Mactan Newtown wins 2019 ‘best mixed-use’ project in VisMin region

PROPERTY giant Megaworld Development Corp. has welcomed another prestigious recognition for The Mactan Newtown after winning the “Best Mixed-Use Development for 2019 in the Visayas and Mindanao” award at The Outlook 2019: Philippine Buyers’ Choice Property Awards in November.

The company’s 30-hectare township in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu—its first outside of Metro Manila and the only one under its portfolio with its own beachfront—gained the nod of the judging panel for seamlessly blending residential, office, commercial, and retail components into a community that promotes an effective integrated lifestyle.

Organized by Lamudi, The Outlook Awards celebrates the developments that have improved the real estate sector in the country and provided property seekers with some of the most outstanding developments fit for their varying lifestyle needs.

Last year, The Mactan Newtown also received a Gold Award in the Masterplan Category at the Property and Real Estate Awards 2018 organized by the International Real Estate Federation of the Philippines (FIABCI-Philippines).

“These awards represent the kind of innovation and intricate planning that go into every Megaworld development, and we are very thankful for accolades like these. We are gearing up for more announcements for The Mactan Newtown next year, and this recognition will only continue to inspire us in bringing more well-thought out, world-class developments as additional components of our township here in Lapu-Lapu City,” said Noli Hernandez, president of Megaworld Cebu Properties Inc.

The residential properties inside The Mactan Newtown have also garnered various recognitions of their own.

The 8 Newtown Boulevard, Megaworld’s first residential development in the township, hauled three major awards back in 2016: the “Best Condo Development in Cebu” and the “Best Residential Interior Design” Award at the 2016 Philippines Property Awards, and the “Outstanding Residential High-Rise Development” award at the 2016 Property and Real Estate Excellence Awards organized by FIABCI Philippines.

Last year, One Pacific Residences, the company’s second residential development in the township, also won the “Best Premium Condo for Visayas and Mindanao” at The Outlook 2018 Awards.

The Mactan Newtown is a home to luxury residential condominium developments, high-end office towers and retail shops. (PR)
