SM GETS A WARM WELCOME IN SANGANDAAN

1

Residents of Caloocan, as well as nearby towns of Malabon and Navotas, gave SM warm welcome when it opened its new shopping center in the city last October 23, 2015.

As soon as SM Prime Holdings President Hans T. Sy together with Caloocan City Mayor Oscar Malapitan opened the mall to welcome the first wave of customers, eager crowds quickly filled SM’s first mall in Caloocan to enjoy its shopping, leisure, and entertainment fun.

SM Center Sangandaan is the first mall in the budding business district of Caloocan City. It is a testament of SM’s confidence in the city’s booming economy as it will be a catalyst for employment, business opportunities, as well as lifestyle trends for residents of the bustling city and nearby towns.

Located on a 10, 569.87 square meter property along Marcelo H. Del Pilar Street and Samson Road in Sangandaan; the three-storey 38,622 square meter mall is the 55th SM mall in the Philippines. It is an architectural gem that creates a memorable identity along both of its main street frontages.

Because Sangandaan is home to many universities, colleges, and thriving businesses as well as manufacturing companies, the mall’s design reflects SM’s groundbreaking approach to retail as it creates a lively shopping center through bold and dynamic exterior wall. A vivid wall pattern established the center as a bold presence of the urban streetscape, and the primary mall entrance is elevated slightly from the sidewalk, covered along the street by elegant canopies.

Shoppers arriving in private cars are quickly guided from the main frontage road to a multi-level carpark that connects to each level of the center for optimal shopping experience. For customer convenience, the mall has allotted multi-level parking with more than 400 slots.

The interior of SM Center Sangandaan is organized around a simple planned atrium that allows clear line-of-sight to all shops on all levels at all times. A strategically placed bridge provides convenient access to all areas of the mall, and a soaring glass elevator, stairs, and escalators allow easy access to all levels. The interior design is simple and bold with strong bursts of bright color, daylit from above with an ample skylight and continuous clerestories. The SM Cinema and Cyberzone both feature their own designs, establishing unique identities for each of these entertainment and retail offerings.

Featuring the biggest supermarket in the municipality through SM Supermarket, SM Center Sangandaan is also a home to Caloocan’s first digital theater through SM Cinema, as well as the first technological lifestyle center; Cyberzone. Likewise, SM Center Sangandaan houses SM mainstays like SM Appliance Center, Watsons, Ace Hardware, and BDO.

Fashion boutiques like Simply Shoes, Bench, and Penshoppe; jewelry stores like Broadway Gems, EMO, and Unisilver Time; eyewear stores like Executive Optical and Ideal Vision as well as wellness like Novagen Eye, and amusement centers like Worlds of Fun and Quantum will also enhance the shopping experience.

Mall goers can enjoy eating out options from major national and international chains like KFC, Gong Cha, Bo’s Coffee, Gilligans, Classic Savory, and many more.

SM Center Sangandaan’s design team includes DSGN Associates, mall designer Robert Meckfessel; Don Lee Builders; CH Perez, Construction Manager; and EDD Construction, Project Managers.

SM OPENS FIRST MALL IN CALOOCAN CITY

SM Prime Holdings recently opened its first mall in the budding business district of Caloocan City. SM Center Sangandaan is a testament of SM’s confidence in the city’s booming economy as it will be a catalyst for employment, business opportunities, as well as lifestyle trends for residents of the bustling city and nearby towns.

Located on a 10, 569.87 square meter property along Samson Road and A. Mabini Street, Sangandaan; the three-storey 38,622 square meter mall is the 55th SM mall in the Philippines that offers a full range of shopping, leisure, and entertainment. It is an architectural gem built along the strategic busy intersection connecting the thriving cities of Malabon, Navotas, and Caloocan.

Because Sangandaan is home to many universities, colleges, and thriving businesses as well as manufacturing companies, the mall’s design reflects SM’s groundbreaking approach to retail as it creates a lively shopping center through bold and dynamic exterior wall.

The mall’s facade is characterized in different shades of blue, giving the exterior a quirky geometric visual interest from several vantage points.

Behind SM Center Sangandaan façade, interior spaces are complemented by pristine white walls. The dominant blue patterns on the floors produce beautiful contrasts against the overall white canvas architecture style, blending perfectly into the color palette of the mall’s exterior.

The high white ceiling adds further dimension to the pleasant and inviting ambience of the mall. The elegant streak of LED downlights simulate a ‘starry sky’, providing a soft background illumination for shoppers, while the mall’s continuous clerestories maximizes daylight and use of energy efficient sources.

SM Center Sangandaan features the biggest supermarket in the municipality through SM Supermarket. It is also a home to Caloocan’s first digital theater through SM Cinema, as well as the first technological lifestyle center; Cyberzone. Likewise, SM Center Sangandaan houses SM mainstays like SM Appliance Center, Watsons, Ace Hardware, and BDO.
