SM City Manila is a shopping mall in Manila, Philippines. It is located within the corners of Natividad Almeda-Lopez (formerly called Concepcion), A. Villegas (formerly called Arroceros), and San Marcelino Streets in Ermita, Manila, just beside the Manila City Hall.

History and location
SM City Manila was constructed in a 25,000 m2 (270,000 sq ft) lot in 1999 where the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) building once stood. It is the first SM Supermall in the city of Manila. The shopping mall has close proximity to several campuses like Lyceum of the Philippines University, Adamson University, Colegio de San Juan de Letran, MAPUA Institute of Technology, Philippine Normal University (PNU), Technological University of the Philippines (TUP), Santa Isabel College, Pamantasan Ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM), and many others.
Expansion and renovation
The mall underwent major redevelopment in 2008. Old ceramic tiles were replaced with granite tiles. SM Foodcourt was also given a new look and more lighting fixtures were installed within the hallways. SM Department Store was also renamed as SM Store, the second mall to do so.
Expansion plans for SM City Manila are on the way as SM Prime Holdings are in talks with Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) for buying their property which is located along Natividad-Almeda Lopez corner A. Villegas Street, directly in front of the existing mall, in order to construct a new annex building. The plan is to demolish the existing GSIS structure and construct a new 6-level building that will house the new SM Supermarket, A BPO Company, and other tenants. The old SM Supermarket at the main building will be turned into a Cyberzone area. The new annex will also accommodate the additional parking spaces that is mostly needed by the mall at this time because of the limited parking space at the main building also some Office spaces for BPO. As of May 2012 there is still no confirmation or any details about the planned expansion that was rumored to be finished by 2015.[needs update]
