Robinson’s Land Corporation of the Gokongwei family has earmarked 5 Billion Pesos for the construction of Robinsons Galleria Cebu at General Maxilom Extension, Cebu City. Robinsons Galleria Cebu is a mixed use property that will have a mall, hotel, and office space components. The 4.6 hectare complex that is located along the North Reclamation Area will eventually have four high-rise condominiums.
The first phase involves the construction of a 7-story commercial building that will house the first Go Hotel Branch in Cebu. The Go Hotel Cebu will have 153 rooms. It has a similar business model with sister company Cebu Pacific where customers can pay for cheaper rooms if they book earlier. The hotels tag line is “We want you to sleep like royalty, but we won’t ask you to fork out a king’s ransom”. The value for money hotel chain currently has branches in Manila, Palawan, Tacloban, Bacolod, and Dumaguete.
The commercial building will have four storeys allocated for a shopping mall with a gross leasable area of 56,000 sq. m. The mall will have 6 cinemas including two 3d theaters. It will have some familiar tenants Robinsons Department Store, Robinsons Supermarket, True Value, Robinsons Appliances, Saizen, and Toys R’ Us. The Robinsons Galleria Mall Cebu will be the 38th Mall of Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC). It is set to be the biggest Robinsons Mall outside Metro Manila. The other 3 floors of the building will be allocated for BPO offices. The expected completion of the first of the mall is in 2014.
Next year, RLC is planning to launch the first condominium tower in the Robinsons Galleria Cebu Complex. The construction of this new development is a big sign that RLC is confident in Cebu’s economic prospects. The company operates 2 existing malls in Cebu, the Robinsons Place in Fuente Osmena and the Robinsons Cybergate in Don Gil Garcia St.
The residential division of RLC currently has four projects under development in Cebu. The Amisa Private Residence in Mactan under the Robinsons Luxuria Brand, the Azalea Place in Lahug under the Robinsons Residences Brand, the Blue Coast Residences in Mactan under the Robinsons Communities Brand, and the Aspen Heights Subdivision in Consolacion, Cebu.
