(SPOT.ph) South Road Properties in Cebu City is shaping up to be a crowd-drawing destination as mixed-use developments, retail complexes, and other tourist sites break ground in the area. This includes the five-star NUSTAR Resort and Casino, touted as the "biggest lifestyle and entertainment destination outside Metro Manila." It is slated to open in 2022 on Kawit Island, much to the excitement of high-rollers, tourists, and shoppers in the region. The ultra-luxury integrated resort also boasts a strategic location along the east coast of Cebu, which is now better linked to the Mactan Cebu International Airport through the soon-to-open Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway.
