Before the development of Pueblo de Oro, Gran Europa and Xavier Estates, there was only Searsolin-Manresa and a long drive to Lumbia Airport in the so-called uptown area in Cagayan de Oro City.
Decades have passed and urban development have now spread in this plateau that was once a vast grazing area. After the Sendong tragedy, many have relocated in the uptown area significantly increasing the residential demand. As flat lands have started to become scarce due to sprouting of horizontal subdivisions in the uptown, vertical developments have also began. Check out this screengrab of a condo development at Pueblo de Oro with a view of the downtown area.
