New High Rise Hotel For Davao Tourists
I personally like the design of the building because it is something new to the city (photo –> TJBrewed).
After more than 10 years, Davao City will be adding another tall structure to its skyline. Located at Sta. Ana avenue, Central Park Hotel will be the newest hotel in Davao City, it has 12 floors making it a high rise building and it is located right at the heart of downtown area. The building will be filling the skyline where the Marco Polo Hotel, Ateneo and Metrobank buildings are standing so its going to make that area a little denser (its going to be nice to look at on aerial view for sure). According to SSC forum, the hotel is owned by a local investor.
At present, the construction is in full blast. I happened to pass by in that area and workers are setting down the foundation for the building. Those tower cranes are pounding like crazy. You can hear the sound of the machine drilling the ground ferociously from as far as Marco Polo. Also, the small commercial building that obstructs the view of the construction and adjacent to the hotel’s site is already enclosed with fence. They will demolish that small building for sure. Good, since I ain’t liking the looks of it.
Davao City’s tourist arrival is increasing every year. Last 2007, the city was visited by approximately 50,000 foreign visitors and some 530,000 domestic travelers. The foreign visitors on same period last 2006 was only around 43,000 and that’s about 10% increase. Note that those figures are based only on the hotel occupancy report by country of residence and this includes 19 hotels, six inns, and nine pension houses. (click here for source)
