History

The shopping center, together with the first class residential area which includes schools ,and churches, was planned during the early 1960s. The shopping center was made the area's centerpiece. In 1966, the shopping center plan materialized. It took two years of thoroughly studying the world's most advanced development projects for commercial establishment.

Architect Juan Nakpil presented the Greenhills Shopping Center design proposal which was suited to the country’s weather and environment situation. The proposed project included a movie theater, supermarket, bowling alley, store stalls and rooms, restaurants and service shops.

From the 1990s until the early 2000s, the shopping center experienced a decrease in sales and popularity due to its degenerating structure and facilities. Customers complained of dirty comfort rooms, stores and the like. People started to patronize other commercial establishments which resulted in the renovation and improvement plan of the management.

After years of redevelopment, the Greenhills Shopping Center made its comeback with new facilities such as a Muslim prayer room, music bars, additional movie theaters, a gym, additional stores and stalls and the placement of high-end stores in the Uni-mart section of the center.

Today, the Greenhills Shopping Center is one of the most visited shopping centers in Metro Manila. It is considered a one-stop-shop for the wants and needs of everyone from the the thrifty to the extravagant shopper.
