The Oil Palm business of A Brown Co., Inc. is being handled by its wholly-owned subsidiary – A Brown Energy and Resources Development, Inc. (ABERDI). Its Oil Palm Nursery at Xavier Estates in Cagayan de Oro City has increased from an initial 9 hectares (from company website) to 30 hectares now as stated in local news reports.


ABERDI maintains a much larger palm nursery in Kalabugao, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon with a total area of nearly 600 has. Nursery period is 9-12 months.

ABERDI has two (2) divisions, the plantation and the mill. The oil palm plantation is located in Dalirig, Kalabugao in Manolo Fortich and one Impasug-ong, all of which are located in the Bukidnon Province of Mindanao. The Dalirig plantation started in October 2002, for Impasug-ong – in year 2004 and for Kalabugao – in year 2006. Total area planted are as follows: Dalirig = 27.2 has., Kalabugao = 565.66 has. and Impasug-ong = 3.60 has. Of this area, 58 hectares are flowering. Harvesting started in June 2005 for Dalirig and on June 2007 in Impasug-ong.



The oil palm specie being planted is Tenera (Dura x Pesifera) whose origin is from South Africa. The area elevation (above sea level) for each location are as follows: Dalirig = 600 mtrs., Kalabugao = 800 mtrs. and Impasug-ong = 600 mtrs.

On the other hand, the palm oil mill began constructing in March 2006. It has a feed capacity of 1.5 tons/hr. while its output of crude palm oil (cpo) is 6 tons per day for a 20 hour operation. The palm oil extraction process is called hydraulic extraction. The oil extraction ratio of crude palm oil range from 15% to 20% while Palm Kernel recovery ranges from 3% to 5% respectively. Other products are sludge oil, fiber and shell empty bunches sludge as non-food uses.

According to news reports, ABERDI is targeting to plant around 20,000 hectares of palm trees in Misamis Oriental.

Cepalco plans to put up 4 solar power plants worth P2.2B
Posted on December 28, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




LOCAL POWER distribution and generation firm Cagayan Electric Power and Light Co. Inc. plans to invest P2.24 billion in four solar power facilities in Misamis Oriental.

Data from the Department of Energy showed that Cepalco targets to build four solar facilities with a capacity of 5 megawatts each, in Kirahon, Villanueva.

Each facility is expected to cost P560 million.

Based on the timeline given by Cepalco to the DOE, it targets to put up one solar power plant every five years beginning 2015 until 2030. These projects have been listed as “indicative” by the DOE, which means the applicant company has yet to complete the necessary permits/clearances and financial closing.

Cepalco currently owns and operates the sole 1-MW solar plant in Cagayan de Oro.


The facility started its commercial operations in September 2004 after securing its first certificate of compliance from the Energy Regulatory Commission.

The plant is connected to the existing distribution lines of Cepalco with an annual energy generation capacity of 1.3 million kilowatt-hours.

According to the ERC, the photovoltaic plant displaces barrels of fuel oil and avoids around 24,000 tons of carbon compound emission into the environment.

Cepalco operates the photovoltaic plant in conjunction with its 7-MW Bubunawan hydropower facility, thus enabling the joint PV/hydro resource to effectively reduce system demand.

The photovoltaic plant is deemed to be the first of its kind in the world because it is designed for conjunctive use with the 7-MW hydro plant.

With the aggregate installed capacity of 26,850 KW, Cepalco provides 1.55 percent of the maximum carrying capability of the Mindanao grid and only 0.19 percent of the national grid.

Cepalco’s solar facility, which sits on a two-hectare lot, is a “fuel-less” electric generating plant that uses sunlight to generate electricity.

The Regional Development Council (RDC) of Region 10 recently endorsed a 2005 resolution endorsing the implementation of the 6-megawatt Limbatangon Hydroeletric Power (HEP) Project in Barangay Lumbia, Cagayan de Oro City.

This, after RDC-X confirmed that the proposed project is supportive of the national government’s agenda of energy dependence as stated in the 2004-2010 Medium-Term Philippine Development Plan (MTPDP).

Supportive of the Renewable Energy Act and the Mini-HEP Incentive Act, the 6MW Limbatangon HEP is expected to help the growing demand for electricity in Mindanao, Dacanay, who is also the Vice-Chairperson of RDC-X, said.

A run-of-river scheme HEP plant, the project will be implemented in two (2) years by the Turbines Resources and Development Corp. (TRDC), a private-owned corporation with head office in Cagayan de Oro City.

It will require an estimated total investment of Php1.314B and will be built at the left bank of the Cagayan de Oro River and approximately runs 142 meters downstream from the confluence of the Cagayan and Bubunawan Rivers.

Dacanay said the project aims to develop potential renewable energy source to augment existing power supply in Cagayan de Oro City and to generate income and employment for the people in the barangay and the concerned local government units.

Also endorsed by the Cagayan de Oro City Council in 2005, through the TRDC, represented by Fr. Emeterio J. Barcelon, SJ, project already got its Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) issued by the Environmental Management Bureau of the Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in June, this year, Dacanay added.

“The approval of the City Council is one of the requirements of Marina so that our request for franchise would be approved,” Chiongban said.

During the session, the city councilors present unanimously approved the company’s application, citing the bright prospect for the shipping industry and the city’s need to link with different destinations in the country.

LKK Gateway-MUST overpass steel beams now installed
Posted on February 19, 2011 by damarre



The main steel beams for the Limketkai Gateway-MUST overpass are now installed. As shown in the pictures, the contractors for the beams are tightening the huge bolts which hold the beams together.
The overpass provides direct access to the second floor of LKK Gateway as observed. Chowking will be the first store you’ll see on the right. Students from MUST and other clients coming from the opposite side need not cross the dangerous section of CM Recto Avenue towards Limketkai Complex. This is also a good protection from the sun and of course rain.

Informatics CDO to be converted into IT College
Posted on December 11, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Information technology school Informatics Philippines will be transforming its Cagayan de Oro center into a full-fledged IT college

Informatics chief executive Leo Riingen was quoted that instead of adding more centers or campuses to its nationwide network of 38, the academic institution planned to just convert its centers in Cagayan de Oro as well as in Baguio and Cebu into full-fledged colleges. This is Informatics’ effort to make quality and affordable IT education more accessible, especially to people in the provinces.

Informatics began as a Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) learning center. With the planned conversion, there will be upgrading of all computers and curriculum.

Informatics had three new courses that were awaiting the approval of the Tesda: wireless security, film and video editing and production, and computer forensics and investigation.

Riingen related that these new courses would equip students with the right skills that were now being sought by banks, government agencies, the police and the entertainment industry.

In IT education, very much in demand now areJava, Oracle and Net courses in the programming track; Adobe, web design and development, and animation in the graphics and digital arts track; and various networking tools and programs.

Game development, situated somewhere between programming and digital arts, isalso on the rise. Informatics would likewise be adding Mac programs to its course offerings, including Final Cut Pro and Garage Band.

As a learning institution, Informatics aimed to provided basic IT training to as many people as possible, and provide education to those wanting to pursue careers in the IT industry, either fresh out of high school or after another degree.

Metro Pacific studying tollway in CDO
Posted on December 6, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com



Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. is eyeing Cagayan de Oro as among the major cities in Visayas and Mindanao as target for its planned expansion outside Luzon.


In a statement, Manuel V. Pangilinan, chairman of Metro Pacific Tollways, said they are continuing studies for an expansion outside Luzon and discuss projects with local government units. Aside from Cagayan de Oro, MPTC is also considering the cities of Cebu and Davao.

The company, which operates the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx), posted a 22% surge in profits to P1.09 billion in the nine months that ended in September, due to a 6% growth in average daily vehicle entries to 158,045.

Metro Pacific Tollways will spend P25 billion for 3 big-ticket road projects.

* the 4-lane, 2.42-kilometer (km.) Segment 9 stretch that will connect NLEx to MacArthur Highway in Valenzuela City
* the 2-lane, 5.65-km. Segment 10 elevated road from MacArthur Highway to Radial Road R-10
* the 13.2-km. connector road that will link the NLEx at C-3 Road to the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 1 on South Luzon Expressway

Now, a good candidate for Metro Pacific is the continuation of the Cagayan de Oro Coastal Highway stretching from Gusa to Bugo. The Macabalan to Gusa section is currently under construction. Perhaps Mr. Pangilinan could finance the remaining but longer segment which may run 12 kilometers.







ABC 5 to setup CDO TV facility
Posted on December 3, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Cagayan de Oro is known to be a Kapamilya city, recently Kapuso had its maiden tv broadcast. How about Kapatid? Expect local programming to heat up as Associated Broadcasting Corp. (ABC-5) is reportedly setting up their local TV facilities in Bulua next year.


Mediaquest, the corporate vehicle for media-related investments of the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) group, owns 100 percent of television network ABC-5 and Primedia Inc., the broadcasting firm’s major block airtimer. PLDT chairman is Manuel Pangilinan.

The proposed site is near the Smart Communications facility along Macapagal Drive, just a stone’s throw from ABS-CBN studio. Pangilinan also owns Smart (see the logic?). Just recently, GMA announced its re-entry into the local news scene with ISYU KARON NORTHERN MINDANAO.

ABC’s biggest acquisition so far is controversial Willie Revillame with its “Willing Willie” Show.







P1.1 million Bagsakan Center to be established in Bulua
Posted on November 20, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




A P1.1 million Bagsakan Center (BC) will soon be established at the Westbound Terminal and Public Market in Bulua, Cagayan de Oro City.

This after the City Council passed a resolution on Wednesday allowing the City Government to enter into a memorandum of agreement with the Department of Agriculture (DA) for the establishment of the Bagsakan Center, which is a food depot and distribution system that would offer safe and quality agri-fishery products to consumers at low prices.

The project is in consonance with the DA’s program that specifically addresses five major concerns — food security, poverty alleviation and social equity, income enhancement and profitability of farmers, and global competitiveness and sustainability by providing sufficient, quality and low price wage goods.

Through the Bagsakan Center, farmers can bring their produce in bulk for sale directly to wholesalers, retailers and consumers at fair prices.

Potential farmers-suppliers of the Bagsakan Center will be identified with Cagayan de Oro farmers as priority who will be issued identification cards to ensure traceability and responsibility in producing safe and quality farm products.

A Bagsakan management team will be created that would handle the buying and selling of selected vegetables at the site. The team members will also be responsible for the identification of buyers for the vegetables.

Also, a marketing system will also be implemented to screen the maximum residue limit of certain fruits and vegetables for them to be safe for consumption.

Bellevue Hotel Group sales, occupancy up in 2010; targets CDO
Posted on November 9, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com



THE BELLEVUE Group of Hotels, Inc. has so far enjoyed better business this year than in 2009 despite recent incidents that could have driven away tourists, an official said late last week.

Sales of and occupancy at its flagship hotel, Bellevue Manila, for 2010 as of early November have topped year-ago levels despite the hostage crisis in August that left eight Hong Kong tourists dead and the more recent reports of a terror threat, the company’s revenue manager Annie Bisuna said.

The US State Department issued on Nov. 2 a statement warning Americans of terrorist attacks “not only in the Southern islands but also in other areas, to include Manila.”

“Year-to-date, given the two incidents, 2010 fared better than 2009 in terms of both revenue and occupancy,” Ms. Bisuna said.

“November and the first two weeks of December are good months for the hotel industry. December would also be the month where our most balikbayan would visit the Philippines and spend their holidays,” Ms. Bisuna said.

Earlier, the company opened its second hotel also in Alabang to cater to budget travelers. The 11-storey B Hotel took around P500 million to construct.

The company is planning to expand to Bohol, El Nido in Palawan and Cagayan de Oro within the next three years.


Several other hotel industry players were similarly upbeat that they would still post growth this year despite the hostage crisis in August.

Full-year sales, they said, were expected to hold up as the incident was likely only to have a short-term impact.

Dev’t of Laguindingan area starts
Posted on February 18, 2011 by damarre



Governor Oscar S. Moreno reveals that the government is now ironing out new projects to be laid on the surrounding areas of the Laguindingan Airport in Misamis Oriental.

The airport construction is set to be completed next year, prompting all key agencies in the government to start their dialogue and set everything in order.
Their hands are full of equally important matters to tackle such road widening projects, water system, energy supply, placements of hospital, telecommunications facilities and boosting tourism.

The National Economic Research and Business Action Center (NERBAC) meanwhile is considering the putting up shuttle service from the airport to the nearby cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan.

NERBAC is also looking into the feasibility of putting up fast craft service in the airport to provide an alternate route and drop off terminals to any parts of the region.

PROJECT WATCH: Granvia Residences launched
Posted on February 18, 2011 by damarre



JOHNDORF Ventures Corporation (JVC) has recently launched its first vertical condominium project in Cagayan de Oro City, Granvia Residences located at the Pueblo IT Park along Trade Street at Pueblo de Oro, just beside Concentrix.

The project launching was held January 28 with an Open House last February 3. All the 69 studio type condo units are ready-for-occupancy (RFO) which means they are fully-furnished. Selling price is around P1.3 million. The building also has a 24-hour security and CCTV camera. Access to Wi-Fi is also not a problem.










The project’s location is very convenient with just walking distance from SM City, schools and other business establishments. Four (4) commercial units are also available at the ground floor ideal for coffee shops, convenience store and perhaps laundry service.
At this early, reports state that 50% of the 23.25-sq.m. studio type units have already been reserved. Construction is expected to be completed in summer of this year.
With this progress which sales agents also expect Granvia to be sold out in April, I have no doubt the second building, Granvia 2 might begin construction anytime soon. This will reportedly rise at the back of the 2,500-square meter property along Commerce Street.

City, police to build P15M office
Posted on October 14, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





THE Cagayan de Oro City Government and the Philippine National Police (PNP) have joined together for the construction of a P15 million office for the city’s police force in Barangay 40.

Councilor Ian Mark Nacaya, chair of the City Council committee on police, fire and public safety, said the City Government has allotted P5 million for the proposed project while the PNP provided P10 million.

During a meeting with police officials last week, Nacaya said he will order the immediate construction of the new office, to be located near the City Health Office.

“The old Cocpo (Cagayan de Oro City Police Office) building in Carmen will no longer be fixed,” Nacaya said. He said the building will have state-of-the-art facilities such as computers, fax machines and other equipment needed by police.

Nacaya said the new Cocpo building will also have prison cells but would be much wider to accommodate more convicts with separate quarters for minors and female and male convicts.

“It is high time that these officials will be given a decent office and station to boost their morale and improve their service to every Kagay-anon,” Nacaya said.

Cocpo Chief Benedicto Lopez said the fund from the PNP will be released as soon as the title of ownership will be transferred and named after Cocpo.

Photo above shows the perspective of the building which can be seen at the Maharlika Headquarters in Carmen. I don’t know if there are changes in the design. The proposed area is near the vicinity of Hall of Justice and new City Tennis Courts. The previous site was still in Carmen. See my post last November 18, 2009.

cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com

The city government is mulling to construct a state-of-the-art sports facility in Barangay Lumbia, this city.

In a special report during the City Council’s regular session on Tuesday, Councilor Ian Mark Nacaya said the Council has already passed an ordinance requesting for allocation for the sports facility, which is set to be constructed within a 10-hectare land in Lumbia.

He said the sports facility will be built like a dome to cater to big conventions with complete line of sports facilities such as pools, tennis court, track and field, basketball courts and other amenities.

Once it is signed, he said the City Council will identify the lot for the immediate construction of the sports facility.

If it will be in Lumbia, the 10-hectare lot should be somewhere near Koresco, Xavier Estates Phase 4 or the intersection of the South Diversion Road leading to Pelaez Bridge.

cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





Here’s some updated renderings of the proposed Student Entrepreneurship Program (SEP) Building of Xavier University to be located fronting Corrales Avenue between the agriculture and science center buildings.

As seen in the main perspective above, this will now be a 4-storey structure accessible to the public. It was previously just a 2-storey building. 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.

Shown below is the top view of the covered walkway connecting the EP Building to the campus and the closer view.





Below is the SEP Building (in the background) and the covered walkway…perhaps as seen from the proposed Magis Student Complex.



Show below is the proposed campus entrance located at the rear of the SEP Building. Said entrance style is now also installed at the main entrance of the university fronting PNB.



As per project prupose, the building plans to teach students entrepreneurship skills. In fact, one of the successful (IMO) project by students is the Malunggay Pastel…

We’ll just wait for info as to when this will begin.

PROJECT WATCH: Puerto Flyover plans
Posted on September 27, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





Got this from friend….plans for the Puerto Flyover. Based on the plan, the project including the approaches from both ends will be 340 meters long. Also, to accommodate the flyover, two more additional lanes will be constructed along the highway, one for each direction.

As shown below, each support of the proposed infrastructure will have four (4) columns. The flyover will start just a few meters from the pedestrian overpass and ends justy before Puerto Community Hospital. As seen in the plans, the additional lanes on both sides will affect the existing establishments along the stretch, so right-of-way negotiations will have to be made.

NMMC to expand soon
Posted on September 28, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




NORTHERN Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) will add one level in each of its three buildings to accommodate newly-donated beds. A truckfull of beds and other facilities equivalent to one surgical room was donated by the World Medical Relief to NMMC last Thursday through the auspices of the Misamis Oriental Fil-Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry (MOFCCCI).


It took the whole day yesterday for workers to unload all the equipment in the 20-foot container van at the NMMC façade. The beds, needles, dialysis machines and other surgical equipment turned over yesterday were worth US$800,000.

World Medical Relief Philippines coordinator Dr. David Zarate said four more container vans full of medical equipment will arrive by January from its headquarters in Michigan. Because of this, NMMC chief of hospital Dr. Jose Chan said he will replace all of the old manual beds with the new automatic beds donated by the World Medical Relief. Three additional floors will be constructed as well.

Zarate also announced that two 500 kvA generators will be donated by the World Medical Relief for the hospital, too.These generators were in turn donated by veterans hospitals in the United States whose generator sets were ordered replaced through the stimulus package of President Obama.

MOFCCCI headed by president Robert Ching, was able to broker the donation because Zarate is a member of the group.

Dr. Zarate also added that two 500KVA Cummins generators are coming in by November, ‘these generators will ensure that there will be no power interruptions in the services, especially now that the Mindanao is experience power outages,’ Dr. Zarate said.

Perspective of proposed St. Francis Xavier Parish Church at Pueblo
Posted on September 8, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpresscom




Shown above is the perspective of the proposed St. Francis Xavier Parish Church at Pueblo de Oro. This will be the religious component of the multi-use development of Pueblo de Oro and the only missing special aspect of the township. There is still no construction observed onsite.

The site is just near Philamlife Village, where its multi-purpose hall is currently being used temporarily for masses by the nearby community. The increasing population of the township also necessitates the establishment of a parish.

Based on the design by HS Busgano Architect Studio, the chapel has a very unique shape with ramps and stairs at the front. The glass (or whatever you may call it) located just above the entrance shows the image of St. Francis Xavier.





The chapel and its component buildings will be built solely on donations and sponsors.

When this project will be completed, the township is now complete: residential, commercial (SM), educational (Xavier), recreational (golf course), ambulatory clinic (CUMC), condominiums, and hotel (Koresco).

Tablon health center to be upgraded into primary hospital
Posted on August 24, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





THE health center of Barangay Tablon will soon be upgraded into a 25-bed primary hospital and basic emergency obstetric care (BemOC) center.

The decision came after Cagayan de Oro second district Representative Rufus Rodriguez and Abante Mindanao (Abamin) party-list Representative Maximo Rodriguez passed House Bill (HB) 0252, which seeks to upgrade Tablon health center.

The city’s second district, Rodriguez said, is lacking with hospitals that can provide sufficient and effective medical attention to people belonging to lower bracket of society.

“This will be a big help to the people of the second district especially those in the hinterland barangays,” Rodriguez told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro by phone.

Under HB 0252, BEmOC center will be under the direct supervision of the NMMC and Department of Health (DOH)-Northern Mindanao, citing DOH shall promulgate the necessary rules and regulations for the effective implementation of this Act.

The bill gets support from City Councilor Dante Pajo, chair of the City Council’s committee on health.

“I understand that the thrust of our congressmen is to implement health programs particularly in upgrading the barangay health centers into a mini-hospital, it’s a good purpose,” Pajo told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro.

Pajo added he is also expecting Cagayan de Oro first district Representative Benjamin Benaldo to duplicate this project in the first district.

Benaldo earlier promised to implement health projects as one of his platforms during his campaign in the last May 10 polls.

“Nakauna lang si Congressman Rodriguez but I hope Congressman Benaldo will also fulfill his promise,” Pajo said.







Oro, HUDCC tie up for housing project
Posted on August 23, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





CAGAYAN de Oro City Government is tying up with the committee on Housing and Urban Development Coordination Council (HUDCC) headed by Vice President Jejomar Binay to develop an affordable and decent socialized housing project in the city.

The housing project would reportedly have a monthly amortization of only P340.

Councilor Alexander Dacer, chair of the City Council committee on urban poor, said Cagayan de Oro City is very fortunate to be chosen as the first beneficiary of Binay’s project.

“Vice President Binay personally called Mayor Vicente Emano of the good news as he will allocate millions of pesos to fund his first low-cost housing project in the city,” Dacer said.

As counterpart, the city will buy a 50-hectare vacant lot somewhere in Barangay Calaanan, Indahag or Balubal.

Dacer said the beneficiaries of the housing project are those living in crowded shanties, alleys and sidewalks, creeks and rivers banks, and even those who live near the sea.

He said in every unit, they will allocate about 50 to 70 square meters for a typical housing unit equipped with complete drainage system and basic amenities.

“We will identify the number of beneficiaries the soonest as ordered by Mayor Emano, so he will fly to Manila and personally present to Vice President Binay the polished socialized housing project,” Dacer said.

He emphasized that a proper screening will follow to identify those beneficiaries who deserve to benefit the housing project.

New city sanitary landfill to cost P300 Million
Posted on August 12, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




TO SOLVE the rising problem of garbage in Cagayan de Oro City, the City Government will reportedly spend a whopping P300 million for the construction of a sophisticated sanitary landfill in Barangay Pagatpat.

Alex Jimenez, chief of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Northern Mindanao’s Environmental Impact Assessment Monitoring Division, said the proposed landfill site is about 30 hectares.

“It is where the existing landfill at Sitio Zayas in Barangay Carmen will be transferred,” Jimenez said.

He added that the City Government in collaboration with the DENR has been drawing frameworks to realize what is said to be “an expensive project” under the administration of Mayor Vicente Y. Emano.

Jimenez said the budget for other social services of the City Government have to be sacrificed should the project be pursued.

The DENR is one of the members of an adhoc committee in the City Council created to look into the possibility of establishing not only an ordinary dumpsite but a sanitary landfill in particular, which is now under study.

Sanitary landfills are sites where waste is isolated from the environment until it is considered safe when it has completely degraded biologically, chemically and physically.

According to experts, there are four minimum basic conditions that should be met by any site design and operation before it can be regarded as a sanitary landfill. One is full or partial hydrogeological isolation; second is that the formal engineering preparations must be adapted on designs that should be developed from local geological and hydrogeological investigations; third, it should have trained staff to permanently control the operation, the depositing of waste and the regular operation and maintenance; and fourth, the waste should be spread in layers and compacted.

But Jimenez said before construction of the landfill would start, roads going to the area should first be established.

“Personally, I suggest putting up a garbage disposal site at the nearby urban areas to at least save out from less travels on garbage collections.

Posted on August 3, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





CITY HALL is now gearing for the establishment of a city college that will benefit more poor families.

Mayor Vicente Emano this week issued an executive order creating an adhoc committee to prepare a feasibility study, conduct documentation and propose measures for the establishment, maintenance and operation of a city college, which will be called Pamantasan ng Cagayan de Oro.

The special committee is chaired by Councilor Adrian Barba with Councilor Alvin Calingin as the vice-chair. Members are Councilor Ian Mark Nacaya; the chair of the City College Scholarship program; City superintendent of schools; Prof Soc Anthony del Rosario, the City Administrator, City Treasurer, City Planning and Development Coordinator, representatives of the Commission on Higher Education-10, Department of Education and office of Congressman Jose Benjamin Benaldo.

The committee has been tasked to look for an appropriate school site, determine the courses offered and the scholarship program, the composition, terms of office and honoraria of the board of trustees and its powers, duties, functions and responsibilities as well as initial funding requirements.

Mayor Emano expects the report and recommendation of the adhoc committee within 60 days.

It may be recalled that it was the mayor who ordered the implementation of the City College Scholarship Program so that poor but deserving students can finish their college education. The mayor said the establishment of a city college will enable the city to accommodate more students. (LCR)

LKK Gateway-MUST overpass steel beams now installed
Posted on February 19, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





The main steel beams for the Limketkai Gateway-MUST overpass are now installed. As shown in the pictures, the contractors for the beams are tightening the huge bolts which hold the beams together.

The overpass provides direct access to the second floor of LKK Gateway as observed. Chowking will be the first store you’ll see on the right. Students from MUST and other clients coming from the opposite side need not cross the dangerous section of CM Recto Avenue towards Limketkai Complex. This is also a good protection from the sun and of course rain.



Some sidelights, the contractors are seen wearing green shirts with the text “Save Trees, Use Steel”, which is quite obvious for their product.





I assume the concrete supports shown below are for the access stairs of the overpass.





I believe in a few months time, this overpass will now be operational.

PROJECT WATCH: Other construction updates 14
Posted on May 6, 2010 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




This is part 14 with updates of previously posted other construction projects. Above is a much improved rendering of the 6-storey Sacred Heart of Jesus Montessori Commercial Center and School Building along CM Recto Avenue. First posted last March 25, 2010, it used to be just 5 storeys based on the previous perspective installed onsite.

Below is the old rendering. The new one is much better.



Delivery trucks has been transporting construction materials onsite. The old building has been demolished. I expect vertical construction to commence in a few weeks time.



Below is the Vineyard International Polytechnic College Building located at Corrales-Luna Sts., just across Cagayan de Oro Water District. I first posted this last August 19, 2009. The 5-storey school building is nearing completion. Can they they finish it before the next schoolyear begins?



And finally, the commercial building beside Polymedic Medical Plaza along Kauswagan Highway is also underway. The 2-storey building project is said to have pharmacies, eateries, coffee shops and medical supply stores. This project was first posted last December 2, 2009.

PROJECT WATCH: Paseo del Rio construction in full swing
Posted on February 21, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com




Vertical construction of the Paseo del Rio Mixed Use Complex is now in full swing.

Based on the photos, you can probably observe some delineation on the project areas as to the location of the Riviera Hotel, the Paseo Mall & Convention Center and the ZCX Exhibit Center. The hotel site is presumed to be the one enclosed by the yellow line near the river. The main columns of the hotel are now properly marked with concrete piles.







The mixed concrete and steel columns is perhaps the convention center. There wer eonly a handful of workers onsite because these were taken on a Sunday where most of the workers had a day-off.

Browse over the photos below.

Ororama, Mang Inasal to open branches at Market City
Posted on February 21, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





Ororama, the city’s homegrown chain of department store, and Mang Inasal, one of the fastest growing grilled chicken restaurants in the country are set to open their branches at Market City at the redeveloped Agora Complex.

Considering that Market City is currently operated by MegaFarm Inc., the establishment of Ororama is not a surprise. Both Ororama ang Mang Inasal are located at the eastern section of the complex sandwiching SM SaveMore’s main entrance. Ororama though occupy a much larger area covering the entire southeast corner.





Other businesses have also occupied other stalls inside Market City such as LBC, Western Union, Chooks-to-Go, among others. Lechon Manok ni Sr. Pedro is also opening a branch soon. Although, I’ve been at SaveMore, I haven’t gone inside Market City’s other stalls though. Construction of the bus and jeepney terminal is also in full swing. The perimeter around the complex is temporarily used for the terminal. Luckily for the occupants of the eastern section of Market City, this is where the buses drop-off their passengers.

CoopBank MisOr inaugurates new building
Posted on February 21, 2011 by damarre
cagayandeorodev.wordpress.com





The Cooperative Bank of Misamis Oriental recently inaugurated its new building along Antonio Luna Street across Land Bank.

I was supposed to post this last week but but somehow, too many things cropped up last week like Centrio until a blog reader reminded me about this that I posted this event just now. The building’s construction has been featured in my “OTHER CONSTRUCTION UPDATES SERIES”. With a glassy facade and metal cladding exterior, this building won’t come along unnoticed.







The new building is a living proof that the cooperative business is alive and well in this part of the country.

Another new building starts operations and soon many new buildings will change the cityscape.
