And, according to an insider:

- SM will start the construction of SM City Butuan by August or September.

- SM City Butuan will be a FOUR-STOREY structure.



What you need to know about SM City Butuan:

- Rumors broke out way back in 2010 regarding SM's coming in Butuan

- Press releases of an SM mall in Butuan have been in circulation as early as 2011. No less than the big man Mr. Hans Sy, President of SM Prime Holdings reiterated this over and over.

- SM has concluded the purchase of parcels of land in Brgy. Lapu-Lapu, JC Aquino Avenue.

- SM City Butuan will be like SM City GenSan.

- SM City Butuan will be a sprawling type of mall situated in two properties between the JC Aquino Avenue. The property beside Rosario's is estimated to be around 6 hectares while the opposite property is around 3~4 for a total of 9-10 hectares.

- Both properties are enclosed with GI sheets bearing the sign "NO TRESPASSING".

- Demolition works for establishments near these properties have started as early as late 2011. These establishments include the abandoned building of La Cocina de Caraga, Uncle Sam's, some machine repair shops, eateries, vulcanizing shops, etc.

- Terp Asia Construction Corporation (contractor of Robinsons Place Butuan) will also be the contractor according to the foreman of Robinsons Place Butuan who divulged/confirmed to BOB-bXu that his company won the bidding for the construction of SM City Butuan.

- SM is already on the process of securing important documents and permits from the local government of Butuan as of February 21, 2013. This was confirmed in a recent press briefing by Mr. Paul Cabrera, Head of the Business Permits and License Division (BPLS) of the City Hall.

- Last February 21, 2013, a female Tax Officer from the Corporate Tax Division of SM Investments, visited the City Assessor's Office at the City Hall. She personally handed over a hand-written letter with her calling card. The letter was requesting for four important (4) documents that will be used for studying the feasibility of SM's taxes to the City Government of Butuan.

- The tailoring shop near one of SM's properties has been demolished. Rosario's is rumored to transfer to its new location in front of Gaisano in a soon to rise four storey building.

- The construction of the Lawrence Ting building, which will house the new Rosario's Seafoods and Grill, in front of Gaisano Mall is about to commence. The property is enclosed with galvanized iron sheets and a bunkhouse is being set up.

- The back area (Pili Drive) of SM's property is enclosed with barb wires.

- SMIC's financial report dated December 31, 2012 stated that it has acquired 37,233 square meters of development property in Butuan.

Chronology updated above.

Now what are Geotechnical Investigations? According to Wikipedia, geotechnical investigations are performed by geotechnical engineers or engineering geologists to obtain information on the physical properties of soil and rock around a site to design earthworks and foundations for proposed structures and for repair of distress to earthworks and structures caused by subsurface conditions. This type of investigation is called a site.

Hi Skyscraper City peeps!

Just want to know if you guys have information about the Leasing Department for SM Butuan? If anyone knows the contact person or contact number, I'd really appreciate your help.

Thanks!

Wala pa. For now, imagination lang muna. Just imagine SM City Butuan to be like SM City GenSan pero 4 floors.

Sir gtrwizrd,

As of this writing, they are neither ready to accept leases nor do they have a leasing manager/department for SM City Butuan. SM City Butuan is still on planning stage but soil testing/clearing is ongoing at the site. Construction will commence by August or September and will open probably by Q4 2014. Leasing applications may only be accepted during the construction phase, and so are job applications.

You might want to consider Robinsons Place Butuan, which is set to open by December. It has some 200+ slots for tenants.
