Living a full life was once upon a time exclusive to the affluent in the big city and a far-fetched dream of the working class, especially those residing in the outskirts.
This was until SM Development Corporation (SMDC) reimagined and revolutionized condominium-living. Each development has been built with the surrounding community and future homeowners in mind.
In a span of only 14 years, SMDC has built 47 projects and turned over more than 70,000 units in major CBDs across the country. Many of which have been lauded by award-giving bodies and institutions.
Award-giving bodies have taken notice. At the PropertyGuru Philippines Awards held on November 25, SMDC received the highest accolade bestowed during the virtual ceremony — Best Developer. It also bagged the Best Lifestyle Developer Award. Various properties won five major awards in the design and development categories.
Staying true to its tropical theme inspiration, Sail Residences will be elevating the already-stunning bay area. It creatively incorporates details of a sailboat deck down to the tiniest to the grandest aspects of the design. The lobby showcases nautical sculptures and art pieces. The units’ glass balconies and three viewing platforms offer beautiful sights of Mall of Asia Complex and Manila Bay while mimicking a cruise ship experience.
On the ground, the amenity has a slight curvature. It follows the S-shaped layout of the pools. Its lush landscaping is a palette of tropical plants, shrubs and trees, perfectly framing the piece de resistance of the two-story clubhouse where the function rooms and fitness center are located.
FERN AT GRASS RESIDENCES
Best Lifestyle Development
Fern at Grass Residences is a stone’s throw away from SM City North EDSA complex, northerners’ favorite lifestyle district. Its location brings residents closer to more possibilities as it is accessible to main transport hubs and roads, such as the Grand Unified Station.
Giving a healthy work-life balance, it houses an exclusive clubhouse and sports and leisure amenities such as an Olympics-sized lap pool, indoor basketball and volleyball courts and two fitness centers.
Best Condo Development for Luzon
Park Residences, SMDC’s New York Central Park-inspired development, complements Sta. Rosa’s growth and transition from an automotive and consumer hub into a city that cultivates lifelong dreams of families.
It is located alongside SM City Sta. Rosa Lifestyle Complex, positioned to address the growing need for residential development in the area and provide unmatched convenience of future dwellers.
The modern contemporary mid-rise development alone caters to the needs of residents. At the heart of the Park Residences is a rock garden. It acts as a water retention pond, giving life to plants and trees that surround the project. It also has numerous lifestyle amenities to further its commitment to convenience, on top of the ease provided by its neighbor SM City Sta. Rosa.
Best Mid-End Condo Development
Charm Residences is strategically tucked away from the city’s hustle and bustle but remains a heartbeat away from business centers in Pasig and Mandaluyong and lifestyle hubs along C5.
It indeed charms the practical and aspirational senses of homebuyers as it exemplifies the features of complete mixed-use development, while in form, it cradles the intimacy of a tight-knit community.
