LIFE IN THE STREETS

Cebu Living - - Special Feature - By DENISE DANIELLE AL­CAN­TARA

Walk on the street and feel the pulse of the city and its peo­ple. Ev­ery great city has a no­table street flocked by both lo­cals and tourists. Lon­don’s Ox­ford Street is home to fash­ion fa­vorites and spe­cialty stores; Paris’ Champs-Élysées is a boule­vard flanked by cafés and lux­ury shops; Sin­ga­pore’s Or­chard Road is the city’s most fa­mous shop­ping des­ti­na­tion, and many more. Pat­terned along the lines of the most fa­mous boule­vards across the globe, Gate­walk Cen­tral, a part­ner­ship be­tween Ayala Land and AboitizLand, cre­ates a modern it­er­a­tion that in­fuses busi­ness, lifestyle, and en­ter­tain­ment in one sprawl­ing de­vel­op­ment spring­ing from what will be an iconic street in Cebu.

Modern Con­nec­tions

Stroll through boule­vards with in­ter­ac­tive pub­lic art, cross from one dis­trict to another through tree-lined walk­ways, so­cial­ize in pub­lic parks made for recre­ation, and be able to do your daily er­rands along the way. A con­ver­gence of busi­ness, lifestyle, en­ter­tain­ment, and na­ture con­nected through boule­vards and av­enues is the an­swer to the loom­ing plight of ur­ban con­ges­tion. Pro­mot­ing holis­tic liv­ing within your reach, Gate­walk Cen­tral pro­motes a unique, safe, and sus­tain­able com­mu­nity within Man­daue City.

Ac­ces­si­bil­ity is one key ad­van­tage for liv­ing in a com­mu­nity like Gate­walk Cen­tral. Schools and uni­ver­si­ties, hos­pi­tals, gov­ern­ment agen­cies and of­fices, and trans­port terminals are all within a 5-kilo­me­ter ra­dius. Also, with Gate­walk’s di­rect ac­cess to the North Bus Ter­mi­nal and its close prox­im­ity to Mac­tanCebu In­ter­na­tional Air­port and the Cebu Ferry Ter­mi­nal, this de­vel­op­ment also aims to con­nect with its neigh­bor­ing cities and prov­inces, bring­ing in vis­i­tors from all walks of life.

Dy­namic City

The ever-chang­ing city land­scape of a fast grow­ing com­mu­nity de­mands an eclec­tic thor­ough­fare. Be­ing the ground zero for your ev­ery lifestyle need, Gate­walk Cen­tral will serve as a re­tail hub, a busi­ness dis­trict, and also an en­ter­tain­ment cen­ter.

The es­tate will house an edgy shop­ping dis­trict called Gate­walk Av­enue, a stretch of re­pur­posed con­tainer vans ac­com­mo­dat­ing lo­cal and global fash­ion brands and restau­rants. On the op­po­site end of Gate­walk’s En­try Boule­vard sits an Ayala Mall that will fea­ture the first Land­mark Depart­ment Store out­side Lu­zon.

Aside from the shop­ping dis­tricts, it will also host busi­ness of­fices and res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ments, such as Avida.

Green Sanc­tu­ary

The han­ker­ing for green and open spa­ces has be­come a norm among city dwellers. The need to es­cape has been more preva­lent than ever. Res­i­dents tend to search in­spi­ra­tion else­where; but with a de­vel­op­ment abun­dant with trees, parks, and plazas, tak­ing a breather from the bustling lifestyle has never been this more con­ve­nient.

Promis­ing an en­ter­pris­ing street life, a highly net­worked com­mu­nity, and pedes­trian- only dis­tricts, Gate­walk Cen­tral is the first peo­ple- cen­tric de­vel­op­ment in the Visayan re­gion. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.gate­walk­cen­tral.com.
