Megaworld Corporation, the country’s most-awarded real estate company, stretched its impressive winning streak further after taking home two major awards from The Outlook 2019: Philippine Buyers’ Choice Property Awards held at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel recently.
The Mactan Newtown, Megaworld’s township in Lapu-Lapu City in Mactan, Cebu, was awarded as the ‘Best Mixed Use Development of 2019 for Visayas and Mindanao’ for seamlessly blending residential, office, commercial, and retail components into a community that promotes an effective integrated lifestyle.
The 30-hectare The Mactan Newtown is the first Megaworld township development outside of Metro Manila with its own beachfront, combining high-end office towers, luxury condominiums, leisure amenities, retail shops, upscale hotels, and a school called ‘The Newtown School of Excellence’ supervised by the Lasallian Schools Supervision Services Association Inc. (LASSSAI).
Receiving the ‘Best Luxe Condo of 2019 for Luzon’ for Megaworld’s The Albany is Noli D. Hernandez, executive vice president for sales and marketing, Megaworld.
Megaworld’s Noli D. Hernandez also accepted the ‘Best Mixed Use Development of 2019 for Visayas and Mindanao’ for The Mactan Newtown.
As the first school venture of Megaworld in the Visayas, the Newtown School of Excellence inside The Mactan Newtown stands as the best learning institution of choice for children of the expat community and residents of Lapu-Lapu City and nearby towns and cities.
The newly opened Savoy Hotel Mactan Newtown offers business travelers and family vacationers the ease of movement in and out of the city, as it is located just 15 minutes away from the new Mactan Cebu International Airport.
Inspired by the ultra-luxury apartments in London’s posh neighborhoods surrounding Hyde Park, The Albany is designed by UK-based architectural firm Broadway Malyan and is located along McKinley West’s Chateau Road, also known as the ‘billionaire’s row.’
The 30-hectare The Mactan Newtown hosts a dynamic mix of residential, commercial, office, hotel, and learning components.
Just last week, the township welcomed the opening of 18-storey Savoy Hotel Mactan Newtown. Offering a total of 547 guestrooms and suites, Savoy Hotel Mactan Newtown enjoys the distinction of being the biggest hotel in terms of number of rooms in Mactan Island and the second biggest in the entire Cebu.
Meanwhile, The Albany, Megaworld’s luxury residential development at McKinley West in Fort Bonifacio, was awarded as the ‘Best Luxe Condo of the Year of 2019 for Luzon’ for redefining top-tier living with its upscale aesthetics, amenities, and facilities.
A low-density, low-rise residential tower composed of only 64 spacious units, The Albany features a modern façade, topnotch amenities, a full smart home automation system, and exclusive direct elevator access from the lobby to the residents’ unit.
“These awards represent the kind of innovation and intricate planning that go into every Megaworld development. We are very thankful for these accolades, which will only continue to inspire us in bringing well-designed properties to more locations all over the Philippines,” says Noli D. Hernandez, executive vice president for sales and marketing, Megaworld.
