SM Development Corporation (SMDC) cemented itself as the best developer in the Philippines this year by taking home a trio of honours at the Dot Property Philippines Awards 2019 including the top achievement, Best Developer Philippines. Jose Mari Banzon and Jan Catherine Sy were just a few of the company’s representatives to attend the event.

The developer was also named Best Developer South Luzon and Best Developer Davao as SMDC’s hard work throughout the country was recognised. Winning Best Developer Philippines highlights the vision, innovation and impressive quality of projects under the watch of SMDC.

These three traits can all be found at Red Residences, one of SMDC most forward-thinking condominiums to date. Red Residences is finally allowing people to enjoy both the location of Chino Roces in Makati and lifestyle facilities that empowers them to pursue their passions. The project has been designed specifically to meet the lifestyle needs of a community of enterprising individuals. It isn’t a condominium so much as it is a living hub where residents can connect with people, ideas or business whenever they want.

In Bay City, SMDC’s Shore Residences has captured the luxury of a 5-star resort with the cosy atmosphere of a home. The low-rise condominium is equipped with spectacular amenities such as a resort-style swimming pool, luxurious lounges, modern fitness areas, gardens and spacious lobbies a few of the facilities available.

Another residential project from SMDC, Lush Residences, manages to embrace the cosmopolitan spirit of Makati in a manner the city has never seen. The developer offers residents a concierge lifestyle where everything from daily necessities to modern luxuries are readily provided. The goal is to ensure residents are free to pursue their passions and share moments with loved one.

SMDC’s work pays off in Davao 

smdc 2SMDC doesn’t have a long track record in Davao but its recent work there has been extremely impressive. The firm’s first residential project in Davao City, Lane Residences, brought convenience and a modern lifestyle to the area that has resonated with buyers.

Lane Residences features a wide range of resort-style amenities that appeal to families. Swimming pools, a jogging track, gazebos and clubhouse are just a few of the facilities found at the community.

Another key highlight is the location of Lane Residences. Situated in the heart of Davao City along J.P. Laurel Avenue, the demand for high-quality residences here is strong and SMDC has created a project that meets the tastes of modern residents. The estate is located next to SM Lanang Premier Mall with churches, hospitals and schools all close by. Meanwhile, major transportation hubs, including Francisco Bangoy International Airport, are all easily accessible from the development.

Lane Residences provides buyers with a great real estate investment for both end users or those wanting an income generating property with above average rental yields. There can be no doubt that SMDC has brought a new standard of living to Davao City with Lane Residences. And this work was worthy being named Best Developer Davao.

South Luzon success

SMDC 1Another area where SMDC is having significant success is South Luzon where you will find Leaf Residences, one of the developer’s most exciting projects outside of Metro Manila.

Boasting a design reminiscent of a tropical rainforest getaway, Leaf Residences is an ideal home for anyone wanting a private place surrounded by nature that doesn’t require the sacrificing of convenience. The private nature of the development is complemented by a commercial area on site where residents can pick up essentials without needing to leave the premises.

The central location of Leaf Residences makes it easy to get anywhere which also adds to the convenience. There are numerous shopping centres near the development, including SM Center Muntinlupa, while Alabang, and its numerous malls are just up the street. An onramp to the Metro Manila Skyway provides easy access to the National Capital Region while the South Luzon Expressway is also close by,

Leaf Residences boasts an impressive selection of amenities that offer the best in relaxation. It is possible to hop in the swimming pool or take a stroll in the peaceful parks found on-site. Staying in shape is made easy thanks to the fitness centre while the spacious lobby is equipped with Wi-Fi, providing a space to work.

Leaf Residences has been designed to provide a level of comfort currently unavailable elsewhere in South Luzon. This work, as well as SMDC’s other projects in the region, was honoured at the Dot Property Philippines Awards 2019 with the award for Best Developer South Luzon.
