Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) will expand its portfolio by launching two malls in Las Piñas and Antipolo later this year.
“With these two expansion [projects], we are going to hit the 1-million-square meter net leasable area mark for the last five malls recently opened. We have malls in Malabon City, Malolos City, Butuan, Roxas and Santiago [Isabela],” Frederick Go, RLC president, said in a statement on Monday.
Robinsons Place Las Piñas, which is located along the Alabang-Zapote Road, will be opened by September this year.
“With its proximity to other densely populated areas such as Alabang, Muntinlupa, Paranãque and Bacoor, Las Piñas truly represents an enticing location for doing business,” said Arlene Magtibay, RLC senior vice president and general manager for Commercial Centers Division.
She noted that Las Piñas has a population of over half a million people, and counting those from nearby municipalities, the mall will have a potential customer base of over 2 million.
Magtibay added that the mall site has 300 subdivisions within its 5-kilometer radius, as well as schools, hospitals and more than 700 commercial establishments.
Undergoing construction on a 6.8-hectare lot, the sprawling two-story mall will have a gross floor area of 59,877 square meters and a gross leasable area of 25,734 square meters. It will also have basement and open parking areas with over 500 slots.
Meanwhile, Robinsons Place Antipolo will be part of a mixed-use development of RLC along Sumulong Highway in Antipolo City.
“Robinsons Place Antipolo is part of a 16-hectare, mixed-use complex, composed of a mall, a terminal and a subdivision of Robinsons Homes,” Magtibay said.
Slated for opening also in September this year, Robinsons Place Antipolo is being constructed on a 5.7-hectare lot, and will have a gross floor area of 43,000 square meters and a gross leasable area of 26,400 square meters.
The mall expects to have more than 200 supporting tenants and anchor tenants, which include Robinsons Supermarket, Robinsons Department Store, Handyman, Robinsons Appliance Center and Robinsons Bank.
It will have four digital cinemas, including one 3D cinema, an amusement center and a food court. The mall will have 604 parking slots, the company said.
