With its resort-style amenities, Primeworld targets to cater VPs and the A, B, and C market as well as people who are working abroad who plan to invest in a unit in Mactan Island, Cebu.

“The residential towers will also be Airbnb friendly,” said Zafra.

Asked why the developers choose to invest in Mactan, Zafra said that Primeworld understands that the city is booming in terms of the demand for property developments.

The local is also approximately 20 minutes from the Mactan Cebu International Airport. And with the construction of the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (Third Bridge), the demand for housing development is also expected to rise.

With the rise, Primeworld is looking into building more condominium towers in the city and in mainland Cebu.
