    the balcony

    Which of these are correct?

    Is the balcony of your apartment facing the Makati or Mandaluyong side (of the building)?
    Is the balcony of your apartment directed to/at the Makati or Mandaluyong side (of the building)?
    Is the balcony of your apartment located on/at the Makati or Mandaluyong side (of the building)?

    Additional question: Can "the balcony of your apartment" be shortened to "your apartment's balcony"?

    "Your apartment's balcony" is fine. In fact, it's better.

    On the X side works best.

    So, you mean "on the X side" without "located"?

    "Is your apartment's balcony on the X or Y side of the building?"
