The group won big awards for Gold, Vine, Green 2 residences, and more.
Following a tremendous showing last year, SMDC bagged a total of 11 awards at the 9th PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards including the highly coveted best developer (Philippines) for the second straight year, and best mid-rise condo development (Philippines) for Gold Residences. The awards ceremony was held virtually on November 11, 2021.
Alongside winning best developer, SMDC also secured the all-new best developer (Luzon) award as well as being a two-time winner for the best lifestyle developer award in recognition of the company’s efforts to offer additional facilities across all developments made to enhance the living experience of residents.
In the development category, Gold Residences, within Gold City – SMDC’s pioneer township development in Parañaque City – is the winner of the best mixed-use development award. Gold Residences won the best high-end condo development (Metro Manila) and best lifestyle development awards as well.
Vine Residences won the best upper affordable condo development (Metro Manila) award, while Green 2 Residences earned the award for best high-end condo development (Southern Luzon).
Many other SMDC projects were highly commended across several development categories: best high-end condo development for Metro Manila (Sail Residences), best upper mid-end condo for Metro Manila (Light 2 Residences, Shore 3 Residences), best upper affordable condo development for Metro Manila (Bloom Residences, Charm Residences), best affordable condo development (Hill Residences), best condo development for Metro Davao (Lane Residences), best condo development for Central Luzon (Cheer Residences), and best condo development for Visayas (Smile Residences, Style Residences).
Gold Residences also won in the design category, earning the title of best landscape architectural design as well as commendations for the best condo architectural design and best condo interior design awards.
Light 2 Residences (best condo architectural design) and Vine Residences (best landscape architectural design) were also among the developments highly commended by the awarding body.
SMDC was also among the winners of the special recognition in sustainable design and construction – an award given to developers whose projects utilize environmentally-friendly design features, low-impact material selection, and are assessed to be durably designed and capable of withstanding various lifecycles.
This year’s results further build on what has been a highly successful awards show run for SMDC, continuously driving the company’s vision to make luxurious urban living more affordable, and enabling more Filipinos access to a truly cosmopolitan lifestyle.
“For our efforts to be recognized by an esteemed organization such as PropertyGuru is indeed something we at SMDC can truly be proud of,” SMDC president Jose Mari Banzon said. “While these wins certainly validate the collective work we have done to realize the vision of our company founders, ultimately, they fuel our drive towards the creation of a nation of homeowners where each and every Filipino can live their best lives.”
