sample-img-post2A singular vision drives Filinvest: To help build the dreams of Filipinos across the country. Over the past five decades, the company has remained faithful to this commitment, developing more than 2,400 hectares of land into homes for over 140,000 Filipino families.

From humble beginnings in consumer finance in 1955, Filinvest has grown into one of the country’s leading property developers with strategic interests in the high-growth industries of banking and financial services, hotel and resort development, power generation, and the sugar industry.

Full-range developer

The name Filinvest has become synonymous with property development. From its first residential subdivision in Cebu in the 1960s, until the present, Filinvest continues to uphold the Gotianun tradition of integrity, quality, and service in all its endeavors. This has propelled the company to become one of the largest and most trusted full-range developers in the country today. With over 150 ongoing residential developments in 40 key areas across the country, Filinvest has clearly established its presence nationwide.

Filinvest’s diverse property portfolio includes premier communities, townscapes, condominiums and leisure developments. Applying a holistic approach to urban development, the company has expanded to retail and commercial establishments, as well as offices and business parks. Ranging from environments that focus on lush greenery to locales that inspire resort-style living, Filinvest continues to build lifestyles that are consonant with that of the modern Filipino.

Filinvest in Cebu

Tracing its real estate roots in Cebu, Filinvest gives back by contributing to the local economy and tourism with projects like Filinvest Cyberzone Cebu, a four-tower office development designed to house BPO offices; Crimson Resort and Spa, a sprawling 6-hectare beach resort and spa destination located in Mactan; and Grand Cenia Residences, a 25-storey prime hotel and residential development at the heart of Cebu City that features 11 floors of hotel rooms.

With the aspiration to push Cebu even further as a real estate destination, Filinvest has three exciting projects in the works: Il Corso, a waterfront lifestyle and leisure strip equipped with cinemas, al fresco dining, specialty shops and an amphitheater among many others; Serulyan Seascapes Mactan, an upscale, resort-like condominium complex composed of six towers and characterized by a 50-hectare tasteful architecture, exceptional amenities and fantastic views of the sea; and what will be their largest project in Cebu, City di Mare, a township located at the South Road Properties.

Live, work, and play in City di Mare

A joint venture with the Cebu City government, City di Mare is built based on a blueprint that is carefully planned in consideration of the ever-evolving needs and wants of Cebuanos and with the clear intention to elevate Cebu as a livable city.

City di Mare aims to provide a complete, modern and urban township that still values the freedom of space, with 60% of the entire area dedicated to open spaces. It exudes the charm of coastal living in the vastness of a location that boasts of scenic views of the mountains and the sea. Well-manicured parks and public areas allow surrounding buildings to have their own gardens and provide a serene respite for residents and visitors from the mad urban rush.

With its highly accessible location, City di Mare offers the best of both worlds – seaside living and a bustling metropolis. Various residential products that include low to mid-rise cluster apartments cater to individuals from different walks of life. At Il Corso, City di Mare’s retail lifestyle strip by the sea, private and public landscaped areas and various amenities may be found which includes cinemas, outdoor dining, an amphitheater, specialty shops and department stores. Indeed, City di Mare satisfies everyone’s desire to come home to comfort and luxury at the end of the day.

Moreover, dedicated spaces for community institutions including a school and a church are also in place. Business hubs with low to mid-rise office buildings allow easy access to work and eliminate the need to commute, giving more time for shopping, working out or simply bask in the surrounding natural beauty.

With City di Mare ready to serve the community as Cebu’s lifestyle capital, Filinvest continues to transform the lives of people by strengthening its commitment to keep the Filipino dream within reach.
