Light Residences is located at the middlemost portion of the EDSA expanse, exactly along the thoroughfare corner Madison Street in Mandaluyong City. This development project is situated between two established business districts – Makati and Ortigas City.

The project is a mixed-use type of residential building that offers commercial spaces on the first two floors, two-level parking lots and residential units for the succeeding floor levels. The two-level podiums serves amenities for residential use, consisting of lush greens and pools that are open for its array of residential units overlooking the area.

This high-rise condominium development is composed of three towers rising from a five-storey podium. The base contains a mini mall with a supermarket, two 200-seater cinema screens, retail and commercial establishments. The residential units are not just designed with proper space allocation but are also oriented to promote better view corridors, daylight and natural ventilation.  

The design of the front-facing, inducing façade on the five-level podium, composed of rectilinear forms with varying depths, is derived from the main inspiration for Light Residences, which is to capture the ecstatic feel of the immersive metropolis. And the sharp elevation of the towers makes it a monumental gateway into the city.
