Fora Mall is a Filinvest Lifemall, which also includes Festival Mall in Alabang.
“A Lifemall is not just another fancy name for a chain of shopping center establishments from Filinvest. A Lifemall is more than just a retail center. It is designed to be the center of life and activity wherever it is located. A Lifemall brings life to the city and it enhances the recreational lifestyles of the people who live and work nearby. A Lifemall will be seen as a place where people’s needs and passions find an ideal balance,’’ defines says Joy Polloso, Filinvest senior vice president for commercial centers and retail management.
Fora Mall aims to change the landscape of retail in Tagaytay City with world-class shops and amenities fit for the city’s growing number of discerning clientele.
