New ER/OR Complex at Xavier Maria Reyna University Hospital updates
Posted on January 4, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Two months after groundbreaking, construction of the new ER/OR Complex of Xavier Maria Reyna University Hospital (XMRUH) is now in full swing.

One of the landmark healthcare facilities in Cagayan de Oro, XMRUH, formerly Maria Reyna Hospital, is a partnership between the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro, the Sisters of St Paul de Chartres and Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan. It will be the base hospital of Xavier’s School of Medicine, and College of Nursing.

Please see photo updates below.









Being the regional capital, the city’s medical facilities are being upgraded such that patients need not go to Cebu or Manila for better healthcare.

Jose Ch. Alvarez Technology Complex to rise at Xavier University Manresa Campus
Posted on June 28, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Asian Carmakers Corp., the official distributor of BMW vehicles in Philippines, is hoping to arm more Filipinos with technical and industrial skills through an additional training facility to be established in Xavier University in Cagayan de Oro City.

The company has contributed P72.3 million for the construction of the Jose Ch. Alvarez (JCA) Technology Complex reportedly inside the Manresa campus. The university’s Center for Industrial Technology (CIT) will be transferred to the said facility which is expected to be completed next year.

Students enrolled in the programs to be offered at the JCA Technology Complex will have the option to train in BMW dealerships. They also have a chance to be absorbed by the company.

“I personally believe in the value of having good education and I recognize the talent of the Filipino youth and their need for progressive educational institutions,” Asian Carmakers chairman Jose Ch. Alvarez said.

The JCA Technology Complex will offer automotive technology as one of its courses and students enrolled in this program have the option to undergo training at different BMW dealerships and eventually get absorbed into the company

XU and Asian Carmakers Corp. MOA Signing

cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Xavier University, represented by Fr. Jose Ramon T. Villarin, SJ, President and Asian Carmakers Corporation, the official distributor of BMW cars in the Philippines, represented by Mr. Jose Ch. Alvarez, Chairman signed a Memorandum of Agreement recently at Shangri-la Hotel, Makati City last June 17, 2010, for the donation of P72.3 million construction of two new buildings in Manresa Campus for the Center for Industrial Technology (CIT). The new complex will be named the Jose Ch. Alvarez Technology Complex.

The buildings will be designed for the 21st century. With a small environmental footprint, these will have state-of-the-art rainwater, wind, and solar catchment systems for efficient energy and water use. The buildings themselves will be a teaching tool and icon for green architecture.

The CIT, under the leadership of Engr. Erwin Li, Director, is being re-engineered as a polytechnic school which will be versatile enough to meet the technical skill shortages on demand. The Center aims to generate a new breed of highly-skilled world-class technicians who demonstrate leadership and generous service, in consonance with the Xavier way of forming persons of competence, conscience, and commitment.



With CIT now engaged in forming future BMW and other auto mechanics, its reach will no longer be simply local. With BMW setting up shop here in Northern Mindanao, we are hopefully sending a strong signal to the world that Mindanao is ready for business, and that there is much wealth here to be unlocked and sustainably distributed all over.

Some specific details on the proposed Jose Ch. Alvarez Technology Complex which will rise next year at Manresa Campus of Xavier University.

As shown below, the location of the complex is right across Pueblo IT Park (Phoenix Petroleum) and Masterson Mile.



In earlier press release, the two buildings will be designed for the 21st century. With a small environmental footprint, these will have state-of-the-art rainwater, wind, and solar catchment systems for efficient energy and water use. The buildings themselves will be a teaching tool and icon for green architecture.





The P72.3 million facility is expected to be completed in 2011. Xavier University, represented by then President Fr. Jose Ramon T. Villarin, SJ, and Asian Carmakers Corporation, the official distributor of BMW cars in the Philippines, represented by Mr. Jose Ch. Alvarez, Chairman formally signed a Memorandum of Agreement last June 17, 2010 at Shangri-la Hotel, Makati City for the donation of the P72.3 million to fund the construction.





JCA Technology Complex ground breaking set October 13

The ceremonial ground breaking and laying of the time capsule for the Jose Ch. Alvarez Technology Complex, the new home of Xavier University’s Center for Industrial Technology (XU-CIT) is set on October 13, 2010 at the Manresa Campus along Masterson Avenue in uptown Cagayan de Oro.

The event will also feature the unveiling of the billboard showing the perspective of the project. University officials led by Fr. Jose Ramon Villarin, SJ, Asian Carmakers Corp. Chairman Jose Ch. Alvarez and BMW Asia Managing Director JOhannes Scibert are expected to grace the event.



The facility, which is scheduled for completion in 2011, aims to develop the skills of deserving Filipino students and give them an opportunity to eventually become part of a competent labor force both here and abroad.



Moreover, the JCA Technology Complex will have Automotive Technology as part of its curriculum. This likewise gives students the option to undergo further training at any of the BMW dealerships and eventually get absorbed into the company.

Xavier University’s Center for Industrial Technologies currently offers four vocational courses with a population of 600 students. This number is expected to increase significantly with the additional P72.3 million support for the construction of two new buildings.

PROJECT WATCH: XU Magis Student Complex and SEP Building
Posted on September 9, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Officials of Xavier University led by President Fr. Jose Ramon “Jett” Villarin, SJ recently held the groundbreaking ceremony for the new Magis Student Complex located at the old canteen site inside their main campus along Corrales Avenue, Cagayan de Oro City.

The 2-storey building with a multi-purpose rooftop is expected to be completed in May 2011.



Another building set to rise at the main campus is the Pryce Center for Entrepreneurship (PCE) or the Student Entrepreneurship Program (SEP) Building shown below. (Just asking if the Pryce name is final….???)



The building will be located fronting Corrales Avenue between the agriculture and science center buildings. This will be a 2-storey (ground floor and mezzanine) structure accessible to the public. Both public at large and students can come in the front access doors to view and/or purchase products from SEP. A new student access gate is also being proposed to be set up at the rear for student entry to the main campus.





Based on the above plans, the ground floor will have 6 leasable modules (5 sq. meters) for dry good selling of students, 3 leasable “island” modules (4 sq. meters, collapsible type) for temporary or short-term selling or product launchings; 2 Larger spaces (with window display) at the front which serve as prime location – 1 will house the College of Agriculture products that they currently sell at the Tabuan – SC Dry pond (with washing area) - 1 can accommodate SEP-operated venture like the ornamental fish venture or a social enterprise. The second floor will house the business center and other meeting rooms.

I don’t know if the perspective shown will be the final design but one thing’s certain, it surely change the building landscape of Xavier University especially that this will be erected fronting Corrales Avenue.

PROJECT WATCH: Other construction updates 15
Posted on June 7, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





New construction updates in Cagayan de Oro City include this 4-storey mixed use building along 8th Street in Barangay Nazareth just across the Office of Muslim Affairs. I didn’t notice this until I passed by the area this noon. Construction must have began sometime late last year as the building is nearing completion.

The ground floor is assumed to be used for commercial spaces. The upper floors could be used for lodging. The blue glass panels on the building’s facade also add to its unique architecture.







Also in Nazareth, below is the large church of the CDO First Assembly of God being constructed at the corner of 11th-29th streets. CDO First Assembly of God Church first started as a “house church” of new converts. The congregation grew over time spiritually and numerically under the care of local leaders. Sometime in the late 60′s a missionary came from the Assemblies of God, U.S.A., Rev. Edna Alhberg who assisted the local pastor in all aspects of the ministry and programs of the church. The new building (4-storeys high) is a true manifestation of the congregation’s growth in the city.











Below is another small commercial development along Vamenta Boulevard in Carmen. Interestingly, I just don’t know if the tarp seen below is the same project seen in the background (6-storeys).











Below is another new development near the intersection of Vamenta Blvd., Calamansi Drive and Pelaez Blvd. near SSS Building in Carmen.





Looks like another bakeshop will open tomorrow. Lots of business will be inaugurated tomorrow following Feng Shui’s “lucky 8″.

Below is the former Steve’s Grill along Tiano Bros. just near Vjandep Tiano Branch. The building is undergoing reconstruction. I just don’t know if it will still be Steve’s or some new investor.





I would have posted six (6) more new construction projects in the city but I’d rather reserve them for Update No. 17. Some are really new constructions while others have already began a few months back but will be posted first time here. Below are some clues of their locations:

City proper
Corrales
Osmeña
Agusan
Baloy

[QUOTE=Taegon;72416563]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.

Viva CENTRIO!!!!
MORE PROGRESS CDO & NORMIN!

Chevy returns to CDO – New showroom rising in Kauswagan
Posted on February 9, 2011 by damarre



CHEVROLET, the leading brand produced by General Motors recently held its groundbreaking ceremony for its new building in Cagayan de Oro City along Kauswagan Highway. It also marked the return of the Chevrolet brand of cars into the fast booming market of Cagayan de Oro and in Northern Mindanao.

Chevrolet previously had their own showroom along Velez Street a few years back shown below but was closed after several months of operation.

The groundbreaking event was well attended with officals of Chevrolet Phils. and a few government officials including Lanao del Sur Gov. Mamintal Alonto-Adiong Jr., Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Vicente Emano among others.

More specifically, the showroom will rise right beside Michelin just before reaching Jollibee-NHA if you’re westbound.

The site was once occupied by an auto center shown below which has since relocated.

Accordingly, this time Chevrolet is here to stay and would reach out to other parts of Mindanao. The building will incorporate facilities for the sale of cars, spare parts and a service center for Chevy owners in Mindanao.



The branch manager for Cagayan de Oro is quoted to be pleased with the inquiries he has been receiving and said he sees a bigger market not only in Cagayan de Oro but in other parts of Region 10 and Caraga as well. The target date for the soft launching of the building is July 1, and the showroom will showcase wide variety of vehicles including the iconic Camaro better known as the Bumblebee in the Transformers movie.

PROJECT WATCH: More MUST developments
Posted on February 12, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




The perspectives of the four (4) new buildings which will rise inside Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST) can now be seen at the campus near the newly-inaugurated Science Complex.

Shown above is the P150 million Engineering and Architecture Complex which will be located on the eastern section of the campus.

Below is the 3-storey University Residences which will rise beside the Science Complex. Perhaps this will serve as a guesthouse I think or a dorm?



Below is the new MUST Gym (see separate post).



Next is the Student Center at the north section of the campus.



The groundbreaking was part of the recent activities at MUST for their MUST Days. We foresee full blast construction inside the campus in the next few months.





Behind the billboard is the Science Complex.



More photos below of the completed Science Complex.









With these projects, truly, MUST is becoming one of the most beautiful universities in this part of the country.

Here’s what the Mindanao University of Science and Technology Gymnasium will look like after a major renovation.

The old gym which used to host major sports events in the city was destroyed by fire a few years back. Now, it’s part of the major redevelopment of the university. Kudos to Engr. Ric Rotoras. Looking forward to its re-opening.

PROJECT WATCH: Centrio Mall and Hotel

Here’s a clearer view of CENTRIO, Ayala Land’s mixed use development in Cagayan de Oro City. Another tarp was installed on the other side of the property fronting Gaisano Mall.

The hotel is pretty obvious…. the mall design is still very intriguing.





The perspective is taken from a viewpoint if you’re standing at the corner of Gaisano City.

Thai Me Up expansion done; 3 new function rooms now available
Posted on February 12, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.co




Are you looking for a venue for small meetings, gatherings or even birthdays and other small occasions? Well, Thai Me Up, Cagayan de Oro’s premiere Thai restaurant has just completed its expansion to accommodate three new function rooms. Each of the function rooms can seat 50 persons.

Conveniently located within a 2,000-square meter lot along Capistrano Street, Thai Me Up has just celebrated its first anniversary last October 28, 2010 and has been getting the customers’ nod in terms of its affordable and delicious authentic food…well except maybe for the slow service (an average of 20-30 minutes before your order is served—yawn!). But hey, the food is great.









Thai Me Up restaurant is owned by 33-year-old entrepreneur Jan Michael Uy and his wife Margie. It opened in November 2009 with a seating capacity of 100 but has since expanded to accommodate 200 diners.



A function center for corporate events is built separately from the restaurant’s main dining area. Now, to accommodate the increasing reservations, 3 function rooms are now fully operational. Thai Me Up is also a free Wi-Fi zone which is conducive to tech-savvy yuppies.

Like they said, “Have a great appeTHAIzing experience.”

Construction of P7.8-billion Laguindingan Airport on track
Posted on May 31, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





The construction of the P7.853 billion (approximately $167.09-million) international airport here is already 65 percent completed, the Laguindingan Airport Development Project (LADP) Management Office disclosed Saturday.

The Laguindingan International Airport is set for completion on the last month of next year and will be open to airlines on the first month of 2012.

Engineer Ryan Gico of Laguindingan Airport Development Project Management Office, said requirements for the full operation of airport like an access road was completed last January 2010 while civil works and building construction is already 65 percent complete as of May 14.

“We have already reached, as of May 14, a 65 percent completion rate of the airport’s civil works while land acquisition for the main airport area is 99.24 percent accomplished with 390.95 hectares already acquired,” he said.

The main airport requires 393.94 hectares of land.

The Laguindingan International Airport sits on a 4.17 square kilometer site in Laguindingan’s Moog village and it is located 46 kilometers from the Lumbia Airport in Cagayan de Oro City.

Once completed, it will be the fourth international airport in Mindanao, after the Francisco Bangoy International Airport in Davao City, Zamboanga International Airport in Zamboanga City, and the General Santos International Airport in General Santos City.

It will also have the distinction of being the first International airport in Northern Mindanao.

The Laguindingan International Airport is the flagship project of the Cagayan de Oro-Iligan Corridor Special Development Project, which covers both cities of Iligan and Cagayan de Oro, including the five coastal towns of Lanao del Norte and 22 towns of Misamis Oriental.

The airport will primarily replace the existing Lumbia Airport in Cagayan de Oro City and it is also expected to replace the Maria Cristina Airport in Iligan City.

A five-person team from the Economic Development Cooperation Fund appraisal mission on LADP-Air Navigation Aid System Supply Project recently visited Northern Mindanao for a site survey and to conduct fact-finding activities on the sub-project.

The team also visited the Lumbia Airport Control Tower in Cagayan de Oro City to appraise the air navigation system equipment there.

Gico said the occupants of the land where the airport site sits have already been relocated to their new houses and each family were also given relocation fees.

He said 370 families have been relocated – 134 families at the Phase 1 resettlement site in San Isidro village, and 236 families at the Phase 2 resettlement site in Tubajon village.

P7.85-B Laguindingan international airport on target to operate in January 2012

Posted on June 1, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





The P7.853-billion ($167.09- million) international airport in this municipality is 65-percent complete and will be closer to completion once the new Aquino administration takes office.

The Laguindingan International Airport is set for completion by year- end 2011 and should be operational by January 2012.

Ryan B. Gico of the Laguindingan Airport Development Project (LADP-PMO) Project Management Office, said that civil works and building construction were already 65-percent complete as of May 14.

“We have already reached, as of May 14, a 65-percent completion rate of the airport’s civil works,” he said in a recent interview at the LADP-PMO located above the airport site.

Gico said other requirements for the full operation of the airport, such as access road, were completed in January.

“Land acquisition for the main airport area is 99.24-percent accomplished, with 390.95 hectares already acquired,” he said.

The main airport, he said, requires 393.94 hectares of land.

The Laguindingan Airport Development Project is a priority concern under the 2004-2010 Medium-Term Philippine Development Plan.

He said occupants of the airport site have already been relocated to brand-new houses. Each family was also given relocation fees.

He said 370 families have been relocated: 134 families at Phase 1 resettlement site in barangay San Isidro and 236 families at Phase 2 resettlement site in barangay Tubajon, both in Laguindingan.

Gico said the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) is now acquiring the needed navigation facilities and equipment component of the project.

Funds for their acquisition are provided by the Korean Export-Import (Kexim) Bank through a loan, he added.

The airport sits on a 4.17-square- kilometer site in barangay Moog in this municipality. It is 46 kilometers from the existing Lumbia Airport in neighboring Cagayan de Oro City.

Once completed, it will be the fourth International airport in Mindanao, after Francisco Bangoy International Airport in Davao City; Zamboanga International Airport in Zamboanga City; and General Santos International Airport in General Santos City.

It will also have the distinction of being the first international airport in Northern Mindanao.

The airport is the flagship project of the Cagayan de Oro-Iligan Corridor Special Development Project, which covers both cities of Iligan and Cagayan de Oro, as well as five coastal towns in Lanao del Norte and 22 towns of Misamis Oriental’s first and second congressional districts.

The airport will primarily replace the existing Lumbia Airport in Cagayan de Oro City, and also expected to replace Maria Cristina Airport in Iligan City.

It was learned that on May 18, a five-person team from the Economic Development Cooperation Fund (EDCF) appraisal mission on LADP-Air Navigation Aid System Supply Project visited Northern Mindanao for a site survey and to conduct fact-finding activities for the subproject.

The team visited the Lumbia Airport Control Tower in barangay Lumbia, Cagayan de Oro City, to appraise the airnavigation system equipment there.

CONSTRUCTION of different buildings at the P7.853 billion (US$167.09 million) Laguindingan International Airport in Laguindingan town, Misamis Oriental are now in full swing, a report from Project Management Office (PMO) of the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) said.

As of July 18, the passenger terminal building is now 22.86 percent complete while the operation and control tower building is now 24.27 percent complete.

Other structures at the airport such as the power house building is now 38.61 percent complete and the cargo terminal building now stood at 24.91 percent complete while the crash fire and rescue building is 28.95 percent complete.

The maintenance building, cold water receiving station, administration building, waste water treatment plant and other airport support facilities are also nearing completion through the efforts of contractor Hanjin Heavy Industries and Const. Co. Ltd.

Hanjin is in-charge of the airport’s P5.279 billion worth of civil works and buildings, which include the 45-meter runway, taxiways A and B, main apron, the passenger terminal building, the operation and control tower building, power house building, cargo terminal building, maintenance building, cold water receiving station, administration building, waste water treatment plant, and other airport support facilities.

Construction of buildings and civil works at the airport started on January 18, 2008 and is expected to be finished by January 17, 2012.

For the air navigation system and support facilities, estimated to cost P743.399 million (US$15.817 million), implementation is set to start in the second quarter of 2010 and is expected to be finished by the second quarter of 2012.

The minutes of discussion (MOD) between the Korea Export-Import Bank and the Government of the Philippines for the air navigation system and support facilities was already signed on May 21, 2010 but bid documents are still being finalized by Yooshin Engineering Corp. in consultation with Kexim and DOTC Bids and Awards Committee.

Meanwhile, the access road leading to the airport is already finished while the DOTC is still in the process of paying the 2.99 hectares of land not yet acquired for the main airport. But the PMO said this land is outside the work area and will not affect the ongoing construction.

The Laguindingan International Airport, which sits in a 418.14 hectare area, is envisioned to be a new major trunkline airport to be constructed and operated based on the relevant standards and recommended practices of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). It aims to cater to the increasing aviation traffic demand not only in Northern Mindanao but the whole island of Mindanao.

The total project cost of the airport when it was approved by the National Economic and Development Authority (Neda) Investment Coordination Committee-Cabinet Committee (ICC-CC) on June 13, 1995 was pegged at P707.80 million (US$36.77 million) but was later revised to P7.853 billion (US$167.09 million).

The airport’s total project cost is sourced from EDCF-Republic of Korea (US$30.60 million), KEXIM Bank Export Credit (US62.75 million), Government of the Philippines (US$60.36 million) and EDCF-ANSSFSP (US$13.38 million).

Gico said bid documents have been submitted to the DoTC Bids and Awards Committee for approval after the Internal Committee of the KEXIM Bank had approved the project on July 23, 2010.

The Laguindingan International Airport is set for completion on the last month of next year and will be open to airlines on the first month of 2012.

The airport sits on a 4.17-square kilometer site in this town’s Moog village and it is located 46 kilometers from the Lumbia Airport in Cagayan de Oro City.

Once completed, it will be the fourth international airport in Mindanao, after the Francisco Bangoy International Airport in Davao City, Zamboanga International Airport in Zamboanga City; and the General Santos International Airport in General Santos City.

Mindanao Shipyard Reopening Preparations Underway
Posted on June 17, 2009 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction – Philippines (HHIC-Phil) yesterday (June 16) set up a Mindanao Project Team to prepare for the reopening of HHIC operations in the Phividec Industrial Estate, in the event that the world shipbuilding business shows sign of recovery. The team already put up a fence along the boundary of the estate’s premises as an indication of the reserved area for development. Since April 2008, HHIC has been running a training center within the vicinity to provide job opportunities to local residents and, in turn, contribute to the development of the area.

Shipyard project to resume after crisis
Posted on September 10, 2009 by damarre

By MARK FRANCISCO




HANJIN Heavy Industries and Construction Corp. will resume its shipyard construction in Misamis Oriental once the global economic crisis is over.

Hanjin Heavy president Jeong Shup Shim forecast that the crisis is coming to an end soon and expected his firm to resume operations at the Phividec Industrial Estate immediately after.

Jeong declined to give a target date. He said the Hanjin group is one of the most ‘‘conservative’’ private companies in South Korea in terms of expanding investments. Hanjin Heavy is one of the companies comprising Hanjin Group.

Earlier, it was reported by Asia-Pacific media that many firms in South Korea stopped expanding their investments abroad late last year as a means to streamline their expenses when the 2008 recession in North America slowly spread across the Atlantic in Europe, leaping towards Asia.

At the same time, Jeong said Hanjin Heavy has already resolved its issues with the local governments of Misamis Oriental.

It was reported in 2008 that Hanjin Heavy abruptly pulled out of its $2.5 billion shipyard project because of ‘‘disturbances’’ in dealing with the local officials.

Misamis Oriental Gov. Oscar Moreno said Hanjin wanted to deal only with one government agency––the Phividec Industrial Authority.

In March, Hanjin Heavy asked for a one-year extension of its memorandum of understanding with the government to build the shipyard in Misamis Oriental.





Shipbuilder Hanjin Heavy pursuing P8-billion expansion in Mindanao
Posted on April 12, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Korea’s giant shipbuilder Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Co.-Philippines (HHIC-Phils.) has remained interested in pursuing its P8-billion expansion project in the Phividec Industrial Estate in Tagoloan, Misamis, Oriental.

Philippine Economic Zone Authority Director General Lilia B. De Lima told reporters at the sidelines of the 15th PEZA Investors Recognition Night that Hanjin officials conveyed this message late last year.

According to De Lima, the Korean shipbuilder is just closely watching the economy following the global financial crisis, which took a heavy toll among shipbuilders and shipping firms.

“They are just waiting for the right time,” she said.

Hanjin had registered with PEZA in 2008, but it had a tiff with the local government unit in Misamis Oriental that also caused some delays in the project’s implementation.

The proposed project in Phividec was supposedly an expansion of Hanjin’s existing project in Subic Bay Freeport but on a larger scale.

“This is bigger than Subic because this is going to occupy a total of 450 hectares compared to Subic’s 200-hectares only,” De Lima said.

Hanjin’s investments in Subic was placed at $1.6 billion and is employing more than 15,000 workers at the freeport. The company has been exporting ocean-going vessels made in Subic Freeport.

HHIC-Phils. officials said the company expects to produce more ships in Subic as the productivity in its shipyard here is fast catching up with Hanjin’s shipyard in South Korea saying the goal is to make the Philippine operations at par with its South Korean counterpart in terms of efficiency and quality of work.





Hanjin to complete MisOr shipyard by 2017
Posted on January 7, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com








In an article from BusinessWorld, Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Co. (HHIC) is said to complete its shipyard project in Misamis Oriental by 2017.

This was gathered during a recent ceremony attended by President Benigno S. C. Aquino III at the Korean firm’s shipyard in Subic Bay Freeport Zone for the unveiling of two bulk carriers purchased by Indian company Adani Shipping Pte. Ltd.

The bulk carriers, which were named M/V Rahi and M/V Vanshi after the daughters of Adani’s owner, each weighed 175,000 metric tons with the overall length of 289 meters, breadth of 45 meters and depth of 24.6 meters.

In his address during the ceremonies, Mr. Aquino reiterated his administration’s promise of a business-friendly environment, saying incentives are already being provided to investors.

These include exemption from the value-added tax on importation of equipment and machinery, income tax holiday, and exemption of duties on selected equipment.

He noted that HHIC has invested some $1.9 billion in the Philippines and would generate more jobs with the completion of its new shipyard in Misamis Oriental by 2017.

Below is a portion of PNoy’s speech: SOURCE : http://www.gov.ph/2011/01/06/speech-...anuary-6-2011/




The shipyard project at PHIVIDEC has been put on hold for some time now and optimism is high that Hanjin will resume the construction this year after Hanjin received more orders for additional sea vessels. A cousin of mine who works at the Subic Shipyard has informed me they have delivered 18 vessels so far with at least 60 more on the list excluding the 2 carriers unveiled. He doubts whether Subic alone can deliver them on time. He also said there at least 20,000 workers in Subic and that those who have trained at HHIC’s Training Facility in Villanueva will return once the shipyard project resumes which will require approximately 40,000 jobs.

Below are old photos of the training facility in Villanueva. Those who have completed the training here are sent to Subic.

I believe 2017 is the completion of the whole shipyard which will be implemented in several phases similar to Subic. If they resume this year, they can build the first ship at PHIVIDEC by end of 2012 or early 2013.

P3-Billion Coke Bottling Plant photo updates
Posted on June 17, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Passed by the 11-hectare industrial complex at Katipunan, Villanueva, Misamis Oreintal being developed by Coca-Cola Bottlers Phils. Inc. (CCBPI) this morning and took some snap shots of the area. As seen in the pictures, there is ongoing massive earthmovement and earthfilling activities on the site.

Engineers are still conducting surveys of the possible final elevation level and perhaps topographic plan for the P3-billion bottling complex which is expected to produce popular beverage brands such as Coke, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite, Sprite Light, Royal, Pop Cola, Sarsi, Cheers, Lift, Jaz Cola, and Sparkle and Wilkins, the most admired distilled bottled water in the country today.





Picture still shows a water pondage at the center of the property, a product of recent rainfall. This is just temporary due to the ongoing civil works. The plant is expected to be operational by first quarter of 2011.









Seen in the background shown below is Cargill Philippines, Inc., maker of animal feeds of the “Purina” brand. The vicinity is characterized of industrial use such as SUGECO, FB Uy Dressing Plant, and Limketkai Mfg. Corp., and Phil. Sinter Corp. a distant further.



With this new development, more work will be made available for the province’s workforce. With Hanjin rumored to resume their shipyard project in a few months, expect business to be booming in this side of town with positive economic impacts on Cagayan de Oro City and the region as a whole.





PROJECT WATCH: Coke Mega Bottling Plant updates
Posted on December 30, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





Coca-Cola Bottlers Phils., Inc. (CCBPI) is speeding up the construction of its multi-billion mega bottling facility located at Villanueva, Misamis Oriental as shown in the latest pictures at the site.


The previous photos taken onsite where last June and heavy equipment were still in the earthfilling and compacting stage. Six months later, the main frontage is almost done and the structural steel frames of the main buildings are already standing. The rush should be attributed to the high demand of CCBPI’s beverage products in the region.

Accordingly, all production lines in their Cagayan de Oro facility along CM Recto will be transferred to the new site, perhaps one production line at a time? Once vacated, their CDO facility will be converted into a warehouse but rumors are circulating that talks are ongoing for a large investor negotiating to acquire the property which is a prime location for a commercial undertaking.

More photos below.







Photo below shows the project site on the right upon approaching Katipunan junction in Villanueva. Guess there’s a dire need to expand the highway on this part.



Based on the plan, the frontage will have space allocations for 35 vehicles for employees and 35 vehicles for visitors. The right side (facing the complex) is where the long hauler trucks will park. More wide spaces inside the complex for the trucks to maneuver.





There will also be six production lines: 3 recyclable glass bottles (RGB) lines, 1 nrPET (non-recyclable Polyethylene) lines and 2 lines for bottled drinking water as shown below.

ALI allots record P33-B capex for 2011
By JAMES A. LOYOLA
February 13, 2011, 3:33pm


MANILA, Philippines - Real estate giant Ayala Land Inc. is allotting a record P33 billion for its capital expenditures this year, 65 percent higher than the P20 billion it actually spent in 2010, as it continues to take advantage of growth opportunities.

In an interview, ALI president Antonino Aquino said the biggest share of the capex (46 percent) will be used for the construction of residential projects as the firm aims to launch 20,000 housing units worth P57 billion this year.

ALI chief finance officer Jaime Ysmael said the company aims to double the 10,000 units it sold in 2010 although the value is just 17 percent higher than the P49 billion sold in 2010.

Aquino noted that ALI focused on higher-end products last year while the bulk (about 50 percent) of sales this year is expected to come from newly launched affordable housing brand Amaia.

Meanwhile, Ysmael said ALI will earmark 27 percent of this year’s capex for the construction of more leasing space, both for commercial centers and office spaces for the business process outsourcing sector.

He added the remaining 21 percent of the capital expenditures will support ALI’s landbanking activities, including horizontal development costs, while the remaining 6 percent will be for the development of more businessmen’s hotels and resorts.

Aquino said they will be opening more Cocoon businessmen’s hotels including one each in Cagayan de Oro, Alabang and Nuvali. ALI is also eyeing other sites in provincial cities.

Aside from Cocoon, Aquino said they will continue to develop more island-resorts through newly-acquired Ten Knots which will be opening its fourth resort in Pangalusian Island, Palawan this year.

Aquino said ALI will be aggressive with its tourism projects as it sees strong growth potential in the business. He added that they will initially focus expanding the resort chain in Palawan, including putting up a resort in the main island.

Ysmael said the bulk of the company’s funding requirements for this year’s capex has been addressed at the parent company level although there will be a few more fund-raising activities mainly at the subsidiary level.
