Megawide and Araneta Group executives gathered last 31 July 2018 to celebrate the groundbreaking and capsule laying ceremony of Gateway Mall 2 in Cubao, Quezon City. Among those who took part in the celebration were the Bb. Pilipinas winners of 2018.
The project, which is an expansion of the existing Gateway Mall, is set to enhance the community spirit within Araneta Center with its seven floors covering a gross area of 120,000 sq. m.
According to Megawide EVP and Construction Group Head Ronald Paulo, Megawide will be using the precast methodology for the development “to optimize the use of precast elements owing to the large scale of the project.” This will offset expected delays caused by weather, and at the same time improve the overall quality of the structure.
The precast elements will be manufactured in the Megawide Precast Plant in Taytay to ensure strict quality control of the precast products.
Gateway Mall 2 is the second time Megawide and Araneta Group work in partnership, with Cyberpark Towers 1 and 2, office buildings in Araneta Center, Cubao, as their first collaboration.
