Robinsons Metro East (formerly known as Robinsons Place Metro East) is a shopping mall owned by Robinsons Malls . Robinsons Metro East is situated along Marikina–Infanta Highway, located at the boundaries between the barangays of Dela Paz in Pasig and San Roque in Marikina ,Philippines. The mall, opened in 2001, is currently the 3rd largest mall in the Philippines owned by Robinsons Malls.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The location was first occupied by a Uniwide Warehouse owned by Jimmy Gow's Uniwide Sales, Inc. and was subsequently sold to Gokongwei, who demolished the warehouse. Construction of the mall began in mid-1998, and Robinsons Metro East opened its doors to the public in 2001. The name "Metro East" refers to the fact that the mall is located in the eastern district of the Greater Manila Area, which includes the cities of Pasig and Marikina in Metro Manila as well as Antipolo, and the municipalities of Cainta and San Mateo in Rizal.

Mall features[edit]

The main building of Metro East is one of the largest structures along Marcos Highway. The mall is a 5-level building with 4 upper levels and a basement level. The mall also provides a 5-level elevated indoor carpark.

2009 Renovation[edit]

On 26 September 2009, the basement level of the mall was flooded as a result of Typhoon Ketsana. This, in turn, led to the closure of the entire mall. Renovation of the mall began in August 2011 and was completed in 2012.[1]
