Vista Land’s Valencia: The ‘crown jewel’ of Mactan

Cebu has more than one central island, making it a unique and diverse metropolitan area. Of the islands Metro Cebu hosts, the two most significant and busiest are Mactan and Cebu City, each with its own bustling business center and exciting real estate prospects.

Mactan, in particular, strikes a balance between city living and a beachside lifestyle. With rapid developments in Metro Cebu, there’s been a need to establish more infrastructure to allow people to move more seamlessly between Mactan and Cebu. Today, there are three functional road networks that connect Mactan to the rest of the bustling metropolis.

Mactan-Mandaue Bridge (Sergio Osmeña, Jr. Bridge)

Known to locals as “The First Bridge,” the Mactan-Mandaue Bridge is the first road infrastructure to connect Mactan to the main island of Cebu. The bridge spans the Mactan Channel effectively linking Lapu-Lapu City in Mactan to Cebu’s Mandaue City. The bridge boosted Mactan’s economic activities and overall quality of living for residents on the island, which at the time, was relatively behind that of the main Cebu island. The opening of the bridge signaled how any property in Mactan will appreciate, generating good returns for those early investors.

Marcelo Fernan Bridge

Cebuanos also have a moniker for the Marcelo Fernan Bridge: “The Second Bridge.” It traverses the same route as the Mactan-Mandaue Bridge but what sets it apart are its scale and engineering design. The Marcelo Fernan Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge with four vehicle lanes flanked by two pedestrian lanes. Beyond its functionality, the bridge has become a popular spot for photographers and travelers searching for panoramic sights.

Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX)

The Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway or CCLEX serves as Cebu’s newest landmark. The 8.9-kilometer bridge decongests traffic in the existing bridges connecting Lapu-Lapu to Cebu island and is also expected to revitalize economic activities in Cordova. The CCLEX incorporates Cordova more closely to the Metro Cebu network. Previously considered an inaccessible area to and from the main Cebu island, Cordova now has some of the most desirable property developments in Mactan.

Valencia: The Crown Jewel of Mactan

A prime development of Vista Land, one of the leading integrated property developers in the country, Valencia is a multi-tower development that will transform Mactan Island’s cityscape within five hectares of prime real estate in the heart of the city. With quick access to the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway, Valencia is poised to be known as the crown jewel of Mactan.

With quick access to the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway, Valencia is poised to be known as the crown jewel of Mactan in Cebu.

Valencia’s strategic location is one of its core advantages. With the recent additions to the island’s road networks, Mactan is now closer to the main island, the country, and the world. The  Mactan-Cebu International Airport, the second busiest in the Philippines, is stationed at the center of the island.

Like a carefully crafted diamond sitting atop an elegant engagement ring, Valencia is positioned in the northern portion of Cordova where it meets Lapu-Lapu City, a place where a ring of road networks traverses one another. This connects residents within and beyond the island. Due to the influx of infrastructure developments surrounding Valencia, it is now destined to become the nearest urban growth center from Cebu City. Owning a piece of Valencia is akin to owning a prized possession that will appreciate in value over time.
