Despite the global pandemic, Cebuanos continued to try to move on with their lives. In this edition of Cebu Updates, I will show you some of the many things that happened (and pushed through) in spite of the strict health and safety protocols that were in place in the Metro. It’s been a pretty tough year but we all know that the Cebuanos are a whole lot tougher.
Ready? Let’s begin!
Midtown Area Updates
The BDO building in Fuente Osmena was torn down to give way to another BDO structure. This time, probably a highrise.
Still no progress for the GT Time Square building. Let’s hope that it will be completed soon.
A BE condominium project called BE Residences will rise soon at the spot once occupied by a row of bars and restaurants along Juana Osmena Street.
Downtown Area Updates
Megawide has recently unveiled the new Bagsakan at the very controversial Carbon Market Cebu redevelopment.
The first structure of the entire Carbon Market Cebu redevelopment is nearing completion.

The new food strip next to the water in Naga City looks lovely.
So that’s it, guys! That’s part 33 of our Cebu Updates series. These updates were made before Typhoon Odette hit Cebu. So you can see updates that appear to be pretty old.
