SM Mall of Asia (also abbreviated as SM MoA, or simply Mall of Asia or MoA; [ˈmoː.ɐ]), is a large shopping mall in the Philippines, located at Bay City, Pasay, Philippines, within the SM Central Business Park, a reclaimed area within Manila Bay, and the southern end of Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA/C-4).

Owned and developed by SM Prime, the largest mall chain owner and developer in the Philippines, the mall currently occupies 16 hectares (40 acres) of land area of the Mall of Asia Complex and a gross floor area of approximately 589,891 m2 (6,349,530 sq ft), and offers 46,647 m2 (502,100 sq ft) of floor area space for conventions and social functions.[2] The area attracts a daily average foot traffic of about 200,000 people.[3]

The mall is currently the largest shopping mall in the Philippines and the sixth in the world.[3] When it opened in 2006, it was the largest shopping mall in the Philippines until SM North EDSA was redeveloped in 2008,[4] and was relegated to third place by the expansion of SM Megamall from 2011 to 2015 when SM Seaside City opened to the public before returning to this spot in 2017.[5][6] Later, it again became the largest shopping mall in the Philippines starting 2021, following the opening of IKEA Pasay City, the first IKEA store in the country and the largest IKEA store in the world, at the mall's complex.

Following the mall's opening in 2006, it caused several smaller shopping malls nearby to close, such as the Pearl Plaza and the Uniwide Coastal Mall, both located in Barangay Tambo, Parañaque. However, this is changing with the rise of other malls and similar structures such as the Ayala Malls Manila Bay and W Mall.


SM Mall of Asia during its earlier years, October 2007

Plans for SM Mall of Asia began in 1995,[7] with construction originally slated to begin in January 1996; it was marketed to become the largest shopping mall in the world upon completion.[8]

The mall is the centerpiece project of SM Prime at the SM Central Business Park, where five one-story buildings serve as the company's corporate offices, while the sixth building is being occupied by TeleTech Holdings, Inc. as their flagship site in the country.

The SM Mall of Asia's design team includes Arquitectonica as the projects design architect and Architect Robert Carag Ong, Architect of Record, and GHT Services as the complex's project managers. SM tapped two separate construction firms for the construction of the mall: Hilmarc's Construction Corp. for the South Parking Building, Main Mall, and Entertainment Mall; and Monolith Construction Development Corp. for the North Parking Building.[citation needed] The mall would have opened before Christmas Day of 2005 but had been delayed due to hitches in the delivery of construction materials. Frequent rains in the last quarter of 2005 also delayed the turnover of mall space to tenants. Due to these circumstances, SM Prime decided to move the opening date to March 3, 2006.[citation needed]

On February 27, 2006, the local newspaper Manila Standard Today reported that a team of Pasay City engineers found huge cracks underneath the structure, which was causing the structure to vibrate.[9] When questioned about the inspection, the Pasay City Engineering Department denied making any statement regarding defects in the Mall of Asia. Engineer Edwin Javaluyas, Pasay City Engineering Officer, in his letter to SM Prime Holdings Inc., said he never stated that the city hall's engineering department inspected the Mall of Asia on February 23, 2006.[10]

SM Prime, however, decided to move the opening to May 21 of that year. Jeffrey Lim, corporate information officer of SM Prime, emphasized that a rescheduling of the mall's opening was made to give the company an opportunity to allow more tenants to open shops and denied that the change was due to structural defects.[11]

The mall was officially inaugurated by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo with a special screening of Everest at the San Miguel Coca-Cola IMAX Theater. The movie was shown three days after Philippine triathlete Leo Oracion reached the summit of Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain.[12]

The Mall of Asia consists of four buildings interconnected by walkways and elevated pathways: the Main Mall, the Entertainment Mall, and the North and South Wing Parking Buildings.

The Main Mall includes numerous shopping and dining establishments and the food court. The Entertainment Mall is a two-story complex, most of which is open-air, and also features some shopping and dining businesses. The Entertainment Mall also hosts the Music Hall, an events hall (formerly open-air, now airconditioned) facing Manila Bay. As of late 2021, majority of the area has been renovated with addition of air-conditioning. Due to the mall's size, all buildings have concierge desks, assisting local information within the area.[13]

The mall's 5,000 parking spaces are divided across two, six-story parking buildings conveniently designated the North and South Parking Buildings, which have been covered with a solar rooftop. The South Parking Building houses the mall's official The SM Store, while the mall's supermarket, the SM Hypermarket is located at the North Parking Building. Since 2016, these parking buildings are equipped with elevators and escalators, which allow fast access to parking levels.

Since its opening in 2006, visitors to the mall have been welcomed by large steel framed globe on a roundabout at the southern tip of Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA), known as the MoA Globe. In 2009, the globe was turned into Globamaze, an LED display.[14]

MOA globe publicity stunt[edit]

On November 13, 2021, the iconic globe was reportedly stolen by a helicopter that was recorded by a delivery rider at 11:00 p.m. on the previous day.[15][16]

The Pasay City police issued a statement that the globe was not stolen and was just "undergoing maintenance for marketing strategy".[17] The globe was covered in scaffolding.[18] The mall management released a statement a day later that the globe is "back" and revealed that the supposed theft was staged as part of a publicity stunt to promote the Netflix film, Red Notice.[19] The marketing promotion caused the globe to be a trending subject on Twitter including internet memes with scenes from the animated film Despicable Me (2010), the Netflix survival drama series Squid Game, and the music video of Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus.[18][20]

The mall includes branches of all of the standard anchor stores found in most of the SM Supermalls. The first-ever branch of Taste Asia, one of the SM Supermalls' food court brands, is located right outside the mall's supermarket, the sprawling SM Hypermarket.[21]

The mall's open-air Music Hall directly facing Manila Bay has also held numerous events, contests, and concerts since the mall's opening in 2006.[22]

The mall also provides office space. Dell International Services, a subsidiary of Dell, Inc. once occupied a 13,470 m2 (145,000 sq ft) area at the second floor of the North Parking Building of the mall. Eventually, in 2015, Teleperformance took over that space until 2019, as the company moved its operations to the MOA Annex Building. Currently, the site has been replaced by the mall anchor Cyberzone for IT-related shops, one of the biggest Cyberzones in the country since the opening of SM North EDSA.

MoA Food Hall[edit]

Opened on February 12, 2020, the new Food Hall is located in the 3rd Level, across SM Skating Rink at the main mall. Replacing the former SM Food Court at the second floor, it features budget to upscale dining choices.

SM Game Park[edit]

A replacement of SM Bowling Center, the flagship branch of SM Game Park is located on a 1,947-square-meter (20,960 sq ft) space at the 3rd Level of the South Entertainment Mall. It was opened in November 2023, after delays. Similar to its branch in SM Southmall and SM City Fairview, it features bowling, billiards, other sports facilities, a mini-arcade, KTV, and a sports bar.[23][24]

SM Skating Rink[edit]

The former ice skating rink on the ground floor of the main mall

The mall features the Philippines' first Olympic-sized ice skating rink which is located on the third level of the mall's main building. It covers an area of 1,800 square meters (19,000 sq ft) and has a spectators area which can seat up to 200 people and accommodate up to 300 people.[25]

An older ice skating rink was one of the main features of the SM Mall of Asia at the time of its inauguration in 2006, which was situated at the ground level of the mall's main building.[26] Its opening followed the closure of the old skating rink at the SM Megamall which was built in 1992. On 2015, the skating rink made a comeback and eventually opened at the SM Megamall,[27] and during the mall's renovation works, the skating rink was temporarily moved from 2015–2017 to the open area lot between the SMX Convention Center Manila and the MOA Arena, which is currently occupied by MOA Square.[28] The new skating rink, located at the 3rd floor, was opened in 2017.[25]

Several ice skating competitions have been held at the mall's ice skating rink such as the Skate Asia 2007, the first time an international competition at that scale was held in the Philippines.[29][30] The ice hockey competition of the 2019 Southeast Asian Games was also held in the venue.

SM Cinema[edit]

The mall features a total of 16 cinemas with 11 regular cinemas (including Center Stage Cinema), three Director's Club Cinemas, one Event Cinema, and one IMAX Theater.[31] It originally featured a total of 10 cinemas, with six regular cinemas, Director's Club Cinema for intimate screenings (30 La-Z-Boy seats), Premier Cinema, CenterStage which can use for live musical concerts and theatrical performances, and an IMAX theater.


One of the mall's main attractions is the first ever and the largest IMAX theater in the Philippines. Originally with the naming rights of San Miguel-Coca-Cola, IMAX Theatre is one of the world's biggest IMAX screens in 3D including 2D screenings. It was originally a traditional film projector that uses its 15/70 mm film format, IMAX GT (Grand Theatre). The IMAX Theater was closed on October 11, 2013, for digital conversion,[32] and re-opened on October 30, 2013, along with the release of Thor: The Dark World.[33] On November 6, 2014, the old traditional 70mm IMAX projector was used for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar.[34] In July 2017, the main lobby was temporarily closed for renovation (where the XD Cinema is going to be demolished), and its lobby was temporarily moved at the second floor in front of Cinemas 7 and 8, the main lobby re-opened on December 11, 2018, upon the launch of Event Cinema and the Asian premiere screening of Aquaman where its star Jason Momoa has arrived in the country;[35] however, its temporary lobby is closed being used as offices for cinema personnel and as an emergency fire exit. On August 18, 2019, the IMAX Theater was closed for renovation and re-opened on October 29, 2019, with updated interiors and high-end spectator seats with comfortable Paragon 918 chairs from world-class spectator seats manufacturer Ferco Seating. The IMAX re-opened on May 4, 2022, along with the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Expansion and redevelopment[edit]

Additional cinemas were opened in the mall since 2016. Two digital theaters, Cinemas 7 and 8, were opened at the north side of the entertainment mall in December 2016. The Event Cinema was opened on December 12, 2018, and located at the newly renovated IMAX theater lobby,[36] which can be used for birthday parties, corporate events, and seminars, and it can house up to 45 people.

The former space of the Director's Club Cinema is now occupied by Surplus Shop.

As part of the mall's continuing expansion in the North Wing, the original cinemas including the centerstage were temporarily closed. Cinemas 7 and 8 were permanently closed and will be converted to tenant spaces.

Mall expansion and redevelopments[edit]

The SM Mall of Asia is undergoing a 1.5 billion expansion project since 2014, featuring new expansion areas for retail establishments and new indoor and outdoor amenities, including a football field and the installation of roof solar panels at the mall.[40]

It is built in phases. The first phase features the new Olympic-sized ice skating rink and a Food Hall (replacing the old Foodcourt) on the 3rd Floor along with more new shops and restaurants.[41] Both of the new features, the mall's ice skating rink and most recently, the Food Hall, were completed in 2017 and February 2020, respectively. As of October 2023, a portion of the North Main Atrium, which will soon connect to the rest of the mall, has reopened, as well as the Sky Garden.[42] Works in the North Main Mall and Entertainment Mall sections are ongoing as of January 2024.
