Barangay Carmona is a mainly residential area with a small population. However, with the introduction of Circuit Makati (the former Sta. Ana Racetrack) the area will become a very popular entertainment district which will vastly increase the number of people who will want to live in the area. Already, new high-rise buildings are being built and so expect the population to increase rapidy over the next few years.

Renting in Carmona
The living conditions in Carmona is good, with its small population. However, with the current development plans and constructiono buildings, the streets may busy at times. But the barangay is not as congested as other places in Makati. You can choose from a good number of apartments and townhouses. Your monthly rental budget could range anywhere from one thousand pesos and much higher for the new apartments.
Carmona is named after a Filipino soldier, Isidro Carmona, who led a number of revolutions against the Spanish colonizers. The barangay started as a small community unit of Barangay Tejeros in the 1950’s. Carmona officially earned its barangay status through the efforts of councilors and captains E. San Pascual and Miling Mangahas during the early 1960’s.
