MANILA, Philippines -  Robinsons Malls continues to expand and build new developments throughout the country. In November  this year, Robinsons Place Roxas is scheduled to open in Roxas City, the ‘Seafood Capital’ of the Philippines.

As the newest and largest first full-service mall in the area, it is envisioned to serve not only the 47 barangays of Roxas City, but the 16 towns of Capiz province in Panay Island as well.

The mall will be situated at the northern portion of Pueblo de Panay, an emerging commercial development in Brgy. Lawaan in the outskirts of Roxas City. Consisting of a two-level commercial structure with a total floor area of 37,000 square meters, the mall will have anchor tenants like Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons Department Store, food court, Robinsons Movieworld, Handyman Do-it-Best, Robinsons Appliance Center,  an amusement center and a bingo activity center.

In addition, over 100 home, clothing and fashion, jewelry and accessory, music and video, footwear and specialty stores, fast-food and casual dining restaurants will be housed in the mall. And for the added convenience of shoppers, other tenants will include bookstores, banks and government agencies.

Notably, the mall will feature four state-of-the-art cinemas (three digital and one 3D) that can seat over 1,000  moviegoers. These will be equipped with the latest digital technology for an enhanced viewing experience.

“As the first full service mall in Roxas, Robinsons Place Roxas will  bring the ultimate  shopping, lifestyle and business convenience under one roof,” says Arlene G. Magtibay,  Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) general manager for Commercial Centers Division.  

“At Robinsons Place Roxas, we will offer both quality and affordability with a complete and assorted variety of well-known retail brands.”

The spacious mall is designed to be a community hub and a large main atrium  is incorporated in the building design. This is an ideal venue for a variety of local shows, events, exhibitions and other community gatherings.

Robinsons Place Roxas mall is a regional shopping center of exceptional aesthetic appeal. Its external façade has tinted glass curtain walls and attractive horizontal banding in beige hues with red color wall accents.   Full height showcase windows allow mall-goers to take advantage of natural lighting, and green spaces will be strategically placed throughout the development. These will follow an Asian tropical landscaping design, where areas will be predominantly planted with tropical palms. The 800-space open parking area, too, will be landscaped to follow the theme.

Magtibay says that accessibility is foremost. “The mall is just one kilometer away from Roxas City’s main plaza and  is conveniently 200 meters away from an existing bus and AUV terminal”.  She adds that for those from outlying areas who want to spend more time in Roxas City, Hotel Veronica, Cler Grand Hotel and Urban Manor Hotel are nearby.
