MANILA, Philippines — The bustling city of Santa Rosa has not only grown in the number of industrial developments but has also integrated the importance of open and healthy spaces, future-proofing a master-planned community for generations to come.
Southerners particularly those attuned to the provincial charm of Laguna continue to choose a tranquil lifestyle with just the right measure of urban living. Weekends are spent with friends and families to relax and meditate, under an unpolluted view of the sky, and surrounded by nature.
This is the inspiration of SMDC in creating Park Residences, its freshly announced development that allocates almost half of its property to open space.
Rising on a five-hectare land beside SM City Santa Rosa, the enclave features 14 buildings each with five stories of spacious two-bedroom “deliverable flexi suites” — offering a common floor size of 28.52 square meters for all residential units. The flexi layout means residents can choose from studio, one-bedroom or two-bedroom setup, which cost an average of P2.7 million.
Despite being positioned within the mall complex and near transport hubs and highway links, the property highlights exclusivity and peace of mind, amplified by park-themed amenities that will immerse future residents in an active lifestyle and much-needed break from daily stress.
A dominant feature is The Central Park that not only links the buildings, but also creates a vantage point where children can breathe fresh air and freely play in a secure outdoor environment. Couples can walk together, and friends can catch up or do exercise by the handsome stone gardens and picturesque nooks.
Gone are the days when living in a condominium meant closing your door to your neighbors. Park Residences inspires community wellness and socialization.
SM lifestyle in a ‘micro city’
Offering a myriad of lifestyle choices for rest, relaxation and entertainment at one’s doorstep, the time is ripe for SM’s micro city in this part of Laguna.
Primed to offer a peaceful retreat after a day’s work, Park Residences not only offers a peaceful home “within a park” but a sanctuary in the middle of everything—dining options, cinemas and entertainment venues, popular retail shops, boutique stores, a hypermarket and department store, banks and other service stations.
For years, SMDC has captured the hearts of young working professionals, students and starting families wanting to live the SM lifestyle in the metro—with the likes of Mezza II Residences located across SM City Sta. Mesa, Grass Residences near SM City North Edsa, Spring Residences beside SM City Bicutan, Field Residences behind SM City Sucat, South Residences within SM Southmall, Vine Residences at SM City Novaliches, and the luxurious SMDC addresses strategically nestled just a few steps away from SM Mall of Asia.
With the expansion of work and education opportunities in the metro’s neighboring provincial cities and first-class towns, SMDC is filling the niche for families looking for a firm foundation suited to today’s fast-paced lifestyle. These are families and young workers who have recognized the impact and benefits of living in the healthier sub-urban landscapes.
Thinking one step ahead, SM Group has created an exclusive road years before unveiling its plans for Park Residences. The wide road used to connect the SM City Santa Rosa to the SLEX’s Mamplasan Exit, gives mall goers the convenience of avoiding the traffic gridlock along Laguna’s national highway.
Today, Park Residences’ accessibility to Metro Manila (it’s just a ride away from Makati) and other key destinations in Southern Tagalog, heightens with the ongoing formation of the four-lane Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAx).
The 45-kilometer closed-system tollway will reduce travel time from Cavitex in Kawit, Cavite to SLEX by 45 minutes while traversing major thoroughfares—such as Governor’s Drive, Silang Interchange and Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road—connecting the area to major hospitals, universities and technoparks.
What’s not to love with an exclusive home right beside the mall that’s far from the noise of the big city? With living within a pioneering commercial district that knows the boundary between environmental preservation and urban progression?
Welcome to Park Residences, your new home in the South.
