CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – To initiate solution solve the housing backlogs of the city, Mayor Rolando “Klarex” Uy spearheaded the ground breaking of “Klarexville” housing project in Barangay San Simon, this city.

Dubbed as KlarexVille 4, Macaranas Residences, the project is a collaboration between the local government and the national government, as one of the flagship programs of President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr.

Klarexville 4 is only part of the many housing projects in the city which now reaches to Klarexville 14. The Klarexville project is envisioned to give houses to victims of calamity and for the informal settlers.

CHUDD Asst. Dept Head Cesar Pagapulaan Jr said it becomes a project of the local government so that it would be easy to implement rather than the national government to spearhead it.

Klarexville 4 is a 2.6 hectare land area and it would also benefit total of 1200 families, it was learned.

A few months ago Mayor Rolando Uy also led the groundbreaking of Klarexville I in Barangay Pagatpat.

The project, initiated by the city government of Cagayan de Oro under Uy’s administration, is certified a priority under President Marcos’ massive housing program “Pambansang Pabahay Para sa Pilipino.” This means applicants are automatically entitled under Socialized Housing Finance Corporation’s minimal amortization rates plus government equity.

With a current housing backlog of more than 40,000 units, Cagayan de Oro can sure take a breather with this development. (Klarexville I is offering 2,200 condo-type units.)

The five-level structure and its 5.48-hectare environs will be developed by Johndorf Ventures Corporation. Councilor Edgar Cabanlas, chairman of the committee on housing, is expected to ask the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD) to use their escrow to likewise fund the construction of ancillary facilities in the area such as a health center and a daycare center.

Being a priority national government project, all ground works and drainage were already laid down by DPWH. It’s a multinational effort as these were funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency and undertaken by Qingdao Municipal Construction, a company owned by the city government of Qingdao in Shandong, China.
