Tacloban’s mall aspiration: Update
View latest update posted April 09, 2008
So I was not alone in my assessment on Tacloban’s need for a decent shopping center, even just a small mall. If my site’s statistics feedback is any indication, my post, “Tacloban’s mall aspiration” is currently among the top 5 visited posts!
So acceding to the request of many for updates on this development, here are the latest photos of Robinsons Mall Tacloban (yes, I went up again for some aerial shots!) 🙂
The building in the upper-left side of the photos above is not part of the mall development; it is a warehouse mart.

As expected, this development has prompted a response from the competition. A Taclobanon posted this reply on Gaisano Tacloban’ s plans to renovate its store at Justice Romualdez and also mentioned about plans to build another branch somewhere along Real St (exact location still unconfirmed).
Here’s the architect’s rendition of the proposed new Gaisano Capital Mall Tacloban:
