SMDC Sands Residences Is Shaping Up to be a Luxurious Waterfront Investment


SMDC is leveling up its portfolio once again with its latest project along Roxas Boulevard. After Breeze Residences and Coast Residences, the development giant is adding another luxurious waterfront home to Manila, this time through its upcoming 51-storey Sands Residences.

According to Knight Frank’s Global Waterfront Report, the value of prime waterfront properties is on average 40 percent higher than inland properties. Aspiring homeowners and investors aren’t just looking for large spaces—they’re seeking properties with true value for money.

Enter Sands, which will be accessible to SLEX, NAIA, Mall of Asia, and even the Makati central business district. The hotel-like building will boast a grand lobby, commercial establishments at The Shops, an indoor social space called The Bar, and a Grand Sunset Lounge facing Manila Bay. The Sands is set to be one of SMDC’s most prestigious establishments to date, and after the success of its current projects, it’s clearly a worthy investment whether you’re looking for a home or looking for a property to beef up your portfolio and earn passive income.
