EL SALVADOR CITY BAYFRONT ESPLANADE, a proposed coastal boulevard development on a 26-hectare reclaimed land will be one of the major projects in El Salvador City as it positions itself in Metro Cagayan de Oro in 2025. This was revealed by City Mayor Edgar S. Lignes during yesterday’s virtual 14th Charter Day celebration.
During his State of the City Address, Mayor Lignes said he has already started the groundwork securing the necessary clearances and permits for the proposed reclamation.
As presented by Mayor Lignes, the proposed reclamation will be from Bolo-bolo Bridge towards Asia Brewery Inc. and the new coastline will now be 100 meters from the centerline of the National Highway. See below.
Part of the development is the establishment of a marina where yachts can dock. The building at the foreground will be that of the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA). See below.
The coastal boulevard will be lined up with high rise condominium development which Mayor Lignes said will be a spillover from Cagayan de Oro due to CDO’s congestion.
It will also have a park, jogging and biking area.
The seaside boulevard will be similar to Roxas Boulevard in Manila.
Mayor Lignes said El Salvador City’s potential is inevitable as it is the first city of Metro Cagayan de Oro if you’re coming from Laguindingan Airport. Here’s a sample perspective of an intersection at the bayfront development.
Mayor Lignes said this is the proposed plan and hopes the next leaders of the city will implement this.
