“It’s not purely cargo, it’s not only the port, but we have a mixed-used development, so we are incorporating retail, the port, and commercial spaces,” said Topline Group of Companies President and CEO, Eugene Erik Lim.

Pier 88’s green commercial building is equipped with solar panels and designed with relaxing sea-front views. The two-story, fully air-conditioned building also has multiple ticketing counters, comfort rooms, a waiting area on the first floor, and an upcoming Land Transportation Office and commercial spaces on the second floor.

“We want the passengers to come to Pier 88 and relax at the building while waiting for their voyage,” added Lim.

Pier 88 has signed in with three shipping companies, plus more in the works. 

In addition, Topline will soon launch seabus passenger vessels with robust engines that can accommodate 150 passengers. Initially, the seabus will make traveling from Liloan to Mactan faster, more convenient, and more comfortable. Travel time is only 30-45 minutes compared to land travel of two hours. 

Topline is also looking at creating hubs in Mactan and Cebu City in the future.
