With economic headwinds creating uncertainties in the short term, people are looking for safe and sustainable investments. Today’s Philippine property developers are bringing master-planned and well-thought of living spaces that offer this viable option.
In the area of safe and sustainable spaces, SM Development Corp. (SMDC) looks at this holistic approach across its residential portfolio.
“We focus on creating value for our stakeholders, especially our residents, by offering them an upgraded lifestyle choice that allows them to live, work, and play in our residential developments,” says SMDC president Jose Mari Banzon.
As part of SM Prime Holdings (SM Prime), SMDC is committed to developing safe and greener spaces that are attuned to investors and residents. This means, an investment in SMDC gives investors and homeowners access to living spaces that are safe, luxurious, convenient, and top-notch quality residential developments.
More than functionality, proximity to SM Prime’s office developments and mall complexes provides an advantage for SMDC residents. Currently, SMDC has more than 60 established properties across Metro Manila and other key cities in the Philippines.
Anchored on green living
SMDC puts great importance on the environmental sustainability of its communities. Its development features “green living,” such as garden areas, footpaths, cycling lanes, and other natural elements incorporated into its sustainable and resilient master plans.
Upgraded lifestyle and sustainable living at SMDC
SMDC’s development, the Mint Residences in Makati City and Park Residences in Sta. Rosa City epitomize the company’s environmental sustainability.
With Mint Residences being developed in one of the major and most dynamic central business districts in Metro Manila, the award-winning developer included a biophilic design to bring vertical living closer to natural elements.
At the center of the emerging Sta. Rosa City is a lush SMDC property called Park Residences. Inspired by New York City’s most influential Central Park, it’s designed with open spaces to cater to residents’ active lifestyles. But on top of its swimming pools, a basketball court, and a central garden, its salient feature is its disaster resilient measures like a water catchment facility and detention pond that prevent further flooding in the area.
The gold standard in premium township development
In the spotlight of SMDC’s vast portfolio are two luxurious properties in Parañaque City, situated across NAIA Terminal 1. Aptly called the Gold City, the 11.6-hectare world-class township features the Gold Residences and Gold Residential-Offices (ResO) which brings a convergence of modernization, dynamism, innovation, and prestige to this development.
2022 and beyond: The right investment
The increasing demand for residential properties and developers makes the real estate industry a tough market. So, what makes SMDC the right choice of investment this 2022? It’s already an established company that keeps on delivering its brand promise. It champions integrated commercial and residential environments, resulting in an accessible and sustainable cosmopolitan lifestyle dreamed of by every Filipino or any discerning investor today.
SMDC has been a recipient of PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards’ most coveted annual award twice in a row: Developer of the Year 2020 and 2021 – a true testament to its hard work, commitment, and innovation in sustainable designs.
