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.[4][1] The mall features main anchors like The SM Store, SM Supermarket, SM Cinemas, SM Food Hall and SM Foodcourt. The mall underwent a major renovation in the second quarter of 2008 and was completed in the first quarter of 2009. TeleTech Customer Care Management Philippines Inc., a BPO company, used to occupy the entire Third Level of the mall (not including the expansion wing) until 2021. The former area is currently being renovated for conversion to tenant spaces, along with a new branch of SM Game Park.

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 Third 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.

The mall's Cinemas 1 to 4 were closed for renovation in 2022 and reopened on February 28, 2023, initially with three regular cinemas (including the Large Format Cinema under new Cinema 3). Director's Club 1 and 2 opened on April 22, 2023, while the new IMAX theater with a 4K laser projector system (located at the former Cinema 4) opened on November 15, 2023. The former Cinemas 5 to 8 will be converted into tenant spaces.

A new expansion with a National University campus is being prepared, and is set to be completed in 2027.

SM Strata BPO Twin Towers

SM Strata, a business process outsourcing (BPO) twin towers 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.[5] It has 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 that are reserved for BPO offices.
