History

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.[3][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, used to occupy the entire 3rd level of the mall (not including the expansion wing) until 2021.

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 and a larger Cyberzone in the 3rd Level. The expansion is seamlessly connected to the main building.

On November 11, 2016, the SouthPoint Expansion with a floor area of 24,854.93 m2 (267,536.2 sq ft) 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.

SM Strata BPO Tower

SM Strata, a BPO tower and parking garage, is located at the northeastern side (at the Northbound section of Diversion Road) facing the main mall. The first 6 parking levels were opened on November 11, 2017, with a connection from the footbridge in the 2nd floor.[4] 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. It also hosts the first Telus International Philippines contact center outside Metro Manila, along with Teletech (which relocated from the 3rd Level of the mall) and Legato Technologies. The building has a GFA of 45,000 sqm.
