of the top five destinations in the Philippines now, and I'm very proud and grateful that Ayala Land has supported us in developing Sta. Rosa into a world-class and vibrant district," said Arcillas. "I thank Ayala Land for believing in the city of Sta. Rosa. This is the future of Sta. Rosa."
