The Chronicles of Central Park Hotel
October 18, 2008
This is a story about a hotel in Davao City. She is a humble hotel, the first high rise building to be built within the city after Marco Polo yet she didn’t divulge anything to the people. How tall she’s gonna be? What she gonna look like? All she reveals is a covered rendering and a vacant lot for the construction site. That was late last year when she makes her presence felt at the boring street of Sta. Ana.
A week later, heavy equipments are inside the construction site. The mysterious project generates a big hype and excitement to the people of Davao. Its been a long time since we got this kind of stuff in the city.
On February 2008, the project is finally revealed to the public. It is a 12 storey hotel called “CENTRAL PARK HOTEL” and it is a project from a local investor. Amazing how a Davao based company can be able to pour investment of this magnitude. It just proves that local businessmen are also capable of competing against corporate giants outside the city.
The revelation gave dabawenyos something to wait for in the coming months. After the mystery has finally been revealed, construction went full blast. All we have to do is to wait 😉 .
