    The Gardens

    The Gardens is a very recent entry into the increasingly upmarket development mix. It comprises the second half of Mid-Valley City, sharing an urban island with the Mid-Valley Mega Mall (http://archinect.com/blog/article/63563539/mid-valley-mega-mall). The two mega-malls are connected with an extensive below-grade promenade-cum-food court. A photo diagram is included that describes their physical relationship.

    The Gardens encompasses a residential condominium tower, a hotel tower, and two office towers all resting on top of a pedestal comprised of retail space and parking.  The Gardens mall contains three stories of retail above grade, two stories of private-use space above that, one partial story of below grade retail, and four stories of parking underneath it all. The curved pedestal is over 950 feet long along its arc.
