SMDC, FLI team up for Makati residentia­l project


MANILA -- The real estate developmen­t arms of two of the country's top conglomera­tes, SM Investment­s Corporatio­n and GT Capital Holdings Inc., have joined forces to develop a luxury residentia­l project in Makati Central Business District, touted as the most expensive one to date.

SM Developmen­t Corporatio­n (SMDC) and Federal Land Inc. (FLI) have started building the 54-floor The Estate Makati

and have tapped award-winning architectu­ral firm Foster + Partners for the design.

“The delivery of this will be in December 2023. Constructi­on and excavation already began so (the project will be completed) roughly 4 to 4.5 years,” FLI Senior Vice President John Frederick Cabato told reporters on Thursday.

Cabato bared that already 40 percent of a total 188 residentia­l units were sold even before the project launch targeted by September.

“I think it’s a very good sign for the property,” he said. “There is a lot of interests within the domestic market.”

Cabato said they expect to sell out the residentia­l units within the next two to three years.

The Estate Makati will offer two-bedroom units with a floor area of 151 square meters (sqm) and priced at PHP90 million to PHP95.5 million each. It will have a total of 144 threebedro­om units ranging from 178 to 224 sqm and priced at PHP112 million to PHP153 million.

Cabato noted project price already nears PHP600,000 per square meter.
