There is so much to look forward to these days. Now that restrictions are being eased, we’re finally seeing a certain semblance of normalcy, which tells us that things are going to be better soon. And the best part is, I can finally travel again!

Yes, I missed this amazing and exciting jetset lifestyle that I—and probably many of us, too—had been accustomed to prepandemic. So as soon as it was allowed (with health and safety protocols in mind, of course), I traveled to the US midway through the year for a time of reflection. More recently, I also flew to Siargao to test its world famous waves, and Boracay, to enjoy its gorgeous, still pristine white sand beach.

But what’s even better is that I recently found another thing to look forward to—something that will perfectly match that fast paced, globe-traipsing cosmopolitan lifestyle that I hope to return to once the pandemic is over.

Gateway to the world

SM Development Corp.’s Gold Residences, a cluster of eight 15-story residential towers, will soon make it easier for me to explore the world effortlessly. How so?

This resort-styled integrated lifestyle community will rise within the 11-ha Gold City, SMDC’s pioneer township development in Parañaque City, which is just across the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1. That’s literally less than a kilometer and just minutes away from the airport! How convenient, right? 

Gold Residences truly offers a strategic address that gives you unparalleled connectivity, a premier masterplanned gateway that will bring you closer to your destinations across the country and the world. At some point, I’m sure you’ll find it faster to travel to a local destination than to get through the other end of the metro.

Gold Residences Phase 2 main lobby

Apart from an unrivaled location, Gold Residences presents a healthy, walkable yet safe and secure community with thoughtfully designed spaces where we can live, work, play and do all other kinds of activities that make life more meaningful.

From the time you step inside its grand lobby that exudes natural elegance with its sculpted ceiling lights, and striking accent pieces, Gold Residences warmly welcomes you to an exciting opulent lifestyle. The massive foyer features towering art panels that provide a stark backdrop for dramatic installations and rock-inspired elements with rich details. It’s a feast for the senses!

Expansive living spaces also come with exquisite finishes and stunning panoramic views of the cityscape from your balcony. Curated amenities—such as social hall, lounge areas, lush gardens, swimming pool and a fitness facility, among others—will further offer an aspirational lifestyle that has, no doubt, already turned Gold Residences into a highly coveted address in the metro.

Aspirational address

Fortunately, you still have the opportunity to make this aspirational address yours.

Those who want to be part of this award-winning property should check out Gold RESO—SMDC’s latest innovation designed for entrepreneurs and small businesses looking for a practical but still prestigious address. Here is a space that is conducive for your family and your business.

Gold RESO, which means residential and office, provides the luxury and comforts of a premium condominium but with features suited for professionals and entrepreneurs. Its strategic location will not only provide easy access to high-end, large scale commercial complexes, luxury hotels, and business districts, but will more importantly offer local and global connectivity as it’s right across the international airport—enabling you to fly in and out of the metro or the country with such ease.

Like large-scale offices, Gold RESO also has provisions for back-up power to avoid disruptions or downtime. Physical support amenities such as coworking spaces and meeting rooms will cater to the needs of a budding entrepreneur.

Get full flexibility of space by turning your personal area into your very own “office zone.”

It’ll be an impressive address for your business, too, given Gold RESO’s contemporary design and luxurious features. With shops and commercial establishments nearby, convenience is unmatched, making it truly worth its weight in gold.

Overall, Gold RESO gives you better efficiencies in managing your business. It means less cost as you won’t have to invest in equipment and facilities since Gold RESO will make available certain services on demand (and for a friendly fee). It also means less the hassle of needing to brave through the traffic to get to your office in another district.

Gold RESO’s Central Pavilion with refreshment lounge allows you fully enjoy the view of the outdoor garden.

That said, Gold RESO offers the opportunity to convert capital otherwise used as extra operating costs into real assets. In doing so, they can keep the prices of their products and services competitive. It’s not at all surprising that those looking for a secondary source of income will want to be among the first owners of such a development.

Award winning property 

If you need any more convincing (which I doubt), Gold Residences hauled five major plums in the recently concluded 9th PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards. SMDC itself had its share of top awards—11 major wins, including Best Developer (Philippines) for the second year in a row and Best Lifestyle Developer, as well as 12 Highly Commended citations.

Gold Residences was named the Best Mid Rise Condo Development (Philippines); Best High End Condo Development (Metro Manila); Best Lifestyle Development; Best Landscape Architectural Design; and Best Mixed Use Development. Under the Design Category, Gold Residences also received Highly Commended citations for Best Condo Architectural Design and Best Condo Interior Design Awards.

With that promised access to an exciting modern urban hustle and a globe-trotting cosmopolitan lifestyle, I truly can’t wait for Gold Residences.
