Robinsons Place-General Santos construction in full swing

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.

Here is the exact announcement:

NOW ACCEPTING LEASE APPLICATIONS.  For inquiries, please call:

MANILA LEASE OFFICE:  Nicole Vargas or Abigail Bautista at (02) 683-6100 local 804 or (0922) 895-3437.  Email:  gensan.lease@robinsonsland.com or customer.care@robinsonsland.com

    Makes double the excitement knowing the Gokongweis (through the Gokongwei Brothers Foundation) are also tops in socio-civic mindedness, especially in the education sector. Let us hope they do not just bring in good business to Gensan but also good CSR work. :) Good luck!

    I just hope that the mall will be handicap friendly just like here in United states all the malls here are handicap friendly for they are providing wheelchairs for the old people and handicaps.

    I agree with you sir daxi – tops nga ang group of companies of d Gokongweis if CSR pag-uusapan.

    By d way, for those interested applicants, second round of hiring for Robinsons will be next month at our Public Employment Service Office, 2/F Old City Hall Bldg. For details, you may call them at 553-3479.

    Sana may aerial photo din ng robs gensan.. hehehe any updates sa SM GenSan? Sana alisin na ang tricycle sa mga main streets ng gensan at palitan nalang ng taxi and jeep… Malaking city na ang gensan at mas maganda kung puro 4 wheel vehicles na yung nakikita sa mga main streets.. GenSan is developing na, kaya expect na ng mga tao na tataas na din ang standard of living, part na yung pagbayad ng mahal sa pag commute.. It’s just either jeep or taxi… kasi lalala lang yung traffic kung di alisin ang mga tricycle…

    Sana may updates din sa EXPANSION ng KCC and Gaisano.. hehehehe

    Wala pa bang high rise building na itatayo sa GenSan?? Kaya naman ng gensan ang matataas na building dahil nakayanan nga ng Pudong eh…

  26. Jake says:

    Nga pala, ang GenSan ay isa na sa pinka impotant destinations ng Cebu Pacific.. According sa nakausap ko na taga 5J cargo, ang lakas daw talaga ng kita ng 5J sa cargo ng GenSan, both MNLGES and GESMNL at both am and pm flights… natutuwa din ako kasi medyo nag pipick up na yung CEBGES and GESCEB flights natin.. dati ang avergae pax per day nasa 70 to 80 ngayon lumalampas na ng 100… hopefully soon lagi na rin yung puno just like yung MNLGESMNL flights natin…

    # yes, you’re right there. that was also my comment previously na it’s about time that our tricycle here in gensan should be re-routed in minor streets. Add more jeepney routes so that hindi masyado maapektuhan naman ang commuters.And habal2x should be strictly banned from major streets, the same with all “kolorums transpo” para naman hindi unfair sa nag franchise. But all this development will have an effect on Gensan’s simple lifestyle, particularly sa transportation means natin.

  28. wow congrats to alabel magiging component city na ang alabel. m magiging 13 barangay na ang alabel.. kaya nman madadaragdagan ang city ng region 12.. and it is the first city in saragani province.. at magkadikit na ang gensan & alabel..

  29. jasper0127 says:

    Im in favor also of Alabel to become a component city mas madali kasi ang improvement ng isang lugar at maraming magtiwalang mgainvest if already a city

  30. jasper0127 says:

    pwede include narin ang polomolok bilang component city ng south cotabato?

  31. epm says:

    ^^Do you have a link where we can check for that news?

  32. Paolo says:

    You can actually refer to ABS-CBN’s VOD (Video on Demand)… hahaha! Just select General SAntos City and you should be redirected to a site in which you can see the latest news of ABS-CBN GenSan… ^^

    Why not. Polomolok is very much qualified na in terms of income and people density. mas bibo pa gani ang polomolok compared sa alabel, sa tinuod lang.

    Bakit walang Toys ‘r’ Us sa Robinson’s Place General Santos????

  42. jasper0127 says:

    @White Knight – that’s true mas bibo pa jud ang Polomolok kaso mas nauna ang city proposal ng alabel gusto ko nga isabay silang dalawa if pwede.

  43. JOMAI says:

    WALA PA SILANG HIRING??

    1. bariles says:

      @JOMAI
      hi! As far as I know, none yet. :)

  44. Mackay says:

    Everytime I pass by that construction site my heart swell with pride ( as a born and bred General) and with joy ( as a born and bred shopaholic). Hehehe.

    The location of Robinsons was the whole reason why I made a mad dash to Agan Centro main office to inquire about their housing. After all, it’s my dream come true to be living just a stone’s throw away from the mall.

    Go GenSan!
