THE FILINVEST Group is expanding one of its flagship projects, City di Mare, in Cebu City to adapt to the changing needs of consumers amid the “new normal.”

In a statement, Filinvest said it recently acquired an additional 9.6 hectares of land to be developed into a mixed-use project with residential, office, commercial, and retail components in South Road Properties, Cebu.

“With this new land bank, City di Mare will further foster a live-work-play lifestyle in the community,” the company said.

City di Mare already has residential buildings that are ready for occupancy, such as Sanremo Oasis and Amalfi, as well as a lifestyle complex IL Corso by Filinvest Lifemalls. It also features a park where residents and visitors can enjoy the outdoors while practicing social distancing.

To address the changing needs of the community, the company is building a pedestrian bridge with a bike lane that will connect City di Mare to IL Corso. It also plans to add a mixed-use block that will feature a school/university, office buildings, and retail area.
