English translation:air rights over the fifth floor
Explanation:
air rights (el derecho de vuelo, o "el vuelo", se dice en España) refer to the right to built on top of the existing or planned construction, i.e. on top of the 5th floor, by cantilevering, adding new floors, enclosing flat terraces and thus raising the roof or making the building taller.

There are many examples of air rights and "vuelo" in the Internet.
"Los aires del quinto piso" is a peculiar way to refer to "el vuelo", but I would bet it refers to the same thing.
