Robinsons Land Corp., (RLC) yesterday said it is set to start construction of Robinsons Calasiao, its first mall in the province of Pangasinan and the 30th in its chain of malls nationwide.
This brings the total ground floor area of all 30 Robinsons malls to 1.5 million sqms, the company said.
"We hope to open our doors to the warm people of Pangasinan soon. Robinsons Calasiao reflects Robinsons Land’s commitment to expand its mall chain in the region," said RLC president Frederick Go."
In the whole Luzon, RLC now has two malls in Pampanga and one each in the provinces of Tarlac, Ilocos Norte, Bulacan and Cabanatuan. The company also has several horizontal developments in Pampanga.
Go said RLC chose Calasiao for its first mall in Pangasinan because the first class municipality is strategically located between Dagupan City and San Carlos City. Connected via a major highway, Calasiao is just 15 minutes from Dagupan and 25 minutes from San Carlos City.
Similar in size to Robinsons malls recently opened in General Santos and Dumaguete cities, Robinsons Calasiao is a full-service mall and will have anchor stores and other retail stores to serve the needs of local residents as well as those in nearby towns and provinces.
Also expected to open outlets in the mall is a bookstore, an assortment of apparel and footwear stores, sit down fastfood restaurants, specialty outlets, an amusement center, service outlets and tech stores.
