For several years since the Westbound Terminal and Public Market was opened, there were little development in the surrounding areas except for the BIR Regional Office, the Montecarlo Fish Landing Complex and the UKC Warehouse.
Not until the coastal road was opened to traffic that investors have started to cache in on the vast economic potential of the area. The construction of CityMall Bulua right across the terminal and market complex is a start of good things to come. Shown below is the completion of the fencing of the Bulua property and the CityMall signage already posted. CityMall might not be as big as SM and Ayala but is advertised as a community mall catering to the surrounding community of the complex which could include Bulua, Bayabas and Kauswagan areas.
