Cebu IT Park in Lahug (February 2007)

Cebu’s dream of becoming the IT Hub of the South is fast becoming a reality. With the completion of four IT buildings and the construction of two more this year, the park will no doubt soon become an important technology hub and an essential driving force in Cebu’s ever-growing economy.

Check out some of the shots I took of the lovely Asiatown IT Park in Lahug as it gets ready to be Cebu’s next biggest destination.

The Asiatown IT Park in Lahug as of February 2007.

Big open spaces ready for Cebu’s future high-rises.

Tree-line roads which are perfect for afternoon walks or jogs.

One of the park’s very first locators is the yellow-and-red Skyrise building located at the northern end of the property.

The park’s biggest locator, however,  would have to be the People Support center which is located right in the center of the property.

The Waterfront Hotel and Casino as seen from one of the park’s empty lots. Before the development, the park used to be a landing strip of the Lahug Airport.

Another early locator is the Globe Tower which can be seen near the Skyrise tower.

Two of the structures that attract the most number of visitor traffic right now are the i1 and i2 buildings. These two buildings house several popular restaurant and coffee brands.

The recently-vacated lot which was once occupied by famous party destination “The Village” is now being fenced off for new development.
