Robinsons Place Manila is a shopping mall located behind the Philippine General Hospital and the campus of the University of the Philippines Manila in the City of Manila. It was the second and by-far, the largest Robinsons Mall ever built by John Gokongwei. It began operations in 1995 and was opened in 1997. The mall features anchors like Robinsons Supermarket and Robinsons Department Store.
Robinsons Manila was originally built in the 1980s, on the site of what was then the campus of the Ateneo de Manila University before it relocated toLoyola Heights, and the Assumption Convent before it relocated to San Lorenzo Village, Makati. It was then redeveloped into a 7-level shopping complex that houses more than 330 local shops, dining outlets, entertainment facilities and service centers. The Padre Faura Wing was opened on June 2000 which contains more shopping and dining facilities. It has opened another wing, The Midtown Wing or The Midtown in mid-2008, making it larger than Robinsons Galleria and therefore the largest Robinsons Mall.
