Imagine owning a Property by the beach or shopping in a sprawling, state-of-the-art mall by the beach. Or better yet, taking a stroll on the beach after work.
The Mactan Newtown in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu, will turn such fantasy into reality.
Megaworld is investing as much as P30 billion to develop the 28.8 hectare The Mactan Newtown in the next five to seven years. The property will house five hotels, a three-level shopping mall, a cyberpark, a school, 10 luxury condominiums, sports facilities and office towers for business process outsourcing (BPO).
Part of the development is the beachfront property where Portofino Beach Resort used to sit. Megaworld has partnered with Landmark, Inc. to develop the 11-hectare Portofino Beach Resort which then paved the way for more exciting developments inside The Mactan Newtown. Soon to rise will be two beachfront hotels in the area that boasts relaxing views of the Hilutungan Channel and Olango Island, known for its bird sanctuaries and mangrove forests. Another luxury hotel of international brand is also expected to rise in the township.
The Mactan Newtown will have their own exclusive, world-class beach club at the township’s beachfront, and sports facilities that will promote the vibrant and active island lifestyle.
“The beach vibe of Mactan Newtown will definitely make the township stand out among other mixed-use developments in Cebu,” says Hernandez. “We envision this township to be the next big thing to happen in Central Visayas.”
Given Newtown’s beachfront advantage, Megaworld is spicing up its pioneering “live-work-play-learn” concept with “live-work-play-learn and beach” lifestyle for township residents, workers in the office towers, retail partners and customers, as well as students and academic personnel.
Home by the Beach
Living in a township makes life easy; everything is within reach. One doesn’t have to leave the place to work and play, thus, saving energy and carbon footprint.
Saving energy is just one of the many interesting green features of living in Mactan Newtown. It’s also a perfect way to declog traffic in busy Cebu City.
“That’s the perfect expression of luxury —not having to travel one or two hours of your life on the road. It’s a privilege to not be late for work,” says Hernandez.
In Mactan Newtown, about 248 carabao mango trees line the Main Boulevard—following the concept of Megaworld chair Andrew Tan in his bid to promote environmentalism.
Mactan Newtown has 10 luxury condominium towers in the pipeline: four towers for 8 Newtown Boulevard expected to be completed by the first half of 2015; three towers for One Pacific Residence; and three towers for One Manchester Place.
The Japanese-inspired 8 Newtown Boulevard will feature a wellness center and an infinity pool longer than an Olympic-size one, overlooking Magellan Bay. It will have a bonsai garden and an activity place for ikebana and origami sessions.
One Pacific Residence will showcase the active lifestyle. It will have a tennis court, a playground for kids, a promenade with water features and lounges for adults, a five-story rock-climbing wall facility, lap pool, aqua gym pool, spa and culinary station.
One Manchester Place will be for family-oriented activities. It will have a swimming pool with cabanas, play area for kids, daycare and business centers, and a game room. This tower will be near the beach.
Work by the Beach
The Cebu township already has two office towers (one housing the BPO One World Center) and will have at least five more by 2020.
By 2016, Megaworld will open the Newtown School of Excellence, an educational institution to be supervised by the Lasallian Schools Supervision Office, initially with primary level.
Among the first hotels to rise will be the Mactan Belmont Luxury Hotel and Savoy Hotel Mactan Newtown, both to be managed by Prestige Hotels and Resorts Inc. Prestige manages Richmonde hotels in Manila.
“The hotels are local brands offering 500 rooms each,” says Carmen Fernando, managing director of Richmonde.“These will provide travelers a good stay in a township.”
Also to be constructed are two beachfront hotels and a luxury hotel with international brand. Megaworld will also build its own exclusive beach club and sports facilities for wake boarding.
“One of the main objectives of our townships in Central Visayas is to make this a destination not just for the locals but also for foreign visitors who love coming to
” Live immersed in Opportunity and excitement. WORK among the best. PLAY at a pace that’s all your own.”
