Jaro’s historic charm welcomes SMDC’s newest residences

Jaro, Iloilo—a colorful and historic district with a rich past. It is the biggest among the seven districts of Iloilo City. Jaro’s economy is thriving at present due to increased investments in retail and real estate, one of the reasons why it’s the perfect time to invest in Jaro and to build a home where you can live your dream.

SM Development Corporation (SMDC) is one of the organizations behind the economic boom that Iloilo is currently experiencing, and one of their developments in the province is Glade Residences. Located beside the soon-to-rise SM City Jaro, Glade Residences brings modern comforts into the traditional and natural setting of Jaro district. It is an integrated residential complex that can serve as the perfect home for young families looking for a safe community amidst a fresh and relaxing environment.

There is also an outdoor gym, a playpark, a community hub that is just the right spot for any resident’s home-based work and business, and plenty of lush open spaces for leisurely walks or power runs.
