Veranza Mall’s stores unveiled June 29th

Posted on by in , , ,

I finally got an invitation to the opening and blessing of Veranza Mall, KCC Property Holdings, Inc. a much-vaunted GREEN MALL, the first of its kind in Southern Mindanao, according to their press release.

From what I gathered, Veranza Mall is set to be open to the public at 11:00 AM on Saturday, June 29, 2013, immediately after a mass by no less than Bishop Dinualdo Gutierrez, DD and a ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier that morning to be attended by the city’s VIP’s, KCC’s suppliers, clients and tenants, among other guests.

Check out its invitation card below which also includes the information that Jed Madela and Juris will perform during the opening program.

As a Green Mall, Veranza has a transparent roofing that allows outside light to come in and thus saving much on electricity costs.  It also boasts of a structure that is very much inspired by nature.  A variety of more than 800 plants and trees will populate the mall’s three floors, including its ROOF GARDEN which will surely augur well for the environment.

It also has two outdoor wall waterfalls which will be the first of its kind in Mindanao.

The mall also has a wider Atrium which is ideal for indoor concerts, shows, events.

Veranza’s Activity Area or Atrium right across the KCC Mall.  This is where the blessing ceremonies will take place on Saturday, June 29, 2013.

Veranza also has an AL FRESCO dining area, which seems to be the vogue in GenSan and will house the country’s topnotch local brands in dining and entertainment.

And guess what!  Veranza Mall has its own Parking Building!

WoW!  With all these under one roof, Veranza has really one-upped SM City GenSan with its bigger number of food establishments and apparel shops, including the existing brands at its own KCC Mall.  I am pretty certain though that the multinational mall giant would not take this sitting down and would be more aggressive in its moves now, especially in scouting for more tenants to populate its own mall and in coming up with the right tenant mix for GenSan.

That would surely make things more exciting in the Tuna Capital.

Congratulations Veranza Mall!  With your opening, GenSan has just rightfully earned its new monicker as the SHOPPING MECCA of South Central Mindanao.

  4. White Knight

    @Arnold. Parang Veranza Mall yata ang nauna, kung meron man sa ibang mall, itoy hindi kasing laki at elegant ang dating compared sa Veranza. Truly, its Gensan’s pride.
