Although no official statement has been made as to the exact location for the first Starbucks store in Cagayan de Oro City, I can assume that construction of the famous coffee shop has finally started as there is now development at the rumored location as disclosed by some construction workers onsite.
Specifically located at the former Parking A of Limketkai Center, south of McDonalds, and east of Missy Bon Bon, steel columns are now rising onsite with construction workers and materials as seen in the photos.
The area was fenced a few months ago and initial earthfilling was made. But no further activities were noted in the months that followed until lately that delivery of construction materials over the weekend preceded the actual construction. News reports state that the proponents are targetting a September opening.
I guess, in a matter of 3 months or less, Cagayanons may finally have their own Starbucks!
