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.
