Abreeza Mall

Abreeza up close

I wrote the first interview with the architects of Abreeza.  But it took a long time for me to go and finally visit, since I come a long way off from Bangkal and I don’t really go to malls much.  So I didn’t attend its opening, and the cinema launch, and let the crowd rush and curiosity settle down first.

Ayala Land’s decision to forge a joint venture with the Floreindos in Davao is due to favorable factors: Davao is identified as the second most lucrative market in the Visayas-Mindanao area, next to Cebu. There is a high concentration of the ABC market , approximately 19% percent of the total population of Davao. Second, the city is considered the educational hub of Mindanao with varied choices of good colleges and universities. Davao is also considered the gateway to the …
