PROJECT WATCH: 18-storey Riviera Hotel rising steadily
by damarre


The Riviera Hotel, Paseo del Rio’s hotel component in the mixed-use development project of the Pelaez Group is rising steadily.

The two lower floors of the 18-storey building was affected by the Sendong flood but latest updates revealed no traces of the tragedy last December 2011. As shown in the photos, workers are now working on the 3rd and 4th floors with the southern end of the building rising faster. Work resumed a few weeks after the clearing operation and at the rate of construction, topping off is estimated to be in 6 or 7 months or safe to say within the year.

PROJECT WATCH: Laguindingan Airport closer look as of February 22, 2012
by damarre



Here are latest and more closer photos of Laguindingan Airport taken February 22, 2012.

Based on the pictures, landscaping is still ongoing. There is still some concreting activities near the runway, parking area is now almost done including the rotunda, and the arrival and departure sections are now very clear. You can clearly observe from the main pic above on that this airport has a different design from recent new airports such as Bacolod-Silay. You can probably imagine when it’s already operating in due time. More photos below.

Centrio: Deep in the heart of Cagayan de Oro
By Ching M. Alano (The Philippine Star) Updated March 17, 2012 12:00 AM Comments (0)





MANILA, Philippines - Deep in the heart of Mindanao lies Cagayan de Oro, a first-class growing metropolis that has earned the sobriquet the city of golden friendship. For here, the people are ever ready to welcome visitors into their homes, be it ever so humble, and into their hearts. The home of warm and hospitable people, CDO is also home to awe-inspiring historical sites and natural wonders designed for pulse-racing adventures for adrenaline junkies like white water rafting, kayaking, rappelling, and zip lining.

And now, bound to create even more rip-roaring waves of excitement is Centrio, a 3.7-hectare mixed-use development project that Ayala Land is bringing into CDO. Call it the newest lifestyle destination right smack in the city’s central business district.

“At Centrio, we’re putting in the very best that Ayala Malls has to offer,” says Antonino Aquino, Ayala Land president and chief executive officer. “I’ll daresay that this is the first city where we’re probably doing things in a big way. Here, we jumpstarted it in one big bang, which probably took us years to do in Makati, while retaining the same elements that we have succeeded in doing in all our developments.”



Towering attraction: Centrio Tower by Avida, the first high-rise tower in the area, will elevate living standards in Cagayan de Oro.

Aquino goes on to explain, “In every regional capital we get into, our intention is to duplicate what we did in Makati that makes it the country’s central business district. In all our developments, we take into account four major items — retail, residential, high-rise condos, and offices. Because everywhere Ayala goes, it’s always large-scale, mixed-use development; it’s never stand-alone.”

Proving Ayala Land’s rock-solid commitment to the environment, Aquino relates, “At Centrio, we preserved two large acacia trees, about 60 years old, that are in the middle of the development. While other developers would have cut them down or relocated them, we built around the trees and made them the centerpiece of the development like what we did in Greenbelt, The Terraces in Ayala Center Cebu or the rainforests in Abreeza Mall, Davao. When you preserve nature, you create a very nice atmosphere and it enhances the value of the area.”

Himself visibly excited about this brewing development in the melting pot of Mindanao, Aquino enthuses, “It’s a great opportunity to be at the very center of everything in CDO. As in any Ayala development, we’re able to contribute in terms of helping boost domestic economy and improving lives.”

Of course, Ayala Land is not new in CDO. “But we’re now coming in in a bigger way to enhance consumer, tourist, and residential dweller experience,” asserts Bobby Dy, Ayala Land, Inc. executive vice president. “CDO is really a major economic trade area in northern Mindanao and it is just right for the first integrated mixed-use development. The idea is to transform the landscape and elevate the shopping, dining experience for tourists and business people. To provide a lifestyle where everything is within reach — the mall and all the conveniences that come with living in a condo development like security, not having to worry about property management, backup power, etc. And the strength of this mall/hotel/residential development makes it an attractive place for offices, whether corporate or BPOs, to locate in this area.”



TGreen mall: Above is an artist’s perspective of the Centrio Mall that’s being built around two existing trees, solid proof of Ayala Land’s stand on environmental preservation. Centrio’s retail mix brings together new concepts and homegrown CDO brands. On top of the mall is the eight-story Kukun Cagayan de Oro Hotel, allowing guests to easily access more retail and dining options.

CDO seems like the perfect choice for Ayala Land’s Centrio, the first mall in CDO to bring together popular international and local brands and homegrown, proudly Cagayanon, concepts. And now, Cagayanons have a lot more reasons to shop, dine, or simply go malling as Centrio Malls opens its doors by the fourth quarter of this year.

“At Centrio, we will offer the best in shopping and dining that Ayala Malls has always been known for, and at the same time, we always make sure that we bring in the homegrown concepts,” says Rowena Tomeldan, Ayala Land, Inc. head of operations and support services for the commercial business group. “We have an area that gives all the homegrown concepts a chance to be part of this large development. At the same time, all the offerings we have in our Metro Manila malls will also be there in CDO, like the VIPinoy lounges, family lounges, plus the marketing events, the exceptional customer service. But if there are local tourists from Manila going to Centrio, it will not feel like an Ayala mall in Manila because it will have the homegrown and VisMin concepts that will offer a unique shopping experience.”



Pool of fun: Get into the swim of things at Centrio Tower’s amenity area at the 3rd floor that features an adult and kiddie swimming pool.

It’s a mall after the Cagayanons’ own hearts. “We talked to the Cagayanons and asked them for their wish list,” Tomeldan explains how Centrio came up with its tenant mix. “So we invited the brands that they wanted. Of course, there are our mall staples like National Book Store, Bench, and Jollibee. And we’re brining in affordable foreign brands as well as new brands that are affordable, both Manila-based and Cagayan-based. It’s a good mix of fashion, shopping, and dining components. Then we’ll also have a nursing room for moms and a waiting room for fathers. Plus we have the personal shopper to guide shoppers.”

And stop, look, and listen: Sitting right on top of Centrio is the 150-room Kukun Hotel, the first line of urban lifestyle hotels in the country that will cater to business and leisure travelers.

“It’s going to be a very nice concept — a hotel located on top of a retail development; people can literally jump from the swimming pool to shopping,” Aquino says with a laugh.

“It’s time to take your shoes off, sit on the bed, and say, ‘What a long day it’s been! Finally, I’m home,’” gushes Andrea Mastellone, Kukun Hotels general manager. “It’s a new concept that’s expected to serve a larger segment of travelers, like nature travelers and those who require a higher level of accommodations as well as those going to Camiguin as CDO is a jump-off point for trips to the northern coast of Mindanao.”

Mastellone adds, “Kukun will give a home to true Filipino hospitality. Here, we’ve introduced the three-in-one concept —lobby, lounge, restaurant clumped together in one area, the nerve center where things happen.”



Dream team: Avida Land Corp. president Christopher Maglanoc, Ayala Land, Inc. executive vice president Bobby Dy, Ayala Land, Inc. head of operations & support services for the commercial business group Rowena Tomeldan, Ayala Land, Inc. president and CEO Antonino Aquino, Ayala Land VISMIN group head Emilio Tumbocon, and Kukun Hotels general manager Andrea Mastellone
Redefining the standards of hospitality in this city where people wear a warm smile, Kukun will also generate jobs for local residents. Now, that’s another reason for Cagayanons to smile.

“With the airport being developed and world-class accommodations for businessmen, CDO will be conducive for business and will attract investments,” observes Emilio Tumbocon, Ayala Land VISMIN group head.

And that’s not all, folks. For right across Centrio Mall is the Centrio Tower by Avida. “We’re excited to come into CDO with the first high-rise condo,” says Christopher Maglanoc, president of Avida Land Corp. “We were pleasantly surprised that of our 520 units, we’ve sold out 80 percent since our launch in November last year. Our reading of the market was proven right: that Cagayanons are ready for this concept. With its very good location (near a mall), it’s a good value-for-money proposition.”

Expected to elevate the living standards in CDO, the 23-story Centrio Tower by Avida boasts free-flowing air and sunlight, limited number of rooms per floor for privacy and exclusivity, modern-day conveniences, emergency power in common areas, and security. Its studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units are suitable for young couples, small families, and professionals.

Certainly, with Centrio, this city of golden friendship can only sparkle like spanking-new gold.
