I was out and about today over in the Bajada area. I passed by at the newly built Abreeza Mall, and its almost done. It says on the sign that it will be open on May 12th 2011. Just by looking at it I’m really impressed. Hearing and reading from the TV and the papers on what’s going to be the stores there really makes me and the rest of the family overly excited. But still we always welcome new stuff here in Davao. I’ve already saw the sign and the parking lot for the Robinson there, and it looks impressive. I’ve already seen signs of some other stores and banks too. Just by looking at it from the road it is really looking good and upscale mall. I like the rounded design of it.
To be perfectly honest, my only main concern now would be the traffic flow on that area when the mall opens. Right now to go from Victoria mall to Damosa Street during evening time, before it would take like 45 minutes or so, wait when the mall opens, it might take like 2 hours or more then. Especially during Sunday, just right across the Abreeza mall is a Catholic Church. During Sunday, its always traffic in that there. Now when that mall opens, it might be a traffic jam in that area then. Hmm… It might be good for me then so that I won’t shop that much there.
I’m too impatient when it comes to traffic jams. Well, who would not be. I think the whole Bajada going to Lanang area will be a busy road pretty soon. SM North is in the process of building now. They already started pouring the concrete and stuff there. I think they are targeting to be open in about 2 years from now. Some areas like the supermarket might be open ahead than others. It will be good from the people of Tagum, Panabo, Samal Island and the Compostela Valley area. They don’t have to cross the Bankerohan bridge then to shop at the other SM.
I don’t think I will be going on that new mall anytime soon. I will wait a few weeks. It’s going to be flooded with lots of people from all around the nearest towns here. Just by looking outside when we’re driving by the new mall all workers were trying to do the finishing touches outside. I don’t know about the inside of it though. Just talked with my kids awhile ago, they are really excited with that new mall open especially with the Toys “R” Us store coming there. They’ve been looking up toys r us website. They already know the store for a long time now. My goodness we have to try to make more money here. 😉
Well, hope to bump some of you there sometime. When its open and you’ve been there, let me know what you think of the mall. Have fun shopping!
