Creators Park enables a multi-faceted lifestyle

In today’s challenging times, balance remains key.


It could be about ensuring that ample time is given for your work, family and personal pursuits or that you get to enjoy both the convenience of a demanding modern lifestyle and the comforts of an idyllic rural or suburban setting. Whether it’s in pursuit of better health, time management or success in different aspects for your life, a delicate balancing act will always be crucial.

While there are different factors that could affect your pursuit for balance, your choice of home and community can also have an impact. Some property developments in the metro are seen to be “more enabling” than others, in that, these projects allow you to remain in close proximity to all modern conveniences while still providing an oasis in the middle of a bustling city. Some enable you to thrive and succeed despite the frenzied pace of lifestyle in an urban center while still allowing you to breathe, relax and unwind afterwards.


The 41-story Gem Residences is one such community that offers an ideal sanctuary for modern urban dwellers in these trying times.

Rising along C-5 Road in Pasig City, this latest project from SM Development Corp. was designed particularly to provide active young professionals with a multi-faceted lifestyle and a home that offers wellness and productivity through its multifarious features and amenities.

Creating balance

What makes Gem Residences a prized treasure in this side of the metro is its amenity deck on the 9th floor, dubbed as the Creators Park. It brilliantly combines an array of amenities in more than 40 activity areas, all meant to support a holistic, well-balanced lifestyle for future residents.

“We call the amenities area the Creators Park. It is with green spaces, lounge areas (and) facilities for recreation that offer a modern yet laidback vibe for individuals and small groups to interact. It has indoor spaces (that) are intended for productive activities while outdoor spaces are for leisure and relaxation,” said Ar. Theresa Villa-Real of EA Aurelio Landscape Architects.

“(For) professionals who want to succeed in their career as well as have some space and time for relaxation, finding the balance between both work and play can be quite challenging. As such, we designed Creators Park so that the residents will have spaces that allow them to work at home if they so wish, and have spaces for them to chill and relax and unwind afterwards. We hope our design accomplishes that—creating a landscape that achieves this brilliance in design,” Villa-Real further explained.

According to Villa-Real, the Creators Park will be a combination of indoor and outdoor areas, to be connected through clean curves of paving material that creates a soft naturalistic aesthetic. Indoor areas have facilities for recreation and work while the outdoors will feature spaces that allow the mind and body to rest through therapeutic elements such as lush greens and water.

“We designed the outdoor area in a way that it’s inviting for all residents … (There’s) nothing like the sound of water feature providing an oasis-like experience within the bustling metropolis,” she added.


SMDC has centered on three main uses for its amenity deck: wellness, productivity and socialization. Future residents will get to enjoy wellness facilities that include outdoor and indoor gyms, the Calisthenics Tract (a yoga deck), jogging path, and swimming pools. And to ensure that you would also have conducive spaces for work within this vertical community, SMDC will also feature a co-working space called The Concord; a breakout area meant for informal meetings, dubbed the Idea Zone; and a meditation area or the Visionary’s Corner, where you can take quick breaks from work and get reenergized anew.

Socialization facilities meanwhile offer areas where family and friends can gather for small, simple celebrations in Gem Residences’ function room (Celebration Hall); a relaxing game of billiards, chess or table tennis at The Arcade; play time for the kids at the playground; or even for just a quick catch up while enjoying stunning, sweeping vistas of the city skyline from the City Observation Deck.

A wide, brightly lit dropoff area will warmly welcome residents and guests at Gem Residences.

Work-life integration

Beyond its amenities, Gem Residences further allow you to pursue a seamless work-life integration. Similar to other SMDC developments, it will also have a commercial center that will house other companies under the SM Group including essential stores (groceries, pharmacies and banks), service centers, retail shops and dining outlets to quickly serve your needs.

And given its strategic location, Gem Residences also offers the ease of accessibility and proximity to key establishments, institutions and other business and financial districts including Ortigas Center and Bonifacio Global City (BGC).

That it will rise along a major thoroughfare like C-5 and will be near planned infrastructure projects, Gem Residences already offers the potential for capital value appreciation.

Finding your balance will indeed be made easier at Gem Residences, as it gives you that opportunity to live a brilliant lifestyle—one that meets your need for wellness and productivity amid these challenging times.
