SM City Cauayan is a shopping mall owned by SM Prime Holdings, the largest mall developer in the Philippines. The mall will be located along National Highway, District II, Cauayan City, Isabela, Philippines. It will be the first SM Supermall in the whole Region 2, better known as Cagayan Valley. It is designed by DSGN Associates, EAurelio Landscape Design Inc. and JRP Design Inc.


Planning[edit]

The Cagayan Valley region is one of the few regions on the Philippines without SM Supermall, the well-known supermall brand in the Philippines which is owned by Chinese tycoon Henry Sy. Isabela, the richest province among the 5 provinces in the region was the prospect of the SM Management as future site of the mall. Originally, it was supposed to be built in Santiago City, Isabela in 2009, but was shelved due to unknown issues.[1] In 2011, SM Prime transferred the project to the province's second city, Cauayan City.[2] On November 8, 2012 SM Investments Corp. has set a P65 billion capital expenditures for 2013 for future SM Malls including the SM in Cauayan City, the expanded SM Megamall and SM Aura Premier.[3] Construction began in 2012 in the acquired lot of former Isabela Colleges, the mall was set to open on March 2014 but moved to May 9, 2014 making it the 49th SM Supermall in the Philippines.

Location[edit]

Cauayan, Isabela is the Agro-Industrial Capital of Cagayan Valley and the Central Business District of Region II where rice and corn are the main products. Millions of people residing in this region are either directly engaged in farming, food processing, and other agri- businesses yet the number of shopping centers have remained limited and scattered. According to SM Supermall,[4] Cauayan is the ideal starting point in establishing the company's presence up North-East Luzon as it caters to unserved markets. SM City Cauayan will be the first SM Supermall in North-Eastern Luzon, and the first SM City mall in Northern Luzon to offer Uniqlo, a popular Japanese clothing store. Watsons, a popular cosmetics and drug chain, is also one of the major anchors of SM City Cauayan.[5]

Design and Construction[edit]

Described by SM Supermall as its first Strip mall, SM City Cauayan will hold the title as the first non-premier SM Supermall to offer al-fresco malling.

The mall will feature a vibrant landscape that incorporates nature into the design. Ceiling fans will be used to ventilate the arcaded walkways and storefront hallways, a green and cost-effective approach compared with the typical use of air conditioners. Its exterior features include warmly colored panels in random pattern to give a festive mood which will be combined with glass and steel finishes for a modern touch. Its carpark building will have LED parking locators to make it convenient for customers while at the same time minimizing the fuel consumption.[4]
