History

As early as 2008, SM Prime Holdings was planning to open SM Supercenter San Pablo (a downsized SM mall, originally) but this was shot down due to political pressures. After several attempts to build a similar establishment, SM Prime Holdings was given its go signal in July 2008 to push ahead for SM Supercenter San Pablo[6][failed verification] located at Riverina Residential and Commercial Estates along Maharlika Highway at Brgy San Rafael.

It was expected to be completed in August 2010, but due to strategic location and growing demands for commercial establishments in San Pablo, it was upgraded into SM City San Pablo last April 28, 2010.[7][failed verification]

The mall opened on October 1, 2010.[8] The cinema commenced operations on December 3, 2010 before the 36th Metro Manila Film Festival.
