Roberto Santiago Builds Huge Megamall

Roberto Santiago has made quite a name for himself in Brazil. He has been able to build his wealth by focusing on commercial real estate. He has had a large amount of success in Brazil, and he has been able to do this for decades. It feels good for shoppers to shop in the creation that Roberto Santiago help developed. The Manaira Mall has been able to grow in an amazing way, and much of this has to do with the great amount of interest that consumers have had in this shopping environment.

 

It makes sense to connect with a Mega Mall like this because it provides people with a lot of options that are not often found in a mall environment. Roberto Santiago really did a lot of brainstorming when he decided to venture into commercial real estate. He could have gained some profit from providing people with a shopping area that had things like a food court and clothing stores, but this was something that had already been done before. This would not become anything for people to talk and write about. It would have just been another mall in Brazil.

 

Roberto Santiago did not want to get into real estate just to be compared to everyone else. He wanted to reach higher ground and build a much better platform for people that wanted to hang out in Brazil. This is why he created the Manaira Mall. He wanted people to be able to get access to a whole new environment where they could shop at any time and indulge in delectable menu items from the food court. He also wanted to give people access to an environment where they could go bowling or hang out with friends.

 

There definitely are many options for people that would like to do this, and it appears that Roberto Santiago has been making improvements to the mall that he has brought to Brazil since it was formed. A concert hall has been added to this mall since the inception in 1989, and this shows that Roberto Santiago is still forward-thinking when it comes to expanding and making improvements in Manaira Mall.

 

It appears that Roberto Santiago is even on a greater path to building more real estate. Over the years he has proven himself to be a leader that is interested in bringing commercial real estate like the mega mall concept to other areas in Latin America outside of Brazil. He knew that it was a successful venture in Brazil, and he made a lot of room to make more commercial real estate ventures like this where he could give people in other areas in Latin America the same Manaira Mall experience.
