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.
