If you have been a frequent traveller along the GenSan National Highway near the East Asia Royale Hotel for the past two months, you must have noticed this conspicuous presence of an establishment which is undergoing frenzied construction right beside the 18th Hole Driving Range entrance alley.
The two-story building, now almost nearing completion sits in a half-hectare lot beside the Mabuhay I.T. Park at the back end. Reportedly owned by a consortium led by Mitchy’s Car Accessories, Davao City’s Chimes and Davao Golden Hardware, among others, the edifice will house various dining establishments meant to cater to the AB market of Soccsksargen.
One is them is reportedly Cafee Firenzo, a Davao-based coffee shop which also has two branches in the Durian City and a branch in Tagum City. Read Davao blogger Blogie Robillo‘s take on the place by CLICKING HERE. Blogalag’s blog post can be accessed by CLICKING HERE.
Other occupants of the 1480 square meter available space of the building include fine-dining restaurants to be put up by more investors from Davao.
Only one existing local GenSan restaurant will be joining them, having passed the standards and requirements of the building owners. This distinction goes to “Gusteau’s Shrimps and Crabs“, which GenSan News Online Mag featured last year. The resto is one of the many along the famous dining strip in Lagao -Tiongson Arcade. Take a bow, owner Allan Lopez.
Although we still have no idea on the identities of the other establishments in this new GenSan restaurant complex which, according to Bariles’ source, will be unveiled on April 2010, Bariles is hoping that it would include a Thai Restaurant, an authentic Japanese restaurant, a Mediterranean restaurant, a purely seafood restaurant (to cater to non-pork eaters) and a resto-bar with a nightly band.
[…] A few months months back, Bariles wrote about a frenzied construction activity going on at the National Highway, General Santos, right beside the entrance leading to the 18th Hole Driving Range in a blog post which you can check out by CLICKING HERE. […]

Medyo maliit yung structure sana pinalaki or pinataas nila into 3 – 4 storeys! why kaya puro 2 stories at most structures dito GENSAN?

Ahhh, Cafee Firenzo pala to… akala ko talaga ito na yung IT Park.
Sa National Highway din ba Kuya AVel ang 2nd branch ng Asia United Bank? At least may Banko na sa National Highway (METROBANK)…
Plus, meron ng New ECA Buildings, Mabuhay IT Park, Chowking, This “Mysterious Building”, 2 traffic light systems in 2 junctions of the Highway…
