Korean investors in De Oro go into real estate

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (MindaNews/3 Aug) -- A group of Korean investors are planning to put up a 100-door apartment in the uptown area of this city as more and more of their nationals are coming over to settle for good. Mayor Vicente Y. Emano, as quoted by the Philippine Information Agency, said he is scheduled to meet with the 70 Korean investors to discuss the planned apartment. Emano said that the Korean businessmen are spending billions of pesos for their real estate projects, like the construction of luxurious apartments and villas near the Korean and Filipino-owned Hotel Koresco at the Pueblo de Oro Township.

The mayor said that the influx of Korean and other foreign investors speaks of the growing trust and confidence placed by the international business community on the city government as an investor-friendly local government unit.

Aside from the Korean investments, two other giant construction companies in the country have reportedly expressed interest to undertake the reclamation of more than 280 hectares of land in two barangays in the city.

These projects include a 60-hectare reclamation project in Bonbon and another 160 hectares in Barangay Bayabas.

Once completed, Emano said, these reclamation projects are ideal for warehouses, subdivisions and private wharves, among others.

Global davao, yeah, i agree, sobrang ewan talaga ang Lumbia airport, but it looks just like any other domestic airport in the country(Iloilo,Bacolod,Baguio,ect)

The new airport construction is now on horizontal works. Next year pa daw ang vertical works, and expected to be done ny 2010.. "sigh", tagal pa nun.

i don't think SM will be affected by the time airport operations transfer to LIA. Coz SM's market is basically the people living in subdivisions around it.

I had already heard about the Laguindingan airport proposal even before the proposals for Iloilo and Bacold airports. Now the two Visayas airports are nearing completion while the LIA is still in the "works," and the expected opening date is 2010 yet. What caused the long delay?

And it is true that the owners of the new airport lot are the Ayalas who donated it (actually part of a huge land bank)? They will surely make a lot of money from the surrounding lots, when the airport becomes operational.

On building and burning bridges

By Joe Pallugna / August 14, 2006

AS Cagayan de Oro City moves into the next two decades, there is nothing comparable to the extreme necessity and outright usefulness than the bridges that cross our great river.

And as in any civilization, development always start on riverbanks. Rivers are not only sources of food for fishermen and irrigation water for farmers, they also provide for the best way of travel, transport and trade.

Any great city in the world has a great river. New York, Shanghai, Manila, Hongkong, Paris, London and all the great cities of the world have major rivers. And when they pour out into the sea, these great cities have great ports for ships to dock into and unload and load their cargoes and passengers.

This is so true with Cagayan de Oro. We have a great river and a great port area. So we have this great opportunity.

So Mayor Dongkoy Emano can never be wrong in building bridges over Cagayan de Oro River with earnest to capitalize on the mode of water transport. As one realizes, rivers and seas constrict the means to transport if left to themselves. Siltation inevitably ensues. Yet, these waterways can be exploited to the fullest if used as major transways.

By building bridges, the city is forced to make a comprehensive plan for dike building along the riverbanks, for dredging to avoid siltation and uncontrollable flooding and river-overflowing and the general plan of river-control and management.

Along these plans include beautification of the river embankments and the riversides where people could jog, play, watch the water flow and keep their peace. They then appreciate more the beauty of our river.

Thus building bridges across Cagayan de Oro River is a very wise and timely idea.

After the Ysalina Bridge, the second is the Marcos Bridge, third is the Pelaez Bridge, fourth is the Puntod Bridge, fifth is the Carmen-Macasandig Bridge, and sixth is the J.R. Borja-Carmen Bridge. From two bridges to six bridges in less than 10 years! That’s a great feat, really.

Only one with a vision for development and progress could think of that. Not even the past three mayors of our city did ever envision building bridges over our great river. Not one even accomplished one beyond getting millions of pesos for a feasibility study that never got off the ground––although all the P23 million have already disappeared days before election day in 1998.

And bridges really are that important. That’s why Israel bombed all the bridges leading to and out of Lebanon and why the US forces bombed all the bridges vital to travel in the invasion of Iraq.

Bridges really are that important. I’m sure the Spanish government thought of this importance when they decided to finance the JR Borja-Carmen Bridge project.

With six bridges in all, the comprehensive plan for river control, dredging, dike-building, siltation management, boat-traffic, safety standards and economic infrastructure-building will be finalized. This is the end-result of all these bridge-building binge of Mayor Emano.

I’m sure there is no better way. Building bridges has always been desired by civilizations past. From the Tigris and Euphrates rivers did civilization begin. From Cagayan de Oro River will our city move into the next century. ...


With these passable bridges now, two more to be completed in the next couple of months and another bridge courtesy of Spain, we are on the road to progress six times faster. ...

Alam mo Francis, maganda siguro kung magpropose sila ng mga vehicukar overpass sa mga junctions ng National high-way. Like the following: Patag road-Bulua higway, Westbound Terminal-National higway, Kauswagan Junction, Gusa highway-JR Borja road, Puerto highway-Bukidnon junction. These vehicular overpass deliver safe and fast travel to Cagayan de Oro's main highway.

Looks like a sister airport of the new Bacolod Airport in Silay, but not of the new Iloilo airport thats being built. IMHO.
