Goodbye, Greenbelt 1: Demolition Scheduled on April 1

In a significant development for Makati City's landscape, the iconic Greenbelt 1 mall is set to undergo demolition in April to make way for an extensive redevelopment project. The announcement was made by Ayala Malls vice president AC Legarda, signaling the end of an era for one of the city's most recognizable landmarks.

Designed by the renowned national artist for architecture, Leandro Locsin, Greenbelt 1 has been a fixture in Makati since its inception in the 1970s. However, in line with Ayala's vision for urban renewal and modernization, the decision to demolish and rebuild the mall was made.


According to Legarda, the closure of Greenbelt 1 is scheduled for April, with the redevelopment expected to take several years. The new and improved Greenbelt 1 is slated to reopen its doors to the public by 2028. Despite the demolition, Legarda reassured the public that the redevelopment would incorporate elements of the original Greenbelt 1, paying homage to its rich history and architectural significance.

"Greenbelt 1 was co-developed with national artist Locsin… We will integrate aspects of old Greenbelt 1," Legarda stated, emphasizing Ayala's commitment to preserving the heritage of the iconic structure while ushering in modern amenities and designs.

The redevelopment of Greenbelt 1 is part of Ayala's broader strategy to revitalize its flagship malls across the country. Alongside Greenbelt 1, other Ayala properties, including Glorietta, Trinoma, and Ayala Center Cebu, are also set to undergo renovation and modernization in the coming years.

As the city bids farewell to Greenbelt 1 in its current form, anticipation builds for the unveiling of its future incarnation—a testament to Makati's ever-evolving urban landscape and Ayala's dedication to innovation and progress in the retail sector.
