The ‘Next Big Thing’ to pump prime retail scene in Pampanga

EXHILARATING with its diverse offerings and serene setting, The Shoppes at The Infinity is set to be the next shopping Mecca of Central Luzon, while bolstering Pampanga’s booming business and tourism sectors.

Real-estate firm AC Beautiful Island Realty Development Corp. (ACBI) is positive to realize this goal as it unveils the retail and commercial hub for its pilot township project in the province, which consumers and foodies look forward to as their new go-to leisure destination in the region once it becomes fully operational by the second quarter of 2019.

“The Shoppes, a sprawling retail strip within the upcoming vibrant, fully integrated city will offer 15,600 square meters of palatable delights, local and global boutique brands and service establishments, making it not only a shopper’s paradise but a top-of-mind recreation experience,” said Byron John T. Siy, general manager of ACBI.

He added that it is envisioned to complement the trade and investment potential of The Infinity—the company’s 40-hectare mixed-use development that will soon house trade, commercial, residential and all other dynamic features that completes a community.

“As business and leisure are industries that now work side by side, we want to make sure that we are offering a complete and one-stop-shop destination on par with central business districts here and abroad,” Siy noted.

The property developer ties up with leading style firm LG+V Architects to give The Shoppes a modern contemporary design.

Its sprawling verdant landscape will highlight a relaxed and nature-inspired atmosphere while meeting the shopping and dining needs of the region.

This retail-cum-recreation zone will commence construction as soon as mid-2018, just in time for the target opening of its initial phase by next year.

Already creating a buzz early on, however, The Shoppes is highly anticipated to fire up the transformation of the area.

Being the real-estate arm of Jenra Group of Cos., ACBI conceptualized The Infinity as a commerce district not only to open prospects for Pampanga, but to serve as a commerce link of the region to the rest of Luzon, thanks to its strategic location at the gateway of Central Luzon and its direct connection to the North Luzon Expressway via the Angeles Exit.

Master planned by Palafox Associates, the newest urban complex traverses the cities of Angeles and Mabalacat.

Its utilities are carefully tucked underground, thus, making the road networks functional and aesthetically appealing.

What’s more, it boasts of sustainable features as the property company adheres to the green building code.

Offering freehold ownership and long-term lease investment options, The Infinity, indeed, provides endless opportunities for growth.
