SMDC South 2 Residences: Luxury and accessibility in a home

Upholding the standards of excellence that led to its recognition as 2020 Best Developer at the 8th PropertyGuru Awards, SM Development Corporation (SMDC) continues to redefine the landscape of urban dwelling with game-changing projects that perfectly strike the balance between luxury and accessibility.

Hot on the heels of the company’s recently honored properties – Sail Residences, Park Residences, Fern at Grass Residences, and Charm Residences – SMDC’s latest project, South 2 Residences offers SMDC’s brand of five-star features, hotel-like experience, and generous resort-type amenities, in a master-planned community that provides access to all of the essentials for the perfect live-work-play environment.


South 2 Residence is part of the ambitious SM Lifestyle City masterplan, a complete premier community in a sprawling 200,000 square meters of endless daily conveniences – from shopping, entertainment, and dining options – via the SM Southmall. It also includes SM South Tower offices, a transport hub in SM Southmall Transport Terminal, and a future educational institution.


The project is located in Las Piñas City, a first-class, highly urbanized city in Metro Manila known for its rich history and close proximity not only to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport but also to leisure destinations in Tagaytay, Laguna, and Batangas. The city also serves as the gateway between Metro Manila and the Calabarzon industrial growth area.

Aside from its accessibility to major establishments such as churches, schools, restaurants, banks, and shopping malls, Las Piñas is also mostly flood-free and has developed a reputation for its clean air and business-friendly local government. These are just some of the reasons why it comes as no surprise why an increasing number of people have not only invested in the city but have also taken up residence here.

Like the original South Residences, South 2 Residences is designed for convenience and promises a modern lifestyle in a dynamic market and ever-growing economy.​ The 2.1-hectare mid-rise residential development composed of three, 15-story towers is located at Brgy. Almanza Uno, Las Piñas City within the SM Southmall complex.


A modern and fully secured community, the project boasts five-star features that include its spacious grand lobby that residents can utilize as shared working spaces, especially from those who are working from home.

The huge open and green spaces in its amenity floor promote active lifestyles for the whole family with adult and kiddie swimming pools, a gazebo, a children’s playground, and function rooms in a gated community.

Future residents can choose between one- and two-bedroom units that are easy to maintain and enjoy natural lighting and ventilation.

For those who prefer to invest in South 2 Residences, expect high rental yields and steady capital appreciation. Its predecessor South Residences experienced an impressive CAGR of 11.77 percent from its launch in 2015 to date. It also certainly helps that the property is developed by the largest real estate conglomerate in the country and consistently honored for its outstanding efforts.

In accepting the PropertyGuru’s Best Developer award for 2020, SMDC President Jose Mari Banzon said the honor is “a validation that we have indeed turned our vision into reality, that we are contributing to building a nation of homeowners; not just any home, but a home that allows the homeowner to live his best life.”

Along with its other properties, SMDC’s South 2 Residences remains true to the company’s vision of providing Filipinos what Banzon rightly refers to as “the best value for their hard-earned money with homes that provide the best possible living experience.”
