Cebu gives you the best of both worlds—a thriving commercial business district coupled with a tropical, resort-style vibe. And its proximity to neighboring Visayas islands makes the city the perfect place to combine cosmopolitan living and R&R. Throw in some Cebuano design ingenuity and you’ve got the perfect place to live in. Here are some options:


Amaia Steps Mandaue

This nine-storey residential development, aside from its proximity to various retail areas and industrial estates on the Mandaue side, has the convenience of being 5km away from the Mactan-Cebu International Airport.

Avida Towers Riala


This popular Avida project further adds to the cosmopolitan vibe of downtown Cebu. Nature and organic materials are design inspirations for this five-tower development. The airy, open-type layout of each unit gives residents ample natural light and ventilation. One of their model units was designed by Cebuano designers Maybelline Te (pictured here), Maya Franco, and Hannah Lim for a co-sponsored Real Living project.
