1920's:     Casa Ayala's (House of Ayala) first residential sales were transacted: small lots near the old Meralco carbarn at the southern end of Ayala Bridge in the heart of Manila.  This property is smack in the middle of the then prime districts of Ermita, San Miguel (Malacanang's location), Quiapo, and Sta.

Ayala Land's Residential Business was formally organized as a strategic business unit in 2005, to emphasize the company's focus on residential construction, an Ayala core business line since the 1920s.

In succeeding decades, many other premier developments followed: Ayala Heights, Ayala Westgrove Heights, Ayala Greenfield Estates to name a few. As innovators, Ayala Land's Residential Business has likewise distinguished itself in vertical and multi-family developments: the premier One Serendra in Bonifacio Global City, and the gilt-edged The Residences at Greenbelt in the heart of the Greenbelt commercial center.

Since then, Ayala has prevailed and risen to a commanding presence in residential markets.

Integrity, consistency of results and uncompromised commitment to quality are the foundations for the trust that Ayala Land developments are valued for.
And it is through strict adherence to these principles that we intend to build real estate developments with value that endure and enhance over time.

We believe that it is the duty of
a real estate development company, not just to build residential infrastructures but more than that, to nourish communities that will thrive through time. We strive to sustain communities that reflect the dreams and aspirations of the people who build them and those who live and work in them.

The path ahead of us is clear - create intuitively designed residential developments for three distinct market segments with designs that mix functionality with style. From distinctive communities to affordable homes, from luxury condominiums to middle-income housing developments, Ayala Land homes are testaments to our commitment in enhancing the lives of Filipinos.
