Living a life with Zeal: SMDC’s newest development in Cavite ideal for a life in full swing

Published By: Manila Standard | October 26, 2022

Demand for residential real estate outside of Metro Manila has been growing over the years. Apart from urban development transforming more provincial cities into progressive, well-connected economic hotspots, people now pay more attention to quality of life — preferring open spaces and access to greeneries, while living the pulse of city life.

SM Development Corporation (SMDC), which was awarded 2022 DOT Property Philippines’ “Developer of the Year,” is developing master-planned communities which blend modernity with a laid-back lifestyle. One such enclave is Zeal Residences in the commercialized and industrialized General Trias, Cavite.


A gated mid-rise development in General Trias Cavite, Zeal Residences provides utmost safety and security for residents. With an attentive property management team, 24/7 security, and a CCTV network with a centralized round-the-clock system, residents get to worry less and are empowered to achieve more in life.

Cavite as a flourishing locale

Cavite has evolved into a remarkable area for business and real estate development. “GenTri” or General Trias in CALABARZON, has been a growth area, listed among the cities with the highest locally-generated incomes in the region. The PEC Industrial Park, the largest of Cavite’s 12 economic zones, is in Gen Tri and hosts Information Technology and Business Process Management companies.

As the “Historical Capital of the Philippines,” Cavite has much to offer, too, when it comes to tourism. From the cozy breeze and endless gastronomic adventures in Tagaytay, to historical journeys in Corregidor Island, to the warmth of the sun in Boracay De Cavite, to cold, refreshing waters in Balite Falls, and even to artfully-crafted brewed coffee at a nearby plantation — Cavite is home to the most zestful experiences.

Zeal Residences then offers home buyers an animated life full of purpose and leisure. Work and life seamlessly intersect in this strategic location. You no longer have to look far for fresh air, promising career and business opportunities, or eventful weekend day trips. All the hallmarks of vibrance are right at your fingertips.

Progress through and through

Expanding livability outside the country’s capital are many infrastructure projects, which allow greater mobility and improved accessibility, and open doors for inclusive growth.

For one, major road networks such as the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) and the Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCX), and railways such as the planned LRT Line 1 Cavite Extension put Cavite-based dwellers within an hour’s drive from premiere central business districts of Alabang, Mall of Asia Complex, Makati City, and Bonifacio Global City.


With social, economic, and environmental pillars, SMDC’s three-pronged approach to sustainability guarantees residents a well-rounded lifestyle. Amenities that encourage physical activity and socialization are placed at the heart of each SMDC development so that residents lead happier, healthier lives.

Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) and the proposed Cavite-Tagaytay-Batangas Expressway (CTBEX), on the other hand, improve the flow of goods and services in Southern Luzon. With Ninoy Aquino International Airport and the future Sangley Point International Airport in proximity, Zeal Residences is practical for those with an air travel agenda.

These, all together, mean exceptional promise for Zeal Residences. As Colliers International Philippines notes, Cavite is bound to solidify its position as a major property investment destination, given the infrastructure projects that further the “live-work-play-shop” lifestyle.

Breathe life in

Homebuyers look to gated residential developments for safety, security, exclusivity, and now for a sense of community. Community life in Zeal Residences is nurtured by resort-style amenities, situated at the heart of the development, which serve as places for rest, recreation, and meeting with loved ones and neighbors.


With a wide range of end-users in mind, SMDC curates units based on the ideal lifestyle of homebuyers. From studio units to one-bedroom units — living spaces at Zeal Residences allows natural light and ventilation to permeate through the expanse.

As one of SMDC’s roster of mid-rise garden communities, Zeal Residences has holistic offerings that foster social connections and make your immediate environment exciting. Lounge languorously at the lap pool. Quench your thirst for competition at the covered court, or meet a workout buddy out at the outdoor gym. Make fond memories with your young ones at the kiddie pool and the playground. For special occasions, a clubhouse is at your disposal.

With SMDC’s distinct brand of professional property management and end-to-end leasing services, these facilities not only make up an ideal community in Cavite, but a marketable investment you could easily profit from.

As a first-class city with remarkable access to the capital region and the rest of Southern Luzon, properties in General Trias, Cavite are well-positioned to appreciate as time goes by. It also caters to an extensive pool of end-users — be it visiting tourists, or upwardly mobile families seeking for an upgraded home.
