Megaworld is the No. 1 residential developer in the Philippines. It pioneered the development of community townships that incorporate the live-work-play-learn concept. It currently has 10 ongoing mega-projects within Metro Manila, Iloilo and Cebu, as well as several residential developments within the Makati central business district and San Juan.
The company was the first to develop an information technology park in the Philippines through Eastwood City, which provides a 24x7 work environment to business process outsourcing companies servicing the global market. The success of Eastwood City, home to a workforce that is 45,000-strong and growing, prompted Megaworld to expand its portfolio to McKinley Hill, now home to some of the biggest names in the BPO industry and with a workforce of about 35,000.
Megaworld is recognized as the leader in office development and is currently the largest BPO office landlord. By the end of 2012, the company expects to have around 500,000 square meters of office space in its portfolio.
With total assets of over P136 billion, the company is in a strong position to pursue its goals as it continues to enhance its operating efficiency and profitability.
Megaworld Senior Vice President Francis Canuto attributes the company’s strong residential sales and rental income to "the strength of the company’s business model.” On top of that, Megaworld has a proven track record in the industry as it has delivered more than 230 buildings to its customers over the last two decades.
