Updates of previously posted projects…now on its 26th of a series. First is the nearing completion of the diagnostics building along Burgos-Chavez Streets near City Hall. My previous update of this project was last October 22, 2010.
As shown in the pictures, the architect has used blue glass panels, yellow and white metal claddings and some brown wood-like exteriors for the building. Perhaps, some tenants will be opening business in January 2011.
My next project is that of Casa Azucena’s expansion. My previous update was last January 6, 2010 or nearly a year already. Located inside Marfori Compound in between Corrales Avenue and Pabayo Streets, the new building being constructed beside Casa Azucena was just a small apartment-like structure. But now, you can see the big difference as it has become clearly evident that the expansion project took some changes midway through construction. First, the small building at the corner shown below (first photo was taken January 2010) was acquired and demolished. Then, the proponent increased the number of floors. Just browse over the pictures and and see the changes made. Again, more rooms will be available when completed.
Just across Casa Azucena is the building currently being renovated by Montecarlo Realty. My previous update was last August 10, 2010. Unlike my last update, the following photos were taken at the back of the building. Montecarlo Realty is the real estate arm of UKC Builders and they’re currently completing the additional floor or the roof deck of the building shown below. They’ve also cleared the site maybe for parking purposes. The clearing included the site of the former Balyahay Garden Café (which has transferred to a new site near CAP Bldg.-also under construction).
The Earlsbridge is also nearing completion. My previous update was last October 1, 2010. Just see the difference as glass panels are already in place. Located along the intersection of Tomas Saco Street and Rodelsa Road, deadline of bids for space rentals was last December 17 as shown in the tarpaulin below (as what I’ve perceived to be). I guess the building has many bids already.
Another project nearing completion is this 3-storey commercial building along RN Abejuela Street just across Magsaysay Park in Divisoria. My previous update was also last October 1, 2010.
The Cooperative Bank of Misamis Oriental along Antonio Luna Street (across Land Bank) is also expected to have occupancy early next year. My previous update was last July 8, 2010. The coop’s chairman (Hon. Isidro Lico) is now an elected congressman of the party-list ATING-KOOP, and this building is perhaps his legacy of his service to the cooperative business.
The TS Fashion Building along Corrales Avenue is also revealing its true colors as depicted on the perspective. Previous photo update was last October 1, 2010.
And finally, the 2-storey commercial building along Velez-Chavez Streets just across Brew Berry Café is now almost done. Previous photo update was also last October 1, 2010.
I’ve got more updates but I’ll reserve them next year.:) Slowly and surely, the city’s urbanscape is changing everyday.
