History[edit]

A shot of the first phase of the mall.

It began its operations in the mid-2000s and was developed by the Yeeloofa Development Corporation (YDC)[1] costing somewhere around 250 million pesos.[2] Being developed by the 168 Group of Companies (168 GoC), the 168 Shopping Mall is only one of many buildings being managed and constructed by the group. Within recent years, Phase 2 of the mall was constructed to accommodate the need for extra space due to the overcrowding in the first phase of the mall and the need of space for tenants.

Tenants[edit]
