Roberto Santiago is known in Brazil as a successful business person. He is credited for revitalizing shopping in Joao Pessoa. Everyone knows how much Brazilians like to shop, which was something that drove Santiago to surprise the people of Joao Pessoa with a new kind of shopping experience. This partly led to the erection of the Manaira Shopping mall, which was opened back in 1989. It did not take long for citizens of the town to fall in love with the shopping center.
It should be noted that his shopping center gave something to the community of Joao Pessoa. The mall is quite large compared to others, meaning that it needed to employ a number of people, and most of them live within this community. Many have seen the results of his mall and its ability to supply the people of Joao Pessoa with additional revenue to do all the things they always wanted to do. There is no doubt that Santiago not only revolutionized the shopping in this town but also revitalized economic growth.
Santiago was born on July 16, 1958, and he was born in the town where his most precious property, the Manaira Shopping center, now stands. The man attended the University Center, which is in this town he has grown fond of. He studied Business Administration at the school. The skills he learned at school along with his past experiences helped him successfully introduce his famed mall. It only took him two years to build and open the mall though he put a lot of thought into its construction.
One thing that makes the Manaira Shopping center special is that it provides a modernized shopping experience to those who visit it. There is a theater in the mall and gaming area. Of course, the mall does contain a number of shopping stores and a food court like many other malls, but it has a number of additional perks that are little rare. For example, there are college and financial institutions within the walls and a gym. Still, one of the most unique aspects of this mall is the rooftop concert hall.
Santiago wanted his mall to be the pillar of entertainment for the town, and he knew that giving the mall a rooftop concert hall, which is called the Domus Hall, would be great. Musical concerts, conferences, exhibits, graduations, weddings, and several other types of events have been held at this concert hall. It can hold up to 10,000 people should they be standing, which goes to show just how large the concert hall is. The Domus Hall is soundproof, and it even has private areas for parties that are meant to be small. One only needs to tour the mall to see just how much of a visionary Santiago truly is because he saw how much good this mall would do for the town.
