Consolidation of contracts for Baguio Center Mall planned
by PIO release

The city council is inclined to recommend the consolidation of all existing contracts entered by the city government with Jarco Realty and Development Corporation for the lease of a city-owned lot that was developed to host the Baguio Center Mall.

Councilor Faustino A. Olowan, chair of the city council committee on laws, raised the recommendation after receiving an endorsement from the City Mayor’s Office for the confirmation of a supplemental agreement between the city and Jarco for the inclusion of three vacant lots in the area that will be developed by the company for 15 years.

Juanito Teope of Jarco said the area covered by the supplemental agreement was supposed to be part of the area the company had leased, but the same did not push through because the lots, having a total area of 666 square meters, was a subject of a long standing case just recently resolved by the court in favor of the city.

He added that the company proposes to build a structure in the supplemental area for lease to vendors whose original contracts with the city government are  set to expire.

Some councilors, however, raised the issue on the street taken by the company and on which it introduced developments, which led to its closure. They argued that it is only the city that is empowered to close streets.

Teope claimed that such street never existed as a street, as certified by the City Engineering Office, which is why improvements in the area were legitimate from the start.

The council members deferred action on the proposed supplemental agreement to await the recommendation of the committee on laws.

Teope informed the council that Jarco’s original contract with the government will expire after 15 years and that the company is still interested to pursue the development of these lots.

He said the city government was not able to completely deliver to the developer the total area that it was supposed to convert into a mall because of alleged encroachments on the government property by neighboring private lot owners that have not yet been settled.
