SM Prime’s 80th mall is now open in the Land of the Brave.
SM City Tanza opened its doors to the public last October 14. It’s the 7th supermall in the historic and bustling province of Cavite 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 a 86,718sqm site along Antero Soriano Highway, SM City Tanza will serve shoppers in the northwestern areas of Cavite as well as in nearby Batangas. Moreover, it will serve as a catalyst for employment and business opportunities in the area.
The two-storey mall’s design is inspired by farming and fishing—the chief means of livelihood in Tanza—as well as by its nearby beach resorts in the coastlines. Symbolizing warmth from the colors of the boats and serenity of the seas, its interior is configured in an L-shaped layout, provided with natural clerestory light that stretches across the mall area. The ceiling is accented with curvilinear cove light lines depicting the ripples of the sea.
SM City Tanza also has a 1,500sqm Events Center for activities and exhibits, as well as a lush landscaped indoor area.
SM Store and SM Supermarket are SM City Tanza’s major anchors along with SM Appliance Center, ACE Hardware, Watsons, Surplus, UNIQLO, Pet Express, Miniso, Levi’s, and Crocs. It will also have fashion boutiques, jewelry stores, bookstores, as well as service and wellness centers.
Eating out options include a food court; specialty restaurants such as 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’s 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 that will further boost 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.
