Cebu has been doing well in the industrial world lately, pushing more and more technologies for all to enjoy, and many of them have also been good. One of its growing buds is the South Road Properties (SRP) projects, which welcome locals and foreigners alike with new and exciting developments.
Take a step back and look at all the developments that have been created, as well as the future development plans of the SRP.
1. SM Seaside, Cebu ‘s largest shopping center
With its magnificent tower looking through the clouds and its wave-shaped nature of its windows, SM Seaside truly mesmerizes the hearts of the Cebuano people. Established back in 2015, the mall now holds the record as the third largest mall in the Philippines and the ninth largest mall in the world. The mall has more than 700 shops inside, making it one of the best shopping experiences.
2. Church of Pedro Calungsod with an iconic style
Pedro Calungsod, who was formally canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on 21 October 2012, was adored by many Filipino Catholics for his nobility and devotion to his religion. To honor him, the church that was built back in 2012 was named after the saint near SM Seaside. Now, many churchgoers are drawn to the SRP.
803 people will sit comfortably in the church. It has a baptistery, an adoration chapel, a multipurpose space for the various events and meetings of the parishioners, as well as a children’s room where children can sit while the mass is going on.
This magnificent church is the gift of SM to the Filipinos in honor of our first Cebuano saint, San Pedro Calungsod.
3. Cebu Ocean Park: the first Oceanarium of VisMin
Cebu has recently been honoured to have the largest aquarium in the Philippines: the Cebu Ocean Park. Complete of a number of colorful fishes and threatening sharks, this is an aquatic experience worth taking. More and more fine specimens are expected to be housed in their aquarium, so don’t skip it!
4. IL CORSO: Cebu ‘s Resort Mall
Filinvest’s Il Corso brands itself as a luxury mall that caters to the luxury needs. The mall has only opened recently and therefore does not contain much just yet, but will in fact have more facilities in the near future. Right now, there are restaurants open, so let’s go and experience the comfortable lifestyle.
5. Seaside Arena: the biggest indoor arena in Cebu
Back in 2017, there were discussions of having an arena in the SRP, but politics collapsed. Now, Mayor Edgar Labella has brought back the concept of an arena back in October during his 100 Days of Service speech, which he called the Seaside Arena.
It will have a seating capacity of 16,000 and it is scheduled to be finished by 2025.
6. Isla dela Victoria: the integrated casino resort of Cebu
Isla dela Victoria is a world class project under construction on Kawit Island. It has been invested 25 billion pesos and has already been approved by Mayor Edgar Labella. They will include restaurants, malls, casinos, parks, and more. Right now, it’s the largest SRP project, and it’s sure to be a wonderful sight to see.
7. CCLEX: the longest bridge in Cebu
The P30-billion project, which will improve Cebu’s road network to provide motorists with secure and pleasant travel experience, is also expected to help stimulate economic growth and boost investment not only in Cebu City and Cordova Municipality, but also in the entire Cebu Province and Visayas Region.
Among the iconic features of CCLEX, which is supposed to be among the landmarks of Cebu when it was completed in 2021, is the lighted cross on all four sides of the two 145-metre-high main pylons.
As of August 2020, the construction of the 8.5-kilometer Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) will be halfway through for its 2021 completion date.
