• 5 min. read
Designing an urban development solution to meet city dwellers’ needs.
Residential developments in the Mall of Asia complex, like Sail Residences, will soon benefit from an integrated monorail system connecting to EDSA and Taft Avenue.
Property developer SM Development Corporation (SMDC) has an urban development solution for people who want to cut down on travel time: build luxurious, high-rise residential properties in prime, strategic locations within short-walking distance of arterial roads, rapid transit lines, and public transportation hubs. This proximity reduces the number of rides they must take, as well as their commute time.
SMDC’s vertical communities in Quezon City, Manila, Pasay, Pasig, Paranaque, Las Pinas, Makati, and Mandaluyong are, indeed, very near and accessible to commuter and highway infrastructure. Living here greatly reduces the time for and stress of commuting.
In addition to commuter connectivity, SMDC residents get a lifestyle upgrade, as all SMDC projects have built-in leisure amenities, and are connected to a mall or has its own retail strip. Residents enjoy an improved quality of life, as leisure and access to necessities are within walking distance, or only an elevator ride away.
The other perks of living in an SMDC development? Security and reducing your household carbon footprint. Exposure to travel hazards are considerably minimized and the development’s 24/7 gated community security arrangements ensure privacy and safety. The household energy consumption (in electricity and gasoline terms) is also reduced, as they will be availing of the development’s common leisure facilities and of the shopping and leisure district they are a part of.
