SM Prime Holdings Inc., one of the leading integrated property developers in Southeast Asia, is opening SM City Grand Central in Caloocan on Nov. 26, 2021, Friday.
In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, the firm said this latest development will add more than 116,000 square meters (sqm) of gross floor area (GFA) in the company’s mall portfolio.
The new mall will have six levels of retail spaces meant for a whole new level of shopping, dining, entertainment and recreational experiences in the City of Caloocan.
“As the economy starts to re-open given the improving COVID-19 condition in major key areas in the Philippines, primarily here in Metro Manila, we are pleased to welcome customers to our newest mall, SM City Grand Central,” SM Prime President Jeffrey C. Lim said.
He added that, “The same standard of health and safety protocols will be implemented for a safe and comfortable shopping and dining experience when you visit an SM mall.” SM City Grand Central will be housing popular local and international retail and dining shops accentuated by stunning mall features that are made for Filipino families to enjoy.
It is set to reignite the malling experience in the area just like how it used to be in the early ‘90s. SM City Grand Central will be opening with more than 70 percent of space lease awarded.
SM City Grand Central is located at the heart of the commercial district of Caloocan with connections to various transportation terminals going in and out of the Metro including LRT 1 via Monumento Station.
It will house more than 700 parking slots, 4 Digital Cinemas, 2 Director’s Club, 2 Regular Cinemas, Foodcourt, Cyberzone, Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Satellite Office, Chapel of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, and The Skylight Park indoor garden.
With Filipino families in mind, The Skylight Park in SM City Grand Central is a first of its kind indoor park set to offer a breather from the bustling city scene, while enjoying al fresco dining in style and self-care activities in its Health and Wellness Zone.
“As when this pandemic started, SM will continue to support the government’s COVID-19 response program so that we can all look forward to a better and brighter year ahead,” Lim said.
