1. The Project:
Citta di Mare is a master-planned community spanning approximately 50 hectares at the newly reclaimed
South Road Properties of the Cebu City Government.
Citta di Mare, or “the City by the Sea”, captures the charms of resort living with its majestic views of Mactan’s
coast and Cebu’s mountains. The development, bisected into 2 sections by the Cebu Coastal Road, will
redefine waterfront and seaside resort living in the Visayas.
Il Corso, the 106,148sqm section directly fronting the sea will be developed into a waterfront lifestyle strip
that will offer a range of seaside leisure activities.
The 390,484sqm section on the opposite side of the Coastal Road will be developed into a residential resort
town composed of themed residential communities anchored by the Piazza, an Italian-inspired common
amenity area. The development on the area is a joint venture development project between Filinvest Land,
Inc. and the Cebu City Government.
Amalfi Oasis, the first residential cluster to be developed at Citta di Mare, is inspired by the Italian coastal
towns along the Costiera Amalfitana (Amalfi Coast), which is renowned for its scenic beauty, picturesque
towns and diversity.
2. Perfect Location:
South Road Properties (SRP), Cebu City The South Roads Properties (SRP) is a 300-hectare prime property development project on reclaimed land
located a few meters off the cost Cebu’s central business district. It is registered with the Philippine
Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) as a Special Economic Zone.

Counterpart funding was provided by the City of Cebu which owns the project.
Abutting the SRP is the Cebu Coastal Road, a 12-kilometer, 4-lane highway that costs 18Bn Yen and was also
funded by the JBIC.
Features of and Infrastructure at the SRP (from the Cebu City Government)
Reclamation and all other civil works were done by Japanese contractors in conformity with
internationally accepted engineering standards.
To optimize the use and cost of water, a dual piping system will be installed, a separate pipe for
potable water and another one for gray water.
Fiber Optic cables for all telecommunications and broadband requirements will be available.
Security will be greatly enhanced since the project is virtually an island and all approaches will have

3. The Concept
The Nautilus (from Greek !”#$, ‘sailor’) has survived relatively unchanged for 450 million years and is one
of the only shells to survive from the Dinosaurs era.
Beauty and Renewal. The Nautilus shell, lined with mother-of-pearl, grows into increasingly larger chambers
throughout its life and so has become a symbol for expansion and renewal. Dating back to Hindu myth, the
Nautilus Shell was mentioned as a symbol of many things in creation. It is also a symbol for the inner beauty
Renowned. Back in the age of exploration and expedition, the nautilus was one of the strange creatures
found on voyages to the Southern seas, and many an idle sailor would spot this tiny-shelled creature floating
on the quiet sea. The nautilus took on mythical proportions when sailors told of their south sea adventures to
eager listeners gathered around the fire on a cold winter’s night, back in the northern ports of England or of
the northeastern United States.
Herald of good things to come. In Greek and Roman mythology, Triton, the son of Poseidon who dwells in the
sea, only rises to the surface to blow his horn – a shell shaped like the nautilus. From Triton’s horn comes the
magic or mystery which sailors pray for to calm a bad storm at sea.
The name Citta di Mare, or City by the Sea, encapsulates the concept for the development. The very name
hints at the experience that can be enjoyed here – a lifestyle marked by freedom, pleasure, luxury and
The approximately 50has property is envisioned to be just that – a thriving metropolis complete with all
the conveniences of living within the city. Investing in a home at Citta di Mare doesn’t just mean getting a
dwelling unit – you invest in a city.
The residential community comes with separate amenities per cluster,
with generous open spaces and landscaped areas. It is a pedestrian-friendly community with car-free zones
where your children can run around freely. The community has a central amenity area complete with a
church, school, retail shops, cafes and sports ground.
The proposed UP campus is also just a few blocks
away. Across the road is Il Corso, a waterfront lifestyle strip that introduces a new dimension of seaside
pleasures. It features a boardwalk, beach sandbox, marina, cafes, bars, restaurants, souvenir shops, home
depot, retail shops, exhibit tents, amphitheater and high-rise residential condominiums.

Wharf, and the romantic French Riviera. Citta di Mare captures this idyllic lifestyle. Here, resort living
