Property developer Megaworld Corp. on Wednesday said it is spending some P98 billion to develop some 85 hectares of land in Bulacan, transforming huge tracts of land into a business district.

“This is like building a new city that will put the province of Bulacan in the global business map because we envision huge multinational companies to be operating here once our commercial district and our office towers will be completed. Northwin Global City’s close proximity to Metro Manila and its ideal location just along NLEX and the major transport infrastructure will be very favorable for the future locators and residents of this township,” Kevin Andrew L. Tan, Megaworld’s executive vice president, said.

The township will have its own commercial district, high-rise residential condominiums, hotels, malls, mixed-use commercial buildings, educational institutions and office towers.

Around 40 percent of the entire development will be dedicated to green and open spaces such as landscaped parks.

The company will also be integrating its features its previous developments, including the installation of solar-powered and LED streetlights, underground cabling system, fiber optic cabling, bike lanes, storm water detention facility for flood prevention, intermodal transport terminal and other infrastructure for mobility and connectivity.

Northwin Global City will also host one of the stations of the Manila-Clark Railway Project. Once completed, future residents, locators and even visitors of the township will have the most convenient access to and from Metro Manila as well as to and from Clark International Airport.

“Once completed, Northwin Global City will have convenient access to three international airports in Bulacan, Clark, and even in Metro Manila. By then, we hope to be able to create more jobs for Filipinos especially in that part of Central Luzon,” Tan said.
