Megaworld Corporation visited Cebu, bringing opportunities to Cebuanos! Megaworld, the developer of Eastwood City in Libis, McKinley Hill in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City and the Newport City in NAAIA Terminal 3 (housing Resorts World Manila), launched their new project "Mactan Newtown". This is another Eastwood City rising in Mactan Island, Cebu.

Just like in Eastwood in 1999, the first food outlet will be McDonald’s, which is set to open in September 2012. This will be the biggest McDonald outlet in Cebu. Other stores to open soon will be a coffee shop and a convenience store. The specs are as follows:
- 4 floors for office, 1 for retail

8 Newtown Boulevard
This development will house 4 residential towers (716 residential units), a 7,250 sqm retail component on the ground floor, and 3 floors of office space with a floor plate of 12,700 sqm each. Construction is under way since January 2012 and should be completed in 30 to 36 months’ time.

- One Pacific Towers
- 3 residential towers, 1 BPO tower
- A Four-Level High End Mall, "PODIUM"


  The entire Mactan Newtown Community will be completed by 7-10 years.

Live. Work. Play.

Megaworld Corporation is staying with their commitment in building communities  integrated with three elements: LIVE (residential), WORK (business offices), and PLAY ( retail and leisure ). Living in one of the Megaworld's Communities, we could say: "This is Life"

A General Concern:

As an Island resident, I just hope that the Local Government is prepared enough for the rising problem such as heavy traffic, pollution and floods. They should already have a strategic plan to control or even eradicate these problems.
