Soon To Rise: The Mactan Newtown Beach Walk by Megaworld
I am very excited to know that my beloved Lapu-Lapu City will finally have a mall complex that's like no other. All thanks to the property giant, Megaworld, as they will be building a Php 1.5B two-level mall along the shoreline cliff of its 30-hectare The Mactan Newtown development.

What to expect about the newest beach mall:

The Mactan Newtown Beach Walk will be highlighted by a 1.4-hectare man-made lagoon at the center. The lagoon will have floating boardwalks and a bridge that will connect both sides of the mall. It can also serve as a venue for future water sports activities such as jet ski, wakeboarding, stand-up paddling, and boating. The lagoon will also have its own man-made shoreline at its perimeter.

Designed and operated under the Megaworld Lifestyle Malls brand, the Mactan Newtown Beach Walk will also have its own chapel that will be surrounded by a garden by the cliff side overlooking the sea. Four state-of-the-art cinemas, a food hall, al fresco areas, a Traveler's Lounge, and a view deck are also expected to be built to allow visitors and mall-goers have a panoramic view of the sea and nearby islands.

Kevin Tan, Chief Strategy Officer of Megaworld, explains that Megaworld Lifestyle Malls is bringing a fresh, new concept of mall development in Cebu that recreates and innovates the beach lifestyle experience. They took inspiration from some 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.

The mall complex will also have its three-storey boutique hotel offering 48 spacious guestrooms with retails shops at its ground level. This will be operated under the Megaworld Hotels brand.

Since the Mactan Newtown is abundantly surrounded with trees and Megaworld staying true to its commitment to sustainability, solar roof panels will be used for this new mall and will utilize an open layout scheme for passive cooling and natural lighting in most of the development's common areas. Around 40% of the entire development will be dedicated to green and open spaces. Untouched areas will be dedicated for bike trails, airsoft shooting, and tree-top activities.

Megaworld will spend Php 1.5B to build the Mactan Newtown Beach Walk and is expected to rise by 2021.
