    Mactan Island is blessed with many gifts for people meant to live, work, play, and learn in one cosmopolitan district. Thus, to reside in this part of Cebu would be a great opportunity to explore other exciting possibilities because this island is home to the country’s first mixed-use development – THE MACTAN NEWTOWN.

    Megaworld, the country’s leading real estate developer and pioneer of “live-work-play-learn” township concept in the Philippines, is developing the 28.8-hectare township as an innovative blueprint for urban community in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu where everything is just within easy reach.

    Just recently, Megaworld announced that the investment for THE MACTAN NEWTOWN had increased to P30-billion to develop the township in the next five to seven years.

    The additional investment is to bring more components within the township, – with Megaworld recently acquiring an area fronting the famous Mactan Shrine and the development of the 11-hectare Portofino Beach – in partnership with Landmark, Inc., the landowner of the former beach resort.

    “This is the most exciting time for THE MACTAN NEWTOWN. With the new beach area and around Mactan Shrine up for development, we are spicing up our pioneering “LIVE-WORK-PLAY-LEARN” lifestyle concept in Central Visayas,” says Noli D. Hernandez, president, Megaworld Cebu Properties, Inc.

    Since the township will have its own beach, THE MACTAN NEWTOWN is also expected to build five hotels which include two beachfront hotels that overlook the Hilutungan Channel. The company is also building its own exclusive, world-class beach club at the township’s beachfront, and sports facilities that will promote active lifestyle by the beach.

    Living In The Township

    Boasting a redefined living experience in a township masterpiece, Megaworld also brings condominium living to a whole new level with the spectacular views of the historic Mactan Shrine, Magellan Bay, and the Hilutungan Channel.

    Currently, THE MACTAN NEWTOWN has 10 luxury condominium towers in the pipeline: four towers for 8 Newtown Boulevard, which is expected to be completed by first half of 2015; three towers for One Pacific Residence; and three towers for One Manchester Place. For the cyberpark, Megaworld is fast tracking the construction of its state-of-the-art office towers and the township. The township’s first office tower, One World Center, is now fully leased by two international Information Technology-Business Process Outsourcing (IT-BPO) companies – US-based Enfra USA and Results Manila.

    On the other hand, Two World Center has been topped off recently and is expected to open for operations this June.

    Also, soon to rise at THE MACTAN NEWTOWN is a school that will be supervised by the Lasallian Schools Supervision Office (LASSO). Covering an area of 7,000 sqm, The Newtown School of Excellence will be a multi-level building with state-of-the- art facilities such as laboratories, audio visual room, library, open and covered courts and other educational facilities. It is set to open its school year on 2016-2017, initially for the primary level.

    Other projects underway in THE MACTAN NEWTOWN include hotels, a mall, retail and commercial strips, and leisure facilities.

    THE MACTAN NEWTOWN is Megaworld’s first masterplanned mixed-use development in Central Visayas inspired by the company’s pioneering ‘live-work-play’ concept. The company has been known for its successful township developments in Metro Manila such as Eastwood City, McKinley Hill, Forbes Town Center and Newport City. In the Visayas, the real estate giant is also building Region 6’s biggest business district, the P35-billion Iloilo Business Park located at the site of the Old Iloilo Airport in Mandurriao, Iloilo City.

    Take a glimpse of the The Mactan Newtown lifestyle at the Megaworld Showroom located at the ground floor of Zenith Central Building, Luzon Avenue, Cebu Business Park, Cebu City (beside Maybank).
