Construction of Carmona Estates Commercial Areas Scrapped
When I spoke with PFI's Marketing Head Jane Tombokon yesterday, I also asked her about the CE Commercial Areas issue, that a number of CE residents have been complaining that the planned commercial areas would no longer be built. Area Director Nieves Santos told Jane that this plan would no longer push through.
I asked Jane about the specific reasons. She said, she and Nieves were not able to talk about it extensively as they (with other PFI officers) were having a meeting at the time. Jane said she would update me soon.
From what I can deduce from our conversation is that the plan was scrapped because the expansion of Carmona Estates beyond phase 9 would no longer materialize. Maybe PFI would only construct a Commercial Area if a PFI estate meets a certain number of units. There was supposedly an expansion at the back of Cedar Village, Sta Rosa side. This would supposedly hold the model units whose construction have been stopped. Unlike in Lancaster Estates, PFI has been assured of a bigger property which holds that different villages of Lancaster Estates, thus a commercial area is assured. A school is even part of its amenities.
