Mindanao’s tallest building
to rise in Koronadal

Mindanao Daily Mirror
May 14, 2010


Mindanao’s tallest building will soon rise in Koronadal City with the projected completion of the P250-million Amparo Suites in May next year.

“It will have a total of 21 floors with a helipad on the rooftop” said Australia-based Filipino architect Sol Uy Flores during a press conference held Wednesday at the Doctors Clinic and Hospital Inc.

The ground breaking ceremony was earlier held at the site - a 7,000 square meter lot located beside the sister companies DCHI and Saint Alexius College.

A capsule with a blue print and signatures of the board of directors was buried by DCHI president Dr. Arturo “Tatay” Pingoy.

Also present were Rep. Arthur “Dodo” Pingoy and his wife Anabelle, Dr. Nanette Pingoy-Franco and husband John, Dr. Albert “Bobot” Pingoy and Karl Frederick Sims of Coalesce Hotel and Resorts Management.

Koronadal City presently has no decent big hotel for big conventions. And even if big conventions or events are held in the city or province, the visitors are usually brought to nearby General Santos City for billeting.

“This is one way of promoting and helping the province. We encourage more investors here in South Cotabato,” Rep. Pingoy, who is leading the gubernatorial race in last Monday’s elections.

Sims, on the other hand, said that they are aiming to make Amparo Suites a “four-star superior hotel”. He added that they can help the tourism not only in South Cotabato but also are willing to help the other hotels in Mindanao.

“We have a very good team. That is why we think this is viable,” said Dr. Albert Pingoy, who also owns AYP Holdings.

The Amparo Suites can also be a good training ground for the hotel and restaurant management students of Saint Alexius College.

But Kims said that they will have a good solid and constant training program and “will look for every small details to give comfort to all our guests.”

The Amparo Suites will also be the first and only building that has a “twisting or spiral design”. The construction will start on May 18 and hopefully it will be completed in one year.

The tower building is inspired by the deformed cylindrical shape of a tree and the aerodynamics of aerofoil fins. It will feature an iconic landmark of Koronadal City, characterized by vertical slots with private view.

Amparo Suites encapsulates speed, fluid dynamics, future technology and natural patterns of organization created from a humble beginning.

“No worry on earthquakes since this building will have the best technology we have from Australia. And we have already tested the soil,” said Flores, also a Master civil engineer from Perth Australia.

The ground floor will be the commercial area and parking space. The hotel will have a coffee shop, lobby restaurant, function rooms, maximum space function rooms, private rooms, VIP Lounge, fine dining restaurant, private exclusive offices, VIP exclusive restaurant, chill out bar, gym, spa and a 25-meter swimming pool.

i was in marbel last may 11, and i noticed there were bulldozers clearing the area fronting st alexius college just beside doctors hospital. i thought, another project for marbel. i never thought this grandiose! great for marbel. this is another building being constructed near the office of the Department of Agriculture Region 12 but there is no billboard. seems big also since the foundation seems strong and big. hope amparo suites' construction will start soon
