I got sources which report that if there will be no delay in the processing of papers and other clearances, pile driving for the proposed Ayala Mall and Complex at the Floirendo lot will commence as early as August this year (fingers crossed). Initially, pile driving will be undertaken all over the lot as the proposed development will cover the entire property covering nearly four hectares.
Based on the info, the mall will have three storeys with basement parking or a total of four. Accordingly, the entire basement (approx. 3.8 hectares) will be used for parking. Earthfilling will also be undeetaken. Part of the development will include a multi-storey hotel (8-10 floors) and a group of mid-rise office buildings (5-6 storeys). Still, more discussion will be made as to the final plans prior to approval.
This is one project worth the wait!
