Completed in 2014 by leading mall developer SM Group under its real estate arm SM Prime, SM Aura is a mixed-used development, a combination of a mall and an office tower--that sits right at one of BGC's access points at 26th corner McKinley Parkway.
The building features a unique facade especially compared to the developer's usual box-type regular-shaped mall developments across the country. It was really designed to be a luxury mall to better match the community it is in which is the world-class lifestyle district of BGC-Bonifacio Global City.
SM Aura’s Office Tower is located at 4 McKinley Pkwy, Taguig. The building is just right across from the terminal hub of Bonifacio Global City within Market Market. The tower is also surrounded by different bus stops. It is only a 3-minute walk away from the bus stop at 26th Street/Mckinley Pkwy Intersection. Its location also makes it easy for tenants to book a Grab Car.
SM Aura’s Office Tower is close to a number of commercialized establishments; one being SM Aura Premier, as the Office is directly connected to it, another is Market Market.
Mixing an office tower and a retail mall is always a good idea as it instantly brings a lot of supporting service to the office occupiers. SM Aura Premier is home to a lot of shops including mid-to-high dining restaurants, cafes and bars. It is also home to flagship fashion brands such as Dior, Jo Malone, and Rolex to name a few. Other retailers include hardware stores, pharmacies, baking stores, baby essential stores, a department store and a supermarket that are both under SM’s brand.
In case of emergencies, the building is only a 7-minute drive away from St. Luke’s Medical Center in Global City, BGC Emergency Police and Fire Response is located along 5th and 26th which is approximately 3 minutes away from SM Aura.
The unique design of SM Aura was made by the well-known architect, Willy Coscolluela with the partnership of the Miami-based architectural firm, Arquitectonica. The building has a separate access located on the ground floor.
As well as a sky-garden that’s filled with beautiful greenery to reduce the heat island effect in the structure. It’s also important to note that, international green standards were taken into consideration to ensure the efficient use of energy and other resources.
SM Aura Office Tower has its own separate access point and drop-off area from the mall. From here you can access its ground floor reception lobby. There is also another reception lobby at the 6th floor for those who are accessing the office tower from the mall.
The 6th floor connection of the mall and the office tower is also where the Sky Park is located. It is a unique green feature of the development that spans the entire floor plate of the mall with a few selected cafes and restaurants.
