SM City San Mateo is a shopping mall owned by the largest mall developer in the Philippines, SM Prime Holdings. It is located along Gen. Luna Avenue, Brgy. Ampid 1, San Mateo, Rizal. This first major mall of San Mateo opens on May 15, 2015, being the fourth SM Supermall in Rizal Province after SM City Taytay, SM City Masinag and SM Center Angono,[3] and the 52nd SM Supermall in the country. The mall is designed by JRP Design Inc., a local architectural design firm in Ayala Alabang, Muntinlupa and DSGN associates, a firm based in Dallas, Texas, United States, which also designed SM City Marikina.

The mall has a gross floor area (GFA) of 80,043 m2 (861,580 sq ft)[1] situated on 22,882 m2 (246,300 sq ft) of land.

Planning

The 2011 SM Investments Corporation's annual report initially gives hints to the upcoming SM Supermall in San Mateo which is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Rizal province. San Mateo is selected by SM Prime Holdings to build an SM City to stay ahead with competition by addressing the continued greater demand of convenience and accessibility of its customers for city neighborhoods and fast growing provincial cities.[4]

Construction

Site clearing began in May 2013 then a public consultation led by SM representatives was conducted in June 2013 for residents of Brgy. Ampid 1. Full blast construction started in December 2013 having DDT Konstract, Inc. as SM City San Mateo's general contractor wherein SM Investments Corporation is one of its clients.[5] SM City San Mateo's topping-off ceremony which marks its structural completion is held on October 10, 2014 while its tenant preview is conducted on February 26, 2015.

Location

SM City San Mateo is located northbound along a two-lane national road, Gen. Luna Avenue, in Brgy. Ampid 1, San Mateo, Rizal, which connects J.P. Rizal Road of Marikina in Metro Manila from the south and Mabini Road of Rodriguez also in Rizal Province to the north. Its location is strategically planned such that the mall serves over 640,000[2] residents coming from San Mateo and Rodriguez; northern Barangays of Marikina nearest to San Mateo - Brgy. Nangka, Tumana, Malanday, Concepcion Uno, Parang, and Fortune; and among the most populated Barangays in the eastern district of Quezon City - Brgy. Batasan Hills, Payatas, parts of Bagong Silangan, Commonwealth, Holy Spirit, and Matandang Balara, which the latter Barangays have access coming from Commonwealth Avenue and Batasan Road connecting through Batasan-San Mateo Road (direct access of origin for Brgy. Batasan Hills) from west intersecting with Gen. Luna Avenue to the east.

A fraction of the mall site was the former site of a school named Eastern Star Academy which has then transferred to Brgy. Sta. Ana beside ICCT Colleges San Mateo Campus. The mall is near its competitors like Puregold San Mateo and BudgetLane SulitMarket which are both located along Gen. Luna Avenue.

Mall Features

SM City San Mateo has a total of 4 levels which the first 3 levels are for shopping, dining, entertainment, and services. The last level offers office spaces for Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) sector. It also includes 180 shopping units, 4 digital movie theaters with a total seating capacity of 1,240 and a 6-level car park with a total of 430 parking slots.[2]
