Air Residences:Providing an air of comfort in a busy city

Residents need not worry about being isolated because everything they need is just a step away in Air Mall, the built-in commercial development within Air Residences.

Makati has always been a place desired by many — whether to work or to live. As the city where the primary financial district sits — with its glittering hotels and towering condominiums for young professionals and big bosses alike — Makati is the country’s version of Manhattan, Tokyo or London. The pizzazz and sophistication in the air are almost tangible in this vibrant and pulsating city.

In the heart of the financial district is the uber prime spot of Ayala Avenue, where land values have skyrocketed since decades past, and where there’s hardly any available space anymore for both office and residential.

But those who want to own a piece of Makati shouldn’t throw in the towel just yet.

You just might have your last chance, thanks to SMDC’s Air Residences in Makati, just a stone’s throw away from the financial hub.

Air Residences is strategically located right off Ayala Avenue, bringing residents right at the doorstep of success.

The location, without a doubt, provides an impressive value proposition — within the financial district, but away from the maddening crowd. You’re in the district but not in the congested part.

As the bustling Ayala is Makati’s pulsating heart, Air Residences just off the tip of the busy avenue is where you can get some air.


Air Residences, set for completion and turnover this year, sits on an 8,056 sqm lot behind the Makati Fire Station and Post Office. It is a one-tower, 59-story development, with a bi-level amenity area.

The external landscape reflects an elite, luxurious and thoughtfully planned environment, designed by ALN (Adrian L. Norman Limited), a Hong Kong-based firm that is renowned in the fields of landscape architecture, urban design and master-planning.

The residential units reflect attainable luxury, offering spacious and meticulously planned living areas, surrounded by world-class amenities. All these, without having to break the bank. In fact, to sweeten the deal, a limited pay term of P31,000 a month for 24 months as downpayment, makes Air Residences a smart real estate investment.


Today, the units are ripe for the picking and to anyone seeing a future in Makati, this has got to be your best choice in this time when there’s hardly any space left available in the Central Business District’s prime areas.

With Air Residences, SMDC lives up to its promise of enabling Filipinos to “live the good life.”

This is possible with that feeling of security, getting a sense of comfortable conviviality, and the privilege to experience life’s little luxuries. 

How does one experience the good life in Air Residences? It starts right at the door.

When you enter the spacious hotel-like lobby of Air Residences, you are cordially welcomed by the door man. You are mesmerized by the interiors that exude luxurious living, and remind you of posh five-star hotels in Hong Kong, London and New York: the large, comfortable sofas, high ceilings, and the dark shiny floors that contrast and reflect the sparkly lights from the mod lighting fixtures. 

Each residential unit is semi-furnished with a range hood, refrigerator, cooktop, microwave and air-conditioning unit, and is decked with premium finishes like a marble kitchen countertop, and exquisite tiles that stretch the entire living area. The unit details spell luxury, in a space that is practical and ready to be occupied as soon as it’s turned over.


Residents need not worry about being isolated because everything they need is just a step away in Air Mall, the built-in commercial development within Air Residences.

World-renowned architecture firm Arquitectonica, the Florida-headquartered firm behind Miami’s Brickell City Centre and the dynamic SM Mall of Asia Complex, designed the bi-level mall, conveniently located right at the ground floor of the development.


Residents will feel like they’re eternally billeted in a world-class hotel with the posh amenities of Air Residences — two sprawling floors for different kinds of leisure activities for all ages.

On the seventh floor is a reflective pool, seating alcoves, a pool table, billiards for the beginners and masters alike, table tennis for those who are challenged by the high-speed ball game, gaming alley for those who don’t want to sweat too much, a kid’s playground for the young ones, and a sports and yoga terrace for those who just want to flex some muscles or do some downward dog.

Just above, on the eight floor, are the expansive pool options — there’s a leisure and lap pool, a pool island, and a pool pavilion with a sun deck. For those who want to host some parties, a barbecue terrace that looks out to the landscaped garden areas, is dotted with lounges where one can pass time.

Kids will also have their share of the amenity area, with a play pool and a playground.


The awards received by Air Residences are an indication that the development is indeed world-class.

It has bagged the Best High-end Condo Interior Design at the 7th Philippine Property Awards last year and Best High-rise Condo Interior Design (Philippines) for the 2019 Asia Property Awards.

It was also highly commended for both Best High-end Condo Development and Best High-end Condo Architectural Design.

However, what makes Air Residences a true winning investment are the strong returns enjoyed by the investors. Since it was launched in 2014, the development has listed a compounded annual growth rate of 14 percent, offering a compelling investment proposition.   


With the air of sophistication, and the comfort and convenience that Air Residences provides, this development will surely fit both expats and locals alike, whether as a place to live or as an investment asset. Air Residences will not disappoint.

The timing of this development is likewise impeccable as it comes ahead of the Makati Subway Project. The flagship transportation system will have 10 stations, including one right by the Makati Fire Station, a stone’s throw away from Air Residences.

The proposed subway would connect key points in Makati such as the heart of the Central Business District along Ayala Avenue, the Makati City Hall, the Poblacion Heritage Site, the University of Makati, Ospital ng Makati and the other new business districts within the city.


In the bustling and glittering City of Makati, Air Residences certainly fits in, but with its luxurious interiors, well-appointed amenities, wide-open spaces and luxurious landscape, it elevates city-living several notches higher, as it provides its residents that breath of fresh air — exactly what one needs in a 24/7 pulsating urban district.
