Pueblo de Oro Development Corporation is one of the leading real estate developers in the region. The company is a part of the ICCP Group, a collection of companies that are mainly involved in several types of business fields, including property development and services, direct investments and investment banking. This group of companies is a product of a joint venture between the Beacon Property Ventures Inc, or the BPVI, and the Regatta Properties Inc or RPI.
The Beacon Property Ventures Inc specializes in equity investments mostly in selected property development projects. The BPVI’s major shareholders include the Bank of the Philippine Islands, Circuits Inc and Bacnotan Consolidated among many others. The Regatta Properties Inc, on the other hand, is a subsidiary of the SPPI or the Science Pak of the Philippines Inc. SPPI is a well known developer of several industrial estates, including the Light Industry and Science Park of the Philippines and the LISP II, LISP III, the Cebu Light Industrial Park, as well as the Cebu and Hermosa Ecozone.
As for the Pueblo de Oro Development Corporation, it is best known for providing the city of Cagayan de Oro a nice and comfortable community for its locals through the 360-hectare Pueblo de Oro Township project.
The intricately planned project was started way back in 1995. Located in one of the city’s highest points, the township highly complements Cagayan de Oro City’s position as Northern Mindanao region’s center of finance, industry, and commerce.
Roughly 13 years later, the Pueblo de Oro Development Corporation has managed to come up with another residential village that would better suit the mid-income bracket of the city’s developing market; Hillsborough Pointe.
Hillsborough Pointe is particularly designed to give residents that much coveted comfortable countryside feel. This all new township is situated right behind the Xavier University high school, also near the Lumbia airport, as well as a few of the city’s progressive ICT parks.
In order to maximize the entire land area’s living capacity, Hillsborough Pointe features several medium sized houses with land areas that range from 180 sq miles to 150 sq miles. The subdivision also features quite a few ridge lots that provide residents with a nice view of the Macajalar Bay and the Calaanan Valley. The sparkling coastline of the Macajalar Bay, which is partly obscured by the towering Calaanan Valley, offers a breathtaking view of both the sunset and the sunrise, thus completing the subdivision’s countryside feel. Other regions of the village also provide residents with a clear view of thee golf courses, perfect for the non-morning persons and the extroverts.
Although the subdivision’s design is intricately planned to emulate an English countryside feel, it also possesses several modern amenities that meets the resident’s urban life needs. Inside the subdivision, you can find a swimming pool that is perfect for the city’s tropical weather and a clubhouse where people and visitors can get refreshments and enjoy a sumptuous meal during hectic days, and even during lazy weekends. The subdivision also has certain facilities that enable residents to engage in healthy and fun physical activities, such as a basketball court, a tennis court, as well as a children’s playground. In terms of security and everyday life convenience, the subdivision is designed to have certain provisions for both water and power and is equipped with 24/7 security. The subdivision has a complete set of surveillance cameras along with a K9 patrol and its own fire station and fire tuck.
The Hillsborough Pointe project is one of Cagayan de Oro’s leading residential and mixed-use property developments. Its location was strategically planned by its developers in order to place it at the center of Cagayan de Oro City’s major site for industrial and business growth and development. The subdivision is located about 6 kilometers away from the Lumbia airport and about 5 kilometers away from the city proper.
The concept for the subdivision was brought together by one of the leading companies in the field, Louis Berger International Inc, or LBII. This company is known worldwide for its expertise in urban and regional planning. In addition to the Hillsborough Pointe Subdivision, LBII is also known for preparing the master plans for various other urban landscapes in the Philippines. The company is behind the master plans for the Cagayan de Oro-Iligan Corridor, as well as for the SOCSCARGEN growth area.
