In a span of seven years, who would have thought two big malls will forever change the urban cityscape of CM Recto Avenue in Cagayan de Oro City?
First photo shows the section near Gaisano City Mall. On the left is the Anflo Showroom and Floirendo lot which is now Centrio Mall. There was no pedestrian overpass yet between the two malls.
Second photo shows then landmark Coca-Cola Bottling Plant. The plant has since relocated to a much bigger facility in Villanueva town and the area is now SM CDO Downtown Premier.
These photos were taken in 2010. Wonder how CM Recto will look like in 2024….
