At the time our informant visited the site, he was advised by the contractors on site that the ground works currently on going is for the upcoming Sheraton Hotel in Davao. The rendering is now being displayed – a grand 12 storey hotel with a facade and layout similar to other Sheraton Hotels found in other countries. The site is located a stone throw away from the upcoming SM Lanang in Davao City – a second SM mall in the city, situated within the former Lanang Golf and Country Club.
The site of the “Sheraton Hotel Davao” is also few minutes away from Abreeza – the first and largest Ayala Center of Ayala Land in Mindanao. If indeed the soon to be constructed building is a Sheraton Hotel Davao, the site is really appropriate and strategic for such project. Not that tall at 12 storeys only but it will surely reshape the skyline of the northern part of this city.
Aside from Sheraton Hotel Davao, a number of smaller hotels and inns are also being constructed in the downtown area and southern part of the city lately. Such constructions and developments further strengthen the city’s capability of being Southern Philippines’ convention capital and business hub.
