Developments are rising in Cagayan de Oro and more investors are eyeing the uptown district. At the same time, the city government has improved road networks in Uptown to support the coming businesses in the area.

Uptown Cagayan de Oro has been a favorite spot for home buyers. Apart from its booming businesses and flood-free location, the district has a well-developed community with basic locators such as shopping areas, schools and offices, located within a short reach. This is the reason why a young company, Italpinas Development Corporation, saw the place's potential for their first flagship project, Primavera Residences and later Primavera City. Both projects are strategically located right at the Uptown Cagayan de Oro business hub.

"Uptown Cagayan de Oro is scenic and beautiful because of its large trees and nice mountain landscapes. And what makes it more appealing than other places in Cagayan de Oro is that it is also urbanized-malls, schools, offices within a short distance from each other. We thought that this could be a very perfect venue for people who wanted comfortable living, "said Romolo Nati, Chairman and CEO of IDC.

IDC, after Primavera Residences, followed up with Primavera City, soon to be the landmark and modern face of Uptown Cagayan de Oro. "With other investors, IDC is happy to be serving this area (Uptown). We are looking forward to the next phase of Uptown Cagayan de Oro and it's just a matter of few years for that to happen, "exclaimed Nati. (Published also in Mindanao Daily News). by Kim N.
