Cagayan de Oro (CDO) City Council Committee on Landed Estate and Subdivision (CLES) Chairman Councilor Edgar Cabanlas (second from left) recently declared local government support for the Orchard District project of Johndorf Ventures Corporation (JVC) saying, “(CDO) Mayor Rolando A. Uy welcomes this blessing for the city, more jobs, more taxes, more opportunities for our people.” Orchard District is set to be launched within the year.
Representatives of the veteran real estate trailblazer and local government officials led by Cabanlas met last week for a comprehensive presentation of the estate’s site development plan. Designed to align plans for the 32-hectare mixed-use commercial-residential community in Upper Balulang-Lumbia with the city’s economic and development objectives, the activity included site appreciation and an executive consultation.
The consultation was attended by Legal Consultant Melanie Mae Cabanlas, representing the City Mayor’s Office, City Housing and Urban Development Department (CHUDD) Head Samuel Rollo, and Consultant Luisito Maagad, and representatives of the City Engineer’s Office, Office of the Building Official, and City Planning and Development Office.
Orchard District is an integrated 32-hectare mixed-use township development strategically located at the quiet heart of Uptown, Cagayan de Oro City. Orchard District overlooks the Cagayan River at an elevation of about 100 meters. It offers sweeping vistas of the Cagayan Mountain Ranges and is easily accessible to the residential communities in the area.
“We are looking at partnering with several locators to expedite the development of the estate. Negotiations with these locators are ongoing, and we look forward to a lifetime partnership with them”, said Miss Frances Abigail Lim, the Managing Director of JVC.
