Located at the expansive 54-hectare estate property at the district of Mandurriao, Megaworld is building a new and world-class mixed-use commercial complex aimed at harnessing the potential of Iloilo and of Panay Island as the country’s next area of economic boom.

As of January 2013, Megaworld has revealed exciting plans and projects within the property that is now underway. Once completed, this sprawling district will ultimately deserve the title as the Bonifacio Global City (BGC) of the South.

Here are several projects expected for completion in 2014 and 2015:422340_10200366694836060_2084519881_n
