Ayala Central Bloc opens today

Friday December 6, 2019

Ayala Malls Central Bloc opens today with majority of its tenants to welcome the Christmas shopping season.

The five-storey shopping mall, located at the heart of Cebu IT Park in Lahug is Ayala’s fifth regional mall in Visayas and Mindanao, and the second for Cebu.

The mall is integrated within a building with a hotel (Seda Hotel) and spaces ready for BPO offices.

It features four specialty zones: “Food Choices”, “Trading Bloc”, “Wellness”, and “Service Avenue”, a Chapel. It has four cinemas, an indoor and outdoor activity center, and the outdoor “Corte Garden”, and a Trading Bloc which houses start-up and homegrown retailers, and other fresh and new shopping experience features.

“There’s a lot of things to expect in our new mall. We have a lot of specialty stores opening, as well as homegrown brands. We are targeting a different market here so the tenant mix is carefully chosen,” said Ayala Malls Visayas and Mindanao operations head Clavel Tongco in an earlier interview.

Because the mall is catering to different market set-up, its operation schedule is from 11 in the morning to 11 in the evening.

The Central Bloc development will have 45,000 square meters of retail gross leasable area (GLA) and an office GLA of 72,000 sq.m.

Central Bloc is developed by Central Bloc Developers, Inc., which will also give rise to two new BPO office towers within the area. (THE FREEMAN)
