Bulacan is a prosperous province that is abundant in agricultural and natural resources and has a rich history and heritage that its locals are proud of. With its ideal location as the "Northern Gateway," Bulacan is an ideal investment destination because of factors including highly-skilled human resources and a thriving local economy spurred by developments that have been encouraged by the local government, including infrastructure projects that link it to the Greater Manila Area.

With all these advantages in place, Megaworld is bringing its expertise in developing master-planned townships to Bulacan. Its latest project, Northwin Global City combines residential and commercial elements in a world-class mixed-use community within a sprawling 86-heactare property.

One of the exciting elements of the Northwin Global City is its Central Business District called Main Street. Inspired by New York's Fifth Avenue, the business and lifestyle row is about 15 hectares of 145 prime shophouse and commercial lots that is set to house local and global brands that who want to establish a presence in this progressive province.

Main roads in this township will go as wide as eight lanes, while remaining pedestrian-friendly.

For a truly global feel, the structures are envisioned to have elements of French architecture. Shophouse lot sizes ranging from 250 sqm to 550 sqm are ideal for businesses engaged in retail, food and beverage outlets such as cafes, restaurants and bars, boutique hotels, and even outpatient clinics.

These will be lined up in streets that are pedestrian-friendly, with a feel of fresh air and wide open spaces as they are surrounded by well-curated gardens, promenades, and parks. Residents and travelers can stroll leisurely through the commercial area and find everything that they need, whether it's a grocery run, a gourmet meal with family, a night-out with friends, or even a health check-up.

Leisure and the future

Located in the municipalities of Bocaue and Marilao, Northwin Global City is set to be Bulacan's first-ever metropolitan hub for business and lifestyle. Aside from the Main Street commercial district, the township will have high-rise residential condominiums, hotels, malls, mixed-use commercial buildings, educational institutions, and state-of-the-art office towers.

While offering the synergy of the Live, Work, and Play philosophy that has led to its market leadership in property development, Megaworld is also bringing its iTownship concept to Northwin Global City. With the vision of creating smart and sustainable developments all over the country, Megaworld has re-imagined and innovated its townships by incorporating digital technology, design innovations, and connectivity into their design.

Northwin Global City will soon rise along the North Luzon Expressway.

To ensure mobility within Northwin, main roads and avenues will be as wide as 30 meters or eight lanes for both sides, while keeping it walkable and bike-friendly between buildings with around 44% of the district allocated for green spaces. This is a refreshing change from staying indoors during the community quarantines, with more opportunities to enjoy a more active lifestyle in open air. There will also be an Intermodal Transport Terminal and biking network facilities to allow for easy, car-free movement within the development.

The property will also feature eco-friendly innovations and sustainable 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, and a central material recovery facility for waste recycling.

These innovations are set to bring Northwin Global City as one of the prime investment areas in the near North, as a lifestyle center that caters to its residents and nearby areas that will enjoy its amenities at the Main Street hub.

Bulacan’s first-ever business and lifestyle hub will soon be home to some of the country’s biggest companies.

Main Street and the major roadways

Another attraction for locators to the township is the ease of access. Northwin Global City is located along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), and just 20 kilometers away from Metro Manila. It will host the Marilao-Bagong Ilog station of the North-South Commuter Rail of the Manila-Clark Railway Project by the Philippine National Railway (PNR), which is expected to be fully operational by 2024. It is just 5 minutes from the Philippine Arena and 20 minutes away from the much-anticipated New Manila International Airport in Bulacan.

"Northwin Global City Main Street is a commercial hub that will be a major gateway to the North. With one of the main stations of the Manila-Clark Railway project located inside the township, it will be highly accessible to Northwin Global City's future workers and residents. Main Street is a highly-attractive location for entrepreneurs because it will be the nearest business district outside of the capital where companies and businesses can build their shops and offices," says Noli D. Hernandez, executive vice president for sales and marketing for Megaworld.

Positioned as Bulacan's global business district, the P98-billion township offers a vibrant, future-forward development that is set to be the address of choice for residents and business locators alike.
