CEBU CITY, Philippines — Filinvest, one of the Philippines’ leading real estate developers, is investing further in City di Mare (CDM), a global coastal city that fosters a complete modern live-work-play lifestyle cradled by nature, for its accessibility and mobility infrastructure.

This initiative is aimed at enhancing the quality of life for residents and solidifying the city’s status as a thriving urban hub.

The commitment is part of a meticulously planned strategy to create a vibrant, sustainable, and inclusive community catering to the diverse needs of its residents.

The economic impact on Cebu is projected to be substantial, creating thousands of new jobs, helping local businesses thrive, and further attracting investments to the region.

“We are thrilled to contribute to Cebu’s growth through this significant investment in City di Mare,” said Don Ubaldo, first vice president for townships of Filinvest Alabang, Inc.

“Our vision is to create a harmonious blend of urban living and natural beauty, offering residents a unique and enriching lifestyle,” he added.

Spanning 58 hectares, CDM stands out as Cebu’s premier waterfront community. The development is designed to integrate residential, commercial, and recreational spaces. With a strong focus on sustainability and innovation, CDM is setting new benchmarks for urban living in Cebu.

Accessibility and Mobility

Recognizing the importance of efficient and reliable transportation, Filinvest designed CDM with comprehensive transport solutions to ensure seamless connectivity within and beyond its boundaries.

The community features multiple transportation options, including bus routes, pedestrian-friendly pathways, and a planned integration with Cebu’s major transport networks.

It boasts of three convenient shuttle buses connecting residents and visitors to key destinations across Cebu, including the north, south, and city center.

CDM is set to enhance its accessibility with several key infrastructure developments. A recently completed traffic intersection at El Pardo Road and Cebu South Coastal Road will significantly improve traffic flow and safety in the area.

Additionally, a pedestrian bridgeway, targeted for completion in the first quarter of 2025, will provide a safe crossing for residents and visitors, further integrating the community.

Moreover, the connection of Roads 4, 9, and 10 to Antolihao Road will facilitate smoother traffic flow and better access to various parts of the city.

Filinvest is also building a central park, with its target completion set for 2029, which will serve as the community’s green heart—offering expansive open spaces, recreational facilities, and serene landscapes for relaxation and social gatherings.

These projects underscore Filinvest’s commitment to ensuring CDM is a well-connected and easily navigable community, ensuring that residents and visitors can move easily throughout the area.

“Our goal is to make CDM not just a great place to live, but a community that is easily accessible and seamlessly connected to the rest of Cebu,” added Ubaldo. “With these mobility initiatives, we are setting a new standard for urban living in the region.”

CDM also donated motorbikes to the local government for police officers, enhancing local law enforcement capabilities.

Future Outlook

With a strong commitment to both comfort and connectivity, CDM offers a truly integrated living experience. Residents and visitors alike can take advantage of the complimentary public bus system for a limited time, making navigating Cebu a breeze.

As City di Mare evolves, its transportation options will continue to expand, ensuring a seamlessly connected future for this vibrant community.

Filinvest’s strategic investment in City di Mare not only reinforces its dedication to sustainable urban development but also positions Cebu as a model for modern, transit-oriented living.

This transformative project is poised to drive economic growth and enhance quality of life, securing a prosperous future for Cebu and its residents.
