It was quite sunny last September 12, 2011, Monday when SM City General Santos finally opened to the public the widened and much-improved San Miguel Street, weeks after GenSan News Online Mag first blogged about it here. Click here to read it.
San Miguel is the street which runs parallel to the frontage of what will soon be the biggest mall in South Central Mindanao.
Both GenSan City Mayor Darlene Antonino-Custodio and Representative Jun Acharon of the First District of South Cotabato led the ceremonies, officially opening the two lane road with a middle island to motorists. They were assisted by Mr. Hans Sy, eldest son of SM taipan Henry Sy and is currently the President of SM Prime Holdings.
The inauguration of San Miguel Street was also the occasion for media personnel from Davao City and GenSan to field Mr. Hans Sy with questions pertaining to their foray into South Central Mindanao. When asked with the question, “Why GenSan?”, Mr. Sy answered, “Because this city has a local government which is very consistent and strict with its policies and we like working with them. We will be here for the long haul.”
A new SM GenSan perspective was also unveiled to the public. Check it out below. Click on the image for a larger view.
Thanks to their staff for emailing us with this updated SM GenSan perspective.
