In a momentous occasion, key figures gathered at the contract signing and ocular inspection of The Elephant House, famously known as the birthplace of Harry Potter. This iconic establishment is set to open its first branch outside of Scotland, and the chosen location is the new wing of Greenhills Mall in San Juan City.

Among those present during the event were esteemed personalities who played vital roles in making this expansion possible. President and CEO of Visum Ventures, John Michael Hilton, led the team, accompanied by Andrew McRae, the owner and Museum Context Retail Project Principal for The Elephant House Greenhills. Additionally, David Taylor, the owner and The Elephant House Cafe Project Principal of The Elephant House Greenhills, along with Jose Emmanuel 'Junie' Jalandoni, the President and CEO of Ortigas Land, were present to witness this significant milestone. Arch. Renee Bacani and officials from Greenhills Mall also joined the event, demonstrating their support and enthusiasm for the project.

The arrival of The Elephant House in Greenhills Mall marks a thrilling chapter for Harry Potter enthusiasts in the Philippines. Fans will soon have the opportunity to experience the enchantment and nostalgia of the wizarding world right in their own city. The Elephant House Greenhills aims to replicate the magical ambiance and charm of its original counterpart in Edinburgh, Scotland, where J.K. Rowling penned parts of the beloved Harry Potter series. Visitors can expect a delightful atmosphere that pays homage to the literary masterpiece, allowing them to step into the world of Hogwarts and its enchanting characters.


The contract signing and ocular inspection also provided an opportunity for the Greenhills Mall management to showcase the new wing, which is set to open its doors in September. Participants were taken on a comprehensive tour of the different floors, giving them a glimpse of the exciting additions and amenities that await mall-goers. With the inclusion of The Elephant House Greenhills and the array of new commercial establishments and restaurants, the Greenhills Mall is poised to become a vibrant hub of entertainment, leisure, and culinary experiences.

The expansion of The Elephant House and the growth of Greenhills Mall are not only a cause for celebration among Harry Potter fans but also a boon for the City of San Juan. The introduction of these new establishments will generate additional income through business tax payments, bolstering the local economy. Furthermore, the influx of commercial ventures will create job opportunities, providing valuable employment prospects for the residents of San Juan.

As the contract signing and ocular inspection concluded, the excitement surrounding The Elephant House Greenhills reached new heights. Harry Potter enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the grand opening, where they can immerse themselves in the magical world that captured their hearts. The collaboration between Visum Ventures, Museum Context Retail, and the Greenhills Mall management showcases the commitment to bringing unique and unforgettable experiences to the local community.

With The Elephant House Greenhills setting its roots in San Juan City, residents and visitors alike can look forward to a spellbinding journey, where the spirit of Harry Potter comes to life. This momentous occasion marks the beginning of a new chapter, where the magic of literature meets the vibrant tapestry of San Juan City's bustling commercial scene.
