Cagayan de Oro City … is a city in bloom, blossom and boom!

Posted on


Cagayan de Oro is a goldmine for those in search of new tourist and investment destination. It has a reservoir of advantages over other cities in the country . Why? It has no typhoons all year round, rich agricultural environments, a broad consumer and manpower base, cheap and abundant power, strategically located international seaports, modern telecommunication facilities, adequate infrastructure and a highly efficient educational system.As of this writing there are various construction projects that are on-going in the city as follows :

The Paseo del Rio Business complex which includes a 21 F Hotel (Reviera Genesis) and Convention Center . I guess this is an investment of the Pelaez Group of Companies, the owner of Liceo de Cagayan Univesity.

The high-rise Limketkai Hotel has already started beside the existing Gateway Twin Tower. According to my ex-office mate who now supervises one of the scope of works of the construction , the main tower will have a 33-storey and the second tower will have a 18 –storey floors.

The construction of the biggest mall in Mindanao costing at least P4.5 billion has already started . If Quezon City have their Trinoma… we have now the Ayala Mall called “ Centrio” . Why Centrio? Because it is located in the city’s bustling business district along C.M. Recto national highway this year.

Other projects to start are the construction of Mindanao University of Science and Technology Gymnasium, The KITROL Holdings Inc. P200-million worth fuel storage facility inside the Phividec Industrial Authority area , Ateneo de Cagayan Magix Complex, Construction of the Mindanao Control Center of the National Grid Corporation of the Phils. (NGCP) and many more.

Being a civil engineer, I am very excited to see all these projects completed. I believe, they have the best contractors to do the job and the best materials to use for the project like Mixing Valves, Ball Valves and PEX Valves for their plumbing, heating and sanitary scope of works.

  1. WTF! The last picture is that of the proposed NCCC Mall Lanang in Davao City! Whoever stole that picture should be sued for theft!

    Biggest mall in Mindanao? Please check your facts before posting silly write-ups. Abreeza in Davao is bigger than Centrio in Cagayan. Yet Abreeza is NOT even the biggest mall in Davao. So where does that put your Centrio? Again, check your facts. Very typical of Cagayanons to exaggerate just to sound good. How cheap.

  2. @ Anonymous, REALLY?
    So i think it is better to change this post and some details. HONESTY IS THE BEST POLICY…

  3. This is good! Cagayan de Oro City is slowly making a name in the history of the Philippines. This town is really fine and very interesting. Thanks for the information!

  4. Anonymous, ayaw na sigeg lama2x! Kung wrong ang info o dili, wala nakay mabuhat kay ongoing na ang construction sa Ayala diri. Ikaw kaha ang cheap kay nag apil2x ka sa blog na dili related sa inyong City. We don't need your comments. Whatever you say, our love & loyalty for our city will remain. Hayag ang future sa CDO. Visit our city for you to see that we are indeed booming! Buang jud siguro ka kung nagthink ka na ang Davao ra ang pinakagwapo na city. Daghan pa cities sa Mindanao na mas gwapo pa sa Davao.

  5. I am really proud of my homeland. It can now stand with other big cities of the Philippines namely Manila, Cebu and Davao. Go go go Cagayan de Oro. For bloom, blossom and boom!

  6. WTF! The last picture is that of the proposed NCCC Mall Lanang in Davao City! Whoever stole that picture should be sued for theft!

    >Na hala bai, mao man kaha, cge padayon sa imo gibati. Amo na ibalato na nga tag sa imo kay mura man kag nahangol. Ok nasayup mi pero ayaw pamalikas nga murag ikamatay nimo ni nga statement. We are not bothered by any superlative since we are used to playing second fiddle to Davao. But the time has come when we have increasingly played things competitively such that we can now step out of your shadows. We relish every inch of development diri sa CDO, busa ayaw pangompara. Layo pa mi ninyo pero ayaw lang kumpyansa…

  7. ANONYMOUS: how SILLY! please try to search in the google to find the FACT. I don’t even know that ABREEZA MALL?! are you joking? as of now, it’s LIMKETKAI MALL, biggest in Mindanao 🙂 please be ashame you pathetic!
