Just in time for the holidays, SM City Grand Central will open its door on November 26, bringing the grandeur of shopping, leisure, and entertainment more exciting in the bustling city of Caloocan.
This is SM Prime Holdings Inc., 78th supermall and second SM mall in the city after SM Center Sangandaan opened in 2015.
A first-class and highly urbanized city, Caloocan plays a significant part in Philippine history as it was the center of activities and milestones for the Katipuneros. It has one of the most celebrated landmarks which is the monument to the revolutionary Andres Bonifacio, designed by national artist Guillermo Tolentino.
Caloocan City was named as one of the finalists by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) in its list of “most business-friendly cities in the country” plum in 2019 for four consecutive years. Today, the city continues to enjoy rapid economic growth from new waves of investors coming in including shopping malls.
Strategically located along Rizal Ave Ext, East Grace Park, SM City Grand Central will serve shoppers in the progressive city of Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela, as well as shoppers from parts of Manila, Quezon City, and Bulacan.
A fondly remembered mall, now refreshed and remastered for a new generation of CaMaNaVa-ns, SM City Grand Central entrances ensure convenient access including the direct connection to the LRT1 Monumento station.
The six-level mall with a 56,000-square-meter gross leasable area will house local and international brands. The SM Store and SM Supermarket are its major anchors along with SM Appliance Center, Our Home, Watsons, Surplus, Sports Central, Crocs, The Body Shop, Uniqlo, and Miniso. It will also have fashion boutiques, Cyberzone and wellness centers.
Moreover, the top floor features a first of its kind indoor garden, The Skylight Park where shoppers can enjoy al fresco dining in style with open green spaces. It also has a chapel and multi-purpose spaces designed as complements to the overall concept and further enhances its unique and grand character.
SM City Grand Central will have six digital cinemas – two state-of-the-art regular cinemas, two Director’s clubs that will offer a premium movie experience with a crystal-clear laser projection system, and for the first time, two private cinemas.
Lastly, for customers’ convenience and enhanced malling experience, SM City Grand Central will also provide covered parking space for various types of vehicles with more than 800 parking slots.
SM City Grand Central will provide an inviting, state-of-the-art, and memorable experience for all visitors, whether they are to shop, dine, play, worship, or simply relax. More than that, it will also be a catalyst for employment and business opportunities in the area.
