Valenzuela begins construction of vertical housing project
Valenzuela has started its construction of its vertical housing project in Barangay Veinte Reales, and Mayor Rex Gatchalian said this should put to rest claims that the city was not properly taking care of its people’s housing needs.
The groundbreaking and capsule laying ceremony for the housing project was held on Friday.
Gatchalian shared photos from the event on Facebook.
“Ang araw na eto ay araw ng Resibo. Wala bang pabahay kamo??? Hahayaan ko na lang ang mga litrato sumagot,” he said.
He noted that the housing project had been the target of negative comments made in the name of politicking.
But he said the construction of the project has begun.
“By December, 11 buildings na ng Phase 1 ang matatapos,” he said.
The people who will live in the area would be its beneficiaries as they would own the land and the property, not city hall which would just serve as estate manager, he said.
The units in the area would come in two sizes which would depend on the financial capability of the family.
Those who could not afford the units would be transferred to the Disiplina Village, he said.
