May 8, UP Town Center
Ayala Malls redefines community living and mall culture through its newest development in the bustling northern metro – U.P. Town Center, the premier student hub located along Katipunan Avenue.
I went there last Thursday with my blog friends, pre-Katy Perry.
U.P. Town Center, which sits within convenient distance of universities, residential areas, dormitories, and churches, encourages the holistic growth of a vibrant student community. With the selection of new dining concepts and retail stores, it is a haven for students who want to unwind after a stressful day at the campus. Within the two years of its existence, it has been supporting the academic community by hosting local concerts, trivia nights, comedy shows and performances of homegrown talents of the universities.
More for you
This May, UPTC unveils more exciting retail boutiques, casual dining outlets, a department store, and supermarket on an expansive 26,000 sqm-shopping floor plan, as part of its second phase of development. This is in addition to the already existing retail and restaurants that you have learned to love.
At the new wing, shopping for your new, first-day-of-school outfit is made more convenient, as U.P. Town Center brings together, your most favorite fashion brands, such as Bench, Penshoppe, Bratpack, Birkenstock, Rookie USA, Artwork, Bambu, Claire’s, Tickles, Shoe Salon, Flying Dutchman, Just G., Bucket Feet, and Coalitions.

To dine for
Last year, with the completion of the first phase of development, U.P. Town Center introduced a fresh take on dining concepts with relaxing indoor and outdoor settings, perfect for org meetings, group studies and even hanging out.
This year, U.P. Town Center offers more new concepts and students affordable dining options with the opening of Pepper Lunch, Recovery Food, Jamba Juice, Sbarro, Rita’s and Wing Stop. Crisostomo, Wangfu Chinese Bistro, Ramen Nagi, and The Clean Plate are also there to satiate your appetite for local flavours and asian fusion.
Hub for study, entertainment and recreation
This summer, U.P. Town Center provides the student community with more reasons to enjoy the school break with a fair, fashion show, and dj music fest for them to turn up to.
Upon completion in 2016, U.P. Town Center will boast of world-class cinemas, an activity area where performers from the academe can showcase their talents and hold special events, serene green landscapes and relaxing water features that embrace the natural beauty of its surroundings, office spaces, and open grounds for student recreation.
As a dynamic setting where students, and residents in the community can converge, U.P. Town Center blends the academe into the retail front, meeting the holistic needs of the community as well as allowing its culture to flourish.
