The past two years have drastically altered the world as we once knew it. It ushered in the advent of hybrid living for work, play, and learning. As we begin to settle into the next normal, pleasures of urban life are once again within reach. After the long wait, people are now starting to reconnect with loved ones past the walls of their homes. The fine art of wining and dining are in full swing, and the flavors are extra delicious following a long hiatus. Beloved retail and leisure destinations are bustling with activity. Children are finally stepping out to be among classmates, cousins, friends, and teachers. We are living life again. This time, more fully and with renewed verve and vigor.
Where modern living is concerned, nothing can quite compare to the convenience, accessibility, sophistication, and variety that Makati city has to offer. Now more than ever, urbanites are fully enjoying the benefits of being a stone’s throw away from all the action. Meeting up with loved ones is not just easier–it also allows us to truly cherish every moment. Regardless of profession, the value in returning to the workspace without worrying about the long commute or travel time is undeniable. It allows us to show up each day filled with a sense of purpose, focus, and enthusiasm. The same can be said for students, parents, and young families returning to campus life. As it has been for the past decades, Makati continues to be a mecca for business, leisure and modern living pleasures.
Reemergence, Rejuvenation, and the Rise of Fortis Residences
The rise of DMCI Homes Exclusive’s Fortis Residences coincides with the re-emergence and rejuvenation of Makati city. Ideally located along Chino Roces, the upscale development marries world-class design and resort-like amenities with convenience and unparalleled accessibility. Contemporary lifestyles inform how the property was built. Elevated condominium living was also a consideration that brought design details of the property together.
Along with the overall blueprint and landscape of Fortis Residences, units are expertly configured to provide dwellers with generous living spaces as compared to most high-rise developments. Throughout the development’s green, open areas bring pleasures of resort living right to the heart of the city. Central location in an emerging creative neighborhood in Makati also factors into the redefinition of condo living in the city. It reinforces that this new DMCI Homes Exclusive condo is the one address to endless possibilities in and around the city.

Never Too Far
Fortis Residences is located along the north-south main thoroughfare formerly known as Pasong Tamo. The 5.8 kilometer stretch spans Makati to Taguig, providing fast and easy access to main roads like EDSA, Osmena Highway, SLEX, and Skyway. Central Business Districts of Makati, Bonifacio Global City, Aseana, Entertainment City, The Bay Area (Mall of Asia Complex) as well the Ermita Commercial District are within reach allowing residents to go to and from without worrying about long travel hours.
Key offices and commercial areas are all within arm’s reach from Chino Roces. Shopping is diverse and ideal for urbanites leading multifaceted lifestyles with nearby leisure centers like Alphaland Southgate Mall, Waltermart Makat, Makati Cinema Square, Greenbelt, Landmark, SM Makati, Glorietta as well as Cash and Carry. This thriving landscape is made even more vibrant by one-off retail shops, restaurants, concept cafes, bars, and event spaces, and more.
Chino Roces, an emerging mixed-use creative district, is also an ideal neighborhood for molding of young minds. Apart from the inspiration that art galleries and design depots dispense throughout the area, institutions for education help to further define the young energy that now permeates throughout the borough. Don Bosco Technical Institute, Assumption College, Colegio de San Agustin, Asian Institute of Management, and Makati Hope Christian School are just a hop and skip away. Major universities and higher education institutions like the De La Salle University Makati Campus, Ateneo Graduate School, and Far Eastern University Makati are all within easy access. This makes Fortis Residences the ideal address for establishing a well-balanced and fruitful campus experience.
Hospitals are crucial players in developing communities. They provide access to healthcare and ensure the dwellers have access to the best medical services. Fortis Residences is a short 2.2 kilometers away from one of the metro’s most widely respected hospitals, Makati Medical City. It is also a short ride from Pasay City General Hospital as well as Centuria Medical Makati.

Getting From Point A To Anywhere
Travel and out-of-town excursions are also more convenient for those living in Chino Roces, Makati. The airport is a quick 15-minute drive via NAIA Expressway. From the area, it will take less than an hour to get to NAIA 1, 2, 3 and 4. For homeowners within the area, missed flights are a thing of the past.
A quick drive to Tagaytay or Batangas in the South is made more scenic via South Super Expressway, which is no more than a couple of blocks away. And while most people living in the South try to contain most in-person appointments within the area, travel time to the metro’s northern parts like Quezon City or Pasig, are now significantly via nearby Skyway and Osmena Highway.
A Home Built For Recharging And A Reboot
As exciting and exhilarating as city living may be, the ideal home will always serve as the sanctuary of rest and restoration. Resort-inspired amenities and common areas of Fortis Residences were designed with the main intention of creating a sanctuary of peace and relaxation. The 7,200 square meter development is surrounded by verdant green pockets and beautifully landscaped promenades. There are open air areas for leisure that include a play area and a basketball court. The property’s fitness gym is a well-appointed space for getting active and wellness. It ticks off the need to step out for a sweat session. Sky lounges that offer panoramic views of the metro are clever and chic locations for intimate get togethers or simply to bathe under the stars at the development’s stunningly designed Skydeck Pool Area.
Coming out of the pandemic, city lifestyles and condo living have truly evolved. Urban dwellers now have a great appreciation for the simple pleasures’ life has to offer–being close to nature, reconnecting with loved ones, and stepping out for a cup of coffee. Just the same, there is an enthusiasm for returning to life as we once knew that simply cannot be contained. We are as excited about going back to in person dinners and reunions as we are about returning to work or school. We love a leisurely stroll around garden spaces just as much as we enjoy spending a Saturday afternoon hanging around retail shops and cafes. At DMCI Homes Exclusive’s Fortis Residences, needs of a redefined urban lifestyle are met, providing the residents with one address for endless possibilities.
