Makati is a city best enjoyed from the street: it’s filled with surprises at every corner, with Ayala Avenue providing the soundtrack to your discovery. But for the uninitiated, there is more than one way to experience Makati living—from above. Imagine being able to see the sun rising over lush Urdaneta landscaping from one window, and seeing Makati’s night skyline come alive as the sun sets in another. While there will only be a handful of places which give you rich 270-degree views of the CBD, The Estate Makati lets you enjoy this and more, from the comfort of your own home.
