Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro, November 6, 2017– A big local developer in Calapan, Oriental Mindoro, Sotera Development Group (SDG) broke ground recently to mark the start of the construction for Sotera San Antonio at Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro last October 18, 2017.
The Development will center around a green park covering some 5,000 square meters. Leading the groundbreaking was Chairman Mel Agudo with Governor Alfonso Umali, Jr. with Cong. Reynaldo Umali and Mayor Arnan Panaligan in attendance, with representatives from academe, DOST, DTI, NEDA, and the community.

“…By investing in Mindoro’s Brightest Gold, its People. SDG dedicates this park to every aspiring Mindoreno towards building a Future-Ready Mindoro.” Chairman Agudo said. “The Bayanihan spirit of cooperation is a must for us all to succeed for greater heights…Together let us open the eyes of the world to Mindoro and Mindoro to golden opportunities”
This project represents a unique venture and 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.
Recognizing the need to address the significant challenges of Oriental Mindoro, cradling the gem of the park, Sotera President Agudo said the project will host new office and commercial space that will cater to, but not limited to the incubation of new technology-driven industries such as the IT-BPM industry, related education initiatives, and ICT enabled businesses. SDG is known for its visionary investments in the field of technology and real estate development. Sotera is set to operate by 2019.
Last year, the local governments of Calapan and Oriental Mindoro showed their full support to the creation of a province-wide ICT council to serve as a platform for collaboration for industry, academe and government. Agudo is thankful for this initiative and assures his full support to the direction of the council, especially the vision of making Oriental Mindoro a destination of choice for ICT industries.
