Broadway Malyan to design residential estates in $1bn Manila township project
Megaworld, the leading residential condominium and office developer-landlord in the Philippines, has announced that it is to develop McKinley West - an ultra-high-end township on a 34.5-hectare former JUSMAG (Joint US Military Assistance Group) property in Fort Bonifacio, adjacent to Forbes Park and Manila Polo Club in Manila, the Philippines.
The company is spending $1bn (£619m / PHP45bn) over the next ten years to build the township. As well as featuring a residential village, McKinley West will host a series of luxury residential estates designed by global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan.
Some of the properties will boast their own swimming pools, state-of-the-art security features and first-of-their-kind luxury amenities. Two-to-four bedroom suites will cover up to 350 sq m, with penthouse suites featuring two-level floor-to-ceiling windows and private infinity swimming pools. McKinley West will also include a business park with modern office towers, as well as commercial and retail buildings.
Ian Simpson, Main Board Director at Broadway Malyan, said: “This prestigious appointment will draw on the skills and experience of our expert design team and will see us partnering with the top developer in the Philippines to deliver a truly landmark residential scheme. Winning this commission demonstrates the calibre of our rapidly-expanding portfolio of work in the Philippines and how we are supporting clients with genuinely market-moving projects.”
Noli D. Hernandez, Senior Vice President at Megaworld, said: “Following the success of our McKinley West Village which sold out three years ago, McKinley West will provide a luxurious blend of a modern business district and ultra-high-end residential estates that will set a new benchmark in living.”
