Capping off a momentous year for the company, SM Development Corporation (SMDC) was one of 135 developers in contention for regional accolades at the Grand Final of the 16th PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards held virtually on December 9, 2021. The shortlist of nominees was created from an elite pool of award-winning developers and projects distinguished by the series of hybrid and virtual PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards celebrations held this year.
The inclusion rounds off a stellar showing for SMDC across this year’s PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards program. Leading up to the Grand Final, SMDC won 11 awards at the 9th PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards held in November. Among the awards won were the titles of Best Developer (Philippines) and Best Lifestyle Developer – winning both for the second straight year – as well as the award for Best Developer (Luzon) and the Special Recognition in Sustainable Design and Construction.
At the 9th PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards, SMDC properties also won and earned commendations in several development and design categories. Gold City – SMDC’s pioneer township development in Parañaque – earned the title of Best Mixed Use Development. Embodying Gold City’s seamless fusion of striking architecture and luxury living, Gold Residences won Best Mid Rise Condo Development (Philippines), Best High End Condo Development (Metro Manila), Best Landscape Architectural Design, and Best Lifestyle Development. Vine Residences won Best Upper Affordable Condo Development (Metro Manila) Award, while Green 2 Residences was named Best High End Condo Development (Southern Luzon).
The success and recognition attained in both the local and regional awards show circuits are a testament to SMDC’s ongoing efforts to make the company’s vision a reality for more Filipinos – to make luxurious urban living more accessible by leading the way in the development of affordable, secure, and sustainable communities.
“The PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards is a platform that showcases and celebrates the achievements and innovations of real estate developers across Asia-Pacific. As a developer, the recognition SMDC has earned both locally and regionally this year from such an esteemed organization is something we at the company will certainly take pride in and celebrate,” SMDC President Jose Mari Banzon said. “While we at SMDC can certainly hold our heads high with the success we have collectively achieved on the local front, while our endeavors continue to be recognized across the region, our feet remain firmly on the ground, our vision remains clear, and our hands remain clearly focused on our goal of nation building – empowering each and every Filipino to own homes that cater to their ever-evolving needs,” Banzon added.
