As strategic locations go, City di Mare couldn’t be more promising. The sprawling 50-hectare township at the Cebu South Road Properties (SRP) has the flagship regional mall development of Filinvest Lifemalls called IL Corso on its premises, one that centers on a unique premise of un-malling that is different on two standout features: first, the mall will feature an iconic lighthouse that will soon house retail space as well as a restaurant for a refreshing new retail experience. Second, it is right next to the waters between Cebu and Bohol.
“City di Mare promotes the integration of the live-work-play lifestyle with the abundance of greens and open spaces as backdrop,” reiterates Don Ubaldo, Filinvest’s Vice President for Townships. “Right from the start of planning, we have always envisioned it to become a one-stop shop for all of life’s necessities given the proximity of residential, retail, office, and even institutional components in one place. A masterplanned township development like City di Mare has so much to offer to everyone, and we are excited that locators have gradually started operations like IL Corso.” A mixed-use development promoting the live-work-play lifestyle, the live component is fulfilled by the Sanremo Oasis, a mid-rise residential community, and the resort-themed Amalfi. A deliberately masterplanned community with generous open spaces all intricately woven on green pedestrian-friendly road networks, City di Mare is not only an ideal address but inevitably becomes the prime choice for large-scale outdoor events in Cebu. City di Mare previously hosted Color Manila Run, Lifedance, and Sugbo Mercado, making it an epic playground and venue for events. With future plans for office buildings, the work component is also closer to home.
As the development in Cebu expands beyond its already congested center, City di Mare is positioned perfectly as the gateway to the island’s southern delights: whether it be canyoneering in Kawasan falls, swimming with the whalesharks in Oslob, hiking Cebu’s highest peak in Dalaguete, seeking the elusive Cebu Flowerpecker in Nug-as forest in Alcoy, cruising the Bojo river in Aloguinsan, or exploring Moalboal’s famous divespots, the shift to living closer to the south makes perfect sense.
It’s an exciting time for the South, and City di Mare is right at the gateway to all the action!
