    The perks of city living draws young professionals to call the city home: accessibility to work, being a stone’s throw away from commercial, recreation and leisure destinations, and the opportunity to check out diverse shopping and dining options when the mood calls for it.

    However, these are also the main reasons why it’s hard for them to do so. All this convenience and practicality comes at a price. Add to that the demands of today’s workplace that takes away time to relax, and you get a recipe for ruining one’s work-life balance.

    One way of helping them manage their work-life balance is by being able to call the city home—a place where they can easily retreat to after a hard day’s work without having to trudge through hours of traffic.

    This is where Ayala Land Inc.’s pioneering vision behind The FLATS comes in. The Flats offers innovative and affordable co-living spaces that cater to young urban professionals.

    “There’s something very aspirational about living in the middle of a thriving city like Makati. And our latest project hopes to make this ideal accessible to everyone. Makati is home to a very diverse set of professionals—including young ones who are just starting out, typically from the fast growing BPO industry, as well as other corporate and institutional locators,” explains Ms. Shiella Aguilar, Project Development Manager of Ayala Land’s Strategic Land Bank Management Group.

    She adds, “To serve the new breed of office workers, we created the concept which breaks out of the model of a typical Ayala Land product. It is the company’s first ‘residential for lease only’ development and is expected to raise the bar on co-living given the combined best practices from the residential, retail, office and hotel businesses.”

    The FLATS would allow for young professionals who are just starting out to live right at the heart of the city. Designed to provide co-living accommodations, employees now have the option to enjoy living near work, avoiding lengthy daily commutes and enjoying all the benefits of urban living.

    The first building is set to rise at Amorsolo corner Dela Rosa St. in Makati. It will have 15 storeys with 22-square-meter residential units that can accommodate at most four occupants.

    It will be located a few steps away from the Dela Rosa Walkway, making it conducive for residents to walk to their place of work. It will also be near Ayala Land’s upcoming two-tower mixed-use development that will house multinational and BPO offices, a 10,000-square-meter retail podium devoted to dining and shopping destinations, as well as the 312-room Seda Hotel.

    There will be a total of 196 rooms and 728 beds. Each room is thoughtfully designed to offer built-in beds, workstations and ample storage, as well as a kitchen and toilet/bathroom.

    The building is internet and cable ready and will also provide ample security, key card access for residents, basic retail amenities such as laundry shops, a water refilling station, and a convenience store at the ground floor.

    It’s an affordable product that is benchmarked on the Ayala Land brand, allowing young professionals to enjoy comforts such as having a safe and secure environment and convenient access to the city and its amenities.

    The Flats will also be offered in other estates of Ayala Land.

    This is a press release from Ayala Land.
