Planning of SM City
The design of the shopping center is still being finalized but the source said it would more or less cater to the upper market because of its proximity to Ayala’s residential and commercial developments Serendra and Bonifacio High Street. Meanwhile, Ayala’s mall development Market! Market! mostly attracts low- to middle-income customers.
“We expect to complete the shopping center by 2011,” added the source privy to the negotiations.
The SM group’s expansion in Taguig, the source added, indicates its bullish outlook on the country’s fundamentals despite the challenges brought by the global financial crisis.
The Taguig property was part of the donation given by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority to the local government as its share in the Bonifacio Global City project.<ref>Madrilejos-Reyes, Honey.
