Every time I pass by the site of the P2billion peso- Robinsons Place-General Santos (yes, that’s the final name) along the Lagao National Highway, I am amazed at the speed of the ongoing construction.

A few weeks back, the portion of the 8-hectare lot was just a field of steel cables jutting from the ground.  Now, you can already see the outline of the frontage of the two-storey building behind their perimeter fence made of galvanized sheets.

Advertising streamers (click on the images below) have also been posted on the fence announcing the imminent entry of the mall including what people from Soccsksargen could expect inside, which are:

  • Robinsons Department Store
  • Robinsons Supermarket
  • Robinsons Appliance
  • Robinsons Movieworld
  • Handyman Do It Best
  • Boutiques
  • Foodcourt
  • Restaurants
  • Amusement Centers
  • Bookstore
  • Drugstore

Scheduled to open during the 2nd quarter of 2009, Robinsons Place -General Santos has also announced that it is now accepting LEASE APPLICATIONS, from people or groups interested in putting up their own businesses inside the mall.
