Five of these new expansive townships and lifestyle communities are in Luzon, while one is in Mindanao.

“Currently, we have a little over 4,000 hectares of both developed and developable land. By next year, we will increase our land ownership and land holding to more than 6,000 hectares as we continue to focus on our goal to expand to key growth areas in the provinces; help boost tourism, provide jobs, and further spur economic opportunities outside of Metro Manila,” reveals Kevin L. Tan, chief strategy officer.

At present, Megaworld already has 24 townships and lifestyle communities spread across the country: Nine (9) in Metro Manila, which include Eastwood City, McKinley Hill, Forbes Town, McKinley West, Uptown Bonifacio, Newport City, Alabang West, Westside City, and Arcovia City; eight (8) in Luzon, which include Capital Town Pampanga, Eastland Heights, Twin Lakes, Southwoods City, Suntrust Ecotown, Maple Grove, Hamptons Caliraya, and Highland City; six (6) in the Visayas, which include The Mactan Newtown, Iloilo Business Park, Boracay Newcoast, The Upper East, Northill Gateway, and Sta.

MEGAWORLD UPDATE: Megaworld’s net income jumps 17% to record high of P15.8-B in 2018

Megaworld Update

Megaworld Update: “Office, mall, residential, and hotel businesses see double-digit growth during the year”
MANILA, Philippines, April 08, 2019
‐ Megaworld, the country’s largest developer of integrated urban townships, saw its net income grow by 17% to P15.8-billion in 2018 from P13.6-billion (excluding P113-million non-recurring gain) the previous year. Net income attributable to parent company ended at P15.2-billion by end-December 2018, a 17% jump from P13.0-billion in 2017 (excluding P113-million non-recurring gain).

Consolidated revenues grew about 15% to P57.4-billion in 2018 from the previous year’s P50-billion (excluding P113-million non-recurring gain).

The company’s rental businesses, comprising of office and lifestyle mall leasing, strongly contributed to the topline, soaring 21% to P14.3-billion in 2018 from the previous year’s P11.8-billion. This contributed 25% of the total consolidated revenues during the year.

Megaworld Update: In 2018 alone, Megaworld has already achieved over 70% of its rental income target of P20-billion by end of next year.

Last year, Megaworld opened its biggest mall development outside of Metro Manila, the Festive Walk Mall in Iloilo Business Park, offering around 90,000 square meters in gross floor area. It also opened two new community malls – the San Lorenzo Place in Makati City, and The Village Alabang in Las Piñas City.

Also last year, the company closed a historic deal in Philippine real estate when it bagged the long-term lease contract to build the 25-storey Philippine Global Service Center of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. It was regarded as the country’s biggest single lease transaction to date, with around 70,000 square meters of ‘build-to-suit’ office spaces for a single company alone.

“We have already secured multiple pre-lease deals for our office buildings as well that are in the pipeline until next year. Same goes to our mall and commercial spaces that are set to open in our various townships. For our residential properties, we continue to see strong take-up especially in our mature townships, and there is already a consistently growing interest in our newly-launched townships,” says Kevin L. Tan, chief strategy officer, Megaworld.

Megaworld’s residential business, on the other hand, saw a double-digit growth of 11.5% in 2018 to P38.0-billion from P34.1-billion during the same period the previous year. This contributed to 66% of the total consolidated revenues during the year.

The Megaworld Group launched 25 residential projects in 2018, with a total sales value of around P106-billion. The company also achieved P135-billion worth of sales reservation during the year.

Megaworld’s hotel business, likewise, grew its revenues by about 14% to P1.5-billion compared to P1.3-billion in 2017. The company launched two new hotels last year: the 684-room Savoy Hotel Manila in Newport City, and the 126-room Twin Lakes Hotel in Twin Lakes, Laurel, Batangas. This brought the number of Megaworld Hotels to seven (7) by end-2018.

“We have gained the fruits of our expansion in the regions as we saw continuing growth in the demand for residential units as well as office and commercial spaces in our various townships across the country. Perhaps, as we build these townships, people saw the advantage of living where they work, and living where everything is just within reach. This model makes every aspect of our business viable and expandable, and we continue to spot for opportunities where we can further grow and innovate our offerings,” explains Tan.

Megaworld Update: Just several weeks ago, together with its subsidiary Empire East Land Holdings, Inc., Megaworld introduced its 24th township, the 24-hectare Highland City along F. Felix Avenue in Cainta, Rizal. It allocated P20-billion to develop the township within a 10-year period.

Megaworld Unveils Iconic Martin Delgado Monument in Iloilo Business Park

Martin Delgado

Iloilo City – Philippines, January 19, 2019 – In Iloilo where the city’s rich history is present in every corner, the 8.8-meter bronze statue of the greatest Visayan ‘revolucionario’ General Martin Delgado in Iloilo Business Park (IBP) is something that is hard to miss.

A masterpiece created by Spanish sculptor Gines Serran-Pagan, one of the world’s most renowned international contemporary artists, the Gen. Delgado statue has become nothing short of a landmark in the City of Love. Located at the Casa de Emperador inside Iloilo Business Park, the statue stands proudly as a tribute to Ilonggo hero’s historic feat.

“We are very happy to have such an iconic masterpiece here in Iloilo Business Park, especially one that bears a stamp of artistic greatness courtesy of Gines Serran-Pagan. This statue is truly a fitting reminder of the continued emergence of Iloilo as a progessive city that puts the arts, history, and culture at its very core,” says Kevin L. Tan, executive vice president and chief strategy officer, Megaworld.

The statue was first made in clay, then fiber glass, and eventually casted into bronze by Serran-Pagan himself. It took almost a month for the statue to arrive here in the Philippines from China where it was created, but the overall design and preparation of the massive artpiece took more than three years to be completed.

“I feel really proud because General Martin T. Delgado deserved this honor for having sacrificed his life for Iloilo. The bronze sculpture has the durability of thousands of years. His legacy will be an inspiration to future generations. My gratitude to his family, the people of Iloilo, and to Dr. Andrew L. Tan and his company Megaworld for giving me the opportunity to create this monument and commemorate the most famous son and hero of Iloilo,” shares Serran-Pagan.

Born in Ceuta, Spain, Serran-Pagan has devoted his life in developing communities by combining art, anthropology, history and culture. Some of his remarkable sculptures include the Pillars of Hercules: Abyla and Caipe and The Union of the World: Monument to World Peace, deemed to be the largest works of art depicting Classic mythology in the contemporary world which are both in Gibraltar.

Just recently, Serran-pagan was feted with the Lorenzo de Medici Medal of the Artism Miami, Florida for his valuable contribution to the arts in the world. The recognition was bestowed upon him by Prince Lorenzo De Medici himself, the direct descendant of the Renaissance sponsor of the Arts.

With over 250 exhibitions across 20 countries, international news agencies and organizations consider Serran-Pagan as a western artist who has had more exhibitions in Asia. He earned a master’s degree in Anthropology from New York University and a PhD from City University New York. Serran-Pagan’s artworks are collected by major museums around the globe, including the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

Martin Delgado

Iloilo Business Park was recently named by the prestigious Philippine Property Awards as the Philippines’ “Best Township Development”, the IBP highlights the importance of art in further developing communities. Perfectly blending urban architecture with art, history, and culture, the 72-hectare Megaworld township has become the place where art enthusiasts discover more about their craft at the Iloilo Museum of Contemporary (ILOMOCA). One of the latest additions to Iloilo Business Park, the museum happens to be a sanctuary where Ilonggos and tourists alike can feed their love for the art with various paintings and sculptures from local and international artists.
