Tiendesitas, the New Shopping Haven in Pasig



Tiendesitas reopens in time for holiday shopping
Twice as big with twice as many lifestyle retailers
Manila, Philippines—Ortigas & Co.’s well-loved shopping and family entertainment destination, Tiendesitas reopens its first building this November to offer twice as much space and twice as many dining, retail, and lifestyle picks in time for the holidays.
The undisputed haven for unique Filipino finds has been drawing local and foreign shoppers since 2005, with its 30,000 square meter space dedicated to seven retail categories or “villages” and its unique brand of week-night and weekend entertainment.
“We see the upcoming holidays as an opportune time to reopen and to provide amenities such as wider aisles, elevators, escalators, and additional parking slots. Our shoppers will also be glad to know that we have made the retail area fully air-conditioned. To our shoppers, entering the brand new building promises a more exciting and leisurely shopping experience,” says Cathy Casares-Ko, General Manager of the Shopping Center Division, Ortigas & Co.
The village remodeled
The spanking new Fashion Village, which is the first of three to rise between 2013 to 2016, now stands two floors high, with 12,300 square meters of retail space, 113 additional basement parking slots, and 250 new tenants.
Upon completion of the next two buildings, Tiendesitas would have a total of 35,000 square meters of retail space divided into nine retail categories: food, pet, entertainment, general merchandise, handicrafts, fashion, antiques, novelties, and the people’s village.
In spite of the modern amenities, Tiendesitas maintains its distinct charm through a novel execution of Maranao architectural elements as seen in its pavilion, and matching it with an indoor-outdoor feel through high ceilings and the provision of balconies.
Excitement in every find
“The new tenants that have joined us recently do not disappoint in terms of delivering one of a kind products,” adds Ko.
From an assortment of collectibles at Ram Eisley, quirky items and furniture at The Stockroom, apparel at H&B, Link, and Blusa, up to wellness and cosmetic products at GiGA and Props Tools and Cosmetics, new stores have added zest to an already flavorful mix of old-timers, who have made Tiendesitas the stunning retail stop that it is now.
Tiendesitas is the anchor of the 18.5-hectare interim development Frontera Verde, which also houses SM Hypermarket, Fun Ranch, Ark Avilon, Transcom Center, a Shell Gas Station, and a planned 6-building Knowledge Process Outsourcing Campus Development, Silver City.
Frontera Verde is owned and managed by premier property developer Ortigas & Co.—the same company behind Circulo Verde, Capitol Commons, Greenhills Shopping Center and the Greenhills Subdivisions, Greenmeadows, and Valle Verde.
