It is located along Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr. Avenue (formerly Jaro West Diversion Road) in the district of Mandurriao in Iloilo City. It has a land area of 170,000 m2 (1,800,000 sq ft) and a total gross floor area of 181,657 m2 (1,955,340 sq ft).

History[edit]

The mall complex was designed by Palafox Associates with D.A. Abcede & Associates as consultants and Young Builders Corporation as the contractor. Built on the same design template of SM City Fairview and SM City Bacoor at the height of Asian Financial Crisis, its interior, and the external facade has a resemblance to the two other malls. SM City Iloilo was opened to the public on June 11, 1999.[1] The mall features main anchors like The SM Store, SM Supermarket, SM Cinemas, SM Foodhall and SM Foodcourt. The mall underwent a major renovation in the 2nd quarter of 2008 and was completed in the 1st quarter of 2009. TeleTech Customer Care Management Philippines Inc., a BPO company occupies the entire 3rd level of the mall (not including the expansion wing).

In 2009, an annex (The SouthPoint) with a floor area of 4,218 m2 (45,400 sq ft), adjacent to the main mall building was built to house some food-based tenants.

In 2015, the new expansion wing (also known as Northpoint in SM City Iloilo's Facebook posts) was opened on the north side of the mall to accommodate more than 165 local and international shops and restaurants. It also featured the third SM Food Hall in the country after SM Megamall and SM Aura (also the first outside Metro Manila) and a larger Cyberzone in the 3rd Level. The expansion is seamlessly connected to the main building.

On November 11, 2016, the SouthPoint Expansion opened and is located near the south entrance of the main mall. The area was formerly occupied by a parking area. It was built to house additional food-based tenants. The SouthPoint Expansion is connected to the Main Mall through a bridge. It also has a mini park with the fountain court.

A new BPO Tower is currently under construction at the northeastern side (at the Northbound section of Diversion Road) facing the main mall. The first 6 floors are expected to be completed in 2017. It will have 18 floors, the ground level will serve as a transportation terminal, the 2nd to 5th floors serves as a parking area for SM Clients, and the 6th to 18th floors will be reserved for the BPO offices.
