The store will be spread over an area of about 500 meters on the second floor, instead of the Mango branch which will move to the lower floor, replacing Castro. Next to Mango will open a branch of the online brand Alo Yoga, which is opening a store on the ground floor of the mall and will cover an area of 215 square meters.

Also, the mall is in the stages of expansion and construction of a third floor to which the fast food complex will be moved and in its place new and unique stores and brands will be added (on the second floor of the mall). The work on the construction of the third floor is expected to be completed at the end of the year. The total cost for the project to upgrade the visibility of the mall, add the third floor and expand the Zara store amounts to approximately NIS 120 million.
