While the main building is 88% complete as reported, the entire development of the Cagayan de Oro City International Convention Center Complex located in Taguanao, Barangay Indahag is still 56% done as more facilities are set to be constructed including a multi-level parking building, a VIP lounge, restaurant, viewing deck and function rooms.
Here’s the full development plan of the 4.4-hectare hilltop property. As shown, the multi-level parking building is right at the back and across it is another building which will house the VIP Lounge, Function Rooms and Restaurant. The complex will be managed by the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) which will also have an office located at the far end of the complex as shown below.
The main building as designed will have a seating capacity of 7,700. The open parking space around the main building will have 45 parking slots for cars, 12 slots for PWD, 12 for buses and 75 for motorcycles. The 3-level with roof deck parking building will have additional parking slots for cars, PWDs and motorcycles. The function rooms will be located in two levels right across. The function room at the Ground Floor will have a capacity of 1,270 pax same with the Lower Ground Floor. The restaurant likewise will have a seating capacity of 220 pax.
The full plan was revealed after the recent visit of former senator Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel, Jr. together with city officials led by Mayor Oscar Moreno.
When completed, it will support various events like sports, concerts, conventions, exhibits, seminars, conferences, and trade shows.
Will the full development be finally realized? Keep posted.
