Looks like they got rid of the Hotel/Condo tower (compared from previous renders), there is no official announcement/source yet available if they cancelled it or if it's just not including in this latest render.

A linking bridge to a newly added building (probably the museum/civic center) is seen. This could mean that SM have recently acquired that lot as compared from previous renders.

We can also see that they have updated the River side with pathways, additional foot bridges are also seen crossing the river.

Yep, that's what it seems.
Right now they're expanding the first SM Olongapo, seems like they finally acquired the land beside it. Pile drivers, construction cranes are in place and they have started digging holes for the foundation.

Just like SM Center Molino, there were no proofs or press releases in regards to mall expansion. Anyway, yung bagong SM gaano siya kalayo sa SM City Olongapo?

very nice project! resembles aura civic center. great time to invest in olongapo/subic, it will push also ayala to do more bpo/residential projects which is missing in the area thus bringing also the A-B demographics of costumers. this one i think will house more premier brands/shops and the existing one will house basic needs. any idea of the GLA?

as of last night, the sm olongapo expansion.. based on what i have observed in past years in different sm malls, i think this area either will house a cyberzone or relocate their department store in this area then free up big existing spaces for lease.. After this they will start the sm olongapo 2 construction.

Here are some photo updates about what's going on around the development area.

They have moth-balled the trees, fenced the area and has just recently begun demolishing the existing Olongapo City Convention Center.

Gordon College will be demolished soon in this area, and right now SM is on full-swing for the construction of the new 7-Storey school building located inside the East Tapinac Sports Complex.

Here are some photos of the development, should we make a new thread about it?

I found this story about 50 years of Olongapo (of being a city I guess?), which mentioned SM2 as well: http://subicupdater.com/a-challengin...-for-olongapo/

Quote:
A challenging future for Olongapo
...Mayor Paulino needs to be creative to dig his way out of this financial crisis that his predecessor left. And his first step shows promise. He delivered the SM2 project. The lease of the convention center complex is a big winner on four fronts; (1) it saved the city tens of millions in repairs and renovation costs of several facilities, while at the same time virtually constructing newly constructing new ones, like the new Gordon College and K12 Department of Education building; (2) the SM 2 complex will generate recurring income for the city, bring in large new tax base, and generate even more due to its economic multiplier effect; (3) establish the city as a desirable place to invest capital with SM as an anchor investment of P3 billion, ten times more than its original investment at the main gate of about P300 million; and lastly, (4) create more job opportunities for local residents. ...

Thanks for the info! I never knew SM invested such a huge amount for these projects.

By the way, here's the latest photo of the new Gordon College Building. Classes will start on August.

As of August 1, the new 6-storey building (worth Php 300 Million) has been turned over by SM Primeholdings to the City of Olongapo for use by Gordon College.

This completes one part of it's various community developments and commercial projects outlined in this original thread post.
