SM Lanang Premier: Davao's Newest Shopping Destination

SM Lanang Premier

I am proud to say that I am born and raised here in the City of Davao, a city where peace and harmony exist amidst the developments of the city. Davao City may be a very big metropolis in terms of land area, but one wouldn't feel that it's really big. To answer that minor predicament, SM Prime decided to put up its second SM Mall in Davao, catering the needs and wants of every Davaoeños.

Now, it's about time to bring all those good things here in Davao!

It is not your ordinary mall. 

It sits in a strategic location in the northern part of Metro Davao, an area long been known as an affluent residential, commercial and leisure address in the City. With a gross leasable area of 144,002 square meters nestled in a 10-ha property, SM Lanang Premier will house first in Mindanao state-of-the-art amenities such as the IMAX Theatre, SM Center Stage and the Skygarden (like the one in SM North EDSA, Quezon City). Also making a landmark is the country's longest dancing fountain with 122-meter stretch of water jets. Now, isn't that fantastic?

Those who love to shop clothes and accessories would be delighted as the American chain of trendy clothing and accessory retailer Forever21 opens its doors to public. Kids, kids at heart and geeks will definitely love SM Lanang Premier as the it brings Science Discovery Center and SM Bowling Center here in Davao.

There is also a big possibility that concerts of both local and foreign artists will be held here in the near future as the mall will have no less than the Davao SMX Convention Center at its 3rd floor. To complement the facility, Park Inn Hotel by Radisson will be operational in 2013. The hotel buildling is located in the compound and offers convenient acces to the mall through a bridgeway.

And the best part of the mall? It is environmental friendly. The mall has its own rain-catchment system that will be utilized for the airconditioning process of the mall and as well as for flushing the toilets. More so, the mall uses LED and CFL lights. Brighter rooms, less consumed energy.

SM Lanang Premier promises to bring to Davao a definitive shopping experience of a permier SM mall offering luxury within reach with its choice retail brands and dining concepts. Its world class entertainment and convention facilities raise the bar in the "malling" league not only in Davao City but to the rest of the region as well.

Now, Davao feels bigger and bolder with SM Lanang Premier!

Catch the grand opening of the mall this September 28!

  6. The area is massive. Feels like SM North and MOA just located in Davao. The biggest city deserves to have one of the biggest mall.

  7. I am so excited for you guys there in Davao.. As made comparison to SM North Edsa (the one I'm nearest to), the only feature lacking would have to be the dancing fountain.. now I'm envious! :)) Nonetheless, I'm sure Davaoenos will enjoy this new mall. :)
