As a Kagayanon, I’ve seen its transformation. From a not so busy road, I am a witness to how it has stepped up a notch.
In this angle, what was noticeable before was merely Ororama Megacenter which is now the standing green and yellow Puregold Cagayan de Oro. The only structure that remains from the past is China Bank. Everything else is new. From the towering gold Limketkai Luxe Hotel, the orange Limketkai Gateway Tower, to the red and white Tune Hotel, all these are tangible proofs of how Lapasan has leaped from a less manic avenue to a colorful and vibrant business district.
As it continues to grow, it won’t be a surprise if this angle would present a different picture a decade from now. Clearly, Lapasan today is way too different from the way it was few years ago. And as I look to the future, I know it will never be the same again….
