Tycoon Andrew Tan-led Megaworld is making great strides in building sustainable communities with residential, commercial, and recreational components.
Megaworld and its leisure estate unit Global Estate Resorts Inc. are investing P18 billion over the next 15 years to develop the Arden Botanical Estate in Cavite.
Half of the entire township, located on a 251-hectare property at the boundary of Trece Martires City and Tanza, Cavite, will be allocated for residential developments while the rest will be for commercial, institutional, recreational, and open spaces.
The project will feature natural rivers and organic gardens, as well as tree-lined roads and avenues, and lotus ponds.
It will also include other sustainability features such as the use of solar street lights, electric shuttles for transport, storm water recycling, permeable pavements for driveways and parking, and organic fertilizers and pesticides for gardens.
“Our concept for this expansive development is to allow everyone living, working and even visiting the township to appreciate a beautiful and purposeful life. This is another unique township concept that will certainly stand out from any other developments in and around Cavite,” said Kevin L. Tan, chief strategy officer at Megaworld.
