REAL ESTATE firm Megaworld Corp. has forged a deal with state-run Clark Development Corp. to build a P7-billion, mixed-use development at a free port in Pampanga, a disclosure to the local bourse yesterday showed.
The Andrew L. Tan-led developer signed a memorandum of agreement to develop portions of the Clark Freeport Zone and Clark Special Economic Zone totaling 550 hectares, the disclosure stated.
The Megaworld complex, located within the site of the former United States Air Force base in the Philippines, will feature office, commercial, and retail spaces, as well as leisure and entertainment, residential, health and wellness components.
These amenities would be able to cater to foreign and local business process outsourcing firms, retirement communities, and tourism enterprises beyond the company’s existing base in Metro Manila, Megaworld said.
Megaworld’s planned mixed-use development, which will start to be constructed next year,is seen to boost the Clark Freeport zone’s bid to be a major regional investment hub.
Megaworld, founded and incorporated in 1989, is engaged in the development of large-scale mixed-use planned communities or townships that integrate residential, commercial, educational, leisure and entertainment components in Metro Manila.
