It was reported in 2008 that SM Prime Holdings, the Philippines' largest shopping mall and retail operator, was interested in developing a shopping mall in General Santos City. Rival developer Robinsons Land had started construction on a ₱1 trillion (US$75.2 billion) shopping mall set to open in 2009, challenging long-established malls Gaisano and KCC Mall.
In September 2011, four construction workers working on the mall were injured when a portion of the third floor collapsed as the workers were pouring wet cement. The floor crashed down to the second floor, pinning the workers below. The workers were confined in a local hospital for treatment.
Another construction accident occurred in December 2011, when a platform collapsed as construction workers were installing insulators on the ceiling of the third floor. The workers, who were not wearing safety belts, fell to the concrete floor, resulting in seven workers sustaining varying degrees of injury. The victims were employees of Irvine Construction, one of the construction firms hired by SM Prime Holdings to build the mall.
SM City General Santos opened on August 10, 2012. At the time of its opening, it was 80% occupied.
