Of Setting Roots in the Philippines
In 2021, the pioneering Philippine branch of Mitsukoshi is set to rise in the grandiose Bonifacio Global City (BGC) in Taguig. The flagship store will serve as the first in the country, but the retail chain’s 56th outlet around the world as it also has overseas stores in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Taiwan, China, Italy, and the United States.
The mall will anchor the Japanese-inspired condominium The Seasons Residences, an upscale project of Federal Land, Inc, Nomura Real Estate Development Co., Ltd., and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd.
“As one of Japan’s most prestigious retail operators, Mitsukoshi’s decision to establish its first mall in the Philippines on the podium level of The Seasons Residences will help strengthen the latter’s position as a new landmark destination in the metro,” Federal Land Inc chairman Alfred V. Ty said in a statement.
