SM City Bacoor is a shopping mall in Brgy. Habay in the City of Bacoor, Cavite in the Philippines. It is developed and owned by SM Prime Holdings, the largest shopping mall and retail operator in the country. The mall is the very first SM Supermall in the entire Luzon region outside of Metro Manila and the very first in province of Cavite. The shopping, food and movie complex is located at the major intersection of Aguinaldo Highway, the road that leads to the highland region of the province, and Tirona Highway, which leads to the coastal area of the province. The four-level building has a total floor area of 120,202 m2 (1,293,840 sq ft) on a land area of 84,000 m2 (21 acres).

History[edit]

As one of the two SM Supermalls opened in the year 1997 (the other being SM City Fairview), SM Prime Holdings prides itself as a leading shopping mall developer in the country. The construction of the mall started in 1996 as a three-level shopping complex. However, due to the demands of Bacoor government and residents to make the shopping complex much bigger because of the recent growth of population in the municipality, SM Prime Holdings decided to transform it into a four-level shopping complex, enough to accommodate and serve the needs of people of Bacoor and its neighboring towns. The grand opening of the mall was held on July 25, 1997.

Typhoon Glenda destruction[edit]

On July 16, 2014, it did not open the SM City Bacoor at 10:00 am because there was no electricity and water during Typhoon Glenda, however, SM City Bacoor opened at 12:00 nn and closed at 10:00 pm.

Mall features[edit]

The mall's interior and exterior designs are similar to SM City Fairview and SM City Iloilo, particularly the wave design of their roofs. It was the biggest mall in Cavite for 14 years, till it was surpassed by its sister mall, SM City Dasmariñas in 2011 with its gross floor area (GFA) larger by 10,000 square metres (110,000 sq ft). However, it still remains as one of the largest landmarks in the province and the biggest building erected in the city of Bacoor.

Main building[edit]

The main building is a four-level shopping complex, with the first four levels occupied and leased to several major tenants and numerous minor tenants. The entire 4th level is unoccupied as of 2013.

Warehouse building[edit]

The warehouse building is located at the western side of the main building.

Parking spaces[edit]

Wide parking spaces are available at the back of the mall. A separate parking lot extension is located in front of the mall.

Future expansion[edit]

Expansion plans are underway for the mall complex. The project calls for the development of a new annex building on the vacant grassland adjacent to the west wing of the mall that will house 200+ shops and a BPO[clarification needed] component. Construction is set to start by 2015.
