It was a surprise when SM chose to build a mall in Consolacion. Located next to the vibrant Mandaue City, Consolacion is laid back and provincial. But personally, I agree that it is a good investment because progress is pushing Metro Cebu to move outwards the city center - northwards and southwards. And in the north, real estate developers have been developing housing subdivisions up to the towns of Compostela and even Danao.
For now, SM City Consolacon is more basically functional compared to SM City Cebu and perhaps to the coming SM City Seaside. Hopefully we look forward to a more varied choices especially in restaurants and shops.
