MEGAWORLD emerged as this year’s most awarded company in the 2015 Property and Real Estate Awards recently held in the new Marriott Grand Ballroom in Newport City.
Organized by the International Real Estate Federation (FIABCI) Philippine chapter, the awards were given to property developers that established proven track records and remarkable performances.
Megaworld received the coveted “Overall Outstanding Developer” award for pioneering and innovating the live-work-play lifestyle concept into its developments. This has served as a model of other mixed-use developments in the country, the firm said in a press statement.
Megaworld Chairman and CEO Dr. Andrew L. Tan was named “Property Man of the Year” for his outstanding contributions to the Philippine real estate industry.
Aside from the two major awards, the company also bagged the “Outstanding Developer for Office” for its 8 Campus Place, the first Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) Gold-certified office building for business process outsourcing companies located in McKinley Hill Township in Fort Bonifacio; and the “Outstanding Developer for Townships/Mixed-use Communities” for Eastwood City, the country’s first Philippine Economic Zone-accredited cyber-park for Information Technology-Business Process and Outsourcing (IT-BPO).
“We build cities within cities. We help businesses grow as they provide more jobs for more Filipinos. We help build people’s dreams for a better life in every community that we create. This is the future of the Philippine real estate industry,” Dr. Tan said.
The 2015 Property & Real Estate Awards is FIABCI’s first in the Philippines and was attended by hundreds of property and home developers, contractors, realtors, brokers from the Asia-Pacific region as well as Philippine government officials.
Megaworld has 17 urban integrated townships in its portfolio, with 712,000 square meters of office spaces for IT-BPO and traditional companies. The company recently launched two townships in Bacolod, Northill Gateway (53 hectares) and The Upper East (34 hectares) and three more townships are underway.
Its other townships include The Mactan Newtown in Cebu (28.8 hectares).(PR)
