Planning[edit]

The 2011 SM Investments Corporation's annual report initially gives hints to the upcoming SM Supermall in San Mateo which is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Rizal province. San Mateo is selected by SM Prime Holdings to build an SM City to stay ahead with competition by addressing the continued greater demand of convenience and accessibility of its customers for city neighborhoods and fast growing provincial cities.[3]

Construction[edit]

Site clearing began in May 2013 then a public consultation led by SM representatives was conducted in June 2013 for residents of Brgy. Ampid 1. Full blast construction started in December 2013 having DDT Konstract, Inc. as SM City San Mateo's general contractor wherein SM Investments Corporation is one of its clients.[4]

Location[edit]

SM City San Mateo is located northbound along a two-lane national road, Gen. Luna Avenue, in Brgy. Ampid 1, San Mateo, Rizal, which connects J.P. Rizal Road of Marikina City in Metro Manila from the south and Mabini Road of Rodriguez also in Rizal Province to the north. Its location is strategically planned such that it can cater approximately at least half a million patrons coming from more than 200,000 residents each of San Mateo and Rodriguez; northern Barangays of Marikina City nearest to San Mateo - Brgy. Nangka, Tumana, Malanday, Concepcion Uno, Parang, and Fortune with combined population of at least 100,000; and among the most populated Barangays in the eastern district of Quezon City - Brgy. Batasan Hills, parts of Bagong Silangan, Commonwealth, Holy Spirit, and Matandang Balara with a total of at least 200,000, which the latter Barangays have access coming from Commonwealth Avenue and Batasan Road connecting through Batasan-San Mateo Road (direct access of origin for Brgy. Batasan Hills) from west intersecting with Gen. Luna Avenue to the east.

Fraction of the mall site is previously situated by a school named Eastern Star Academy which is then transferred to Brgy. Sta. Ana beside ICCT Colleges San Mateo Campus. The mall is also near to its closest competitors - Puregold San Mateo and BudgetLane SulitMarket also along Gen. Luna Avenue.
