About the mall. What's so great about mall, as in general? I hate indoor malls. I can't stand people bumping me with their shopping bags and looking at me as if I did a wrong thing to them. Weird people hanging out the food court or public bathrooms. Shoppers ooh-and-aahh over the water fountains or hanging decorations. I prefer outdoor street-level shopping like Chicago's Michigan Ave or NY's 5th ave. Does Manila/Quezon City has that similar kind?

yabang naman ng kupal na to, what the hell is wrong with that, if they stroll or roam around like rats, wala lang just making statement

saka coming from a native looking Filipino that speaks so arrogantly and il to other people, is equally annoying to hear, mga pangit na lumelevel sa Amerikano, kaiinis!

Where do you get an idea that I am speaking so arrogantly. Relax. I am saying that I do not like going to any indoor mall at all. Capisce, no? Well, fughetit.

Anyway, back to the topic: It is great to hear Manila to become a home of the world's largest shopping complex.

Massive malls are fine, but I just don't like the idea of having tall malls. The maximum I could take is 1 basement floor, ground floor and 2 upper floors. Anything more than that, is ridiculously high!

The project is cool though

massive malls are ridiculous... i wish the philippines would concentrate more on outdoor shopping areas - they add much more to the streetscape.

Well, the shopping complex is big, but the malls themselves are separate buildings connected by tubes to transport shoppers around while maintaing the streets and roads below for traffic. Yes, the outdoor elements are still there. I know what they have on mind. Its not just a shopping complex my friends, it will have condominiums, offices, movie and Broadway-like theaters, dining complexes, coffee shops and so much more. But talking of useable floor spaces for retail , it is still massive.

Awesome project! I never realized this would be this huge!
I only saw the initial press release and I'm already amazed.
And seeing the new renderings...I'm speechless!

BTW. The weather has something to do with the Pinoy's affinity with indoor shopping.
