We envision City di Mare as a progressive city within an urban paradise. It is a complete forward-looking township carefully planned to meet modern requisites for comfort and convenience. With everything within easy reach, City di Mare promises an elevated lifestyle, where time can be spent on things that truly matter.Aside from proximity to basic necessities, City di Mare offers better living and working environments with its low density and its expansive open spaces. The masterplan was deliberately brought closer to a more human scale, with residential and office buildings designed mostly to be low-rise and mid-rise in nature. This will be set against private and public gardens that make up 60% of City di Mare’s landscape. Our pedestrian and biker-friendly road network likewise encourages outdoor living. These features, as well as other sustainable design elements, allow us to showcase the innate beauty of Cebu’s landscape and offer City di Mare dwellers prized natural luxuries such as exquisite views and refreshing breeze.

With its contemporary housing options for varying markets, a vibrant mix of work, shopping and recreation offerings, and planned future development which includes a school and a church, City di Mare is positioned to be the preferred address in Cebu.

All in all, City di Mare promises teeming opportunities for inspired living for those who pride their own, the Cebuanos.

We at Filinvest proudly invite you to plant your future here at City di Mare. Your lifestyle, your city.
