Excuse me, where’s the Quest Hotel? As I said to Ayala Mall tenant who waited outside Metro Gaisano Entrance. She replied, “Over there, just followed that way. Across the Ayala Terminal, you’ll see the Grand Cenia Hotel known as Quest Hotel.” Few minutes of walking, I saw the big signage FILINVEST on the ground floor of Quest Hotel. I entered the main door and somebody directed me that the Product Knowledge Seminar of CITY DI MARE township will be on 2nd Floor of the Building. The entire floor was huge and all occupied as Main Office of FILINVEST with their premier condominium AMALFI 2 Bedroom Model House inside. In one of the Training Rooms, I was inside with other colleagues who excitedly want to hear the good news about this new township development in town. Not so long, the Filinvest Sales Marketing Head in the person of Ms. Giovanna Marie Jagdon broke the silence inside the room with her warm smile. Then the seminar had started.
Accordingly, CITY DI MARE is the new masterplanned township by Filinvest in partnership with the City Government of Cebu. This township development is located in SRP (South Reclamation Property) Cebu with a total land area of 65 hectares of which 50 hectares has a masterplan. Out 300 hectares land of SRP, City Di Mare got almost 1/3 of it. Only 3 major players are allowed to develop in SRP by the City Government and FILINVEST is one of them aside from SM and AYALA companies. In SRP, investment opportunities soon to flourish due to the presence of major commercial establishments like the existing SM Seaside City (biggest mall in Cebu) and soon to rise the Cebu Ocean Park and new Ayala commercial buildings while on going construction of CITY DI MARE. When it comes to transportation, SRP will have BRT System (Bus Rapid Transit), MyBus Transportation of SM, and 3rd Mactan Bridge will soon to be present bridging Cordova to Talisay passing along SRP. Well planned transportation is the key to have rapid economic development of the area. Investment wise the area is the prime spot for your business to prosper in no time. So what’s inside CITY DI MARE? The following photo will give you an idea how it’s being planned.
On the legend, AMALFI and SAN REMO OASIS are current residential condominium areas with Civic/ Institutional area (place for school, church and medical facilities ) in between them. The High-Rise Residential, UMI Garden Suites, and BPO & Mixed-Use areas are soon to rise while the City Di Mare Visitor Center is already constructed along the center of this area facing the IL CORSO, the 10 hectares Mall of the town with 1000 seats amphitheater highlighted with the Dancing Water Fountain like in Marina Bay of Singapore. Both the commercial and residential areas are available for all investors who would like to venture in Visayas. The pleasure is all mine to assist you for further details, just contact me. So in the coming years, CITY DI MARE is something new to look up to in Cebu.
