Shopping Mall
“Greenbelt Mall is only a 6 minute drive from the property. Greenbelt Mall, a complex of five contemporary buildings. What is truly unique about this mall is that each section (Greenbelt 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5) has its own style of architecture and features. Greenbelt 1 still has its own quaint little retail shops but is more concentrated on electronics and home appliances. Greenbelt 2 is comprised of fine dining restaurants. Greenbelt 3 has high- end retail shops on the ground floor, and coffee shops that have become the favorite hangout place for many coffee lovers. Exclusive retail stores include: Hermes, Calvin Klein, Kate Spade, Marks and Spencer, Kenneth Cole, Lacoste and more. The second floor has restaurant, bookshops and more. There are connecting walkways from Greenbelt 3 and 4 to Landmark and Glorietta. The cinemas are located in Greenbelt 3. Greenbelt 4 is small compared to Greenbelt 3. The space accommodate the shops of Louie Vuitton, Salvatore Ferregamo, Jimmy Choo, Balenciaga, Prada, Bulgari, Charriol, Gucci and other higher-end shops. Greenbelt 5’s main feature are the shops of top-caliber Filipino designers though there are also imported high end shops like Patek Philippe, Rolex, Panerai, Zara, Yves Saint Laurent, Banana Republic, Liz Clairborne, Paul Smith, Balenciaga and more. There are restaurants of all kinds and types at Greenbelt 2, 3,and 5. For fast food dining, Greenbelt 1 is the place to be. The Greenbelt Mall has a hodgepodge of clienteles. Though middle income can easily afford fine dining and some branded items at the mall, only the rich and moneyed can afford to buy the upper scale store merchandise, like $1000 handbags, without batting an eyelash. Hours: The mall is open every day. Shops open at 10:00 A.M. and close at 10:00 P.M. Coffee shops at the courtyard are open most days 24/7. Parking is not a problem.”
