The Bacolod City government is expected to break ground for additional condominium-type housing projects under the Pambansang Pabahay sa Pilipino Housing Program (4PH) project in the middle of February.

Aside from the initial Yuhum Residences, which is underway in Barangay Vista Alegre, two other sites In barangays Banago and Estefania have been identified.

The Yuhum Residences-Banago, with an area of 3.5 hectares, is being proposed to have 13 buildings with 3,627 housing units, while in Yuhum Residences-Estefania, with 10 buildings and 1,440 units are expected to rise on a 2.4-hectare property.

The first 296 units of the Yuhum Residences-Vista Alegre in the initial four buildings are set for turnover on February 14, along with the groundbreaking for the other projects expected to be attended by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

Mayor Alfredo Abelardo Benitez said on Monday that the city government is fully supported by the national government in the implementation of the 4PH together with the Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development (DHSUD).

“We are the pioneers in this housing program. We are the first, we may be the guinea pig now, but I don’t mind. We are faster in providing housing programs to our people, which is better the way I see it,” Benitez said.

“We see the full support of the national government, I have no doubt this will be sustained,” he added.

Benitez said the city’s Yuhum Residences housing program will probably have the best amenities.

Based on the plans, these will have vast open spaces with amenities like a park, large swimming pool, clubhouse/multi-purpose hall, basketball court, commercial spaces, and parking lots.

“Not more than 50 percent of the area should be used for housing so it’s mostly open spaces. There should be parks for people to enjoy,” Benitez said.*PNA
