Rounding up an urban retreat: SMDC launches The Strip at Lush Residences

Rounding up an urban retreat: SMDC launches The Strip at Lush Residences

Completeness is one of the most sought-after markers of an ideal home. For today’s property seekers, a complete development is characterized by its access both to health and wellness features, and essential establishments within walking distance — inherently maximizing livability, efficiency, and convenience in daily living.

Awarded a special recognition in “ESG” or Environmental, Social, and Governance standards at the 10th PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards, SM Development Corporation (SMDC) is at the forefront of building complete, sustainable, and master-planned communities across the country. SMDC launched The Strip at Lush Residences last Thursday, October 27 — making strides in cosmopolitan dwellings that provide comfortable, safe, secure, and green environments.

SMDC pioneered integrated living in the Philippines and has continued to incorporate thriving retail environments into their master-planned developments since. Leading the ceremonial ribbon cutting for The Strip at Lush Residences are (L-R): Mr. Martin Sy, Project Development Manager, SMDC; Ms. Lei Moro, Business Development Senior Manager, Alfamart Trading Philippines Inc; Mr. Sandro Vicente Javier, Vice President – Project Development, SMDC; Rev. Father Moises Eduardo Ciego; Brgy. Secretary Jerry Guanco, Brgy. San Antonio, Makati City; Mr. Harvey Ong, Chief Operating Officer, Alfamart Trading Philippines; Mr. Royston Cabunag, Assistant Vice President – Retail Projects, SM Supermalls

A tight-knit community awaits

Appetite for well-being amenities and low-density environments have remained strong amongst local residential buyers, a recent Santos Knight Frank study says. Corroborating this is a Lamudi Philippines report that shows fitness amenities, open spaces, gardens, and high-speed broadband connectivity have grown in demand as people searched for homes that keep them healthy, active, and connected in more ways than one.

Breathing life into a dynamic, modern, urban sprawl, Lush Residences is a nature-inspired enclave located north of Ayala Avenue in Makati City. The one-tower, high-rise development was designed to be a respite where upwardly mobile Filipinos could enjoy the relaxing and healing effect of greenery. For one, its first five floors are wrapped in a living, breathing green wall.

Regardless if you’re a sunset or a sunrise kind of person, the view never gets old here at Lush Residences. Enjoy heartfelt conversations with your loved ones, or savor the changing colors of the cityscape in this masterfully-designed outdoor lounge.

However compact, Lush Residences does not fall short in terms of lifestyle offerings. Residents may relish a lazy dip in the water at the adult pool, go for an invigorating workout at the full-equipped indoor gym, or spend a nice afternoon catching up with friends at the ‘Lush Podium Garden.’

To strengthen community ties, a kiddie pool and a playground are available for children to come together. The residential lounge is a good place to relax and enjoy a Wi-Fi ready ambiance, and the function room is a generous expanse to celebrate life’s milestones in. The highlight, however, is the sky garden — a rooftop terrace with the lushest of landscapes. Host an outdoor party or have an intimate night cap whilst gazing over the Makati skyline. All these little joys, right within your backyard.

A flourishing life in a Makati

Makati continues to have an irresistible pull for homebuyers. Home to Metro Manila’s well known and best-kept career and lifestyle offerings, Makati city encompasses all things tasteful, illustrious, and progressive. Living here, therefore, lends a quality of life everyone seeks for. 

One especially relevant attribute of Makati nowadays is walkability. Intricately-connected bridges and pathways allow ease of mobility for pedestrians, and up-and-coming locales like those of Kamagong Street and Bagtikan Street which Lush Residences sits in the corner of put individuals in a holistic ecosystem.

Premier shopping destinations, parks, museums, art galleries, cultural centers, event spaces, government offices, and educational and medical institutions are all effortlessly reachable with Lush Residences address.
