La Cantera was the first mall that GGP expanded with the affluent Mexican National customer in mind. This was the first time that GGP really thought about severing a customer that was not their traditional American suburban white housewife. The mix of merchants and the design of the shops reflected a higher level of high end brands and a higher level landscaping. La Cantera success demonstrates the power of a disciplined method of market analysis and development, marketing and leasing execution to attract diverse customers segments.
