In Photos: The Pride of Mandaue City

As soon as the rain stopped, I decided to drive around Mandaue City today to take photos of some of the most prominent structures in the city as of the moment. Here are some of the shots from the shoot.

The new Cebu Doctors’ University building. Looking sauve!

CDU building from afar. Aside from the chipped cladding, everything looked perfect.

Here’s a closer look at the facade of the university.

Main entrance looks extra cool.

As expected, there’s a new strip near the school.

Then, there’s the world-famous and ever controversial Cebu International Convention Center or CICC.

The CICC looks very clean and smooth from this angle.

The Uniwide property will now become a new mall called The Parkmall. Exciting!

The San Miguel Corporation bottling plant looks beautiful, as always.

Here’s another shot of the plant and the beautiful and well-maintained roads along the CICC.

Super zoom-in on the iconic giant beer bottle.

SM City Cebu’s new phase (Northwing) is now under construction.

The Sheraton tower will soon be opening with different name.

Hope the new hotel does this beautiful building justice.

The Fiesta Strip of SM City Cebu serves as the mall’s lifestyle hub.

Β The Cebu Boardwalk Mall right behind the Cebu Doctors University looks very promising.

Look at the paved drive way to the mall.

Lovin’ the lamp posts, too!

Also the red sidewalks which are very reminiscent of the sidewalks at the SRP.

Closer look at the new mall.

Viva Mandaue!
