Home is where you find yourself: a haven where you are safe, content, and secure. With the churn and grind of urbanization, it can be challenging to find that safe haven within the metropolis. 

There are many reasons why many people choose to invest in homes in the city. It could be proximity to work or simply a desire for a slice of the urban life. Some do it for investment, others as a dwelling place during trips to the Metro or as a future home for one’s kids. For many, Metro living means being close to the action and to new and exciting possibilities. 

One needs the kind of environment that enables one to find that settling down place, one that opens up possibilities for brilliant city living.

This is what Gem Residences offers, the only development in the C5-Pasig stretch that has direct access to C5 road. 

Gem Residences is designed for established and sophisticated upwardly mobile Filipinos who want to shine and live brilliantly. Located along the flourishing C5-Ortigas corridor in Pasig City, the 41-storey tower offers world-class amenities that create the perfect balance between work, rest, and recreation, under the skillful hands of award-winning masters of design: Asya Design Partner, M Concept and EA Aurelio Landscape Architects (EAALA).

Asya is ranked #32 of Top 100 Architects in the World Architecture Survey 2020, an annual survey of the largest architectural practitioners in the world. Asya’s thick portfolio includes projects in Shanghai, Taicang, Xiamen, Chengdu, Songjiang, Suzhou and the Philippines. It has been awarded consistently by BCI Asia as one of the Top Ten Architectural Firms in the Philippines since 2005.

M Concept is the interior design firm behind SMDC’s award-winning developments, such as last year’s International Property Guru Awards and Asia Property Awards runaway winners: Air and Shore Residences (Best High-End Condo Interior Design for the Philippines and for Asia Pacific), and Coast Residences (Highly Commended Design for the Philippines and for Asia Pacific)

EAALA is one of the Philippines’ leading architectural firms that combines expertise in landscape architecture, master planning and environmental graphics. Among its award-winning designs for SMDC are: Highly Commended Residential Landscape Architectural Design (2016 Asia Pacific Development Awards) for Jazz Residences and 2019 Property Guru Philippines’ Best Condo Landscape Architectural Design for Vine Residences and Shore Residences. 

Says Arch. Albert Yu, Asya’s principal architect, “We explored the dynamics between the city and its skyline, and the land where the development is located. We focused on simplicity and precision.” The result is architecture that is modern, functional and designed to stand out in the bustling C5-Pasig stretch.

Residents will be treated to magnificent views of the Ortigas skyline and the Antipolo hills. “The tower is designed for residents to enjoy the beauty of the cityscapes,” says Arch. Yu.
