Abreeza Davao

Abreeza Mall Davao


The much anticipated opening of Abreeza Mall is scheduled next year. Abreeza is a mixed-use development project of Ayala Land Incorporated and Anflo Management and Investment Corp. It will feature a shopping mall, hotel, residential and commercial lots and office space dedicated to Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) investments. The target opening date is on the first half of 2011.

The mall is located in a sprawling 10-hectare lot along JP Laurel Avenue in Bajada. As of February this year, the mall is almost leased out and set to accommodate more than 300 merchants when completed. This project is considered as one of the biggest single investments that pour in the city Davao.

The term Abreeza was derived from the Italian word “abbraccio” which mean embrace and English word “breeze”.

Last February 18, 2010 was the pre-launching of the mall for its future merchants. The event was attended by Anflocor Group, Robinsons Retail Group, Starbucks executives and many others.

The mall will feature first time comers. Among the possible shops that will first open their branch in Davao through Abreeza Mall are Bread Talk, TGIF for food, XOXO, Café Laguna, New York 101, Lucerne, Lemon Grass and Starbucks. The mall will also feature shops that will showcase the best in Davao.

The first phase of the mall project is expected to be completed in the second quarter of next year with 35,000 square meters gross leasable area (GLA), while the second phase is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2011 with a gross leasable area (GLA) of 26,000 square meters.

In the same development, Gokongwei-owned Robinsons will infuse an investment worth Php 800 million to open a separate four-storey commercial building inside the 10-hectare property.

This development project is foreseen to boost economic growth of the Davao City and neighboring areas. The Abreeza project is certainly something to look forward to. Right now, construction works are in full swing to meet the target opening date.

    After moving to Davao City a few years ago, I missed American products but now it is clear that everything American will soon be here in the Philippines. Every time my wife and I go to the supermarket we see another product from America. The problem we are having is because I am from America I am use to assuming American products and companies would have the same products here in the Philippines as in the US. The reality is not so. McDonalds is not one of my favorite fast food joints here or in America but still (in America) McDonalds taste better than here. The bread is better, the meat is better, the service is bet… I may be going too far now.
    I have run into the same problem with other brand name products in grocery stores as well. Packaging looks the same but doesn’t taste the same. When you read the fine print you can see it really comes from Indonesia or China.

    I was a little disappointed after visiting Starbucks yesterday afternoon. I was really hopeful when I saw a bagel (which I haven’t seen anywhere here in the Philippines as of yet) only to find out it was only wheat bread. Then I saw an apple fritter. Oh joy! At least until it turned out to be old and they heated both bagel and fritter without asking me. Apple fritters get hard when you heat them. Often times these products look like the real thing only to be made out of traditional Philippine style.

    The real reason for going to a coffee shop is the coffee. Wouldn’t you know it? Taste nothing like Starbucks in the US. Probably due to preparation but non the less I was all around disappointed after spending about $8 (about P400).

    I am happy to see at least the ideal of American products but hopefully one day it will be the real thing.

    I must add. I am still excited to see a world class mall in Davao City, especially one that doesn’t turn the music up so loud you can’t hear the person next to you talking.

    It is indeed a beautiful mall. Too bad the outside view isn’t as beautiful.

    @NeatGifts
    Are you aware also of Importation Law? The reason why you see China/Malaysian made products is because of that importation law… you cannot directly import products from the states without duty or large amount of taxes that is under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade or (GATT).

    Abreeza Mall is Big. The outside look is not pretty but the inside look is nice. Many new stores to shop specially clothes and gadgets but the downside were the Supermarket/Grocery store (lack of stocks, the space is way too small, products were not categorized well), no Mattresses in the Department store. overall rate 6/10.

    Davao ranks 3rd in the Philippines. Cebu at 2nd and Manila is 1st.
