The modern structure, covering a total area of 77, 756.23 square meters and a gross floor area of 50,483 square meters, is set to be a key player in the growing local economy and rapidly expanding market of Iligan City.
To accommodate tourists and local residents, a 108-room Go Hotel with function rooms is also set to be opened right beside the mall’s modern edifice.
Designed to complement the natural environment of its location, the three-level shopping space consists of cool hues and curvilinear architectural details. The mall’s glass facade brings in natural lighting while the elevated ceilings with a wave-like canopy is reminiscent of the Majestic Waterfalls, a famous natural attraction found in Iligan.
