Pandemic-proof your address: Invest in a home that ‘lights’ up your life

Pandemic-proof your address: Invest in a home that ‘lights’ up your life

How do you feel about this story?


The gradual shift to the new normal paves the way for the unwelcome return of congested streets. For members of the workforce, this would mean spending more time on the road, and having less time to do the things that they love. Fortunately, such bleak forecasts can easily be managed by making the right — and light — real estate investment.

Staying true to SM Development Corporation (SMDC)’s vision of building sustainable communities for every Filipino, Light 2 Residences is a fast-rising beacon of modern urban living in the EDSA-Mandaluyong area. The centrally located high-rise development places its residents within walking distance to the most convenient means of transportation, as well as a vibrant selection of shopping, dining, and recreational destinations, and all that are deemed essential for living ‘the good life.’


No car, no problem  

Real estate expert, Santos Knight Frank, has noted that a cosmopolitan lifestyle continues to remain favored, with 33% of local respondents of their recent Global Buyer Survey saying that the city is still the preferred location for homes. More so, 10% prefer to reside in areas that are walking distance to their workplace, while 11% prefer to be close to restaurants, gyms, retail, and cultural amenities.

Built at the heart of a booming commercial area, Light 2 Residences makes sure that all these conveniences you need are no more than a few steps away. The master-planned development, for one, has a direct connection to the EDSA-Boni MRT-3 station, and is close to one of the projected stations of the future Mega Manila Subway. This promises convenient access to Quezon City, Parañaque City, and everything in between — all without having to start your engines.

It also has its own mall integrated into the development and connected to the existing Light Mall. This means you can easily complete your grocery run, shop for necessities, visit the bank, pay bills and complete errands – utmost convenience just a short elevator ride away. There’s even a cinema, where you can elevate those otherwise basic movie nights into real blockbuster experiences.


Live in the center of the metro’s central business districts

Located mere minutes away from major business centers, Light 2 Residences is an ideal base for those who work in the Ortigas Central Business District or even the Makati Central Business District — both of which are just an MRT ride away.

It’s also no more than a short drive away from Bonifacio Global City, Capitol Commons, Poblacion, and the Rockwell area. All together, such proximity can help you save not just on gas and fare, but also on travel time that you can now devote to pursuits that actually matter.

Exercise your right to a healthy lifestyle the ‘light’ way

Now more than ever, health is definitely wealth. This is reflected in the Santos Knight Frank study, which discusses how the pandemic has caused a shift in buyers’ preference when it comes to residential property. Health and wellness-related features are starting to command greater importance, with 17% of local respondents preferring homes with proximity to green spaces.

Ever responsive to the needs of Filipinos, SMDC continues to be a trailblazer in the real estate industry with developments geared towards addressing these new home considerations. This is why Light 2 Residences presents a selection of amenities for those wanting to be in the pink of health. These include an indoor gym and fitness studio, an outdoor gym and yoga deck, and even table tennis courts. There’s even a pool where you can take a dip after a hard day’s work.

The piece de resistance, however, is the building’s Private Urban Park. Almost a hectare in size, this exclusive outdoor park comes complete with lush gardens where you and your family can hang out; as well as paths where you can jog, run, and ultimately decompress.


Light up your life with luxury

Spacious and well thought-of, Light 2 Residences is also an architectural marvel that exudes luxury in every corner — from its grand lobby’s interlude of marble, wood and bespoke lighting and furniture, to the spacious and well-appointed residential units, all the way up to its function rooms and common areas.


This coveted address will certainly brighten up your life in the metro, without having to break the bank, as SMDC offers affordable prices and convenient payment options. Light 2 Residences also comes with 24/7 security and is professionally managed to ensure that the upkeep and value of your real estate investment remains excellent, even in the years to come.

Centrally located, affordable and built around the idea of living a good life, Light 2 Residences, is, indeed, a testament to SMDC’s commitment to developing homes that Filipinos deserve — one that you can soon enjoy from your own slice of EDSA’s glittering skyline.
