SM opens 80th mall

As part of a province with a rich historical tradition, Tanza in Cavite is the place where Emilio Aguinaldo was sworn in as President of the revolutionary government of the Philippines. It is also the birthplace of Felipe G. Calderon, who composed the Malolos Constitution.

It’s another date with history on Friday, 14 October 2022, when SM City Tanza opens its doors to the public as SM Prime’s 80th mall. It is also the 7th supermall in this historic and bustling province after SM City Bacoor, SM City Dasmariñas, SM City Molino, SM City Rosario, SM City Trece Martires, and SM Center Imus. SM also has a Marketmall in Dasmariñas.

Strategically located in an 86,718 square meter site along Antero Soriano Highway, SM City Tanza will serve shoppers in the northwestern areas of Cavite and nearby Batangas. More than that, it will catalyze employment and business opportunities in the area.

The two-story, almost 60,000 square meter mall’s design is inspired by the chief means of livelihood in Tanza, which is farming and fishing, as well as by its nearby beach resorts on the coastlines.

Symbolizing warmth from the colors of the boats and the serenity of the seas, its interior is configured in an L-shaped layout, provided with natural clerestory light that stretches across the mall area, including the Cyberzone.

The ceiling is accented with curvilinear cove light lines depicting the ripples of the sea. The mall also has a 1,500-square-meter Events Center for activities and exhibits. It also features a lush landscaped indoor area that will provide the mall with a place to relax, shop and dine.

SM Store and SM Supermarket are SM City Tanza’s major anchors, SM Appliance Center, ACE Hardware, Watsons, Surplus, Uniqlo, Pet Express, Miniso, Levi’s and Crocs. It will also have fashion boutiques, jewelry stores, bookstores, and service and wellness centers.

Eating out options include a Food Court; specialty restaurants like Mesa, Botejyu, The Great Buddha Café, Marugame Udon and Tempura, and Crustasia Asian Bistro; and international and local food chains like Kenny Rogers, Panda Express, Bon Chon, Coffee Bean, and Tea Leaf, Mary Grace Café, Breadtalk, J. Co Donuts and Coffee and Starbucks.

SM City Tanza will also have five state-of-the-art cinemas and a Cyberzone for techie enthusiasts.

For its customer convenience and enhanced malling experience, SM City Tanza will have almost 800 slots in its carpark. The new mall will also have public transport terminals for inter-province and inter-region travel, further boosting tourism and commerce in the area.

SM City Tanza’s project team includes DSGN, Design Consultant; Asya, Architect on Record; RM Cabanela, Construction Management; and Dahn Bager, General Contractor.
