Is this in the same street where Taguig Medical Centre will be built?

Are there any plans to develop that DMCI warehouse next to it?

Is this on the fault line or how close is this to the fault line? What is SM doing to protect the buildings from a possible massive earthquake?

Wow, pretty close to Acacia Estates area. Hopefully, this will help spur the development in the non-BGC part of Taguig which still feels "provincial" in many respects, including the lack of establishments and banks. For the stretch of Levi Mariano Ave., for example, there is only 1 bank- a very small branch of Allied Bank. That would be unheard of in any other major city here in Manila.

There really should be a flyover linking Levi Mariano Ave. to McKinley BGC area. Right now, without the SM project, traffic na from Levi Mariano to C-5 via the Service Road.

Tell me about - sometimes you could be stuck for 30 min in the traffic line to get out of C5! Do you think the flyover you mention is possible? With all those houses/local market in the way?

All they have to do is extend the road from under the bridge past the outdoor market straight into McKinley hill.

In Europe I've seen local communities trial a community-funded pedestrian construction, wonder if it could work here (but for road extensions in our case) and the people who fund the construction would get a return on their investment by way of toll gates on the new road (and of course less traffic!)

I know it seems like a crazy idea in this country, but Im willing to back anyone that comes up with a similar idea for circumventing the government's inefficiencies.

Well, when I was first looking at Acacia Estates, Levi Mariano Ave. didn't reach C-5 or the Service Road. It stopped right at the bridge - where all the taxis/carienderias are - supposedly the site of Grace Residences. They had to demolish a lot of the houses to make way for the road. So, if there's political will, there's a way

Sadly though, I don't think the current leadership has political will. And no eye for infrastructure projects as well. All the developments happening outside BGC is despite her, rather than because of her.

Taguig, outside BGC, is ruled by informal settlers and tricycle drivers who overcharge. This is the only place I know where "commuting" is "riding a tricycle". Where are the jeepneys or buses? Why are no studies being made on new routes for jeepneys? Why are jeepneys allowed to cause traffic to C-5 NB in the BCDA and Palar area by occupying 3 lanes of C-5 just trying to load passengers? It's chaos. I wish we had Bayani Fernando or Dick Gordon as mayor.

Hmmm I'm sure SMDC is doing measures to ensure the safety of the project against earthquakes.

SM Grace has four towers - the first one is sold out, the second one is around half. Third and fourth are not yet offered.

Demand for SMDC projects exceeds P30b
By Jenniffer B. Austria | Manila Standard Today | Wednesday | Posted on Dec. 12, 2012 at 12:01am

SM Development Corp., the real estate unit of retail tycoon Henry Sy, said Tuesday reservation sales in the first 11 months topped P30 billion, as the demand for affordable housing projects remains strong.

SMDC president and chief operating officer Rosaline Qua said in a news briefing reservation sales as of November exceeded the full-year target of P28 billion in 2012.

Qua said in 2013, the company expected net income, revenues and reservation sales to grow by 10 percent
to 15 percent.

The company plans to launch three new projects next year with a total of 10,000 units to sustain the growth in sales.

SMDC vice chairman and chief executive Henry Sy Jr. said the company would also launch a lower cost brand with units costing between P1 million and P1.5 billion soon.

Sy said the first project would be located in Fairview Quezon City, near the group’s shopping mall. This will be the third residential brand of SMDC, after SM Residences and MPLACE.

Sy said the company purchased P20 billion of land this year mostly in Metro Manila for future development. The company also intends to acquire land in other key cities.

Sy said to boost sales to Filipinos overseas, the company would set up offices in Italy, the United Kingdom, the Middle East and the United States. Filipinos overseas account for about 30 percent of the company’s sales.

“We are in the stage wherein OFW remittances are still growing and BPO sector is strong, and our product is well accepted. We are in sweet spot that will go in our favor over the next few years,” Sy said.

The company last month launched two new projects called Breeze Residences, a high-rise residential tower along Roxas Boulevard and Grace Residences, a residential project in Taguig City with 5,500 units worth P12.7 billion.

“We are really setting our sights on providing Filipinos with quality homes in prime locations. Although SMDC is not the only real estate developer in this category, we like to think that we do create a significant impact among competition and the industry,” Qua said.

SMDC seen focusing on medium-rise projects
By Doris C. Dumlao | Philippine Daily Inquirer | Wednesday, December 12th, 2012 | 2:48 am

The SM Group’s residential property arm, SM Development Corp., aims to sustain its growth momentum by expanding into medium-rise building development, increasing its nationwide footprint and making more inroads into overseas markets.

The overseas expansion entails not only the establishment of offices in markets with critical mass of prospective overseas Filipino home buyers but also investing in markets with good prospects for residential property development such as China and neighboring Southeast Asian countries, SMDC vice chairman and chief executive officer Henry Sy Jr. said in a briefing on Tuesday.

Sy said SMDC would also broaden its product offering by launching a new residential housing brand priced at P1 million to P1.5 million. This brand is focused on medium-rise buildings catering to families. The pilot project for this will be in Fairview, Quezon City.

Sy said SMDC had also boosted its landbanking and purchasing operations. For this year, P20 billion worth of land in prime locations were acquired. At present, SMDC has an estimated land inventory of 50 hectares in Metro Manila alone.

“These are all in prime locations,” Sy said, adding that SMDC would eventually “cover the whole Philippines.”

In the meantime, SMDC president and chief operating officer Rosaline Qua said the new brand that would soon be unveiled by SMDC would be located a bit farther from central business districts.

Since last year, Qua said SMDC had also started marketing to overseas Filipinos, leading to the growth of its share in this segment to 35 percent this year, from 15 to 18 percent in 2011.

Qua said a lot of the unrecognized revenues from previous sales would be realized in the fourth quarter this year. This will allow SMDC to post a 10-15 percent growth in both net profit and revenue for 2012. She added that the 10-15 percent top-line and bottom-line growth trajectory could be sustained in 2013.

She said demand for SMDC units remained very strong, which would likely allow SMDC to exceed its earlier announced reservation sales goal of P29 billion for the year. As of November, she said the level had already hit P30 billion.

The company has brought 9,400 new residential units to the property market so far this year. This is estimated to reach 14,000 this year.

Qua said at least three projects will be launched next year.

Sy-led SMDC targets OFWs abroad or home for Christmas
by Aya Lowe | Rappler | Tuesday | Posted on 12/11/2012 3:55 PM | Updated 12/12/2012 9:59 AM


HOLIDAY OFFER. Sy-led property firm eyeing buyers from overseas who are home for the holidays. Photo is a screenshot of a page on www.www.smdevelopment.com

MANILA, Philippines - Sy-led property firm SM Development Corp. (SMDC) will aggressively target the overseas Filipino workers (OFW) market both abroad and when they come home for the Christmas holiday.

According to Henry Sy Jr, CEO of SMDC, this move comes as they are seeing more and more OFWs invest their money into property in the Philippines.

“Our peso is getting stronger which means the money OFWs send into the Philippines will be of less value. In order to make sure their money doesn’t keep devaluing they buy property straight away as a form of investment,” explained Sy Jr, son and namesake of the country's richest man, during a media roundtable on Tuesday, December 11.

The company is also expecting a boost in interest during the Christmas period. “This is a time when OFW’s come home and they have a window where they can look at property and buy so we get more inquiries and buys during this period,” said Qua.

OFW’s buying property in the Philippines has become one of the main drivers of the Philippine real estate market recently. According to property consultants from CBRE Philippines, foreigners buying property in the Philippines increased by 61% this 2012.

Sy-led SMDC to target OFW, students with P1-M condo units
by Aya Lowe | Rappler | Tuesday | Posted on 12/11/2012 5:05 PM | Updated 12/12/2012 8:31 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Sy-led property firm SM Developmemnt Corp. (SMDC) will launch a low-cost development in 2013 to meet the demands of overseas Filipino workers (OFW) and those studying in schools in the metro.

According to Henry Sy Jr, CEO of SMDC, the property developer will be launch their new low-cost brand for units that will sell for P1 million to P1.5 million each.

They will be the same average size as other units sold by SMDC at around 20 to 24 square metres. The savings will come in the cheaper land prices and the structure of the buildings which will be low rise.

“We’re saving money on the location and height of the building, a saving which we will be able to pass on to the consumer,” said Sy speaking at a media briefing on Tuesday, December 11.

The locations will be in areas such as Sucat and Pasay, not the central business districts.

“We will be addressing a need. Even at P2 million to P4 million, the average OFW won’t be able to afford it because they have other obligations,” said Rosaline Qua, COO of SMDC.

In 2010, the property developer announced it would be joining the low cost property market with its My Place brand where condominium units would be priced at P1.1 million and below. The projects with an average of 2,000 units per development are located in areas such as Quezon City.

According to Qua, another emerging low cost market is the university student community.

“Instead of living in crowded dorms, parents get units for their children. They choose apartments that are close, safe, and have amenities like swimming pools, gyms, study and lounges. That’s another emerging market we have which we would like to continually mind,” she said.

Expansion plans abroad

The listed developer also has plans to expand into China in 2013. “China is pushing through soon. The paperwork is a little more tedious,” said Sy.

According to Qua, an expansion into China is possible for next year depending on certain regulations and permits. The developer’s retail affiliate, SM Prime Holdings owns property in Xiamen and Chengdu.

Eventually SMDC will look further afield at other ASEAN country’s such as Myanmar and Laos said Sy.

SMDC looks to grow 10-15%

SMDC is targeting to grow by 10% to 15% by 2013. This includes a minimum of 3 launches and the expansions of existing projects.

SMDC has bought P15 billion worth of land this year compared to P9 to 10 billion worth of property bought last ear according to Sy.

The developer currently has a land bank of 50 hectares in Metro Manila in areas such as Makati, Mandaluong and Pasay. Including their land outside of the capital, their total land bank adds up to 130 hectares.

This 2012, SMDC finished the expansion of existing projects and launched an additional two new projects that amounted to P21.9B. These projects include Jazz Tower B, Wind Tower 4, Field Building 4, MPST Tower C, Grace Residences and Breeze Residences.

Reservation performance by the end of September this year yielded P26.5 billion compared to last year’s P17.6 billion for the same period, a 51% growth year-on-year. - Rappler.com

SM to form low-cost housing unit
By Zinnia B. Dela Peña | The Philippine Star | Thursday | Updated December 13, 2012 | 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - SM Development Corp., the residential construction arm of retail tycoon Henry Sy’s SM Investments Corp., will launch a new brand that will cater to the low-end segment of the market in its bid to alleviate the chronic housing backlog in the country.

In a briefing yesterday, SMDC vice chairman and chief executive officer Henry Sy Jr. said the new brand would be affordable to those who want to buy a place of their own or wish to move out of their parents’ houses.

The units will be priced 30 percent lower than the MPlace brand, which sells for a minimum P1.2 million per unit.

Sy said the move is part of efforts to reach a broader market and provide Filipinos with quality homes in prime locations.

Initial sites for projects under the brand would be in Fairview in Quezon City and Sucat, Parañaque.

To ensure a pipeline of new projects, SMDC has acquired P2 billion worth of prime properties, most of which are located in Metro Manila. It is also looking to purchase lots in key provincial cities.

Rosaline Qua, president and chief operating officer of SMDC, pointed out that their business model is what drives people to buy units from the company’s projects. “Our model is to provide Filipinos a home that comes in a whole bundle of amenities that families can enjoy. Since it is SM, it will most likely have a Save More or an SM mall within the vicinity, making it convenient for families,” she said.

For next year, SMDC is looking at a 10 to 15 percent growth in both bottom and top line. Year-to-date reservation sales are now above P30 billion, exceeding its 2012 target of P28 billion to P29 billion.

This year alone, SMDC completed expansion of existing projects and launched additional two new projects translating to 9,403 units valued at P21.9 billion. These projects include Jazz Tower B , Wind Tower 4, Field Bldg 4, MPST Tower C, Grace Residences and Breeze Residences.

Qua said the company has so far sold 39,667 units or 81 percent from the first year of operations until end-September this year.

Sy said SMDC remains interested in expanding overseas, particularly in China and other undeveloped countries in Asia.

He said the family remains upbeat on the long-term outlook of the China property market, which is showing a strong pick up in sales and selling prices.

China is seen to become the largest economy in the world in the next 10 years. It is an attractive market given its massive population and emerging middle class.

The SM Group, through unit SM Prime Holdings, has malls in Xiamen, Jinjiang, Chengdu and Suzhou and is set to open another one in Chongqing before the end of the year, its fifth in China. It is targeting a shopping center in China every year and plans to accelerate this by opening two beginning 2014, which includes its biggest ever mall located in Tianjin.

SM Prime owns land around its malls, suitable for residential condominiums. The group may employ the same strategy as SMDC’s, which builds apartments near SM Prime’s malls in the Philippines.

Question lang, maganda ba ang location ng Grace residences sa the fort? I mean accessible ba siya in terms of public transport and shops? Gano siya kalayo sa Bonifacio High Street and Market Market?

Sorry madaming tanong. I'm overseas and an agent is trying to sell a unit. Nakakenganyo ang price but I'm not sure kung anong drawback kung bakit sobrang mura nya compared to the other pre-selling units at the fort.
