DAVAO CITY—The construction of high-rise structures including malls and high-end housing subdivisions here has boosted the excitement level of the property-development sector in this city, an executive of an architectural and engineering design firm said.


Phany Castillo-Ho, marketing communication consultant of Far East Associates, said that construction took off anew after the 2008-09 global recession, with the construction of the P5-billion Ayala-owned Abreeza Mall as the biggest so far this year and with the second SM mall to be finished next year.

“These are exciting times and Davao City benefits the most because investors are looking for peace and order in a progressive economy and favorable weather conditions,” she told the BusinessMirror at their booth outside the Davao Investment Conference hall of the Marco Polo Hotel here on Friday.

Being constructed were the 10-story hotel and the 26-story condominium buildings of the Ayalas. To break ground soon was the 33-story mixed-use building of the Francisco-Tan-Cruz group, all within the Abreeza Mall area.

“And there are lots of subdivisions, many of them for the high-end market, that are being constructed,” she said.

The opportunities seen in Davao City appeared to have wrought a contagion effect after other big shopping-mall owners were poised to establish their presence in other areas in Mindanao, Ho said.

“Watch out for these ones. It’s really good for construction and real estate,” she said.

Only in July this year, Director Jesus Motoomull of the Construction Industry Authority of the Philippines (CIAP) said
Davao City is the “booming city in the country today,” with the total number of contractors here and the rest of the region reaching 400.

This number doubled that of Cebu, which had only 200. Of the 153 total applications filed at the offices of the Department of Trade and Industry, where the CIAP is based as an attached agency, Davao City processed 43 of these applications.

“Davao is definitely a high-growth region today, with a lot of projects for both government and the private sector,” Motoomull said.

Edrin Kaye C. Pedro, project manager at the Far East Associates, also told the BusinessMirror that the company has noticed an increase in the number of its clients compared “not only five or seven years ago, but as of even 2008.”

Pedro handed out a brochure of the projects that the company has handled so far, with its strength lying at its added service of already incorporating urban planning to the design of the building and other projects.

“We are the only one here offering green technology to the design and actual construction of our projects,” she said.

Ho said that while the owner may spend “a little bit more” to construct a “green” building, the savings that green technology would have over the years would easily cover their initial investment.

AEON TOWERS 34F

This condo project is showing its marketing campaign strength displaying many banners around DAVAO just like this one in MacArthur Highway...



Pretty amazing though, the lighting effect kills it.

Davao City Construction BOOM Continues



TV Patrol News TRANSLATION:

Anchor: Construction boom is noticeable in Davao City for the year 2010 and 2011. One example is the construction of Star Mall located at Mintal and an additional Star Mall located in a modern commercial center in Bajada, Davao City. Also, SM Group of Companies are going to build a hotel near SM Lanang. Vina Araneta on patrol.

Lourdes Macalindong: Because we know that Davao is getting to be an international destination aside from Cebu. I mean, down in Mindanao its really Davao that I think is the, you know, the most logical place to invest. We'll have a bridge way that will connect the convention center to the hotel so its going to be very accessible as well to the commercial complex.

Vina Araneta: Aside from the high end 5-storey residential condominium in Camella Northpoint which is adding another building right now, comes another project which is a lifestyle commercial center that has more than 20 retail stores, supermarket, restaurants and a wellness center. There is also an amphitheater that is designed to blend seamlessly to the more than hundreds pine tress inside the complex. According to Camella Homes General Manager the construction of the 500 million peso project will start next year simultaneous with the other Star Mall project in Mintal.

Marlon Escalicas: We already have a residential component in Camella Northpoint and to be able to compliment to this residential we actually allotted almost a hectar right there in front to become our commercial center, to be able to offer something different and something unique right here in Davao.

Vina Araneta: Even the British inspired 2-storey mansion is being renovated to become a fine dining restaurant and a function hall.

Marlon Escalicas: The mall concept has actually evolve, it has become a lifestyle center meaning you are there to relax, to rest specially our project is located at the center of Davao.

Vina Araneta: The latest count from the city engineers division office building permit division, 5091 permits are already released from January to August. According to the city engineers office, there is an increase of 106.7% of the total number of permits released compare to last year. In addition, there are more people who are coming in to their office to inquire for a building permit application. From the 5091 permits released, 3665 of these are residential or a subdivision like the Palmetto Village in Ma-a. 631 are commercial buildings like the Gaisano Mall expansion.

Jaime Aladin: There are really many who are applying for a building permit like it cannot be stopped because of Davao City's achievements.... we received many awards.

Anchor: (yada yada yada she's saying goodbye)
