Cagayan de Oro, the Gateway to Northern Mindanao, is a gold mine of amazing and diverse attractions. Known as the City of Golden Friendship, it is a major whitewater rafting and adventure destination in the country, and called the ICT Goldmine in the Philippines because of its numerous ICT infrastructures and businesses. With its natural attractions, rich cultural heritage, and warm and friendly people, it is a multicultural urban center with a laid- back charm.
Residents in the City of Golden Friendship have more to smile about when SM CDO Downtown Premier opens its doors to the public on Friday, May 12, 2017. It is SM Prime Holding’s 61st mall, the sixth in Mindanao, and the second in Cagayan de Oro.
Located at the busy intersection of Claro M. Recto Avenue and Osmena Street, the five level, 177,743.21 square meter mall, will serve shoppers in Cagayan de Oro and nearby cities and provinces in the Northern Mindanao area. Envisioned as Cagayan de Oro’s premier shopping address, it is an emerging landmark in the bustling downtown area with five floors of retail, dining, and entertainment; and eight floors of prime office space in the future BPO tower, which will be integrated with the retail center.
SM CDO Downtown Premier brings a vibrant and upbeat retail experience for this urban market with exterior finishes that are subtle and upscale, primarily glass, metal, and natural colors that reflect the sophisticated nature of this center. A glass corner creates a striking entry and allows the center to glow with activity at night.
Interiors are also distinctly upscale with rich, subdued finishes enlivened by patterns of gray and accents of color. A diagonal pattern is reflected on the floors, ceilings, and in the skylight system to provide visual interest and variety. Daylighting and artificial lighting combine to create a variety of light effects that change with the time of day, weather, and seasons. Bold color is used as a visual accent on the escalators and inside faces of the skylight.
SM CDO Downtown Premier brings an uptown vibe to the downtown area with its eclectic mix of shopping, leisure, and entertainment. The SM Store and SM Supermarket are its major retail anchors, as well as SM mainstays like SM Appliance, Toy Kingdom, Our Home, Surplus, Sports Central and Pet Express. The mall will also have hundreds of stores –fashion boutiques, shoe stores, home stores, novelty stores, and more, including a Cyberzone for the tech generation, and a Wellness Center.
