Part of a province with a rich historical tradition, Tanza in Cavite is 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 Constitution of Malolos.
It’s another date with history on Friday, October 14, 2022, when SM City Tanza opens its doors to the public as SM Prime’s 80e mall. It is also the 7e supermall in this historic and bustling province after SM City Bacoor, SM City Dasmarinas, SM City Molino, SM City Rosario, SM City Trece Martires and SM Center Imus. SM also has a Marketmall in Dasmarinas.
Strategically located on an 86,718 square meter site along the Antero Soriano Highway, SM City Tanza will serve buyers in the northwest areas of Cavite as well as nearby Batangas. More than that, it will be a catalyst for employment and business opportunities in the region.
The design of the nearly 60,000 square meter two-storey mall is inspired by Tanza’s main livelihoods of agriculture and fishing, as well as its neighboring coastal resorts. Symbolizing the warmth of the colors of the boats and the serenity of the seas, its interior is configured in an L-shape, with louvred natural light that extends throughout the mall area, including the Cyberzone.
The ceiling is accentuated by curvilinear light lines representing the ripples of the sea. The mall also has a 1,500 square meter event center for activities and exhibits. It also has a lushly landscaped interior space that will provide the mall with a place to relax, shop and dine.
SM Store and SM Supermarket are the main anchors of SM City Tanza along with SM Appliance Center, ACE Hardware, Watsons, Surplus, Uniqlo, Pet Express, Miniso, Levi’s and Crocs. It will also include fashion boutiques, jewelry stores and bookstores, as well as service and wellness centres.
Dining 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 technology enthusiasts.
For the convenience of its customers and an enhanced shopping experience, SM City Tanza will have nearly 800 spaces in its car park. The new mall will also have transit terminals for inter-provincial and inter-regional travel which will further boost tourism and trade in the region.
The SM City Tanza project team includes DSGN, design consultant; Asya, Registered Architect; RM Cabanela, construction management; and Dahn Bager, general contractor.
