Where History, Culture and Modernity Converge
The boom of the Philippine economy is not merely concentrated in the country’s capital, Metro Manila. Recent figures show that the Philippines has seen excellent regional growth from all three of its principal geographic island groups: Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Cebu – a prime city of the Visayas – in particular, is a major contributor to this phenomenon.
Recognizing the vast development potential of the Queen City of the South, Megaworld Corporation set its sights on Mactan, Cebu for its newest premier township development.
Megaworld is the country’s premier residential condominium developer and BPO office space provider and landlord. With its portfolio of more than 305 completed projects, Megaworld is at the forefront of the Philippine real estate industry. The company is revolutionizing property development with its township projects, transforming the metropolitan landscapes in both Manila and Cebu.
The company’s pioneering “LIVE-WORK-PLAY-LEARN” development concept, as showcased in the country’s first township, Eastwood City, has proven to be a successful formula. This has been replicated in Megaworld’s townships of Newport City, home to Resorts World Manila in Pasay; at Forbes Town Center and Uptown Bonifacio in Bonifacio Global City; and at McKinley Hill in Fort Bonifacio, Metro Manila’s newest central business district.
Cebu will soon experience the world-class community lifestyle offered by Megaworld’s winning township concept – but on a grander scale. Megaworld Cebu Properties Inc., a subsidiary of Megaworld, is pioneering the development of township communities in Cebu through its exceptional new lifestyle offering: The Mactan Newtown.
The Mactan Newtown is a complete 28.8-hectare community with live, work, play, and learn components. Already in the works are three residential condominium clusters spanning 10 towers, more than three office buildings, a reputable academic institution, a commercial center and also a luxury resort. The township is well into the development phase, with the turnover of the first office building slated by year end.
Discover the perfect combination of island and city living, where history, culture and modernity converge.
The township is strategically located some 15 minutes away from the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, ensuring utmost convenience for both local and international tourists and investors. It is adjacent to the Mactan Shrine, a monument built over the area where the Battle of Mactan was fought centuries earlier. Offering more than just convenience and cultural and historical significance, The Mactan Newtown is also 45 minutes away from Cebu City, the second most important metropolis in the country. At The Mactan Newtown, people will enjoy both the laid-back resort-style surroundings as well as the allure of being in the fastest growing and most business-friendly economic center in the Philippines. The site of the foundation of the nation, the biggest festivals of the year, and the home of the best “lechon” in the country, Cebu is, without a doubt, the heart of the Philippines. Megaworld could not have chosen a better location for its latest township development, which is the perfect combination between island and city living, where history, culture and modernity converge.
The developments of Megaworld adhere to international standards and push forward the boundaries of what is locally available. With the inspiration of modern cosmopolitan living, Megaworld has tailored its Mactan township to suit the lifestyles of young professionals, growing families and local and foreign retirees alike.
The Mactan Newtown’s superior location and design elements, coupled with its complete and holistic lifestyle concept, make for smart investments with assured value appreciation. It will perfect resort-style living in the heart of the Philippines. Not only will this be the first township community in the Visayas, it will be the first of its kind in the entire country with the incorporation of its tourism offerings.
