The Harbor Merida in the Yucatan
The Harbor Mérida is now open in the Yucatán capital
More than 1.3 million people live in Merida and “The Harbor,” the newest and biggest mall is located in the area with the highest income per capita and the highest level of security. This complex is the largest shopping center in the southeast of Mexico and located within the Via Montejo development. To make the mall a greater experience, The Harbor Merida has an artificial lake of more than eight thousand square meters.
Merida is one of the most important financial centers in the Yucatan Peninsula. It has a great culture, great gastronomy, and national and international art projection. It is also the number one city in terms of security. It has attracted a lot of migration from people who seek the peace that this city gives. This mall is going to provide extra security and more options for shoppers.
The Harbor Merida is one of the five biggest megamalls in Mexico. It was built over a period of two years by property developers Thor Urbana and Inmobilia with an investment of US $72.6 million. Gran Chapur, a Yucatan based department store, is the centerpiece of the new mall. The company invested more than US $14.5 million to secure its place in the exclusive development. It is sure to be the focal point of the mall.
The shopping center features elements that are reminiscent of Yucatan’s famous cenotes (sinkholes), which are popular for swimming. It was designed by Boston based Elkus Manfredi Architects. Among the other stores in the Harbor Merida are fashion chains Forever 21, Under Armour, Kipling and Sunglass Hut. A range of restaurants and cinema chain Cinepolis provide dining and entertainment options. The mall will create 800 direct and 960 indirect jobs.
