An info relayed to this blog led me to this on-going soil testing activity inside a vacant lot at the back of SaveMore Kauswagan.
As shown below, drilling machine used for soil testing is seen onsite. This could never be a water drilling activity since the site is in the downtown area and within the urban zone already serviced by the Cagayan de Oro Water District (COWD).
This lot has been idle for many years and is bounded by RN Pelaez Boulevard on the east, SaveMore on the south, and low density residential community on the north and west as shown below. The green box marks the ongoing site clearing by UKC as I have posted before.
The area is very feasible for a commercial-residential undertaking like apartment or condominium.
With the soil testing, a multi-level structure could be in the offing.
