GT Mall Pavia

Another mall has opened in the booming town of Pavia, and it houses mostly local brands and businesses! GT TOWN Center Pavia, Iloilo’s homegrown mall located at Ungka 2 started serving the Ilonggos on Thursday, July 19.

“Great Things are going to happen with GT,” exclaimed Mr. Allan Ryan Tan, VP for Real Estate and Land Dev. of GT Town Center, as he welcomed guests and showed them the latest plans in the GT Town development by the International Builders Corporation (IBC).

In attendance during the grand opening include Senator Frank Drilon, Pavia Mayor Mike Gorriceta, Iloilo Governor Art Defensor Sr., Congressman Toto Defensor, Iloilo City Mayor Jose Espinosa III, Vice Mayor Jeffrey Ganzon, Councilor Candice Tupas, ex-councilors Lex Tupas and Perla Zulueta, Profriends Gerry Choa, SM’s Herbert Sy, among others.

Celebrity guests include Giselle Sanchez and Barbie Imperial also graced the opening day, together with Tony Labrusca and Marco Gumabao who entertained shoppers in the afternoon show.

GT Town Center is the first mall venture of the Tan family, headed by construction mogul and patriarch Alfonso ‘Ponso’ Tan of IBC.

With a mission to help and promote local enterprise, around 80% of the mall tenant’s are homegrown brands, something Ilonggos can be truly proud of!

GT Town Center Pavia team really made it sure that most of the tenants are local. It will not compete with foreign brands to assure the public that they will get great finds and treats.


The 2-level mall has everything one needs: a supermarket, a department store, an appliance store, a medical and diagnostic center, fashion and jewelry stores, party needs, printing shops, restaurants and cafes, spa and salons, pharmacies, optical shops, and government services (SSS, LTO, NBI, etc). This makes it easier for shoppers from nearby towns and areas to actually just go and get items from the mall.

Trees around the mall’s vicinity were not uprooted during the construction, in preparation for a park and open spaces which will be accessible to the public. Waste management and waste water treatments will also follow, making GT Town Center environment friendly.
