CEBU, Philippines — The pandemic may have slightly delayed development activities at The Mactan Newtown—property giant Megaworld’s 30-hectare township in Lapu-Lapu City—but the vision still remains for this property hailed at The Outlook Awards by Lamudi Philippines as the “Best Mixed-Use Development for Visayas and Mindanao” not too long ago.

Enjoying the distinction as Megaworld’s first and only township development to date that features its own beachfront, The Mactan Newtown has all the makings of an ideal live-work-play-learn community.

It currently serves as home to several office towers, residential condominium developments, an alfresco dining establishment, a homegrown hotel, as well as Megaworld’s first school in Visayas and Mindanao—the Lasallian-supervised Newtown School of Excellence.

There’s also the soon-to-rise two-level mall along the beachside cliff of the township dubbed as Mactan Newtown Beachwalk, which will be highlighted by a 1.4-hectare man-made lagoon at the center. The development takes inspiration from several iconic coastline commercial developments in South California, where visitors can enjoy coffee, meet friends over lunch or dinner, watch a movie, or simply shop around in a laid-back beach atmosphere.

All of these components combined make The Mactan Newtown perhaps the best place on the island to build and enjoy a holistic lifestyle.

A home inspired by global influences

Featuring an architecture inspired by Spanish edifices, La Victoria Global Residences will reflect the historical significance of Galleon Victoria, the ship that brought Ferdinand Magellan to Cebu Island in 1521.

Rising soon as one of the latest developments in this township is the 20-story La Victoria Global Residences, the fourth residential development inside The Mactan Newtown.

La Victoria Global Residences offers 181 spacious units ranging from studio (up to 40 square meters), one-bedroom (up to 53 square meters), two-bedroom units (up to 80 square meters), and three-bedroom (up to 118 square meters). All units will have their own balconies, overlooking the vast sea and the mountains.

Named after the Spanish carracks that reached Cebu Island in 1521 and became the first to circumnavigate the world, La Victoria Global Residences boasts of elements and installations reminiscent of Ferdinand Magellan’s record-setting expedition to the Philippines. The residential condominium’s main lobby will be designed with elements and installations significant to the Spanish expedition.

“This year, we are commemorating the 500th year of circumnavigation of Magellan after he sailed back home following a defeat in the hands of the Filipinos led by Rajah Lapu-Lapu. We envision La Victoria Global Residences to proudly showcase this historic victory of native Filipinos and become another iconic feature as we continue to bring our vision for The Mactan Newtown to fruition,” Jennifer Palmares-Fong, vice president for sales and marketing, Megaworld Visayas, said.
