Twenty years ago, Uptown Cagayan de Oro was a grassland where cattle’s roam around the area. Today, it has transformed into a booming area with various establishments and it’s central business district, the former CDO ranch of Mayor Oloy Roa – Pueblo de Oro Business Park.
Located in Pueblo de Oro Business Park are luxury car distributors BMW and Peugeot as well as SM City Mall CDO, one of its pioneer locators. Concentrix Call Center is also located in the area, fronting Primavera Residences. Pueblo de Oro Business Park is a PEZA accredited zone which means business establishing in the area are exempted from tax for several years.
Also located in the Uptown Area are government offices such as DILG, DSDW and DepEd. Schools are also present such as Xavier University, Corpus Christi and Rosevale. Apart from the businesses, offices and schools established in the area, people have also preferred to live in Uptown Cagayan de Oro due to its high-class residential establishments such as Xavier Estates, Pueblo de Oro Township and the first ever sustainable condominium in the city – Primavera Residences.
More developments are coming in the area in the next years. Hospital, bank offices, diversion roads, convention center and sports complex will be present very soon. The most exciting among them is the rise of a new groundbreaking project developed by Italpinas Development Corporation. Primavera City, an integrate seven-tower building for commercial, office, residential and hotel. It’s first phase, the first two towers, will ground break this coming June 24, 2016. The building is set to be located before SM City Mall.
