The development will center around a green park covering some 5,000 square meters. Sotera is set to operate by 2019.

Present during the groundbreaking were SDG chairman Mel Agudo, Oriental Mindoro governor Alfonso Umali Jr., House representative Reynaldo Umali, and Calapan City mayor Arnan Panaligan.

“By investing in Mindoro’s brightest gold — its people — SDG dedicates this park to every aspiring Mindoreno towards building a future-ready Mindoro,” Agudo said.

Agudo said the project is a culmination of two years of planning to create a development which will serve as an anchor for job creation, innovative education programs, and neighborhood activities for the residents of Calapan City and the entire Oriental Mindoro province.

He said the project will host new office and commercial space that will cater to technology-driven industries such as the IT-BPM industry, related education initiatives, and ICT-enabled businesses.

Last year, the local governments of Calapan and Oriental Mindoro showed their support to the creation of a province-wide ICT council to serve as a platform for collaboration for industry, academe, and government.
