Driven by a vision, SMDC scores big wins
The grand slam wins of SM Development Corp. (SMDC) at the 7th Property Guru Philippines Property Awards 2019 were clearly a testament of how the company continues to strive to fulfill the vision of its chairman, Henry Sy Jr.—which is for the “Philippines to be a nation of homeowners” and for more Filipinos to have “a better life, primarily with a roof on our heads and a good, clean environment to live in.”
SMDC, indeed, is bent on delivering its promise of providing “access to luxurious urban living through vertical villages perfectly integrated with a commercial retail environment, giving its residents access to a truly cosmopolitan lifestyle.”
So far, it seems that it’s a promise that was already fulfilled. SMDC has launched over 38 projects in prime locations for the past 11 years, sold over 100,000 units and delivered 60,000 units, the owners of whom will surely revel from the resort-styled amenities, hotel-like lobbies and professional property management. And as they say, the proof is in the awards.
