Even we don’t know what’s going on. All we know is that there’s an undisclosed international developer entering the retail game in Manila, and they’re planning something big.
How big? Sources say that the 1,000-retailer target will enable “Mallzilla” to showcase a full spectrum of brands. Global power brands will sit side by side with local brands. Local manufacturers and regional retailers will be housed under one roof.
Everything in one place: Nothing new, but the sheer magnitude of literally everything sounds like a tall order. And it is. We haven’t figured out when or where exactly this “Godzilla of malls” is happening. Watch out for huge development spaces when you can.
