Harbor Point Mall Subic: A New Mall in Subic soon by Ayala

Just recently, I got a chance to visit the new and upcoming mall developed by Ayala Land in Subic Bay Freeport Zone -- Harbor Point Subic. Construction was still ongoing when I visited and they said that construction is on for 24 hours a day! The skeleton structure is already up but it will take months before the mall will be finished. According to them, target opening date is on April 2012.

The perspective design as seen above somewhat reminds me of outlet shopping malls in the US like those of Barstow and similar outlet malls in the US. I hope that Ayala will gather and place the outlet shops scattered inside Subic and put them inside this mall. Problem is, rent would probably kill the tenants. They should work something out of this nice project.

Here's a sneak peak of the development:
Grocery will be operated by Puregold
Soon-to-be row of restaurants
Frontage
Rear part. Row of restaurants and some leisure related establishments
This will be a leisure + dining mall. As per checking, SM is also building a mall near the area. The next Ayala mall closest to Harbor Point is Marquee mall in Pampanga, which is 30 to 45 minutes away via SCTEX.

To go here, from Subic-TIPO expressway, turn right to Rizal Highway. Go straight until you reach Subic International Hotel. This new Ayala mall development will be right in front of the hotel, near the Subic Bay Yacht club. It's a few blocks away from Times Square Cinemas, a local cinema place in Subic. I guess it'll kill that small town cinema because this mall will have 3 to 4 cinemas.


We've already heard some of the future tenants to be placed in Subic's newest mall -- some highend and some midrange and since I'm not sure if I can disclose, I just won't. Of course, expect Starbucks to be there. Care to place a guess on what other tenants will be leasing on that mall?

Some photos of the Harbor Point Mall in Subic (As per my latest August 2012 visit) here.
