DAVAO CITY — A subsidiary of Villar-led Vista Land and Lifescapes, Inc. is adding a shopping mall within a planned 15-hectare residential subdivision in the southern area.
The 2.6-hectare Vista Mall project of Vista Land’s Camella Communities Davao, Inc. was recently approved on second reading by the Davao City Council following the recommendation of the subcommittee on housing, rural and urban development for high-end projects.
Documents from the council show the company has completed the requirements for preliminary approval and locational clearance as well as the development permits for the project.
The Mines and Geosciences Bureau, on the other hand, has issued a “certification for possible geohazard and recommended mitigating measures.”
The three-storey Vista Mall will be located inside the Cerritos subdivision in the Tugbok District.
In an earlier interview with BusinessWorld, Camella Communities Manager Marlon Nino B. Escalicas said the company is expanding its footprint in the city not just in the residential segment but also through commercial developments. — Carmelito Q. Francisco
