Manila, Philippines - Gokongwei-led Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) is scaling up its presence in Cebu with a planned mixed-use complex that will house its biggest shopping mall outside Metro Manila, plus a budget hotel and office spaces catering to the business process outsourcing industry.

Robinsons Galleria Cebu, the group’s 38th mall, is targeted for completion and opening in 2014. The seven-story commercial building will rise on a 4.6 hectare lot along Gen. Maxilom Ave. and will have a gross floor area of about 156,000 square meters.

On the same site will rise the first Cebu branch of the group’s budget hotel, which will offer 153 rooms. Three floors are dedicated for BPO space with over 9,000 square meters of leasable space.

The retail component, on the other hand, will have a gross leasable area of 56,000 sqm spread on four levels.

RLC president Frederick D. Go said the company is ramping up investments in Cebu, which is experiencing robust economic growth and a booming tourism sector.

Robinsons Galleria Cebu will be RLC’s third mall in Cebu after Robinsons Fuente and Robinsons Cybergate Cebu, which is a mixed-use mall and office development also in the Fuente Osmeña area.

The company currently operates the newly renovated and improved Summit Circle Hotel in Fuente Osmeña Circle. The group will soon have three hotels in Cebu, including the Summit Shores Resort hotel which will be part of the upscale Amisa residential development on Mactan Island.

RLC is also building the Azalea Residences, a residential development in Gorordo Ave. Other RLC residential projects include Blue Coast and Aspen Heights which are under the Robinsons Communities and Robinsons Homes brands, respectively.
