The City of Smiles in Negros Occidental, Philippines welcomes the joyous season of Christmas! It’s the opening of a new and bigger Bacolod mall — Ayala Malls Capitol Central. Grand opening is tomorrow, December 14, 2018.
The Boom in Bacolod City
Bacolod City has come a long way to in terms of development. It is becoming one of the fastest growing service and business process outsourcing hubs in the Philippines. Additionally, it has been dubbed as one of the “most business-friendly” and “most livable” in the country.
The portfolio of the city as a leading IT and consumer driven-development hub gets another boost. Real estate developer Ayala Land Inc. opens the latest Ayala Mall at the Capitol Central complex. It is built around the Negros Occidental Provincial Capitol.
Ayala Malls Capitol Central
The Ayala Malls Capitol Central is an expansive Bacolod mall centrally located along Gatuslao Street. It is along the corner of North and South Capitol Roads in Bacolod City. It is easily accessible via private and public transportation.
Jennylle S. Tupaz, Head of Ayala Malls Group, said that Ayala Malls Capitol Central aims to further foster economic expansion in its immediate locale. Moreover, they are here to help the greater Metro Bacolod.
“Situated at Bacolod’s kilometer zero, beside the historic Provincial Capitol Lagoon, Ayala Malls Capitol Central is in a prime location. Additionally, it will be a thriving center for convergence in terms of commerce, business, and leisure.” Tupaz confidently says.
With the Ayala Capitol Central, the people of Bacolod can expect the company’s trademark commitment to sustainable and inclusive economic development.
Mariana Zobel de Ayala, deputy head of Ayala Malls, describes Ayala Malls Capitol Central as the perfect location where every Negrense can gather. They can celebrate small winnings, mark major milestones, and have intimate gatherings. “We are happy to bring Negrenses a holistic experience that is intimate and relaxing amidst the hectic city buzz. With Ayala Malls Capitol Central, we will showcase Bacolod’s Best alongside global brands,” said Zobel de Ayala. “Perhaps, together, we can make amazing experiences happen,” he added.
