In attendance were the entire Gotianun family, Cebu City Mayor Michael L. Rama, Cebu City Congressman Tomas R. Osmeña, Congresswoman Rachel Cutie del Mar, Vice Mayor Joy Young and luminaries in government, business and social scenes. This special event was a homecoming of sorts for Filinvest patriarch and Chairman of the Board Mr. Andrew L. Gotianun, Sr., whose family’s roots can be traced in Cebu.
Filinvest, as a property developer, also traces its roots in Cebu.
Their first venture in the property business was to develop St. Michael Subdivision in Banilad. This was the company’s pioneer project. Filinvest further strengthened its presence in Cebu by developing more residential subdivisions, condo communities namely One Oasis, the Grand Cenia condotel project, and leisure developments such as the luxurious Crimson Resort & Spa. Filinvest welcomed every opportunity to contribute to the progress and development of Cebu. Each project was another chance to come home with Citta di Mare marking their biggest homecoming. Citta di Mare, will not just be a city by the sea on the rise, but also a unique seaside lifestyle that will change the way people live.
Filinvest, together with their joint venture partner, the City Government of Cebu unveiled a new landmark that would elevate the standards of seaside living not only in Cebu but also all over the country.
Inspired by the charm of Italian coastal cities, Citta di Mare, literally “the City by the Sea”, captures the charms of resort living with its majestic views of Mactan’s coast and Cebu’s mountains. Citta di Mare is a fitting depiction of what the company stands for—a vision of fulfilling dreams and dream lifestyles. Spanning 50.6 hectares at Cebu’s South Road Properties, Citta di Mare is a world-class, master-planned city development composed of three different zones catering to a wide array of lifestyles and activities- Il Corso, the 10-hectare waterfront lifestyle strip, the 40-hectare Residential Clusters and the 6-hectare Piazza within the residential clusters.
Il CorsoThe 10 hectare parcel, or more commonly known before as SRP’s Pond F has a direct sea frontage and will become a new waterfront lifestyle strip that will add a host of leisure activities for the whole family. Il Corso will feature a 1- kilometer long promenade that will allow guests to enjoy and interact with the scenic sea frontage and numerous water fountain accents while enjoying a multitude of shopping, dining, and entertainment experiences.
Il Corso will include a retail boardwalk, high-end boutiques, water fountain show, day to night F&Bs, a wedding pavilion, stage and amphitheater, a marina, a shipwreck adventure and a boutique hotel. At The heart of Il Corso will be the Dancing Fountain Laser Light Show, bringing a nightly visual display of music, color, and adventure to multitude of visitors.
The Residential ClustersThe Second zone will be the 40-hectare residential zone. The residential zone will contain various mid rise residential condominium building clusters interspersed with generous open spaces. Only 35% of the residential zone was used as building footprints, the 65% of the land were internationally dedicated for parks, tree-lined path walks, jogging trails, bike lanes and spot parks as gaps between residential buildings.
The entire residential area will also be car free, making Citta Di Mare truly a distinct pedestrian paradise. Each cluster of condominium buildings will have its own set of amenities- including a swimming pool, a clubhouse and covered activity courts.
Inspired by a quaint seaside Italian community named Amalfi, our Amalfi Oasis will be our first offering of mid rise condominium units comprised of around 10 to 12 buildings of at least 5 story in height.
The PiazzaThe third zone in Citta Di Mare will be The Piazza- a 6-hectare open space development within the residential zone that is set aside as an additional open space and leisure convergence area for the residents of Citta Di Mare. The piazza, similar to its Italian counterparts, will have a church, a big water fountain with pool sculptures, and surrounded by street benches. The Piazza will also have a soccer field, a preparatory and grade school complex and a mix of al fresco dining and shopping spaces.
In a manner of coming home for Filinvest and developing our new flagship project in Cebu City, Citta Di Mare’s design pays homage to all of Cebu’s personalities thru multiple experiences aimed at entertaining locals and travelers alike.
From the charming Chinese night market and shipwreck adventure of Il Corso, to the car-free roads of Amalfi Oasis, and the central water fountain and pool sculptures of the Piazza, all the elements of CItta Di Mare will come together to bring a new development that is exciting, engaging, trendy and celebratory.
