Filinvest wants concrete wall near IT Park torn down

PROPERTY developer Filinvest Land Inc. (FLI) has asked the Cebu City government to demolish a concrete wall that separates their P5 billion business process outsourcing (BPO) complex project from W. Geonzon Street and Cebu IT Park.

Tristan Las Marias, Filinvest vice president for Visayas and Mindanao, asked for the immediate demolition of what he described as “an illegal concrete fence” built by Cebu Property Ventures Dev’t Corp. (CPVDC).

“(This) illegal concrete fence built by Cebu Property Ventures Dev’t Corp. (CPVDC) (is) blocking the property of Cebu province along Geonzon Street,” Las Marias said in a July 7 letter to Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama.

Filinvest is developing the property under a joint venture with the Cebu provincial government. Las Marias said the CPVDC was already issued three notices of illegal construction by the city government.

He said the CPVDC violated Section 301 of the National Building Code which requires developers to first secure a building permit first from the Office of the Building Official (OBO).

In a statement, CPVDC questioned why they are being blamed for the delay of the project when access to W. Geonzon St. was not committed in the Terms of the Reference for the BPO center project. They said Geonzon Street will always be open to the public.
