Just a month after it announced its 28th township, the 85-hectare Northwin Global City in Marilao and Bocaue in Bulacan, Megaworld is developing around 16 hectares of land to become the township’s central business district (CBD), which will be aptly called the Northwin Main Street.
The Northwin Main Street will be masterplanned like New York City’s Fifth Avenue where corporate buildings, shophouses, hotels, and commercial towers abound while keeping the walkability of the district. It will offer 145 prime shophouse and commercial lots lined up in pedestrian-friendly streets surrounded with well-curated gardens and parks.
Shophouse lot sizes range from 250 square meters to 550 square meters while commercial lot sizes range from 450 square meters to 750 square meters.
Due for turnover in 2026, the company’s projected sales from this project will reach around P6-billion.
With designs inspired by French architecture, shophouses may be built up to three-storeys high for retail, food and beverage outlets such as cafes, restaurants and bars, boutique hotels, and even outpatient clinics. The topmost floor of shophouses may be used for residential or office purposes. Commercial buildings, on the other hand, may be built up to five-storeys high exclusively for commercial purposes only such as office or boutique hotels.
“Since the township is just conveniently located along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), and just 20 kilometers away from Metro Manila, this will be the nearest business district outside of the capital where companies and businesses can build their shops and offices. We also encourage entrepreneurs to become part of this global business district, which will soon be just 20 minutes away from the much-anticipated New Manila International Airport in Bulacan,” says Noli D. Hernandez, executive vice president for sales and marketing, Megaworld.
The Northwin Main Street will be carefully masterplanned for connectivity and mobility with promenades and walking parks to be integrated between blocks of the district. Around 44% of the district will be allocated for green and open spaces. Leading to the district are main roads and avenues that will be as wide as 30 meters or eight lanes for both sides.
One of the main stations of the Manila-Clark Railway project will also be located inside the township, offering convenient accessibility to the future workers and residents of Northwin Global City.
Positioned as Bulacan’s global business district, the P98-billion township will also host residential condominiums, hotels, malls, mixed-use commercial buildings, educational institutions, and state-of-the-art office towers for BPOs and corporate headquarters.
It will also feature green innovations and sustainable ‘iTownship’ facilities such as storm water detention facility for flood prevention, fiber optic and underground cabling system for utilities, LED and solar-powered streetlights, sewage treatment plant, central material recovery facility for waste recycling, as well its own Intermodal Transport Terminal and biking network facilities.
