History[edit]

SM Department Store in Harrison Plaza

Inaugurated in 1976,[1] Harrison Plaza was the first shopping mall in the Philippines. For two years, between 1982 and 1984, the shopping mall was shuttered for renovations. When it was reopened to the public in 1984, the mall was anchored by the country's major Department Store chains like SM Department Store and Rustan's.

Since the New Millennium to the present, Harrison Plaza has continued to acquire more and more anchors like True Value Hardware and Shopwise. Now, Harrison Plaza houses more than 200 shops and services.

In June 2016, it was reported that SM Prime Holdings is planning to invest ₱39.44 billion to redevelop the mall and plans to put up business process outsourcing offices and residential towers in the Harrison Plaza complex. The firm is partnering with the city government of Manila which will have economic interest from the redevelopment project.[1]
