The people from the areas covered by the St. Hannibal Homeowners Association Phases I and II were very happy and enthusiastic upon knowing the date of the Inauguration of their housing project and the groundbreaking of the BPI property on October 29, 2006 – knowing then that the main guest is no other than the President of the Republic of the Philippines, GLORIA MACAPAGAL ARROYO.

The excitement turn into pure energy when on September 18, 2006 the Social Housing Finance Corporation (SHFC) announced the coming of the Vice President of the Philippines NOLI DE CASTRO for the awarding of BPI lot to the beneficiaries on September 21, 2006.
