SMDC sets foothold in C5-Ortigas corridor with the high-rise Gem Residences

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) – Leading residential developer SM Development Corporation (SMDC) launches its first of many developments East of the Metro with Gem Residences, located in C5-Ortigas. 


The 41-story tower is envisioned to be an urban centerpiece in the area, dubbed as “The New EDSA,” which will offer an integrated community that is ready for a smart and efficient future without missing the essential urban living resources. 

Living in Gem Residences bodes well with the “new normal” as smartly designed living spaces are offered to those who prefer to synergize productivity and leisure at the same time. 

Both indoor and outdoor spaces are designed with physical distancing in mind, with vast spaces for work or leisure such as an outdoor and indoor gym, a jogging path, a lap and kiddie pool, a stunning viewing deck, co-working spaces, function rooms, and a fun game area for kids. 

A built-in commercial area named The Strip enables residents to shop for necessities, bond with family and friends, or have that much-needed me time. 

The prime spot of Gem Residences puts everything within reach – from the hustling corporate life in the concrete jungles of nearby Ortigas, Bonifacio Global City, and Eastwood City central business districts to the accessible transportation options going to places like Pasig City, Quezon City, Taguig City, Makati City, and Rizal province. 

The MRT-4, expected to be completed in 2026, is also conveniently located near Gem Residences which will surely hike the place’s investment value. 

 C5 Road is also a booming economic highway as it is home to several retail and dining establishments and business entities like multinational corporations, business processing outsourcing companies, and automotive industry outlets. 

With an incredible location partnered with SMDC’s marvelous design, one can expect a brilliant life in the emerging C5 Ortigas corridor. Just as SMDC transformed EDSA into the urban centerpiece it is now, one can expect the company to once again create landmarks and change the landscape of the country’s next major thoroughfare through its newest development Gem Residences.
