Residents in Calinan area will no longer have to go to the city for groceries and shopping as homegrown store chain New City Commercial Corporation (NCCC) is targeting to open its supermarket and department store at Vista Mall in Mintalby the second quarter of next year.
Sharlene Faye Lim, LTS Malls Inc. president, said the opening is in partnership with the Villar-owned Vista Land.
“They want to partner with a local player. We are going to open our supermarket and department store second quarter of next year. Sabay ito sa opening ng mall,” Lim said in an interview during their 41st anniversary, Sunday.
The supermarket has a floor area of 3,000 square meters.
Tagged the first full service Vista Mall in Mindanao, it will have three floors and will house six digital cinemas.
Lim also shared that they will be setting up a 40 meter-diameter dome at the parking area of NCCC-Victoria Plaza.
With construction starting last week, the dome is targeted to be completed this month to host various events. It has a seating capacity of 500 to 1,000.
“The dome is a semi-permanent structure. Once the development in Victoria Plaza commences, basically we will move it somewhere else where we can use it. The dome’s gonna happen,” Lim said.
NCCC formally took over Victoria Plaza in March this year after it sealed the acquisition on March 12.
The 9.6-hectare property will be a mixed-use development with eight high-rise condominiums, serviced apartments, retail strips, lush green space, and a five-star hotel.
Lim said presently they are doing electrical rewiring and aircon installations.
“We started from scratch and we condemned the old wiring. Everything will be condemned,” she said.
Lim added that they are eyeing to groundbreak developments in Ma-a next year where its fire-razed mall once stood.
