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 Malacañang Palace on 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. Then came, The Palisades, 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. 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 neighbourhood theory.
