Biggest Pacquiao Commercial Complex under construction now

Each time Bariles traverses through Aparente Avenue on his way downtown, he never fails to notice an ongoing construction at the corner of Block Zero at Dadiangas Heights Subdivision.  Although the area is covered by a high wall, one could manage to still see the buildings being built inside.

Just yesterday, while passing through the same route again, he noticed a billboard at the property wall with an artists’ rendition of the project once it’s finished.

He stopped his car, got out and read what’s on the billboard!

Gosh!  It’s another Jinkee and Manny Pacquiao multi-use building project!  But this time, it’s bigger!

The mixed-use development project of the Pacquiao couple consists of a COMMERCIAL BUILDING facing Aparente Street, a separate building at the back for OFFICE SPACES and adjacent to it is an APARTMENT BUILDING.  This is now Manny Pacquiao’s biggest property development project so far in GenSan.  The lot used to be occupied by the GSCIT and belonged to the Morales family way back.

For Jinkee and Manny Pacquiao’s latest investment in General Santos City, they have gotten the services of the team of Civil Engineer Ferdinand TrasmilArchitect Constancio Pongase and Project Supervisor Jose Angelito Rodriguez.  This team was also involved in the construction of the Pacquiao Gymnasium at Barangay Tambler where just recently Mommy Dionisia Pacquiao celebrated her fabulous 62nd Birthday Party.

Take note that other than this building project, Jinkee and Manny Pacquiao own two more – the much maligned JMP 1 Building along Osmena Street in downtown GenSan where their first BluGre Coffee Shop franchise is located and a few meters down Aparente Avenue, the JMP 2 Building.  Both were designed by Architect Rex Acdal.

Up next for Jinkee and Manny Pacquiao?  Hopefully, their proposed hotel along the Lagao-Bula Road at the former lot occupied by Conlu EcoPark across the SAFI Arcade where Little Dubai is.

We have to hand it over to the couple for putting much of their money in property development in General Santos City.  Aside from helping put GenSan on the map, Manny’s investment projects in the city are likewise very commendable.

    heard some “news” on the hotel/condo in bula-lagao… sana magkatotoo… we need more hotels in gensan, and this would definitely encourage tourists to visit soccsksargen…

  2. Toinks says:

    sana may seven-eleven dito.

    1. bariles says:

      @Toinks, how I wish! If there is a 7-11 here, ibig sabihin nun, 24/7 na talaga ang economic activity sa isang lugar. Yan ang basehan kasi ng 7-11. 🙂

    for whatever its worth, i really admired manny, he never forget where he came from and that includes, his business acumen, by pouring in money and investment in the city that alone, he is such a worthy model for a lot of this rich people who bring their money out to other places and invest in other country instead of their own…

    ones its done that will surely spur business in that side of the city…

  4. Toinks says:

    @bariles> Ay ganun po ba? Sayang…edi doon na lang sa may Santiago-Higway ang seven-eleven.

  5. White Knight says:

    Another great invesment from Manny & Jinkee. I have seen the place and its pretty good, it will be another major business districts once it opened along Aparente Street. I’m pretty sure most of you will be happy the Pacquiao’s would invest more of this projects since this is an income generating type.

    Franchising of a tested food business nowadays is also a good investment for booming Gensan.

  8. Shiela says:

    I was away for 2 years and when I went back to Gensan last December, I was like “Wow! Jinkee and Many are investing much in Gensan!” I hope they would also built such establishments in Sarangani Province soon.

  9. fahdingding says:

  10. fahdingding says:

  11. Greg says:

    Wow!! great development from gensan..courtesy of Pacman…pro sana unahin ng gov’t ng gensan ang airport natin..medyo hindi na maganda tingnan di pa comfortable sa mga passenger….mas maganda pa tingnan ang airport ng bacolod….AYOSIN ANG AIRPORT!

  12. mer says: way pabor pabor bati jud atong airport..unta pa ninduton..

  13. fahdingding says:

    Bati mo lang!

  14. Toinks says:

    Ansarap talagang i-firing squad ang mga lumapastangan sa paliparan natin. Walang aerobridges at walang maayos na facility…eh papano pa makakapag operate ang ang ibang airlines nyan lalo na yung mga budget airlines eh lumalabas na kanya kanya ang mga airlines kung magpaganda ng lugar nila sa airport. ang cheap tuloy tignan…parang lotto outlet.

  15. Toinks says:

    Id like to quote a certain Canadian passenger who gave her remarks to our airport during an interview with TVP Socsksargen dated Jun 7. She said the airport has a very poor service and that its not even worth comparing to any airports there is in Canada. If she is going to rate GES from 0-10, her score would be 4 (walang second thoughts na sinabi)…Nakakahiya for GenSan and SOCSKSARGEN!!! …ganito ba ang ipapamukha natin sa mundo para sa ating mithiing “Global GenSan”?

  16. mer says:

    ngano puro tagalog mga comment dri? kami rang fahdingding bisaya.. OP naman us..hehe

  17. Toinks says:

    @mer, aron masabtan sa taga lahing planeta. hahahaha ayawg ka OP wuie. LOLs

  18. Greg says:

    I think the canadian passenger is too kind to rate 4/10…hahaha…2/10 for me.
    By the way its not to late to improve our gensan airport…hope our gov’t will had an action for this.

  19. Toinks says:

    Naisip ko rin na, kung kaya baka hindi natapos ng contractor ang trabaho nito sa paliparan ay dahil inabutan na ito ng pag-upo ni P-Noy sa pangulohan. Hindi ba at si PGMA ang nagpasimuno ng 120million cosmetic improvements ng GES? At ang pagkakaalam ko ay ipina-hold lahat ni P-Noy ang mga projects ni PGMA sa buong bansa na on-going sa ngayon…lahat ay subject for audit ng COA.

    Personally I would have to say that 120million is really not enough for GES to have aerobridges. Idagdag mo pa ang lahat ng mga kakulangan sa paliparan mula sa mga kakulangan sa terminal building hanggang sa mga navigational aides nito.

    We hope to see substantial action by the government regarding this serious matter. Magandang GenSan!

    3/10 for me…
