Ali Mall is the very first major shopping mall in the Philippines. It is located at Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City near SM Cubao. The mall was named after World Champion Boxer, Muhammad Ali. The mall was built in 1976, making it one of the oldest malls in the country.[1] Recently, they relaunched the new Cinemas and Food Court.

History

Construction on the mall began in 1975 after Muhammad Ali's boxing victory against Joe Frazier in Araneta Coliseum, dubbed "Thrilla in Manila".[1] At the time there were no malls in the entire country, so Ali addressed a speech to the Philippines to build a shopping mall near the Big Dome in honor of his victory, a shopping mall with a floor area of 62,000 sq.m.[2] In the 1980s, the mall has been undergoing expansions and renovations since its construction. In 2009, an expansion to Ali Mall was opened.
