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 which was 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 a home to several office towers, residential condominium developments, an alfresco dining establishment and a homegrown hotel, as well as Megaworld’s first school in the 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 the “Mactan Newtown Beachwalk,” which features 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
Rising soon as one of the latest developments in this township is the 20-storey La Victoria Global Residences, the fourth residential development inside The Mactan Newtown.
The La Victoria Global Residences offers 181 spacious dwellings ranging from studio (up to 40 square meters), one-bedroom (up to 53 square meters), two-bedroom (up to 80 square meters) and three-bedroom units (up to 118 square meters). All units will have their own balconies, overlooking the vast sea and the mountains.
Named after the Spanish carrack that reached Cebu Island in 1521 and became the first to circumnavigate the world, La Victoria Global Residences boasts 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 the 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,” says Jennifer Palmares-Fong, vice president for sales and marketing, Megaworld Visayas.
Elegance in every corner
Designed to cater to people who appreciate art as a vital element of a home, future residents of La Victoria Global Residences can indulge in a multifaceted lifestyle every day, particularly via the tower’s amenity deck located on the third floor. Here, they can bond and enjoy the company of their loved ones at the infinity pool, the stylish sunbathing deck and a ship playground for kids.
There are also relaxation and reading lounges, a function room, a fitness center, fitness trail and jogging path and a daycare center.
The timeless elegance of La Victoria Global Residences will be encapsulated at the tower’s central façade, where one will find an inscription of the inclusive years that the carrack Victoria spent to complete its circumnavigation of the world just below the tower’s name.
La Victoria Global Residences’ iconic address provides a glimpse of Filipino fortitude that placed the nation in global history. It is a home that embodies exceptional living and inspires passion-driven lives to grow exceptionally by building a legacy that no one has ever done.
Whether one is exploring the township, letting time pass by at the beachfront or opting to stay in to enjoy his own space, life at The Mactan Newtown gets better every day at La Victoria Global Residences.
