Many of us think that it's impossible to find a haven in the middle of a busy city, but thankfully the team at DMCI Homes has created a wonderful sanctuary that will allow you to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Nestled in the booming district of Taguig City, Acacia Estates holds various subdivisions and condominium neighborhoods, making the place a go-to for homebuyers looking for a family-friendly community.
Amid the growing communities in Acacia Estates, DMCI Homes is currently developing a new condominium project, focusing on a family-centered design that marries the advantages of living in the city and the need to embrace a quiet life.
Many people think that living in the city and high-rise condominiums takes away a lot of life's precious micro-moments. However, this truly depends on the design of the space, and that's where Alder Residences thrives. Here, you'll get to create a lifestyle centered on family, comfort, and ambition, transforming your life one day at a time.
Conscious Living in a Booming City
There are many factors to consider when choosing a home, and one of the things to consider is its location. Alder Residences is situated in the warm district of Acacia Estates, in the vibrant city of Taguig.
Because of this, you're living conveniently close to relevant establishments, such as top schools, entertainment and leisure zones, medical facilities, business districts, and more. With this conscious lifestyle, you'll get to curate and transform the life that you want.
Curated Amenities Fit for Families
Alder Residences has family at the forefront of its design. With that in mind, they've created spaces where you and your loved ones can connect and share memories that will last a lifetime.
Here, you'll get to cool down and enjoy different pools, such as the leisure and lap pool, and of course, your kids can splash around in the kiddie pool. If you're into shooting hoops, a basketball court is settled in the corner of Alder Residences, and for some thrilling game nights, Alder Residences has game rooms, making it the perfect place to get your game on with your family and friends.
To wind down and enjoy life's slowness, Alder Residences has picnic spots and an activity lawn where you can spend quality time with those close to you. Not to mention, you can enjoy the views of the city at the Sky Lounge and Sky Patio.
Purposeful Space for Growth
There's no denying that Alder Residences offers a fantastic outdoor experience for you and your loved ones. But what really takes the cake are DMCI Homes' thoughtful unit designs.
Alder Residences units offer big living spaces, allowing families to flow through each area with ease. Their spacious 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom units range from 64.5- to 121 square, enough room to adapt to each lifestyle—from today's work-from-home culture to our little one's homeschooling needs.

Quadruple A developer DMCI Homes has opened a new access road inside its Acacia Estates township in Taguig City to give residents an alternative route going in and out of the 150-hectare residential community.
The newly-constructed road, which provides Acacia Estates residents direct access to Circumferential Road 6 (C-6) and Bicutan via M.L Quezon Road, was opened for use last August 6, 2020.
The alternate route is accessible from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. for motorists with valid Acacia Estates car and motorcycle stickers. Taxis and Transport Network Vehicle Service (TNVS) transporting residents are also allowed entry provided that drivers leave identification cards to the Acacia Estates security.
The development of the access road is seen to significantly ease traffic on Acacia Estates’ neighboring residential roads particularly along Cayetano Boulevard formerly Levi Mariano Avenue.
DMCI Homes Vice President for Project Development Dennis Yap said another access road going to Circumferential Road 5 (C-5) via Maria Tinga Road is also being developed to further make it convenient for Acacia Estates residents to enter and exit the community.
“DMCI Homes continues to work with the Taguig government to address the needs of our residents and contribute to the city’s further development,” Yap said.
“We hope our initiatives will help facilitate traffic safety and efficiency and also further boost local businesses’ growth prospects,” he added.
Situated in a thriving district in Taguig City, Acacia Estates offers exquisite living spaces with excellent proximity to McKinley Hill, Bonifacio Global City, Makati City and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
Since 2007, DMCI Homes’ largest land bank has been home to over 8,000 families living in various themed subdivisions and condominium communities.
Ice candy is one of the all-time Pinoy favorite treats for both kids and adults especially during the scorching summer months. Recently, one unique variation of the popular frozen refreshment has created a buzz around the metro with its creamy and refreshing smooth flavor.
This is Tristan’s Ice Cream Candy which is ice candy with the richness of ice cream. Concocted by Tristan Cristobal, a former Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) turned entrepreneur, the story of the ice cream candy’s success dates back when he was still working as an accountant in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and how his business got its breakthrough at a DMCI Homes community called Cedar Crest, located in Acacia Estates at Taguig City.
“I decided to venture into this business after being inspired by a concept from a friend,” said Tristan, as he narrated the journey of how he began his personal study on ice cream-making while working abroad.
“The Cedar Crest community was really the first to believe in my product,” recalled Tristan. “It’s really hard to find people who will give you the opportunity. Luckily, the convenience store here gave me the chance, starting with buying 50 pieces late last year.”
Cedar Crest is medium-rise enclave that has been home to the Cristobal family for over five years. Personally for Tristan, it is both a sanctuary and a springboard for his business.
He launched his ice cream candy during one of Cedar Crest’s video feasts, which is a gathering that spread God’s Word in a series of recorded talks. After the celebration, Tristan distributed samples of his product to let his neighbors taste his creamy and refreshing homemade ice cream candy which comes in different flavours such as pandan, caramel, strawberry, chocolate, and a lot more.
From then on, the community convenience store began placing orders which increased over the months. The number of Tristan’s resellers eventually grew and now reaches Las Pinas, Parañaque, Novaliches, Bataan, Quezon and as far as Nueva Vizcaya. The product even caught the attention of morning TV show Unang Hirit and was recently featured in the program.
Importance of financial literacy for OFWs
Tristan also notes that making ice cream candy is one of his investments to help secure the future for himself and his family. Apart from his ice cream candy business, one of the things he is passionate about is helping his fellow OFWs save money and get back home to their families.
Hence, during his last two years abroad, Tristan and his wife became active in the Angat Pilipinas Coalition for Financial Literacy.
“Through Angat Pilipinas, I sometimes led talks on financial literacy to help my fellow OFWs build the future that they want within their envisioned timeframe. The advocacy is about educating OFWs to use their earnings wisely,” he said.
Supportive and relaxing community
As his ice cream candy business continues to grow, Tristan’s day also becomes busier. He is actually a one-man team from making to packaging the ice cream candy and even delivering the orders. Fortunately, coming home to Cedar Crest has always been a relaxing affair for Tristan and his family, beginning from the grand sense of arrival at the entrance gate all the way to their two-bedroom unit.
“Coming home always gives me a relaxing feel. Actually when we first visited the place five years ago, it was already love at first sight,” he recalled. “We were newly married back then and looking for a house of our own. We immediately fell in love with the ambiance and the environment.”
Tristan particularly finds peace of mind and comfort at the condominium community, and appreciates its safety and security which is ideal for his children.
“I think the community is perfect for raising a family. Coming home here takes away all my stress. It feels as if you’re not in the city. There are lots of trees and fresh air throughout the condo. The amenities are designed well and the Property Management Office is proactive in addressing concerns and holding events which everyone in the community enjoys,” he said.
For Tristan, having a high quality home for his family in a supportive and peaceful community is more than just a dream come true – it is also an opportunity to make something more out of life such as what made his ice cream candy an increasingly favorite dessert and snack among people of all ages.
