If you think the opening of SM Seaside City will be the last big event in Cebu, you're wrong. The biggest Robinson's mall outside Metro Manila will also rise in town hopefully this year.
Robinsons Galleria Cebu, the 38th Robinson's mall in the country, is being constructed right next to the old fire-gutted White Gold and across Pier 4.
The one-stop-shop will also house the first gohotels.ph in Cebu and business process outsourcing service providers.
For the seven-storey structure, about P56,000 square meters will be up for lease. On the other hand, 153 rooms will be available for gohotels.ph. BPO offices will also be occuping three levels.
The third Robinsons mall in Cebu will have six cinemas including two 3D theaters that could seat a total of 1,800 people. About 300 tenants are also expected to be inside the mixeed-use development.
