Hello, friends! Cebu Updates 32 is finally here. (By the way, I can’t believe we are now on our 32nd edition!) The updates here are mostly from 2021. Additionally, I took most of these photos when the restrictions and border controls were no longer as tough. So, that explains why you will see quite a handful in this update.
Ready? Let’s begin!
First, let’s talk about a very important development. After so many years, the Cebu Cebu Medical Center or CCMC is now ready to operate!
Next, CityMall Bacalso is finally nearing completion.
South Road Properties
Take a look at the massive Isla deal Victoria at the South Road Properties. This one is a real game-changer.
Various activities have been observed at the idle lots along the SRP access road in Mambaling. In fact, a big portion of them has now been fenced off.
20 of the stay cables of the main bridge of the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) have already been installed.
This is what downtown Cebu City and the SRP looks like from afar. This shot was taken from the 9th floor of One Central Hotel in downtown Cebu City.
Northwoods Place by Priland Development Corporation has finally been topped off. The development is located in Canduman, Mandaue City.
The exciting Gatewalk Central by AyalaLand is now almost complete. The massive project is located right across the old North Bus Terminal.
Three floors above ground can now be seen at the Astra Centre development along A.S. Fortuna Street. I’m not sure if this is technically still in Cebu City or already in Mandaue City, but I’ll just include it in this list.
The even more massive Mandani Bay in Mandaue City is showing some tremendous progress. As a matter of fact, more than a dozen cranes can be seen in the area.
Cebu Business Park
The Cebu Business Park is getting denser by the minute. The Holiday Inn and Hop Inn Cebu building has been completed and will be operating very soon.
Also, the old location of Unionbank at the Cebu Business park has been topped off by another development giant Arthaland. Exciting!
The Johndorff Tower right behind the Ayala Center Cebu Terraces is growing quite fast.
This is how the skyscrapers of the Cebu Business Park look like. 20 years ago, this area was empty and flat. (Remember the driving range across the main mall? That’s where these gigantic Solinea towers are now standing.)
The CBP has installed barriers for the safety of bikers in the area. What do you think about this development?
Other Cebu Updates
Baseline Center turned out to quite lovely. These towers have taken the place of the iconic Baseline events and lifestyle center in the Mango/Capitol area.
In addition, just a few steps away is the second Bayfront Hotel in Cebu City. This one is opening very soon.
Along V. Rama Avenue, the exciting ARC Towers Cebu is slowly taking shape.
These high-rise condo towers behind Robinsons Galleria Cebu have now almost filled the back part of the mall.
The very first GMall in Cebu is growing really fast. This new mall will take the place of the old White Gold Club store.
A small hotel is also rising behind Robinsons Cybergate Mall. This one is called Amber Hotel.
Grand Tower Cebu by Dusit has entered the last phase of its development. The tower is located behind SM City Cebu.
The new Patria Cebu is slowly becoming a reality. As a matter of fact, there is now ongoing activity in the area.
The Faustina Center at the Bonifacio District (Panagdait) has been topped off. (I think. hehe)
Ace Medical Center-Cebu across the University of San Jose-Recoletos in Basak is now open.
The Symfoni Nichols in Barangay Guadalupe is almost done!
The Casa Mira Towers in Barangay Guadalupe are rising fast, too!
The Cebu Exchange Tower by Arthaland across the Cebu IT Park is one of the city’s most ‘biggest’ buildings. Take a look at that!
After so many years, the GT Times Square tower behind Chong Hua Hospital in Fuente Osmena still hasn’t been opened. Here’s hoping that it will be completed very soon!
There is a great improvement at Kalunasan’s bridge and river.
128 Nivel Hills (taking the place of the old Casino Filipino) is rising fast.
And finally, another Skyrise building at the Cebu IT Park has been topped off.
