Boasting over 40,000 sqm of retail space, Solenad brings together the best mix of local and global fashion brands, a variety of cafes and dining options where one can dine al fresco, and world class entertainment options all under one roof.
Ayala Malls Solenad bears the same signature of excellence Ayala Mall developments are known for. It distinguishes itself by building on the uniqueness of its location and vibrancy of its community. Nestled in the thriving district of Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Ayala Malls Solenad provides more than just retail spaces for boutiques and restaurants, it is one of the first malls to embrace the outdoor active lifestyle, and reflects this through generous walkways, naturally-ventilated spaces, bike lanes and pocket gardens. It has a two-hectare Activity Park that offers a cool, relaxing shade where families, working professionals and students can revel in the mall’s beautiful and lush landscaping.
The Activity Park has an 800sqm atrium that can be transformed into an entertainment and events venue for concerts, concept fairs and exhibits, product launches and more. The smaller gardens will cater to more intimate shows, children’s or pocket activities. It also houses an outdoor playground which features spring riders, a slide, and unique luminescent (glow-in-the-dark) swings all placed on an attractive colorful rubber flooring.
During the launch of Ayala Malls Solenad last August 6, Ayala Land Inc. President and CEO Bobby Dy shared, “When we were planning this new mall, we really wanted something different from what you would find in the retail offerings in Sta. Rosa. True enough, we’ve differentiated ourselves. This is going to be a highly pedestrian–friendly mall, with a lot of open spaces and shopping and dining options. The mix of offerings is also going to be unique and different. We will feature a Fiesta Market and a Hawker’s Market, aside from main global brands that will be part of the mix.” Dy also shared that this new development will boost business and uplift the lives of those living within the area as it will generate at least 1,000 new jobs.
Hon. Arlene Arcillas, the mayor of Sta. Rosa, shared her own words of appreciation at the ceremonial opening, saying “Nuvali is considered as one of the top 5 destinations in the Philippines now, and I’m very proud and grateful that Ayala Land has supported us in developing Sta. Rosa into a world-class and vibrant district. I thank Ayala Land for believing in the city of Sta. Rosa. This is the future of Sta. Rosa.”
Aside from the staple of retail stores, restaurants and services, Ayala Malls Solenad will also have a department store, cinemas and a Fiesta Market that will house a hawker’s market inspired food court and a fresh market venue for fruits, flowers and vegetables.
