SM Seaside City Cebu Set to Open in 2013Posted: December 16, 2011
The year 2013 will be a grand year for the Cebuanos.
Think politics and election. Before the end of May, we’ll hopefully have new leaders sitting in both provincial and city government seats.
Think of South Reclamation Project and SM Seaside City.
Yup, guys, if everything else goes as planned, we’ll be able to see one of the first shopping malls in the reclaimed area. In fact, it is bent to be the biggest SM in Visayas and Mindanao.
According to RJ Leduna, PR manager for SM Visayas-Mindanao, in an interview, the soon-to-rise shopping mall will be like a metro within a city. In its more than 300,000 square meter SRP lot, Cebu residents can look forward to an all-white well-designed church known to be Shrine of Mary Church (it’s slated to open by 2012). There will also be convention centers, residential complexes, hotels, and even health care facilities.
The mall is meant to be a sight to behold. Designed by Arquitectonica, a company based in Miami, Florida, SM Seaside City Cebu will stay true to its name: nautilus inspired with growing foliage, a lot of open spaces, and arc-centric shape. Rumor has it BRTs will take passengers from the mega complex to the city and beyond, then vice versa. Elevated walkways will be constructed, linking a variety of structures for convenience and speed.
For the past months, a lot of stories about SM Seaside City Cebu have already circulated in the media. Whether all of them ar true or not, one thing is for sure: it’s something worth waiting for.
