SMDC Developments: Perfect for Mobile City Residents

Creating an urban development solution to fulfill the demands of city people. SMDC Developments: Perfect for Mobile City Residents.

Metro Manila’s urban sprawl of 636 square kilometers is home to a population of 13.4 million, which swells up to 16 million during weekdays with the influx of workforce from adjacent Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, Bulacan, and Pampanga. The business, commercial, and household activities of Metro Manila residents and workers contribute 31.5% of the Philippines’ GDP.

From another perspective, Metro Manila is made up of 3.5 million households. Every day, millions of adults and children traverse the metropolis for work, school, or errands, then going the reverse way when they go home, making access to public transportation and thoroughfares incredibly important. However, most subdivisions and neighborhoods do not have such easy access, forcing many to take multiple rides to reach their destination.

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.

Several SMDC properties will be a few steps from the Metro Manila Subway, a cutting-edge infrastructure project which will surely have a positive impact on the megalopolis for years to come.

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.
