General Santos is surely undergoing a hotel boom these days with the opening of new ones this year and the ongoing construction of a few more in various parts of the city.

One of the bigger hotel establishments in progress is being built across the SM City GenSan lot and is right behind the STI Campus.  Its name:  GenSan GreenLeaf Hotel.

Check out the small billboard below announcing its being granted an Environmental Compliance Certificate from the DENR.

Set to open in 2013, GenSan GreenLeaf Hotel which is reportedly worth P145million has already applied for incentives with the GenSan Investment Board.  It will have more than 120 well-appointed rooms to cater to the growing needs of GenSan’s transients and visitors.

Owned by the Teng Family of Kimball Plaza fame, GenSan GreenLeaf Hotel might just well become one of the choice hotels in the city considering its prime location along San Miguel Street in front of SM City GenSan.

Hopefully, in due time, with more hotels coming up in the next few years, General Santos City could now afford to host conventions with more than 1,500 delegates.

Mark my word!  🙂
