It was another banner year for Robinsons Malls as it continues its expansion in the Philippines with the opening of 4 new malls: Robinsons Place Ormoc, Robinsons Place Pavia, Robinsons Place Tuguegarao, and Robinsons Place Valencia.
Robinsons Place Ormoc, Robinsons Malls' newest mall in Leyte, offers quality retail and leisure options to the growing market in the Western part of the province. Taking inspiration from the pineapple, the city’s most famous produce, the mall’s façade is accentuated with geometric triangular patterns. Robinsons Place Ormoc offers a wide selection of shops from fashion and lifestyle brands to well-loved dining concepts that complement its vibrant overall look.
Robinsons Place Pavia is strategically located between the Iloilo International airport and the city center, and caters to the emerging commercial district in Pavia. It is our first mall to have a water playground within its complex. AquaFun, a sprawling 3,500 square meter playground, features different water attractions such as colorful water buckets, spray grounds, jellyfish sprinklers, water slides and a wading pool for kids to enjoy. Located just outside the playground are food stalls and cabanas where families can dine and unwind.
Robinsons Malls reached an important milestone this year with the opening of Robinsons Place Tuguegarao, its 50th shopping center. There was no better place to mark this milestone than the bustling central hub of Cagayan province. Since its opening, the mall has been warmly received by shoppers and tenants. Its 6 state-of-the-art cinemas also continue to attract moviegoers from the city and nearby towns, making it one of the most successful Movieworld branches nationwide.
Robinsons Place Valencia, the first full-service mall in Bukidnon, brings a whole new level of shopping experience to the heart of Mindanao. Inspired by nature, the mall features pocket gardens, an alfresco area, and a Sky Park with an unobstructed view of the mountains. With 3 levels of shopping, dining and entertainment options, Robinsons Place Valencia is now the go-to mall, not only of residents, but even of shoppers from neighboring towns. It brings in top retail brands and restaurants, as well as regional and home-grown players.
The year also saw the relaunching of Robinsons Malls’ flagship mall in Ortigas. The newly redeveloped Robinsons Galleria Ortigas boasts of refreshed, modern interiors and exciting new additions to its tenant mix. Loyal patrons will be delighted to find new shopping, dining and pampering options at the new Digiworld, Veranda and Wellness zones. The expansive food court, now called Eat Street, gives off an industrial vibe with its brick walls, wooden floors and brightly lit stalls. Aside from these improved zones, shoppers can look forward to a revamped Movieworld, an upcoming VIP cinema, and a multilevel steel parking.
The opening of new malls, the upbeat performance of flagship malls Robinsons Place Manila and Robinsons Galleria, and the full year impact of malls introduced in 2017 fueled the growth in revenues. Robinsons Malls gears up for more projects in 2019 with the opening of a new premium mall in San Pedro, Laguna called Robinsons Galleria South, and the expansion of its successful premium Magnolia mall. Now with 51 shopping centers and 7 more in the pipeline, Robinsons Malls aims to expand to new territories and create more delightful destinations for discerning Filipino shoppers.
