THE NCCC Group of Companies is partnering with DMCI Homes for the construction of a new shopping mall with a condominium at the site of its Ma-a property that was razed by fire last December, killing 39 people. “After the demolition, that is the time when we start considering building again and start complying (with) new permit, new requirements, but we are eager to start building once we are allowed to start building again with condominiums,” Lafayette A. Lim, chief executive officer of the NCCC Group, said in an interview during the opening of its 9th mall in the Buhangin area of Davao City over the weekend. “Ma-a development is solely for a mall. But a tower will be developed at the back by DMCI Homes. We already forged a partnership with DMCI before the start of the NCCC Mall Buhangin. This tower will be as high as the city allows,” Mr. Lim said. NCCC is also currently constructing a retail hub with a supermarket along McArthur Highway, not far from the Ma-a site, and is targeted to open within the year. “The pop-up store aims to cater to the customers of (the burned) NCCC Supermarket in Ma-a,” Mr. Lim said. — Maya M.
