SM Cen­ter Tugue­garao opens doors to the public

Business World - - BULLETINS -

SM brings great shop­ping, leisure, and en­ter­tain­ment up north as SM Cen­ter Tugue­garao opened its doors to the public yes­ter­day. It is SM Prime Hold­ing’s 65th mall and the first in the prov­ince of Ca­gayan.

The prov­ince of Ca­gayan stands out as a tourist des­ti­na­tion with its pic­turesque moun­tains, bird sanc­tu­ar­ies, lime­stone caves, flu­vial at­trac­tions, mu­se­ums and land­marks and cen­turies old churches.

Tugue­garao City, the cap­i­tal of the prov­ince of Ca­gayan and the re­gional cen­ter of the Ca­gayan Val­ley, is a ma­jor ur­ban cen­ter in North­east­ern Lu­zon and a Pri­mary Growth Cen­ter. The city’s strate­gic lo­ca­tion is per­fect for busi­ness ven­tures and op­por­tu­ni­ties, and is trans­form­ing stan­dards in in­fra­struc­ture to be­come the gate­way to Ilo­can­dia and the Cordilleras.

Strate­gi­cally lo­cated in a 16,000 -square me­ter site in Luna cor­ner Mabini Street, SM Cen­ter Tugue­garao will serve cus­tomers in this rapidly grow­ing city, as well as the rest of Ca­gayan Prov­ince.

The 33,000-square me­ter mall cre­ates a unique iden­tity in the bustling down­town area. A rhyth­mic blue fa­cade en­er­gizes the main thor­ough­fare while clean white walls de­lin­eate the main en­trances and dra­matic lin­ear over­hangs stretch along the well tra­versed Luna Street.

The mall’s in­te­ri­ors are or­ga­nized around an ef­fi­cient “T” shaped plan that al­lows a clear line-of-sight to mul­ti­ple shops on mul­ti­ple lev­els at all times. Strate­gi­cally placed spa­cious open­ings, as well as sleek es­ca­la­tors and a cen­trally lo­cated el­e­va­tor and stars, pro­vide for op­ti­mal cus­tomer con­ve­nience and ac­cess to all por­tions of the mall.

SM Cen­ter Tugue­garao’s in­te­ri­ors are dis­tinctly crisp and mod­ern with re­lax­ing col­ors that give one the sense of strolling down a boule­vard on a cool, re­fresh­ing day. The metal and glass store­fronts fea­ture clean, crisp ar­chi­tec­tural lines, while the walls are painted a light sky blue, in­tended to lead the eye to­wards the fo­cal point of the in­te­ri­ors, the geo­met­ric ceil­ing.

These dis­tinc­tive shapes are out­line with cove light­ing to dis­play these unique ac­cent el­e­ments inset with the same cool blue. The in­spired ir­reg­u­lar poly­gons in the ceil­ing are sub­tly echoed within the floor pat­ter and the in­te­rior sig­nage. The dra­matic, con­tin­u­ous clerestory brings in am­ple nat­u­ral day­light through­out the fa­cil­ity, which adds to the gra­cious and spa­cious shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence in the mall.

So­lar pan­els have also been in­stalled at SM Cen­ter Tugue­garao in line with the com­pany’s sus­tain­abil­ity efforts.

SM Hyper­mar­ket is the mall’s ma­jor an­chor along with other SM main­stays: SM Ap­pli­ance Cen­ter, Sim­ply Shoes, Wat­sons, Min­iso, ACE Hard­ware, Sur­plus, World Balance and BDO.
