Most of Talisay city’s business transactions takes place in Tabunok, an area where several public markets, commercial and strip malls are located. Its biggest mall is Gaisano Grand Fiesta Mall – Tabunok, commonly known by locals as Gaisano Tabunok or G-tabs.

Megaworld Luxury Hotels in Lapu Lapu City

The booming tourism industry in the Philippines during the past few years has not only benefited the country’s economic growth but also the country’s real estate market. Just this year, one of the largest real estate firms in the Philippines, Megaworld Corporation laid to the table their plans of developing the tourism industry in the Philippines through the construction of a number of tourism-estate development projects. These township projects are set not only to partake in the creation of more job and business opportunities but actually aims to target the growth of the tourism industry in the country. Megaworld makes a large-scale venture to several provinces in the country such as Cebu, one of the favorite destinations of local and foreign tourists.

The property firm will splurge P8 billion for new luxury hotels in Lapu-Lapu City which will be established as a destination not only for the locals but also to foreigners who are increasing in number each year in the said province. To further the interests of tourists, it came up with considerable proposals such as the construction of a lifestyle mall in the Mactan Newtown township. This mall will be called “Plaza Magellan”, a state-of-the-art and will be a major landmark in Visayas because it gives a glimpse of Cebuano history featuring a museum with the expedition accounts of Magellan and a symbolic plaza strategically opposite of the Lapu-Lapu Shrine. Moreover, the company also plans to impress tourists and locals on putting up a covered food strip in the mall akin to a famous food strip in Singapore. This lifestyle mall will not only market to the province but also to the neighboring provinces in Visayas.

With Megaworld’s remarkable trademark in real estate ventures such as that of the Eastwood township which also boomed the BPO industry in the Philippines, their all-out shift to tourism projects will surely benefit the tourism industry. Business tycoon Andrew Tan of Megaworld Corporation who recently acquired Global Estate Resorts Inc. (GERI) is hands on to these big prospects of new tourism projects. These efforts will also be a progressive contribution to Megaworld’s current status as the number one landholder and developer of business centers in the Philippines.

The all-out ventures of real estate companies to the tourism sector such as the Megaworld Corporation not only poses a strategic move to the company’s direction but will also continually register healthy growth to the tourism industry in the Philippines. Megaworld Corp. raises a bar in the real estate market which does not only take into account a booming response to profit but also a big contribution to the government’s pitch to improve the tourism sector.

Although the real estate market in the Philippines is still on its conservative rate as manifested in the continuous proliferation of BPOs in many mega cities in the Philippines, it is still a major breakthrough for these property firms such as the Megaworld. This major shift to the promotion of tourism in the country through tourism-estate projects will notch up more job and business opportunities to Filipinos and at the same time skyrocketing revenue to several Cebu real estate companies.

Earth and Natural Cycle and the human arrogance

if i were asked what can i say about our definition of industrialization, commercialization, career growth, success, and technology, my answer would be:

it is the wrong formula. all of those stated above is against the natural cycle of this planet. we always aim for growth and success in our careers of which those careers all aim for highest sales, most efficient means, most effective ways, and the like. with the technology in place, we aim to maximize the fewest raw materials to give us the highest number of output, and yet we continue to always reach that maximum number resulting to innovating another kind of technology that we will eventually outdo again. we forgot someone can’t keep up with this pace. simply put, mother nature can’t cope with our formula of success. time will come we will lose everything, a dead-end, doomsday, all because of our wrong formula.

Reply —-

Earth and its natural cycle is indirectly your main concern, the fact is, Earth will outlast us (humans), earth will live for another 4 billion years on its own (a living or a cold/hot stone on space). The natural cycle of Earth is triggered mostly by the inner activity mostly in the mantle (in which human are not able to reach yet nor manipulate).

The doomsday you are talking about is merely a concern on human specie. Remember that Earth was life-less from the start, bombarded with space-rocks that could have brought life (living organism) to its surface. Surface, that’s WHERE we are and that the same surface suffered a direct hit that ended the some life-forms including Dinosaurs. A few rest and that surface is still capable of supporting life. Of course we speak of humans, cause we are one, but LIFE and Earth’s Cycle is far from our control though humans are known for its arrogance and assumptions.

for confirmation – check The Chernobyl disaster, its a human story of success and and a sample of your dooms-day, you will realized it was on the Earth’s surface, humans (your main concern) were evacuated, yet wolves and trees are in bloom there, how much more Earths survival and its natural cycle…. so basically its not Earth and its natural cycle you are worried about…but the human survival.

Benefits of Living in Cebu

Cebu’s development has been steadily continuing since the late 1990s and early 2000s, and has shown no sign of slowing down. From the industries found in Mandaue City and other neighboring cities in the North, progress has always been evident in the province. With the completion of the South Road Properties in the first half of the first decade of the New Millenium, Cebu’s growth has continued to soar.

The South Road Properties — or SRP as it is fondly called by the locals — is a hub of projects and developments that will provide quality housing and jobs for the province, as well as a source of revenues for the local government. It represents a good venue for foreign investment, as the SRP has been designated as a Special Economic Zone.

SM Seaside City Cebu
Expected to be opened to the public in 2015, the SM Seaside City is not your regular shopping mall. Touted by Han Sy, president of SM Prime Holdings, as a destination mall, SM Seaside City is a sprawling complex designed by none other than the same company that created the SM Mall of Asia in Manila. One of the complex’s attractions is a Viewing Tower that will let visitors take in the sights around SRP, including the picturesque waters surrounding the SRP.

Citta di Mare
The Citta di Mare is the home of the Amalfi Oasis, a real estate project co-developed by the government of Cebu with real estate conglomerate Filinvest Land Inc. It is a “resort town” complex of five-story buildings housing premium condominium units and resort-style facilities spanning 40 hectares. Aside from the Amalfi Oasis resort, the Citta di Mare complex also includes a waterfront property!

When it is completed, the Citta di Mare will join the Mactan Newtown One Manchester Place as a residential project found within a Special Economic Zone in Cebu.

UP Cebu
Keeping up with its goal of making the SRP a self-sustaining mini-city, the local government unit of Cebu City has donated five hectares to the University of the Philippines. In return, the university will establish facilities to provide evening classes for call center training. This is to prepare a pool of skilled individuals to staff the future BPO and outsourcing companies that will be taking a foothold in the Properties.

Bigfoot Entertainment Inc.
The Bigfoot complex in the SRP represents the very first international filming studio that can be found in the Philippines. The project has just finished the Phase 1 of its development. Future developments include a Hollywood-style destination, complete with spas, cafes, and restaurants as well as shopping boutiques! In other words, one can experience the spirit of Hollywood even if he or she is in Cebu once the project is finished!

Of course, the abovementioned places are only a few of the attractions that make investing in a property here in Cebu worth the while! If you are looking for a place to experience resort lifestyle for the rest of your life while still keeping close to what Cebu has to offer, an investment in the South Road Properties is definitely a good decision.
