Ayala wins Capitol bid,
outlines P6B dev’t plan

Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. said the Committee on Awards and Disposal of Real Properties of the province has awarded the sale and lease of 7.7 hectares of its prime properties in Bacolod City to AyalaLand, after SM Prime Holdings Inc. failed to join the announced negotiated bidding yesterday.

“This P6 billion development plan of AyalaLand for the properties adjacent to the Capitol is  historic  for the province and Negrenses. It will change the landscape of Bacolod City and Negros Occidental,” the governor said.

AyalaLand vice president Jose Emmanuel Jalandoni thanked the committee for its decision, saying his firm is very optimistic and excited about the project.moremoremore

Twenty-three out of 26 freelance commercial sex workers apprehended by the policemen from different areas in Bacolod City during a saturation drive from 10 p.m. Thursday to 1 a.m. yesterday have sexually transmitted diseases, City Police Director Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz said yesterday.
