Mogan Mall Shopping Center in Puerto Rico is currently under construction on the old Puerto Rico waterpark site on Avenida Tómas Roca Bosch next to Puerto Rico Shopping Center and below Servatur Terrazamar. There is also ongoing construction work opposite this site on a separate shopping center called The Market.
Mogan Mall Puerto Rico is an open air style shopping center project which will span 44.000m2 with 144 locals for shops bars and restaurants. Architect José M Aguirre Vila-Coro who has previously worked on El Tablero Shopping Center has designed a volcanic rock style facade with gardens set naturally into Puerto Rico valley while respecting the barranco that flows through the area when we have heavy rain.
This 26 million euro investment that is set to turn this old waterpark land into a new center is headed by El Tablero Shopping Center owner and entreprenuer Amid Achi and Javier Puga. Taking this into consideration it won’t be much of a surprise if the centers end up looking very similar with regards to specific shops, businesses and style.
Mogan Mall Shops
Most shopping centers have a large supermarket and seeing as one of Mogan Mall’s investors Javier Puga is also the CEO of Hiperdino, we could see a large Hiperdino supermarket in the new center which will be great competition with Mercadona in Motor Grande. Perfume and jewellery store Funde Grube is also set to open a store in Mogan Mall as are clothing shops Zara, Pull and Bear, Stradivarius and Bershka. In the architecture designs shops like Adidas and the Apple Store have been drawn in too which will be interesting to see in Puerto Rico.
Mogan Mall Restaurants and Bars
With respect to restaurants we’ve heard a few rumours but nothing concrete about McDonalds Puerto Rico possibly moving to the new center. This could be a good opening for companies like Dunkin’ Coffee, Starbucks or Costa Coffee to jump on board with the new opening.
If there are going to be strong similarities between Mogan Mall and El Tablero Center then we could even see 100 Montaditos or even Burger King. The important thing is a place to get good local coffee and a supermarket as they are usually the two constants in a shopping zone that keep people coming back.
