The Mactan Newtown is a master-planned 30-hectare township of a one-stop destination of your live-work-play-learn by the beach lifestyle that’s changing the face of the Visayas and Mindanao. Conceptualized by the leading township developer and BPO offices landlord, Megaworld Corporation.
The first major township development project outside Metro Manila, The Mactan Newtown marks Megaworld’s expansion in the direction of provincial real estate development, making the company not only a game-changer in the nation’s capital, but also in the country’s lush, developing provinces. The 30-hectare mega-community was declared a special economic zone by PEZA, one of three Megaworld communities to be declared as such by the government and notably the first of the two Megaworld developments outside Metro Manila to be given the special economic zone status. Its closeness to the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, known to be the second largest international airport in the country, has made it a prime destination for businessmen, BPO executive, and frequent travelers, something familiar to Megaworld, having previously developed the largely successful Newport City across Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
That being said, it is no surprise that The Mactan Newtown is already expected to become Cebu’s next IT-business hub in the next three to five years. The development, which has allocated 150, 000 square meters for BPO offices, is already home to companies such as Results Manila and EnfraUSA, which specializes as BPO locators. These BPO offices are spread out among the development’s many BPO office buildings, such as the completed One World Center, a five-storey building with over 6,000 square meters of office space, and the Manulife Tower, which in turn will contain 7, 000 square meters of office space. Aside from the aforementioned BPO buildings, The Mactan Newtown also boasts 8 Newtown Boulevard, Pacific World Tower, and Tower 1 Plaza Magellan as developments primed for occupancy by BPO companies. These buildings comprise the development’s aptly-named cyber park.
It goes without saying that the development of the Mactan Newtown also integrates into its plan Megaworld’s well-known concept of “live-work-play-learn,” and has launched various projects in order to ensure this. Recently, Megaworld launched new condominium cluster in the community called One Manchester Place, whose three towers prides itself with various leisure amenities from a swimming pool with a sun bathing deck to a function room , among others. A new learning center is also in the works and joint venture with the Lasallian Schools Supervision Office (LASSO). The Newtown School of Excellence will be built over 7,000 square meter with state-of-the-art facilities such as laboratories, audio-visual rooms, open and covered courts and green spaces. It is expected to open classes for the primary level in 2017. In time, The Mactan Newtown is expected to see the rise of the world-class lifestyle mall as well as a luxury hotel.
Mactan, known for its beaches, also poses as a hot tourism destination, and The Mactan Newtown’s location puts it in between luxury resorts, such as Shangri-La Mactan and Protofino, and the Marcelo Fernan Bridge, which links Mactan to the larger island of Cebu, home to even more sights, sounds, and commercial districts.
