ayala-cebu11Ayala Land’s property arm in Cebu recently opened The Terraces – a circular two-storey cluster of coffee shops, resto bars and chic restaurants in lush alfresco settings.  Unveiled last year and just a few weeks before Christmas, Ayala Cebu Mall’s expansion is now the hottest meet-up-and-say-hi venue in town; the sort of “in-place” thing to see and be seen.  Nestled at the center are well manicured lawns and gardens (larger, better and greener than those at Greenbelt Makati) complete with man-made water falls and fully grown tropical plants; further accentuating the greeneries.  There’s also a convenient pathway to and from the Cebu Marriot Hotel; affording its guests some last minute shopping or quick make-overs prior to lunch-meetings or dinner dates.   This latest vote of confidence in Cebu is another feather to its cap; cementing its hold as the preferred destination and investment site in the country south of Metro Manila.
