Pampanga Projects and Constructions

Construction of Projects in Angeles City and Pampanga!

Since there are only a few Capampangan forumers, I decided to create one general projects and construction thread.

Underconstruction Mid-rise along McArthur Hi-way in Balibago.









This is directly across Casino Filipino. Trust me, Angeles is in a mid-rise construction frenzy right now. Kaso medyo scattered eh. Lalo na sa Malabanias and Balibago, talagang kabi kabilaan ang construction. I just wish the local gov't do something about the traffic situation.

Grand living at Grandview Tower
http://www.sunstar.com.ph/pampanga/g...randview-tower

ANGELES CITY- Luxurious living at an affordable price is now here at Grandview Tower, the first ever 7-storey five-star condominium and hotel located in the heart of Don Juico Avenue, Balibago in Angeles City.

Soon to open in December of this year with 138 rooms and world class amenities which include outdoor fine dining, casual dining, business center, 24-Hour travel agency, coffee shop, convenience store, massage center, boutiques, roof deck putting green, swimming pool, fitness center, sauna room, wifi internet and satellite cable TV.

During Saturday’s launching of Grandview Tower’s model units, Philippine Land Group (PLG) president and CEO Maurice Van M. said that it’s all systems go for the completion of the much awaited project.

"We are so excited about Pampanga, particularly Angeles City and Mabalacat because we believe that real growth will happen here in the next few years. Throughout Asia this will be the growth area. We are very proud of that and we want to contribute to this development. This is the hub of Asia," Van M. said.

"Our aim is to provide a vibrant condo-hotel which is not only authentic and diverse but will instill a sense of pride and sophistication to unit owners, a feeling of passion and elegance every time you come home to Grandview,” Van M. added.

He said that PLG also aim to show more Filipino furniture in their housing projects in order to give owners a sneak preview of local furniture so they can experience a piece of Pampanga.

Van M. lauded Architects Andy Gulapa and Owen Macalino for conceptualizing the project from the very beginning and for working 48 hours for the past two days to ensure the completion of the model units.

August 8, 2007 saw the ground breaking of the Grandview Tower Condotel project in this city which commenced construction in June 2008. It is now nearing completion.

PLG was conceptualized and organized July 1, 2006. Their first project in Pampanga was a joint venture with another developer to complete the Grandview Heights 1 Subdivision composing of 123 housing units. On February 23, 2007 PLG initiated the development of Grandview Heights 2 Subdivision with 211 housing units as well as a commercial area.

PLG is now working hard to commence construction on their third subdivision located in Camachilles, Mabalacat, having 574 housing units plus a large commercial area.

PLG is dedicated and keen on delivering a total housing program with innovative designs that conform to the buyer's needs and capability.

The backbone of the company is staffed with personnel that boast more than 80 years of combined experience in the real-state industry. PLG aims to break new ground with such innovative projects like the currently rising Grandview Tower in Angeles City.

Philippine Land group will strive for more innovative and prestigious developments in the Philippines.

PLG Vice President Arnel DG Torres encouraged foreign and local would-be buyers to invest now, saying that their investments is self liquidating and is a good investment considering that in the tourism industry more and more condo-hotels are in demand.

“Your investment can pay for itself within a few years. Owning your own hotel room with a steady income is easy. First visit our showroom located at Grandview Tower, Don Juico Avenue, Clark View, Angeles City. Second, our trained sales executive will guide you in selecting your unit, and third, just complete the initial paperwork and pay the reservation fee of P50,000 and your done,” Torres said.

Texas Instruments, Clark

$1.5 BILLION investment poured into Clark, Pampanga. The facility is LEED Certified GOLD.

During construction:


The site now:


Texas Instruments facility in Clark awarded LEED gold certification
http://ph.news.yahoo.com/mb/20100611...k-ae83b27.html

CLARK FREEPORT, Philippines -- Texas Instruments (TI), Inc., announced that the US Green Building Council (USGBC) has awarded its new assembly/test facility here a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification, the first gold-certified facility in the Philippines.

"The LEED Gold certification is a validation of TI's commitment to environmental stewardship and to the health of the communities where it operates," Bing Viera, managing director of TI's operations in the Philippines, said. "The Clark facility was designed from the ground up to maximize manufacturing capabilities and minimize environmental impact."

The newly constructed 780,000-square foot facility is located on the former Clark airbase in Pampanga.

TI has had a manufacturing presence in the Philippines for more than 30 years. It earned a LEED-NC silver certification on its Phase V expansion project in Baguio City last year. It was the Philippine's first LEED certified building.

TI began using USGBC LEED rating systems to guide improvements for construction and sustainability in the early 2000s when the company constructed the world's first LEED gold-certified semiconductor manufacturing facility, RFAB, in Richardson, Texas.

TI Clark site's sustainable design and construction features include:

-- A highly reflective roof to reduce heat gain. It is the first TI site to install a section of vegetative roofing. The 11,000 square foot roof area is covered with living plants to help reduce heat gain and slow water runoff.

-- Natural day lighting is used where possible, and efficient lights with sensors and controls take care of the balance of the lighting needs. TI utilizes a desiccant wheel air handling unit to provide dehumidified fresh air. Traditional chilled water cooling removes some moisture and cools the air while the desiccant wheel absorbs the remaining moisture.

-- More than 20 percent of the materials in the building were made from recycled content and 40 percent of all construction materials were locally produced.

-- Low-emitting materials such as paints, adhesives, sealants, and carpeting were used to minimize off-gassing and provide for better indoor air quality.

-- More than 96 percent of the construction waste was diverted from the landfill through reuse or recycling. A truck load of waste crating material was donated to the Philippines National Apiary Project, which turned the wood into working beehives for honey production. Construction waste was also donated to neighboring organizations, including a school, church, and local indigenous community group. (AMR)

Pangilinan to pour billions in Pampanga projects
By Jun Malig
Central Luzon Desk
First Posted 22:11:00 06/28/2010

Filed Under: business, Construction & Property
CLARK FREEPORT — Manuel V. Pangilinan, chair of telecommunications giant Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT), plans to invest billions of pesos in tourism and transportation-related projects in Pampanga.

Vice Governor Joseller Guiao disclosed this last week during the 30th general membership meeting and induction of new members of the Pampanga Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PamCham) at the Holiday Inn here.

“Very recently, President Macapagal-Arroyo, Governor (Lilia) Pineda and myself were with MVP (Pangilinan’s acronym) and he revealed that he plans to build a tourist destination—a water theme park like the one in Camarines Sur—along the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway exit in Floridablanca where both foreign and local tourists can indulge in swimming, wakeboarding, boating and other activities,” Guiao said.

Guiao said Pangilinan was also designing a dedicated railway system that would link the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport and Metro Manila.

He said the railway system may be put up at the middle portion of the 84-km North Luzon Expressway (NLEx), which is being operated and managed by the Manila North Tollways Corp. (MNTC).

MNTC is controlled by Pangilinan’s Metro Pacific Investment Corp.

In their meeting, Guiao said Pangilinan had made known his intention to bag the construction and management contract for a new DMIA terminal in partnership with San Miguel Corp. president Ramon Ang.

Guiao said the high speed railway system would complement the terminal project at the airport here.

Earlier, the MNTC bagged the contract to maintain and operate the 94-kilometer long Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway. It also operates the 8-km Subic Tipo Road that connects SCTEx to the Subic Bay Freeport.

Tarlaqueno stars in Kapampangan comedy film

ARRON VILLAFLOR of Tarlac City topbills the Cinema One Originals entry by Jason Paul Laxamana of Angeles City, entitled ASTRO MAYABANG.



Other major actors included in the cast are John "Sweet" Lapus (with roots from Candaba, Pampanga), Hermes Bautista of the City of San Fernando, Pampanga, Megan Young, and Marco Morales.

Set mainly in Angeles City (with some scenes shot in Clark, Porac, and Magalang), “Astro Mayabang” is a satire about an insecure guy named Astro (Villaflor) who embraces as his personal mission the task of promoting Filipino pride through the only way he knows how -- buying and showing off Filipino pride-themed clothes and accessories. He comes across Dawn (Young), a Filipino-American girl seeking to learn about her Filipino roots. Will Astro be able to show Dawn the Filipino greatness he keeps on flaunting?

90% of the dialogues will be in the Kapampangan language.

Movie is coming out this November in Manila.

Search ASTRO MAYABANG in Facebook and Like our official movie page to get the freshest updates.


Below are some teasers of the movie:
