PROJECT WATCH: Ayala Mall will be named Centrio
Posted on February 11, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




It’s official and it’s hot from the frying pan….Ayala’s mall development at the heart of Cagayan de Oro will be named CENTRIO.

The tarpaulin was being installed this morning when I happened to pass by. Unfortunately, the large tarp is still blocked by a few vending stalls so I couldn’t take a wider shot. But the thing is that it’s gonna be “CENTRIO – Home of Fashion!” A lifestyle mall indeed.

A perspective of the mall and hotel is also shown in the tarp showing the multi-storey hotel on top of the mall and the glassy facade and a red colored portion of it. Please forgive me for the fruits – anyway, it’s a hot day so melons are just what we need. You can also notice some palm trees on top of the mall…part of the rooftop landscape maybe.























On updates of the construction, vertical construction is now ongoing in one section fronting Graphics. The tower crane is also being prepared. Lots of excavation at the hotel site is observed. Delivery of concrete piles is also in progress. Steel bars and other construction materials are also onsite already.

Browse over the photos for the updates.















Forget Gemini, it was perhaps a just “working draft” for the mall’s name which is now called CENTRIO.

PROJECT WATCH: XU Magis Student Complex update
Posted on February 10, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Four months after its groundbreaking, the Magis Student Complex at Xavier University is now steadily rising.

As seen in the pictures below, the main structural columns are almost complete up to the second level. The workers are now completing some tasks on perhaps the roof deck.











As shown in the pictures, except maybe for some incidental noise, the school acitivities are not hampered by the construction as the work area is properly isolated with temporary walls.















For familiarity, the XU Magis Student Complex is located at the old canteen site. The project is set to be completed in May 2011 or in 3 months time.

NGCP Mindanao Control Center now rising
Posted on February 9, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Construction of the Mindanao Control Center of the National Grid Corporation of the Phils. (NGCP) is now in progress in Carmen, Cagayan de Oro City.

More specifically, the 4-storey edifice is situated in the existing NGCP District Office in Carmen just beside GSIS.
This will become the main control center overseeing the over-all operations of the Mindanao electric grid. The main control center is currently in Iligan City and will be relocated to this new building once it is finished.

This building is said to be equipped with advanced technologies on monitoring and control equipment designed to have efficient operations on the whole of the Mindanao electric grid.

As shown below, work is fast and is now going to the second floor with long steel bars extending up 3 storeys high. Again, the project is in dire need (URGENT!) of carpenters/steel men in a statement beside the perspective. I’ve mentioned in previous posts that carpenters in the city have become hard to find because they have found work in numerous construction projects in the city. The contractor is Enrogel Construction Corp. Among Enrogel’s notable projects include the Cagayan de Oro Medical Center, Capitol University Expansion Building, the Main Gate of The Courtyards, and the Clubhouse of Robinson’s Fresno Parkview being the recent.











With Henry Sy now the major owner of NGCP, funds for building construction wouldn’t be a problem.

Groundbreaking set for 4 new MUST state-of-the-art buildings
Posted on February 3, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Dr. Ricardo E. Rotoras, president of Mindanao University of Science and Technology is set to lead another set of groundbreaking ceremonies for four (4) more state-of-the-art buildings to be constructed inside the campus along CM Recto Avenue. These are the new University Gym, Student Center, University Dormitory, and Engineering and Architecture Complex. It will be done with the inauguration of the now completed Science Complex on February 8, 2011 at the start of the MUST Days 2011.

Last year, the groundbreaking for the Science Complex was held coinciding with the inauguration of two new buildings: the new Administration Building and the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Building shown above. PHOTO: The newly constructed buildings (L-R): Science Complex, Information and Communication Technology Building and New Administration Building shall have four more this year with the upcoming groundbreaking ceremony during the 2011 MUST Days celebration.

To refresh you, I posted the new MUST Complex Masterplan almost a year ago shown below.



The new buildings will be the Student Center (#15) just beside the Science Complex, the Dormitory (#20) situated at the back of the campus, the new University Gym (#3) which was destroyed by fire last year and I presume will be located at the same site, and the Engineering/Architecture Complex (#4) located to the right of the Gym.

With all these constructions, all old buildings inside the campus will eventually be replaced with new ones and maybe and I’m pretty sure in the long run, the flooding problem of MUST will be solved.

Priority for P1.2 billion Coastal Superhighway pushed
Posted on May 24, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




The completion of the more than P1.2 billion “coastal super highway” would be given priority among congressional projects in Cagayan de Oro City this year in order to decongest traffic in the city’s downtown district.

Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, (2nd District, Cagayan de Oro City), said that reclamation of the coastal lines in Lapasan has gained headway and some 2-kilometer has already been reclaimed since the project’s phase 1 started early this year.

He said the phase 1 of the coastal highways starts at the Macabalan Port Area to settle at Gusa in the city’s east coast.
















all photos by DKD

The Department of Public Works and Highway has released some P600 million to initially start the super coastal highways that would traverse through Cagayan de Oro City’s north-east coast barangays Macabalan, Lapasan, Gusa, Agusan and Puerto.

“It is a four-lane highway that would primarily be used for prime mover trucks, 24-footer cargo trucks and other trucking facilities that would certainly decongest traffic in downtown Cagayan de Oro,” Rodriguez, re-elected to the 15th Congress this year, said.

But it would be up to the City Council of Cagayan de Oro to legislate an ordinance requiring all trucks and prime mover equipment to pass through the super highway route instead of passing through the city’s congested downtown areas.

He said the coastal highway will connect the newly completed P360-million bridged that connects Barangay Puntod and Kauswagan.

The second phase of the coastal highways would start from Gusa to Puerto, or roughly a total length of 10-kilometer, Rodriguez added.

According to Rodriguez, demolition of shanties and houses along the shorelines would be minimal since highway engineers are seeing to it that these houses shall be spared from demolition.

“At any rate, owners of shanties and houses that would inevitably be demolished to give way to the construction of the coastal highways will be justly compensated,” Rodriguez added.

When completed, the coastal super highway would perk up economic activity in this port capital city of Cagayan de Oro City.

The “super coastal highways” would also become one of the city’s major coastal attraction likened to Cebu City’s south road project which ran across Barangays Bato, Pasil, Alaska, Mambaling, Pardo and toward Talisay City.

PROJECT WATCH: CDO Coastal Superhighway updates
Posted on March 31, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




After the groundbreaking held last November 2009, the Coastal Superhighway Project has showed significant progress. As of March 2010, a significant portion of coastal waters in Lapasan have already been reclaimed. The 1.4 Billion project of Congressman Rufus Rodriguez is designed to connect to the Cagayan de Oro 3rd Bridge Project (Puntod-Kauswagan).

Photos below show dumptrucks loaded with boulders in the farther side of seaside Lapasan. Construction of rock armor fencing is a vital part of reclamation. The huge rocks or boulders will first be dumped along the boundary so that minimal filling materials will be carried away by sea currents. The four(4)-lane highway will reclaim a significant portion of coastal areas along the Lapasan-Gusa area. Reclamation began from the south end of Cagayan de Oro Port.























This project will ever change Cagayan de Oro’s coastal landscape…perhaps similar to Roxas Boulevard (wishful thinking)?

PROJECT WATCH: CDO Coastal Superhighway as of September 2010
Posted on September 8, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Latest pictures of the Cagayan de Oro eastern coastal superhighway project shows significant progress since the previous update last May 2010.

As seen in the photos, construction of the seawall and drainage facilities are still ongoing. Dump trucks loaded with filling materials are observed transporting eastward or towards Gusa seaside area for further reclamation. Initially, they’re constructing the breakwater with rocks then filling it with soil.











































all photos by DKD of SSC

This 4-lane highway is planned to be extended to Bugo but this phase is up to Gusa only. Further, there are resorts in Cugman (Cha-li), and ports in Tablon (Gothong, General Milling Corp., Cagayan Corn Products Corp., Cagayan de Oro Oil Mill Corp.) and Bugo (Del Monte) which could be a hindrance to the project.

PROJECT WATCH: CDO International Trade & Convention Center to be completed soon
Posted on January 24, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




The 7,700-seat capacity Cagayan de Oro International Trade and Convention Center located at Taguanao, Indahag is slated for completion soon and due to be opened in 2012.

This after Cagayan de Oro City Second District Concgressman Rufus Rodriguez secured the release of additional P200 million for this year 2011. Photo below shows Cong. Rodriguez and some local officials posing with the scale model of the Convention Center.



The P758-million convention center is due for completion in 2012. DPWH Regional Director Norma Gironella said they will prioritize the function rooms, water and electric systems of the convention with available funding of P385 million as well as the additional P200 million.

The convention center building, which will accommodate at least 7,700 people, will be an ideal place for international, national and trade exhibits, seminar and conventions. It will be operated and managed by the Philippine Tourism Authority.

Photo below shows the current interior of the building.



Based on the schedule, the facility would be usable by December this year.

Accordingly, the plan is to have a Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) game as an inauguration activity. The convention center would be operated by the Department of Tourism (DOT) but Rodriguez said he would insist that barangay officials of Indahag and Macasandig should be given a hand in managing its day-to-day operations.

Meanwhile, Singson ordered DPWH here to start the expropriation proceeding for properties that would be used in the widening of the road leading to the convention center in Taguanao.

Singson told Gironella that the road leading to the convention center should be at least be six lanes wide. Rodriguez welcomed Singson’s move, saying that this plan would ease traffic in the area once the convention center becomes operational.

PROJECT WATCH: Mallberry Suites Expansion nears completion
Posted on March 8, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com



The Mallberry Suites Expansion Project is now on its final stages of construction. The tower crane, a fixture last year during its construction has been removed.


Based on photos below, the extension (Building B) I think is ready for occupancy as airconditioning units are already installed. Work is now focused on the 10th floor of center building (Building C) aside from painting of the exteriors.

The following photos were taken from different points, namely: Gaisano Mall Food Court, and along Osmeña Street.


































PROJECT WATCH: Mallberry Suites Expansion almost done
Posted on October 13, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Mallberry Suites expansion project is now on the homestretch of opening more rooms in the new buildings. Arguably the most favorite downtown hotel in the city, Mallberry is always fully-booked which compelled the owners to expand.

As seen in the photos, work is now focused on the exterior of the 7-storey building closest to Osmeña St. The 10-storeycenter building is also done perhaps with interior finishings left to complete.

The hotel’s location makes it ideal for business travellers and tourists alike due to its proximity to Limketkai Mall and other convention venues. Just browse over the pictures for the latest updates.

PROJECT WATCH: City Legislative/Admin Bldg. latest updates
Posted on August 12, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Work on the new City Legislative and Administration Building has now shifted to the facade and its interiors. As clearly shown above, the main entrance stairs are very much obvious at the lower right.

The building is still very much bare with lots of options on what to do with the exteriors. Will they place metal claddings? glass? Perhaps, construction suppliers may still have a say…or has City Hall already decided on it?

































Based on the progress of construction, I see some partial relocation of some departments of city hall before the year ends. I think the discussion is more on the proper location of the different departments/sections of city hall which need to be relocated due to congestion and space limitations.





PROJECT WATCH: City Legislative/Admin Bldg. as of Nov. 26
Posted on November 26, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Latest update of the City Legislative and Administration Building revealed aluminum claddings are now installed on the building’s exterior. This is a trend in building construction nowadays as a viable and cheaper alternative to paint.

As seen in the pictures, workers are seen doing various activities in the work area. The central part (just above the City Tourism Office) is more likely a bridge or hallway with a view of the city hall grounds and the river, if I’m not mistaken. I think they will install glass walls on this part.

Meanwhile, ramps and main entrances are now visible on the section near Burgos Street. More pictures below. Just click each image for larger view.

PROGRESS WATCH: New Agora Complex latest updates
Posted on February 8, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Quick updates on the New Agora Complex Project showed steel structures for the Market already in place. Concreting of main columns is underway.

A cloudless day with scorching solar heat = rush photos. Had to drive around the complex. Above photo and below show the project as seen from southeast corner.



Below is the project as viewed from northeast corner.



Picture below shows the new complex as seen from northwest. Under construction at right I believe forms part of the new bus terminal or perhaps an entrance to the new market.



Maybe you can notice the very high ceiling or roof frames of the supposed to be just a 2-storey edifice. There are rumors that SM is putting up a Save More branch inside.

The view from Dunkin Donuts outlet. Had to get off the car since trucks and buses are blocking the view.



Below is the New Agora Complex as viewed from southwest corner. On the left (not seen on photo) is another building being constructed within the complex. Perhaps, the police station or terminal office.



From the looks of it, I’d say this will be inaugurated come July or August 2010.




PROJECT WATCH: Agora Complex is now Market City
Posted on March 13, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




The New Agora Complex being developed by Mr. Hong See is now called Market City based on the newly installed tarpaulin onsite. Its official name is Market City and Eastbound Bus Terminal.

Roof frames for the bus terminal building can now be seen in the pictures below.







Below is the new tarp. Funny that the design already has Mang Inasal, Jollibee and Greenwich — sure locators? With these fastfood stores, Market City may just be a Mall afterall.







More photo updates below.





Heavy traffic in the vicinity of Market City.

















PROJECT WATCH: Market City as of August 29, 2010
Posted on August 31, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Development of Market City is now on the exterior painting stage. However, much work still to be done on the interiors. The eastern part of the building (fronting La Paz) is where the SM SaveMore will be located. Some fastfood chains will be established near the bus terminal area. Stalls for the old locators will be in the middle part.

Based on the info, the contractor is targeting project completion by the fourth quarter of this year. More photos below.





































PROJECT WATCH: SaveMore Agora to open October 18
Posted on October 13, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




SM Group’s SaveMore Agora Branch will open on October 18. This is seen on the tarpaulin installed on all sides of the New Agora Complex now called Market City, which is nearing completion. This is the first SaveMore in Mindanao, SM’s stand alone supermarket.

An indication of the opening is the dismantling of the temporary stalls surrounding the eastern wing of Market City where SaveMore will be located as shown below. Delivery vans are also transferring all dry goods and other products.



















The other portions of Market City is still under construction but SM, the largest locator in Market City is bent on opening next week.

PROJECT WATCH: Golden Mile updates
Posted on April 14, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




The Golden Mile’s north extension has already progressed. After reclamation, piles are now seen at the site. A pile driver and a back hoe were seen onsite. This connects to the portion beside the ongoing expansion of City Hall. Reclamation has now reached right at the back of the proposed amphitheater or just fronting the lot where the proposed 30-storey City Center will be built.













One thing which rouses curiousity is the seemingly extension of reclamation towards the center of the river shown below.





Below is a clearer picture taken during low tide the day before.



My assumption is that it will be the base of the proposed walkbridge as seen in the perspective below.





It could also be the fountain, but based on its distance, it should be the walk bridge….



Meanwhile, DPWH has started initial pile driving works at the Paseo del Rio area near Kagay-an Bridge as part of its river protection project which is a major component of the bridge. Initial clearing of the river abutments was conducted just recently as clearly shown in the next photos. This area is located south of City Hall and will connect to the portion just beside the church and then finally the Golden Mile. Hopefully, this will be fast-tracked to pave the way for the Paseo del Rio project of the Pelaez Group located right behind the bridge.









The Convention Center in the background is so near yet so far…actually.













PROJECT WATCH: Golden Mile latest updates
Posted on August 12, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




The Golden Mile project is still on-going. As seen in the pictures, the concrete river protection from the back of the city hall up to the area just behind the Chavez lot next to the amphitheater has been completed.

However, major earthfilling works are still needed shown below.



There are also changes perhaps as the north extension wall overlaps with the completed one.



This opening below is where trucks get some of their aggregates. Also, based on the perspective, this is right across the proposed river fountain.



Shown below, the river fountain is right next to the city hall straight down from Toribio Chavez Street.



The Golden Mile is not just a river tourism project but also an infrastructure development as measure against erosion and flooding.







Some of the unused concrete piles….







Hopefully, this Golden Mile project will be completed soon.

PROJECT WATCH: Primavera Residences updates
Posted on May 5, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com






Construction of the 10-storey Primavera Residences at Pueblo de Oro has began with preliminary site clearing of the area undertaken last week.

The subject property located at the back of Phoenix Fuel Refilling Station has already been fenced. Some heavy equipment were seen onsite but work was minimal because it was a Sunday. I expect construction work to pick up in the next few days. Primavera Residences will be the latest vertical condominium development in uptown Cagayan de Oro, the first being Korescoville 1 & 2. The Courtyards also at Pueblo is a horizontal type condo development.

Primavera will be the first green building in Mindanao by the ITPI (Italpinas “Euroasian Design & Eco-Development Corporation”) and ICCP (Investment and Capital Corporation of the Philippines. Below is the project billboard as seen from Masterson Avenue. I guess a portion of the Concentrix Building will be obstructed from view by the project.





Below is the project site as seen from Gran Via.











PROJECT WATCH: Primavera Residences latest update
Posted on January 11, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




We can finally see some steel bars protruding from the enclosed area of Primavera Residences. The bars are now 15-20 feet tall and quite a progress on the first green building in Mindanao.

For several months, work was concentrated on the building’s foundations. Now we can see that vertical construction is now underway. Hope to see some significant progress ahead. As of now, it is overshadowed by the speedy construction of Granvia Square right behind it.







The one under construction is the first of two 10-storey towers. Accordingly, construction of the second tower will commence once 60% of the units in the first tower are sold.

PROJECT WATCH: Johndorf Venture’s Granvia Residences now rising at Pueblo
Posted on October 11, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Johndorf Ventures Corporation, a known real estate developer in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan is now venturing into the condominium business. Its first condotel project under its development is named as Granvia Square, which means Great Way. It is going to be a 6-storey building with 70 units.

As of now, construction has began right at the Pueblo Business Park beside Concentrix. The project will soon have a grand launching to be participated by all the real estate’s personalities and perhaps includes the unveiling of the condotel’s perspective.

As seen below, there are initial columns now rising at the site… seems to be too small for a 6-storey building? Maybe we’ll get some updated news soon on this project.



Cagayan de Oro’s uptown is slowly getting the needed development with lots of condominium projects…. we’ll definitely wait for the so-called launching of this project.

PROJECT WATCH: Granvia Square now on 4th floor
Posted on January 11, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Construction of Granvia Square Condotel at Pueblo de Oro is now on high gear as work is now on the fourth floor just barely a month after my last update in December 2010 which shows they were just starting work on the 2nd level.

As seen in the following photos, work is fast and based on the progress, they could top off the building in February 2011. The condotel’s developer, Johndorf Ventures Corp., must be rushing the building so it can start the project launch. Also, they might be contemplating that construction of Primavera Residences located right in front is still in low gear that it might be better to finish the building first for the public to see. Once the 10-storey Primavera is completed, Granvia will be blocked from view along Masterson Avenue.



You can also see a huge space at the back below which could be ideal for a second building.





Below is a shot from Masterson Avenue showing both Granvia and Primavera.



Browse over more photos below.





















Cagayan de Oro’s uptown is slowly getting the needed development with lots of condominium projects…. we’ll definitely wait for the so-called launching of this project.

Here’s a clearer rendering of the under construction condo at Pueblo and its officially named Granvia Residences. As shown, it will have 4 storeys with 69 residential studio units and 4 commercial units at the ground floor. Accordingly, official project launch will coincide with the Chinese New Year, February 3, 2011. So watch for it…!

Gaisano Mall Bulua





PROJECT WATCH: Gaisano Bulua
Posted on May 6, 2010 by damarre

If you’re going west from the city, you’ll notice this huge area on the left just passing Bulua proper with many heavy equipment doing all sorts of construction work. This project is said to be that of the proposed Gaisano Bulua. There is no official press release yet but city officials have announced in some radio and tv interviews about this project a month ago. The area is just fronting De Oro Pacific Home Plus, where you can see the movie billboards of what is showing in Gaisano Cinemas.

I don’t see any rendering or perspective of the project onsite but rumors state that this building will have three floors. Construction started a couple of weeks ago but work was concentrated on the other end of the property, unnoticeable from passing motorists along the highway. Not until last week that the earthworks have now included the area near the highway and frequency of passage of dump trucks and heavy equipment have increased considerably.

Currently, excavations along the perimeter is being undertaken with other excavations perhaps for the foundations and septic vault. Circular steel columns are also visible in some areas. As seen in one of the photos below, the contractor even has its own crushing plant onsite. This project I think aims to cater to customers from the western part of Cagayan de Oro City and Misamis Oriental. With extensive commercial development in the city proper, this project will alleviate the traffic problem by filtering incoming vehicles whose purpose is to shop. I just hope this development has enough space for parking.





























PROJECT WATCH: Gaisano Bulua updates

Construction of Gaisano Bulua is making significant progress. One can clearly see the 3-storey structure on the left. The building along the main frontage is still being constructed. Still, everyone is guessing what the building would look like because there’s still no perspective displayed onsite.

Based on the construction photos, this would be completed next year, maybe during fiesta time again?

From the photos below, I’m assuming Unipace Corp. (Gaisano) is building several buildings onsite joined by bridges. Still, it’s just my guess. Maybe Gaisano will post the tarpaulin soon.



























PROJECT WATCH: Gaisano Bulua as of November 12

The structural design of the under construction Gaisano Bulua has now taken shape. The commercial undertaking is right across De Oro Pacific Home Plus along busy Bulua Highway.

Without any press release, it’s hard to determine what Mr. Stephen Gaisano has in mind for his latest branch so we’ll just rely on assumption and rumors. As shown below, there’s a large opening on the left side of the building leading to the interior of the compound which I assume to include parking spaces.



You can also try to count the main columns to know the depth of the building from the highway.









Try to compare the usual height of a 2-storey building beside it… Gaisano has a high ceiling.



If I’m not mistaken, I’m assuming this is the irregular shape of the Bulua property. The pictures seen above and below show the main expanse of the small frontage along the highway shown on the map (CLICK MAP TO ENLARGE).



More photos below.

Passed by Gaisano Bulua last week and took a few photos. It’s now clear this will be a three-storey commercial building. The small frontage hides what’s inside of the building but you can clearly see the areas near the front.

The main entrance near the left side is open with no barricades and is very tempting to go inside to take some shots. From the looks of it, the building seems to be “L-shaped”. Nevertheless, I was hoping I can get inside some other time as I was in a hurry.





I just hope Gaisano will finally put some fine architecture on this building when finished.

With the above updates, I’m expecting an opening by middle of 2011….

Gaisano Cugman





PROJECT WATCH: Another Gaisano project in Cugman
Posted on January 8, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Mr. Stephen Gaisano hasn’t even completed its building project along Julio Pacana Street and I saw this long stretch of property in Cugman being fenced with G.I. sheets. Accordingly, Mr. Gaisano has bought the property from the Tamparong family and is reportedly developing a commercial arcade in the said lot.

Some workers at the site said they heard it will be a warehouse but based on the last set of photos below, the width is shorter that the length of 18-wheeler trucks known to transport goods for Gaisano’s stores. Some also said it will be an arcade which I’m more inclined to believe.

In my opinion, if it is indeed an arcade it would be similar to that of Kimwa Arcade where a long line of commercial stalls are up for rent for office or business establishment where the main establishment is Leo’s Bar.



As seen in the following pictures, the facade is nearly 200 meters long. Gaisano is also rumored to be negotiating with the adjacent lot being occupied by entrepreneurs selling seedlings for nursery or planting. Said is also owned by Tamparong family…..again.









As seen below, workers have started the layout and excavation of the foundations of the proposed building.







But whether it is an arcade or a warehouse, it is still good news for Cagayan de Oro since this will provide opportunities for those without work.





PROJECT WATCH: Gaisano Cugman update

Construction of Businessman Stephen Gaisano’s building in Cugman is still ongoing. Latest updates revealed workers are now working on the second level of the 2-storey commercial building project.

As seen in the following photos, the lengthy structure of the project resembles an arcade or strip-type commercial development. Notably, the area behind this building is still very wide good for expansion areas perhaps more warehouse for Gaisano. Note that in the main photo above, you can see the new concrete fence built by Gaisano in the background showing that the boundary of the property extends to the hill behind it.

If this is indeed an arcade similar to Rosario Strip, then this is very ideal for those who want to avoid traffic in Lapasan and city proper. This site is good for restaurants, coffee shops, convenience stores and restobars. But still, only Mr. Gaisano knows what this project is.



























RANDOM SHOTS: Gaisano Cugman – view from the hills
Posted on February 5, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





I got these vantage point shots of Gaisano’s commercial undertaking in Cugman via email from blog contributor @edmar… From the pictures, quite a large area at the back of the commercial arcade at the frontage.

The development will have a central road from the main gate maybe similar to Kimwa Compound in Baloy. Still we don’t know what specific development Gaisano has in mind inside the property – commercial buildings or just simple warehouses? We’re pretty sure the main frontage will house commercial stalls for rent. But as shown, there are piles on the ground and one building is under construction shown below.



If I can make a suggestion, I would love to have a Rosario Strip like development inside…. a long line of architecturally designed commercial arcade of shops, diners, bars, coffee shops – all inside the property and is very safe – similar to Parkmall in Mandaue City shown below. For one, it will create another growth center and decongest the city proper including the Limketkai Area.

But I guess Gaisano has other things in mind…. and not what I wished for a Parkmall-type development.

Browse over the photos.






























But who knows, there might be some changes in the plans (wishful thinking)…..Thanks to @edmar again for the photos.
