The Araneta Group’s Gateway Square complex is set for an upgrade with the launch of Gateway Mall 2, the much-awaited expansion of the multi-awarded Gateway Mall, in December 2022.
This P5-billion development covers 190,000 square meters with over eight levels of additional choices for shopping, dining, entertainment, and leisure in Araneta City.
“Gateway Mall 2 promises to be like no other mall in the world. This is the latest in our ongoing efforts to keep providing more memorable firsts in the City of Firsts,” Lorna Fabian, VP for Leasing of the Araneta Group, said.
Breadth & Depth
Araneta City’s new mall enhances the City of First’s breadth and depth of choices in fashion & accessories, recreation & entertainment, health & wellness, and gadgets & gaming from local and international brands in over 500 outlets. It also expands the choices for quick bites, family fare, traditional comfort food, concept restaurants, regional cuisine, and bars and lounges to over 100 dining options.
Other mall features include a 1000-seat iconic church on the roof deck, sensory and culinary gardens, a 3,700 square-meter supermarket, and a 700 square-meter Atrium for various activities and events – all in one establishment that interconnects the MRT and LRT stations and straddles the Big Dome, Gateway offices, the Novotel and ibis Styles hotels, Gateway shopping, and parking facilities.
Also, once Gateway Mall 2 opens, the public can access the historic Smart Araneta Coliseum through doorways located inside the new establishment. This makes Gateway Mall 2 the only mall in the country that is directly connected to an indoor arena.
Revitalized Gateway Square
With this new development, Araneta City’s Gateway Square is expected to provide more opportunities for a break from the routine. The superblock will have a total of 18 cinemas with VIP lounges, over 3,000 parking spaces, and convenient link to attractions such as the air-conditioned indoor floating garden The Oasis, the open-air Topiary Park, and the arts sanctuary Gateway Gallery.
“These new properties revitalize the integrated Gateway Square – a development that offers opportunities for an experience you can personalize yourself in a thoroughly modern and contemporary environment,” Fabian said.
