For many young people, going to college is the ultimate experience that they will ever have. It is a time for self-discovery on an entirely new environment. For some of them, the prospect of being independent and enjoying the freedom that it brings is exciting. And then reality sets in, followed by stress and anxiety. College is far more challenging than they have ever expected. There are exams that they have to pass, professors to please, and theses and projects that they have to work on until the wee hours of the night — sometimes in coffee shops and Internet cafes. This leaves parents worried for the safety of their children, and with an approximate 700 beds of formal dormitory set up, student housing options insufficient to cater to the demand within the area.
Luckily, SM Development Corp. (SMDC) has the solution with Green 2 Residences. Green 2 Residences is located in Dasmariñas, Cavite, home to three of the province’s most populous universities — De La Salle University Dasmariñas, De La Salle Health Sciences Institute, and Emilio Aguinaldo College Cavite. When combined, these three have a population of more than 20,000 students and some originate from Cavite, Batangas and Laguna.
Over the years, SMDC has proven that it can serve niche markets — including students and members of the academe — with projects that offer quality residences with elements that are necessary to create an environment that is conducive to learning, as well as for relaxing and unwinding. It houses amenities such as a WiFi-ready study area, gym, swimming pools, multi-purpose lawns, a function room, a covered porch, and lounge for students to relax in. The residential project also has a strip of retail shops that are targeted to provide all the necessary conveniences need to achieve the ideal student living, without leaving the building.
Parents can choose to invest either in a studio unit or a two-bedroom unit. With the growing student market in the province, Green 2 is ideal for both end users and property investors. Once their children graduate, parents can lease the units to students looking for alternatives to dormitories and room rentals in the area, or to faculty members looking for spaces to rent for the convenience of living in close proximity to the schools they teach.
And to enable unit owners increase the return of their investments, SMDC will help them through SMDC Leasing.
Not only has SMDC provided the ideal student living, but through their quality customer service, they have maintained to be a viable investment that have shown significant growth in value through the years.
