5 Knock Out and Interesting Reasons Why Lee Min Ho is A Certified ‘Good Guy’

12:21:00 PM


SM Development Corporation (SMDC) has always been committed to providing top-quality living spaces to its clients, and they have long held the motto "Home of the Good Guys." For them, this phrase encapsulates their values and principles as a leading property developer in the Philippines. So when it came time to search for a brand ambassador to represent the company, it was important that they choose someone who embodied these same values.

After careful consideration, SMDC found the perfect candidate in Lee Min Ho, a beloved South Korean actor and heartthrob. As a prominent figure in the Hallyu wave (the global popularity of Korean entertainment and culture), Lee Min Ho has a massive following that transcends borders and cultures. But it's not just his good looks and talent that won SMDC over; it's his reputation as a genuinely good person.

Here are the five (5) interesting reasons why Lee Min Ho is A Certified ‘Good Guy’ for SMDC.

A philanthropist who set up a donation platform to champion the causes closest to his heart

In 2014, Lee Min Ho founded PROMIZ, a donation platform centered on his core advocacies – children, animals, and the environment. Purchasing products through this platform allows individuals to donate to various charitable causes and organizations, such as disaster relief efforts, children's welfare, and environmental conservation.

Through PROMIZ, the actor aims to encourage people in making a positive impact on the world, inspire others to take action, and make a difference in their communities. PROMIZ has received widespread recognition for its impact.

Family is at the center of his life 

Lee Min Ho is known to speak lovingly about his family. Asked what he likes to do for a good time, he answered, “I spend quality time with my dear family, friends, and loved ones whenever I want to have a good time.”

He hangs out with family, friends, and staff. His values, known for taking good care of the people around him, reflect the education and personality he received while growing up, which keeps him grounded and focused on what truly matters in life.

Humble and passionate about his work

Lee Min Ho has been a prominent figure in the entertainment industry for many years, having starred in many drama and movie projects. Even with all that fame and success, he is praised for his work ethic, professionalism, and consideration towards others by his co-stars and production staff.

Lee Min Ho is known for his humility, and for being hard-working. Even in his worldwide stardom, he is grounded and focused on his craft, ever striving to improve his performance and create a positive atmosphere on set.

A beacon of hope and motivation

Acting was not always Lee Min Ho’s calling. During his elementary school years, he had a passion for soccer, and has dreamed of becoming a professional player. However, when he suffered a bad injury, he had to give up his athletic pursuits.

This setback led him to explore acting during his second year in high school, which was uncovered to be his true calling. He worked hard to hone his craft, and has, since, become one of the most popular and respected actors in the industry.

Values the unwavering support of his fans

Lee Min Ho has often said that his fans are a source of motivation and inspiration for him, and that he is grateful for their support and love. He has said that his fans' unwavering support has been a driving force in his caree,r and that he will continue to work hard to repay their love and loyalty.

In one fan meeting, he said, "I am always thinking about how I can pay back the love I receive from my fans. I am who I am today because of my fans." He has also spoken about how much he enjoys interacting with his fans and making them happy.


So, what do you think of this?

A Beacon in the City of Stars: Why Glam Residences Is Quezon City’s Brightest Investment

10:38:00 PM


Today, we will be sharing a story or rather a press release from SMDC about its Glam Residences. It is said that the residence is a beacon in the City of Stars, Quezon City's brightest investment. So, read more about the story to know why it is considered as the city's brightest investment.

A rosy outlook is seen in the real estate sector as the Philippine economy enters a period of more robust level of activity. While the pandemic inevitably reshaped the real estate landscape in terms of new buyer considerations and product formats, it remains the most reliable store of value for those looking to protect and grow their money.

Opportunities certainly come plenty with the economic rebound, improved business and consumer confidence, and increasing overseas Filipino workers’ remittances. For the residential sector, particularly for the Metro Manila market, none can deliver a more reliable value proposition like SM Development Corporation (SMDC)’s Glam Residences. Yet what makes this dazzling high-rise development one of the brightest stars in Quezon City, and why is it the wisest choice for those looking to place their money in real estate?

The center of all action
Quezon City is not just dubbed as the “City of Stars” because of the many disciples of art and players in the entertainment and media industry it houses. It’s Metro Manila’s biggest city in terms of landmass, and the country’s most distinguished metropolis in terms of earnings.


Such a distinction serves as a clear reflection of the city’s bustling commercial and industrial hubs. With Glam Residences being strategically placed along EDSA and at the city’s illustrious Triangle Park – a central business district the World Bank refers to as “the center of gravity of commercial developments in Metro Manila in the coming years” – residents will be able to enjoy the most luxurious conveniences Quezon City can provide. From a wide selection of shopping malls, restaurants, parks, and hotels, to renowned medical centers, to essential government offices, and strategic transport hubs – everything one can ask for will always be within reach at Glam Residences. The development has its own built-in commercial complex too, which makes your day-to-day all the more convenient.

Of course, benefits that come with such a prime location will not just be enjoyed by residents, but astute investors who see today as the most opportune time to maximize potential. With soon-to-be-completed infrastructure projects such as the MRT Line 7, the North Triangle Common Station, and the Mega Manila Subway enhancing not just connectivity but also property values, maximum returns, without a doubt, await you at Glam Residences.

Tres chic living
More than just unparalleled accessibility, the key element behind the luster Glam Residences emits is the high life it offers. Apart from the champagne gold hues and a beautiful minimalist design this T-shaped tower holds, Glam Residences carries a breadth of glamorous amenities within.

Lounges, a fitness gym, a lap pool, a jacuzzi, and a breathtaking view of the Metro Manila skyline at the rooftop sunset bar on the 45th floor make it the place to be for career-driven professionals who wish to enjoy life’s best indulgences. The children’s pool and outdoor playspace, on the other hand, make it ideal for young, cosmopolitan families seeking a home to establish their roots in.

Whoever you are, whatever your aspirations may be, a Glam Residences address is a celebration of the greater and grander things you have yet to accomplish in your life.


A glimmer that lasts
With all the bells and whistles Glam Residences comes with, asking yourself whether it’s future-ready and future-proof is a fair question. For those who are curious, the answers may be more interesting than you expect.

A recent Santos Knight Frank (SKF) study revealed that the city remains ideal for homebuyers who prefer to be at the center of everything. With the coveted low-carbon footprint lifestyle made affordable at SMDC, you not only get to minimize your environmental impact, but also ensure your family’s health stays in its prime.

SMDC has, time and time, proven themselves resolute in their commitment to take care of their communities. The reigning back-to-back PropertyGuru Property Philippines Awards “Best Developer” has been building complete, well-integrated communities, long before the pandemic put a premium on convenience and accessibility.

An investment at SMDC helps you attain financial stability. End-to-end property management and leasing management services come together to keep your property’s value growing in more ways than one.

With a future-forward approach like that of SMDC, and an exceptionally livable cityscape like Quezon City’s, you’re assured that the glimmer Glam Residences has is one that’s here to last.

SMDC: Building places Filipinos can call home

10:04:00 PM


A home, to which one can call their own, is one of the most fundamental human needs for survival. In building one’s family, buying housing or investing in property is often a crucial discussion that takes into consideration price, location, amenities and even the environment as these all impact the way people and families live and grow and how communities thrive in the long-run.

Recently, the many changes brought by the COVID-19 pandemic has caused Filipinos to reassess the way they live, work and reside. The topic on home ownership and residential space has only become much more prominent as its impact towards one’s physical, social and emotional wellbeing was emphasized when companies shifted to work-from-home setups and schools introduced blended learning. It has become likely that up and coming homeowners are looking for new and affordable housing that responds to the new realities of school and work, as well as a healthier and more self-sufficient lifestyle.

For leading real estate developer SM Development Corporation (SMDC), the residential arm of SM Prime Holdings, satisfying personal needs and meeting basic survival for the homeowners of today can be done through meaningful and strategic planning and property development.

Over the years, SMDC has been continuously redefining residential spaces to bring accessibility, convenience, function, style and sustainability in the face of evolving trends and lifestyle changes—assuring prospective buyers of the great value that SMDC properties offer.

This means presenting a range of residences located in prime urban and suburban communities, conveniently situated near major road networks and transportation hubs, and designed to reflect SM’s commitment to luxurious urban living. SMDC properties bring commercial retail shops, entertainment venues, banks and leisure facilities closer to residents against a backdrop of lush and walkable spaces. Such open spaces encourage homeowners to dwell outside and take a break from the isolation that has become a norm lately, and allow residents to safely interact with their neighbors. These spaces also provide amenities that promote a healthy lifestyle among the residents.

Across the available properties, prospect homeowners are able to choose their housing type to fit their own or their family’s needs and functions with units ranging from studio rooms to deluxe two-bedroom suites. On top of being able to customize their living spaces, state-of-the-art facilities such as 24-hour security and CCTV system, fire alarm system, numerous WIFI-ready zones and standby generator set ensures continuous function and prime livability.

However, SMDC’s promise not only pertains to providing a greater quality of life, but to also have its communities take an integral role in their commitment towards sustainability. SMDC aims to promote many green living practices by designing walkable and transport-friendly developments, introducing energy-saving and eco-friendly green buildings and encouraging effective waste management programs among residents. For the property developer, homes are seen as a legacy for future generations and should be built for sustainability and for ease in future modification.


With developments still ongoing and more projects in the pipeline, SMDC allows homebuyers the opportunity to have the home of their choice. Through its affordable investment and flexible payment options, new families or young millennials will be able to live independently in communities that cater to their specific needs.

With its ability to empathize and understand current housing needs while having the foresight to address evolving requirements, SMDC continues to create sustainable and resilient living spaces for Filipinos to call their own.

SMDC Air Residence Brings A Premium Lifestyle, Luxury within your reach

1:03:00 AM

Luxury and a premium lifestyle only come from one of the best who offers life at its best.  

When you reach a certain level of success in life, many expect for it to reflect in one’s lifestyle — from the clothes and accessories, you wear to the car you drive, and ultimately, to the address that you live in.

For many, Makati City is still the premium address of choice because of the allure of city living, and easy access to fancy restaurants and luxury retail establishments.

Amidst the tall buildings off Ayala Avenue is Air Residences, a modern residential high-rise developed by SM Development Corporation (SMDC), that offers opulent comfort with signature amenities that bring you to the doorstep of success.

A world-class development like no other

Air Residences was awarded the Best High-end Condo Interior Design at the 7th Philippine Property Awards last year and the Best High-rise Condo Interior Design (Philippines) at the 2019 Asia Property Awards.

The accolades truly show as soon as you enter its doors. The grand lobby’s high ceiling, dark-colored tiled floors, mood lighting fixtures, and extravagant furnishings all come together to remind you of luxury hotels around the world.

Nothing wraps up this hotel-like experience more than the cordial welcome of the doorman and the hospitality of the receptionist. The elegant furnishings and lounges are perfect not just for receiving guests or for waiting for a ride to your next meeting, but for locking in a lasting first impression on those who matter.

A lifestyle that propels your dreams

Find work-life balance and retreat to the comfort of the two-level amenity deck that’s only a few steps away from your doorstep — from sophisticated pavilions and terraces where you can simply relax, to lush gardens and inviting swimming pools where you can host celebrations with family and friends.

Push your limits and reach your maximum capacity in the many fitness amenities, where much-deserved workout sessions await you. There’s also a jogging trail, as well, surrounded by beautiful landscaping, where you can go for energizing runs whenever you need one. For days that you need to find peace, there is a yoga lawn to allow you to immerse yourself into focused and quiet workouts. However, if you feel like letting loose, there’s a game alley that provides unlimited bonding opportunities over table tennis, billiards, and more.

Each unit is designed for the wants and needs of an urban professional. Air Residences has 59 floors offering various types of units to fit both the space and budget that’s right for you — from studio units to one and two-bedroom units, all with spectacular views of the city and intricate details that spell elegance and sophistication.

No better time to invest than now

First-class amenities paired with a distinct location, and its proximity to Makati’s future subway system are what makes this property a sound investment. Whether you plan to make it your home, or to lease it out for extra income, great capital appreciation awaits you, either way, considering the Philippine property market steadily improving this year.

A recent Colliers Philippines report said there is foreseen growth in the housing sector in 2022. “We see the economic expansion supporting demand in the residential sector.” The report said the rental market is also seen to recover in the next 12 months, with the steady influx of foreign professionals, and with more companies welcoming back their employees.

This year sees the completion of various government infrastructure projects, which give property developments like Air Residences, strategically located close to the planned Makati subway, not just added convenience, but added investment benefits for its residents.

For those who might want to lease out their units, SMDC has made it easier for interested buyers through a worry-free leasing experience with SMDC Prime Key Leasing.

The best part is that these are all within your reach — right here, right now. Air Residences is a ready-for-occupancy (RFO) property, which means you can move in as soon as the paperwork is settled. With SMDC’s Early Occupancy Program (EOP), one can start enjoying the benefits of living at Air Residences with simply a 5% downpayment.
