Century City Mall, the landmark retail and leisure complex being developed by Century Properties Group Inc in Makati City, the Philippines, is set to open in Q4 2013, the developer has announced. The complex is designed by global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan, with the practice’s Singapore-based team providing an integrated package of services to the client, including architecture, interior, landscape and wayfinding design expertise.
The scheme includes a strong mix of retail (from supermarket to lifestyle and fashion brands), cinema space and an iconic roof-top garden and bar, and will sit at the heart of the wider Century City development, which includes high-specification office and residential space.
Practice Director Ian Simpson said: “Century City Mall is an iconic project which is set to transform Makati City and the announcement of the completion date is testament to strong progress on the scheme. Through its distinctive approach to client partnering, our integrated team of world-class design experts is playing a key role on the project, with the quality and finishes sure to set the scheme apart.”
“Century City Mall will exemplify the best in modern retail design and architecture,” said Century Properties Co-COO, Marco Antonio. “It will be the most exciting retail development in Makati City after many years. Our team of designers has gone through great lengths to create a place that is truly special. It will offer a wholly distinct retail, leisure and dining experience, from its design and store mix to its lifestyle concepts.”
The Broadway Malyan-conceived roof garden is the central design feature for the scheme. Intended to create an open space which offers a complementary rooftop area to the green paths that thread through the development, the roof garden will accommodate stylish al fresco dining and a bar. It continues the overall emphasis on quality, experience and liveability which is core to the Century City design approach.
The practice’s Singapore team has also designed the Trump Tower Manila, which is currently rising out of the ground in Makati City. The tower is set to be the tallest residential skyscraper in the Philippines and Manila’s definitive landmark when completed in 2016. The team is actively growing its operations in the Philippines, as well as in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, where the fundamentals of the markets remain strong.
Distinguished by its global reach with 16 offices across world centres, unrivalled diversity with over 500 sector experts and distinctive client focus with over 85% income from repeat business, Broadway Malyan creates world-class and fully-integrated cities, places and buildings to unlock lasting value and deliver a ‘return on design’.
