SM Development Corporation (SMDC) was a big winner at the recently concluded Carousell Property Awards 2023 as it took home the Best Developer Award for its condominium projects that meet the needs of Filipinos across socio-economic classes.
The award-giving body, organized annually by the country’s leading online marketplace, conferred the major award to SMDC, specifically citing its three residential condominium projects namely, Charm Residences, Hill Residences and Sail Residences all of which are future-ready, strategically built in accessible locations, and designed to meet the unique needs of its target residents.
“I’d like to thank Carousell for making us the Developer of the Year, under the Carousell Property Awards 2022. It makes us realize that you appreciate the hard work of our people, and our mission of providing affordable housing to Filipinos,” said Jose Mari Banzon, President of SMDC.
Named Best Mid-Range Condominium, Charm Residences in Felix Avenue, Cainta, Rizal is the first development of the leading real estate developer in the east of Metro Manila. This garden-themed vertical property with resort-like amenities creates a perfect combination of a cozy lifestyle and stylish convenience.
Charm Residences is located alongside Sumulong Highway, where within reach are essential establishments and transportation hubs, such as the newly-completed LRT-2 East Extension. Residents also have immediate access to various thoroughfares such as Marcos Highway, Ortigas Avenue and C5. Likewise, Charm Residences is near vibrant commercial districts, like Ortigas Center and Eastwood City, giving residents proximity to various local and multinational corporations.
In Novaliches, Quezon City, Hill Residences was awarded Best Affordable Condominium. Located near Quirino Highway and North Luzon Express Way (NLEX), the condominium project is an exclusive vertical village that provides the whole package so residents don’t need to go anywhere else but home. Nearby malls include SM Novaliches and SM Fairview.
Sitting in the higher parts of Novaliches with an elevation of about 50 meters above sea level, residents of Hill Residences won’t need to worry about flooding. Moreover, its value is only expected to increase over time with infrastructure projects like MRT-7 making it easy and convenient for residents to get to commercial districts.
Lastly, Sail Residences bagged the Best in High End Condominium award. Its location in the Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City immediately makes it a prime residential project. Nestled within a budding business district, Sail Residences allows residents to have access to SM Mall of Asia, as well as sought-after office spaces and other entertainment establishments like the Mall of Asia Arena.
Bordered by Manila Bay, Sail Residences provides a picturesque view of the Manila seascape. Residents can soon have seamless travel options to key places in the metro with the development of the Pasay Monorail, which will connect the Mall of Asia Complex to several modes of transportation, including the MRT-3’s Taft station and LRT-1’s EDSA station, and the EDSA busways.
“As the fastest-growing real estate developer, SMDC has consistently developed projects with a sense of foresight, empathy and care as it is able to provide the unique needs of Filipino end-users when it comes to residential spaces,” said said Shine Resurreccion, head of autos and property of Carousell Philippines.
On its second year, the Carousell Property Awards continues to honor the notable and pioneering real estate developers in the Philippines and their noteworthy developments in the past year.
