CentRio – basically means Cent (center/heart of the city referring to its location) and Rio (spanish for River). A beautiful soon to open huge building with everything on it right at the heart of Cagayan de Oro City the melting pot of Northern Mindanao. Aside from the most talked about Ayala Mall, the Centrio also will have a hotel and condominiums, the first of its kind in Cagayan de Oro. The bloggers of Northern Mindanao (Iligan, Bukidnon and Cagayan de Oro) is thankful for the opportunity to have a first glimpse of what’s inside before the mall formally opens to the public on November 9, 2012. A big shoutout to the marketing team and staff of Centrio Ayala for granting the group’s request to check out the place. Here’s what’s inside so far.
The Entrance fronting Gaisano Mall
The Activity Center
The first 3 floors of the building comprises the Ayala Mall
200-seat 2D Cinemas (3 cinemas) and a 300-seat 3D Cinema to serve CDO’s movie goers
The developer purposely left this tree unharmed. Restaurants and coffee shops will surround this area called the Centrio Garden. A perfect place to just relax and have fun with friends and loved ones while enjoying a meal
The ground floor will consist of the high end retail shops, food chains, bookstore and the Rustan’s Fresh Supermarket, the very first in Mindanao. Second floor will have the family and kids zone, activities shop and the Robinsons Department Store while third floor will be for the movie goers, IT & wellness fans.
So now you know where to go, which floor will you be a frequent visitor and where to bring your kids. At least 80% of the establishments will open on November 9, 2012 (Friday). Celebrities will also come to grace the mall’s opening on Nov. 9 and 10. If you are a fan of Anne Curtis, you better be at the mall on the 10th!
