MANILA, Philippines — Residential developer SM Development Corp. has rolled out its latest residential condominium project along Roxas Boulevard, the 38-story Breeze Residences.

The residential arm of the SM group announced that the new project offers studio and one-bedroom units with balconies, designed to offer panoramic views of the Manila Bay and the Manila cityscape.

Unit sizes range between 22 square meters and 41 sqm with the current selling prices at between P2 million and P4.9 million, SMDC said in a statement on Thursday.

Construction of the single tower condominium has commenced and is targeted for completion by the fourth quarter of 2016.

The residential project is located within easy reach of shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations such as the Mall of Asia Complex, Entertainment City and Star City. It is easily accessible to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport terminals, EDSA-Taft MRT station, and bus transit points along Edsa. It is also close to various educational, medical, and religious establishments, as well as cultural and tourist hotspots.

Breeze Residences is master-planned to suit the needs and lifestyles of single young professionals, expatriates and starting families, SMDC said.

Its amenities include a grand lobby, two lap pools, a kiddie pool, landscaped gardens with covered gazebos, poolside lounge areas, a children’s playground and a Sky Lounge at the penthouse, from which residents can unwind over panoramic views of Manila Bay or the Manila skyline. Various commercial establishments are expected to rise at the ground floor.

The launch of Breeze Residences brings to 17 SMDC’s ongoing residential projects under its SM Residences brand while one project is ongoing under the more affordable M Place brand.

    38 na palapag. kakayanin kaya ang bigat ng gusali kapag itinayo sa malambot na lupa sa manila bay? hindi kaya bumigay ito kapag nagkaroon ng malakas na lindol? sana mali lang ako.

    It is almost a foregone conclusion that the SM SY family group is putting money in the right places which is why they can go about their business in making themselves richer while taking advantage of the poor in many cases. If the Philippine government wants to help out the poor they should take a closer look at all of the SM SY groups business endeavors like land acquisition for their malls and other stuff.

    NEVER EVER BUY FROM SMDC. This is coming from personal experience. Just make sure you talk to at least one unit owner of Sea Residences before you put in your hard earned money here!!! SIGURADO AKO MAGSISISI KA!

    The Govt can consider planning PPP projects for condominium to be availed by the lower income groups. If the Govt can identify poor families in its dole out programs then presumably it can do the same with housing.

    Ad Nauseam (but it doesn’t hurt to be vigilant):
    Hindi lang sa public sector may mangungurakot.
    Pati sa private sector din.
    KINUKURAKOT ng contractor ang pera para sa materyales para sa condominium.
    Ang tawag diyan ay KICKBACK.

    Very poor ang construction ng mga smdc condominiums. Dapat imbestigahan ang mga ito. Sa grass sa north edsa, npakasama ng mga kuwarto, maliliit at natutuklap na mga wall papers bago pa matirahan.

    The unit of SMDC is so cheap looking …cheap finishing material….balbon ang trabaho…in other words not a good investment

    Holy shhii|tt. Almost P5 million for 41 sqm??? Never mind, Henry Sy. For that same amount, I could get nearly double the area from a Megaworld or DMCI project.

    To solve the housing problem, congress has to enact law requiring developers to construct low cost housing units at the ratio of 2:1 – for every 2 room units there should be 1 room for low cost housing though not within the high end units but at the outskirts of metropolis. These have to be compact community to entice those estero squatting families. But I’m afraid nobody among our lawmakers would dare do this because for sure the major campaign contributors are these developers; as they say, hiway mung putolin ang kamay na nagpakain sa yo

      And exactly who will shoulder the bill? Should the expense for the ‘low cost housing’ be passed to buyers of condos in the city or as a general government expense to be paid by taxpayers? Are you suggesting we should be shifting priorities of our society so that the working class heavily subsidize the lifestyle of the tamad class and promote a culture of parasitic dependence? Haven’t the government already spent (and continue spending) a lot of taxpayers’ money for dole outs to the tamad class?

        It’s a sign of a civilized society if it looks after its poorest citizens.

    • manila_boy

      Nobody dares to do this simply because its a stupid idea that can only have come from the thoughts of an equally stupid person

      Enough said.
