SMDC hits a home run in 2021

It was a victorious year for SMDC for 2021 with the Sy-owned property developer reaping the fruits of its labor from two prestigious award-giving bodies.

From the 9th PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards held last month, SMDC bagged a total of 11 awards.

SMDC bagged the Best Developer (Philippines) for the second straight year, and Best Mid Rise Condo Development (Philippines) for Gold Residences.

Alongside winning Best Developer, SMDC also secured the all-new Best Developer (Luzon) Award as well as being a two-time winner for the Best Lifestyle Developer Award in recognition of the company’s efforts to offer additional facilities across all developments made to enhance the living experience of residents. 

In the Development category, Gold City – SMDC’s pioneer township development in Parañaque City, is the winner of the Best Mixed Use Development Award. Gold Residences won the Best High End Condo Development (Metro Manila) and Best Lifestyle Development awards. Vine Residences won the Best Upper Affordable Condo Development (Metro Manila) Award, while Green 2 Residences earned the award for Best High End Condo Development (Southern Luzon).

Many other SMDC projects were highly commended across several Development categories: Best High End Condo Development for Metro Manila (Sail Residences), Best Upper Mid End Condo for Metro Manila (Light 2 Residences, Shore 3 Residences), Best Upper Affordable Condo Development for Metro Manila (Bloom Residences, Charm Residences), Best Affordable Condo Development (Hill Residences), Best Condo Development for Metro Davao (Lane Residences), Best Condo Development for Central Luzon (Cheer Residences), and Best Condo Development for Visayas (Smile Residences, Style Residences).

Gold Residences also won in the Design category, earning the title of Best Landscape Architectural Design as well as commendations for the Best Condo Architectural Design and Best Condo Interior Design Awards. Light 2 Residences (Best Condo Architectural Design) and Vine Residences (Best Landscape Architectural Design) were also among the developments highly commended by the awarding body.

SMDC was also among the winners of the Special Recognition in Sustainable Design and Construction – an award given to developers whose projects utilize environmentally-friendly design features, low-impact material selection, and are assessed to be durably designed and capable of withstanding various lifecycles.

The DOT Philippines Property Awards, meanwhile, accorded SMDC with eight coveted awards, including Best Developer Metro Manila and Best Developer Visayas.

SMDC also won the Best Development / Investment Property for Metro Manila for its Bloom Residences in Parañaque;  Best Development /Affordable Condo for its Charm Residences in Cainta and  Best Development / Investment Property for its Bacolod Smile Residences.

Another development, Green 2 Residences in Cavite won Best Design/ Condo Interior while Vine Residences in Novaliches won Best Development/ Lifestyle Condominium.

In all, these victories of SMDC may also be viewed as victories for the Filipino because awards and recognitions such as these push SMDC to offer even better projects and to continuously drive the company’s vision to making luxurious urban living more affordable – enabling more Filipinos access to a truly cosmopolitan lifestyle.

“For our efforts to be recognized by esteemed organizations such as PropertyGuru and DOT Philippines is indeed something we at SMDC can truly be proud of,” SMDC President Jose Mari Banzon said.

“While these wins certainly validate the collective work we have done to realize the vision of our company founders, ultimately, they fuel our drive towards the creation of a nation of homeowners where each and every Filipino can live their best lives,” he added.
