Property developer Megaworld is building a full-scale lifestyle mall in San Fernando, Pampanga, slated for completion by 2022.
Estimated to cost P1.8 billion, the three-level Capital Mall will rise on the former site of the historic sugar central of Pampanga Sugar Development Co., which Megaworld is developing into a township. It will be the company’s first full-scale mall in Central Luzon.
The mall with a gross floor area of around 33,000 square meters will start construction by the first half of 2020. It will house four state-of-the-art cinemas, a food hall and a shophouse strip.
“We are curating a new and unique design concept for this mall. As a tribute to the legacy of Pampanga’s oldest sugar mill, we will build the Capital Mall with its rich cultural heritage in mind. Other recovered portions of the sugar mill such as the giant bull gears, sprockets, and mechanical parts will become part of the mall’s interiors,” said Kevin L. Tan, chief strategy officer of Megaworld.
The Capital Mall will have a landscaped garden enclave of restaurants and cafes surrounded by water ponds and century-old trees.
Megaworld currently has 17 commercial and mall properties in its portfolio.
