Robinsons Place Jaro: Community center in Iloilo City
Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) unveils its 44th mall property with the opening of Robinsons Place Jaro in Iloilo City. A 3-level full service mall, it consists of pleasurable shopping and dining outlets on every floor, with multi-level surface parking on the 2nd and 3rd levels as well as the basement level where the Lingkod Pinoy centers and service hubs are located. The easy access from all parking levels allows shoppers to pick up essentials at Robinsons Supermarket and/or at Robinsons Department Store. Shoppers can expect an enjoyable experience like they’re used to in a community center.
Robinsons Place Jaro boasts of its modern presence in Iloilo City’s heritage sector, yet seamlessly melding with the other edifices in the area. The contemporary architecture employs earth-toned concepts in granite and aluminum composite panels. Shoppers that alight from the curved driveway in the main entrance will be greeted by an eye-catching glass window that affords a preview of the exciting things therein. The sun baffle canopy, on the other hand, allows natural light to streak into the main hallway while deflecting glare and heat. The design details and aesthetics are akin to those of other new RLC malls, like Robinsons Magnolia, with brighter and wider hallways.
Robinsons Place Jaro is set to be the second Robinsons mall in the province of Iloilo; creating a hub that locals can make part of their daily routine while offering a unique experience where closely-knit families would love to shop and dine. The serene-like ambiance of the mall interiors is surely to add to the over-all appeal of the Mall. RLC, as responsible developers, made sure that the Mall will appeal to the genteel nature of the locals. The ground floor, with its mix of dining and retail concepts, is a haven of relaxed, warm and cozy atmosphere where family gatherings are celebrated most often.
The second level can be branded as a hobbyists hub which meets the needs of niche markets who are passionate with their handiwork and past time. The third level which alludes to be comfort zone, on the other hand, offers a unique watch & dine experience in a “cineplex and food court” concept. Five world class cinemas offer state-of-the-art silverscreens, with provisions for PWDs. The homey garden-inspired food court, decked with dining chairs, bar stools and lounge chairs, offer scrumptious concoctions from juice bars, salad stations, Mediterranean cuisine as well as local staples like batchoy and bas-uy.
One of Iloilo’s six congressional districts, Jaro’s accessibility from nearby provinces and all forms of travel conveyances makes every visit a veritable ‘walk in the park.’ Bounded by the province of Capiz and the Jintotolo Channel in the north, Panay Gulf and the Iloilo Strait in the south, the Visayan and Guimaras straits in the east, and the province of Antique on the west, vessels and carriers plying routes to and from Jaro bring both residents and transients into the city. Plus, flights to and from both local and international destinations from Iloilo’s sprawling international airport carry passengers entering and leaving the city.
Majority of the mestizo families from Iloilo comes from this district, making Jaro a major commercial center. Named as one of the most economically-advanced areas in the city, even during the Galleon Trade era, it has remained an important port of call to this day. Jaro is likewise on the national pilgrimage calendar as it is home of the famous National Shrine of Our Lady of Candles. This is the charm of Jaro that has endeared people to visit it as a favored destination time and again.
Robinsons Place Jaro enlivens the mall experience with a bit of nostalgia; enlivening the place where locals frequent, especially alumni who finished schooling therein. It is the latest addition to RLC’s ever-growing property portfolio.
With the opening of another mall in Iloilo, the Robinsons malling experience just got twice as nice. For more information, simply visit the company Web site, www.robinsonsmalls.com or contact 0998-8401713.
