East Gate Shoppes Makes Waves In Cebu Retail

East Gate’s commercial component is called East Gate Shoppes, and is a landmark in its own right. Its superior location on the corner of Cardinal Rosales Avenue and Pope John Paul II Avenue in Cebu City places it mere meters away from the city’s premier business districts, drawing in an unmatched market and network.
With a total of three storeys, a range of business needs are catered to with a variety of retail spaces and innovative concepts at East Gate Shoppes. The ground floor has ideal spaces for restaurants and retailers requiring a storefront, with the largest unit at 688.90 square meters.
On Level 2, The Kitchens at Taft East Gate are cooking up a storm of new ideas. These are commercial kitchens for rent, which are optimized for delivery service and will cost less to operate than a traditional restaurant setup. A driver’s lounge and exclusive parking space are set aside for delivery drivers in order to smoothen the process. This is the first of its kind and scale in Cebu City. And, should a tenant wish to eventually add some seating to their space, there are select units that can be converted to accommodate diners looking for a quick bite.
Smaller commercial spaces are available on Level 3, and most of these units face an al fresco area for excellent ventilation. This is also where a designated ATM room will be found.
Besides securing a highly coveted location within Metro Cebu, businesses gain a home advantage with East Gate Shoppes. East Gate’s residential component has become one of Cebu’s best-selling condominium towers, and plans for offices and hotel are in the works.
