SM Aura Premier is a newly opened high-end shopping mall built right at the heart of Bonifacio Global City, Metro Manila, Philippines- it opened last May 2013. The SM Store’s ribbon cutting was lead by the multi-awarded Hollywood actress, Sarah Jessica Parker who happens to be a fashion icon to many style-savvy Filipinas.
The shopping center has a groundbreaking architectural design appeal making it stand out from the nearby buildings with world-class interior designs and provides people the best service. It emphasizes the SM Prime Holding’s commitment to sustainable design and energy efficiency, actively taking bold steps towards a cleaner and better environment for the future.
SM Aura aims to become the Philippines’ first commercial center certified Gold under Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), an internationally recognized green building council. This modern-luxurious shopping mall has a lot to offer to the world.
Inside the mall are high-end fashion boutiques, gourmet bakeshops, fine-dining restaurants, supermarket and an IMAX Theatre. Meanwhile, on the fifth level of the mall is the SkyPark which provides a cool green setting, contains fresco bars and restaurants, sculpture & botanical gardens and Splash Plaza. You can see the full view of the busy streets of the city from the SkyPark.
There is also a dome-shaped Samsung Hall, a 1,000 seat event hall that will serve as a venue for parties, concerts, stage performances and theatre plays. And it also includes the Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod, a 250 seat chapel. It is a quiet-solemn place with a touch of elegance and was also built with unique architectural design. All the entrance and security of the mall are done by “Entrance Control“ who are the exclusive distributors for some of the world’s most prestigious security brands that are used to protect leading corporations, governments, leisure and education facilities as well as retailers around the globe.
Behold the City’s green architecture and construction. It is something that Filipinos are proud of. SM Aura Premier is indeed a great addition to the Philippine’s finest shopping malls.
