Oct 09, 2021
While we were enjoying South Road Properties’ (SRP’s) scenic views and photoworthy spots this past few years, the place has also been continuously growing in terms of commercial, leisure, and other infrastructure developments.
This thriving place, located at the southern part of Cebu City and nearby Talisay City, has all the conveniences you need with its malls and lifestyle centers. It has impressive themed parks and is very accessible to adventure and recreation places in Cebu South. Also, some of its ongoing developments are expected to become the biggest destinations in Cebu.
Here are the beautiful existing and soon-to-be go-to places that will propel the business, leisure and tourism activities in this emerging commercial and lifestyle district.
Isla dela Victoria
Renowned for its luxurious amenities, Isla dela Victoria is a world-class establishment. Set to rise on 350, 000 sqm. land in Kawit Island, this resort and casino will house numerous bars, restaurants, theatre, as well as hotels. Led by John Gokongwei, The Universal Hotels and Resorts Inc (UHRI) has increased its investment from 18 billion to 25 billion for the development of the project. The Isla dela Victoria will be the hub for cruise ships, ferries, and seaplane airlines, increasing investment value in South Road Properties.
Fun Fact: Did you know that Isla La Victoria was named after Jojo dela Victoria, a fisherman who died protecting our waters against dynamite fishing?
