SM City renovation updates
Posted on June 19, 2011 by damarre

Contractors for the renovation of SM City are working every night after mall hours.

As shown in the photos, there isn’t much to see except for the cloth covered steel scaffolding where workers use in climbing up the walls to re-install some new design concepts.



Below is a sample of the newly-finished wall. The re-tiling of the mall floor was the first to be completed. Also ongoing is some re-coloring (cladding) of portions of the ceiling and ledge.



There isn’t much change too n the mall’s exteriors except for the changing of the claddings.



SM City still gets the crowds on weekends but stands to lose more if the management is just contented on such mediocre improvements. But hopefully, top management of SM might still have something up their sleeves to counter the rapid commercial investment in the downtown area. Anyway, SM City has a township to serve.

PROJECT WATCH: Primavera Residences as of June 19, 2011
Posted on June 19, 2011 by damarre




A month after the signing of the loan agreement, construction of the 10-storey green condominium project has progressed significantly with vertical works now going to the second level of the first tower.

As observed, half of the building is rising first which is common in constructing wide multi-level buildings.











Being the first green condo project in Mindanao, this will become not just a showcase but a landmark accomplishment when completed.

Completion/Continuation of Cagayan de Oro Third Bridge and Access Road
Post Published: 25 June 2011
Author: bwm



CAGAYAN DE ORO THIRD BRIDGE

The project: Completion/Continuation of Cagayan de Oro Third Bridge and Access Road has several phases. The bridge proper with a length of 352 LM had been completed and the ongoing works focus on the construction of access road and coastal road.

The majority of the phases of the project ( Phase I – VIII ) started in 1997 and are already completed. Presently, Phase IX is ongoing with the works focused on the road concreting of Bayabas Section-West Bound Terminal-Iponan Bridge III Junction, Igpit, Opol, National road; road concreting along barangays Kauswagan and Bayabas, and graveling of coastal roads along barangays Lapasan and Gusa. The ongoing road concreting has a total length of 14.423 kms. and a total cost of P642,824,622.51.



CAGAYAN DE ORO THIRD BRIDGE

Aside from the road works, the construction of Iponan Bridge III was completed with a length of 80.00 L.M. and a cost of P 187,939,433.69.

As of press time, Phase IX has an actual accomplishment of 94.850% with a positive slippage of 0.060 %.

To complete the entire project, this office has still an immediate need of P 300,000,000.00 for the payment of Road-Right-of Way (RROW) acquisition along Lapasan to the National Highways of Igpit, Opol, Misamis Oriental. Another needed release to complete the project is the P200,000,000.00 for Phase X that will focus on the additional construction of 620 linear meter Coastal Road along Barangay Gusa without Aggregate Base Course and Portland Concrete Cement Pavement (PCCP) and the construction of Kulambog Bridge along Kulambog, Lapasan, this City. When funding will be available, works identified for Phase X will be started this year.

As programmed, by CY 2012 the work will focus at Phase XI with a needed release of P355,000,000.00. It will be centred on the completion of the Cagayan de Oro Coastal By-pass Road by working on the Junction of J.R. Borja Extension and Gusa National Highway, the Rotonda at Barangay Puntod, the construction of Bitan-ag Creek at Barangay Lapasan and the payment of Road-Right of Way (P50,000,000.00).

When completed, this huge project will be an enormous help to the travelling public along Butuan-Cagayan-Iligan Road (BCIR) by having a smooth sailing travel since heavy-loaded trucks will be rerouted to avoid traffic congestion.

PROJECT WATCH: Recto-Velez flyover project now underway
Posted on June 26, 2011 by damarre





Construction of the CM Recto-A. Velez flyover has began with heavy equipment and initial drilling being undertaken at the site.

Two lanes of CM Recto is now closed to traffic with dozens of workers seen onsite. You could see some excavations below perhaps on the piers of the flyover project as well as concrete piles.



Work is on both approaches of the flyover with the area fronting UCCP Church shown below.



The city deactivated the traffic lights in the intersection with RTA personnel manning the traffic. Of course, because of the construction, traffic has become slow in the area but hopefully when this is finished, it will help improve traffic in the area. More photos below.

More demo LED traffic lights installed
Posted on June 26, 2011 by damarre





More modern traffic lights using Light Emitting Diode (LED) were recently installed particularly along Corrales Avenue at the junctions of JR Borja and Yacapin streets, respectively. The main difference between the latest system installed and the first ones in Carmen and Ororama Megacenter junctions is the addition of pedestrian LED signals as shown above.

There are also distinct differences between the Corrales-JR Borja and Corrales-Yacapin junctions. The Corrales-JR Borja system uses a timer for both vehicle and pedestrian signals shown below.









On the other hand, the Corrales-Yacapin junction uses a system which shows a “decreasing” LED light as a timer to change signals while the pedestrian signal has no timer and simply displays the walk and stop signs as shown.

















The formal bidding is said to be done next month.

Laguindingan airport interchange proposed


CAGAYAN DE ORO -- An interchange project for Laguindingan Airport has been endorsed for approval by the Infrastructure and Utilities Development Committee (InfraCom) of Northern Mindanao’s Regional Development Council (RDC-10).

"When the Laguindingan Airport will be completed by the first quarter of 2012, traffic congestion is expected with increase in volume of traffic along the national highway, specifically along the junction of the Iligan-Butuan-Cagayan de Oro Road and the airport access road," Jaime H. Pacampara, who heads the secretariat of RDC-10’s InfraCom, said in an interview last week. "This airport road interchange project should be in place to affect traffic congestion prior to the operation of the Laguindingan Airport."

In a meeting last June 14 of the Special Committee of the Laguindingan Airport Development Project, officials of the regional office of the Department of Public Works and Highways presented a proposal to build an interchange along the national highway and linking to the Laguindingan Airport access road.

The proposed interchange will consist of a two-laned elevated highway with an estimated length of 1.5 kilometers including a 25-ton, 60-linear-meter bridge.

The project is estimated to cost a total of about P500 million.

"Due to the urgency and importance of the project as a complementary infrastructure support facility [of Laguindingan Airport], the RDC-10 InfraCom recommended for approval and endorsement by the full council meeting scheduled on June 28," Modesto C. Babaylan, private sector representative and InfraCom co-chairman, said separately.

The Laguindingan Airport was conceptualized as a replacement for Lumbia Airport in Cagayan de Oro City and Balo-i Airport in Iligan City.

Constraints imposed by the terrain surrounding both airports preclude their expansion to cope with rising air passenger and cargo traffic due to increased economic activity in Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon and the two Lanao provinces.

Besides terrain constraints, both the Lumbia and Balo-i airports are situated at relatively high altitudes and adverse weather conditions at both sites have occasionally resulted in canceled flights.

Latest available data from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines show passenger traffic through Lumbia Airport rising 19.2% to 1.3 million last year from 1.1 million in 2009.

Cargo traffic grew even faster by 38% to 22,244.56 metric tons (MT) in 2010 from 16,112.72 MT in 2009. -- Michael D. Baños

RANDOM SHOTS: Nazareno Church’s new altar
Posted by Damarre on Jul.05, 2011 in Investments


photo by Tau'ma Udasco

It’s been almost five months since I posted (LINK) the tarpaulin installed at Jesus Nazareno Parish Church about their proposed altar renovation. Not until today that a good friend took a snapshot of the newly-renovated altar shown above.

Compare it with the perspective of the altar which was depicted in the tarpaulin.

I guess the contractor really did its job well.

DropZone soon at Dahilayan
Posted by Damarre on Jul.05, 2011 in Proposal, Tourism

Cable TV pioneer Engr. Elpie Paras again reiterated in his facebook account the putting up of DropZone, another adrenaline rush thrill ride amid the rising popularity of his Dahilayan Aventure Park.

In my post last February (LINK), I mentioned that DropZone is a base jumping simulator as announced by Engr. Paras. However, in his recent wall post in his FB account, pictures below show Engr. Paras trying out the Sky Coaster at Six Flags, a known chain of theme parks in the US.

In my opinion, this version is much safer than the base jumping simulator. In Sky Coaster, riders in groups of 1 to 3 are winched to the top of a launch tower and then dropped towards the ground, swinging from a cable tether back and forth until brought to a rest. Sky Coasters can range from 100–300 feet (30.5–91.4 m) in height.

Well, whatever the final DropZone will be, it’s still going to be quite an adventure…to the max!

Construction of the 195-meter Puerto flyover is well on target of their August completion based on the pictures gathered today.

The Bugo approach of the flyover has been completed and the contractor is now working on the flyover connection and Puerto approach. As shown, they are now in the process of installing another bridge component. They have also started installing the steel railings. Traffic is still slow but moving.

Once completed, this will be the city’s first and by yearend, there will be three with the other flyover projects now underway with approximate completion targets of September – October.

The City Government of Cagayan de Oro has began the construction of the Macanhan Flyover.

As a result, a major traffic jam occurred at the junction which surprised many motorists when the City’s Road and Traffic Administration (RTA) implemented a re-routing scheme with little prior unfo dissemination. Masterson Avenue is now closed to all motorists as the large pile driver occupied the existing two lanes of the road. Both uptown-bound and downtown-bound vehicles from uptown area will have to take the SM-Landfill Road while another alternative will take the more distant Pelaez Bridge and South Diversion Road.

The project is scheduled to be completed in four (4) months. As shown, the re-routing removed the traffic in the area and the contractor can now focused on the project with little disturbance. Adjoining properties will be affected.

Pueblo de Oro Development plans solar-powered condo


CAGAYAN DE ORO -- Pueblo de Oro Development Corp. formally launched plans for what it claimed to be Mindanao’s first eco-friendly condominium on Tuesday with solar panels to be installed on the roof to produce around 150 kilowatts peak renewable energy.

The project, dubbed “Primavera Residences,” is a 10-storey twin-tower Italian-designed condominium with architectural features that promise to cut lighting and cooling costs for tenants.

Expected completion date for its Tower A is set for July 2012.

“Primavera Residences complements other green efforts in the Pueblo de Oro Township, including the 40-hectare Pueblo Urban Rainforest and the electric shuttles that would soon be serving Township residents,” said Rodolfo L. Meñes, Pueblo de Oro Development vice-president and general manager.

“When the ‘Net Metering Law’ will be implemented in Mindanao in the next two years in our estimate, the photovoltaic cells will feed electricity to the local distribution utility grid,” Romolo V. Nati, president of architectural firm ItalPinas, said.

“[In the meantime], we will be using the energy produced from the solar cells to directly power the common and shared areas of Primavera,” he said. -- MDB
