The Mactan Newtown, a brand-new township in Lapu-Lapu City, Mactan Island, Cebu, couldn’t have come at a better time. Like its urban counterparts, the 16-hectare has everything that defines a Megaworld township: a prime location, a master-planned setting and interconnected live-work-play components. With all these elements combined, the community offers unbeatable value for any retiree’s hard-earned money.If Mactan Newtown is a haven, its residential offering, Eight Newtown Boulevard Mactan Island, is even more so. Megaworld is marketing the new condominium project to those that want to reward themselves with the good life during retirement. Recently, it partnered with the Philippines Retirement Authority, or PRA, to afford home buyers even more privileges. Megaworld’s partnership with the PRA authorizes the developer to facilitate applications for the Special Resident Retiree’s Visa of qualified foreign clients investing in its real estate products. Geographically, Eight Newtown Boulevard is adjacent to the Shangri-La Mactan and Portofino resorts along the Hilutungan Channel near Magellan Bay, giving residents instant access to the beach.As part of Mactan Newtown, the project is located along the northeastern section of the Mactan Circumferential Road, which makes getting around Lapu-Lapu City and Cebu City easy and convenient.
