Side Background

St. Rafael Development Corporation

St. Rafael Development Corporation (SRDC) from its very beginning has made exceptional housing developments to the Filipino people through the company's guiding principle of "Building communities.Transforming lives.For the Greater Glory of God". Proof to this excellence is the citation of an Outstanding Developer for Visayas - Bicol Region under the Big Developer Category on the very first Kabalikat sa Pabahay Awards of the Home Development Mutual Fund given at the MalacañangPalace last December 17, 2003. The company started out in the City of Smiles, Bacolod with its first project, the Celine Homes. It is a social housing project jointly developed by the City of Bacolod as the landowner. It has total of 2,050 plus housing units with complete amenities such as swimming pool, water distribution systems, parks and playgrounds. Then came, The Palisades, the only fully landscaped residential development in the Philippines. The landscaping was conceptualized and planned by Arch. Ildefonso P. Santos, the father of Philippine Landscape Architecture. It is a themed Southern California community with only 60% of the total area made into saleable lots. It has a relaxed environment and developed to become a slow-paced community where premium is given for serenity and quietness. It is not a residential development with landscaping but rather a landscaped land with residential lots. The Palisades is also in BacolodCity. And the latest addition to the SRDC family projects is The Providence, the first and only first class mass housing project in Iloilo.or perhaps in the Philippines. This is a subdivision planned with the concept of New Urbanism where everything is designed to conform to a neighborhood theory.
