Construction of Clark Global City starts
CONSTRUCTION of the 177-hectare mixed-use development Clark Global City (CGC) in Pampanga has started, with a groundbreaking ceremony held by Udenna Land’s Global Gateway Development Corp. (GGDC), on Nov. 19.
Megawide Construction Corp. was tapped as the general contractor for CGC’s site development, including road and sewage works.
“Bold and audacious projects such as CGC can only be done by partnering with people who not only share the same vision but are also equipped with topnotch execution skills. We are honored to work shoulder to shoulder with Megawide to transform 177 hectares of land into a thriving business center and community,” Udenna Land and GGDC Chairman Dennis A. Uy was quoted as saying in a statement.
Clark Global City, located within a special economic zone, will be home to office buildings, retail outlets, educational institutions, sports centers, an urban park, an integrated resort and casino, among others.
Currently, 47 hectares of the 177-hectare property has been “fully completed with world-class, disaster-ready horizontal infrastructures, including storm water drainage systems, an underground infrastructure network, eight road lanes with 50 meters of right-of-way priority, prime generating units and backup fuel storage.”
“Through Megawide’s engineering capabilities, we will support GGDC and the Philippine Government in establishing the new Central Business District of Central Luzon,” Megawide Chairman Edgar B. Saavedra said in a statement.
