Brief History/Background

Megaworld was bought from the land of the Aranetas. Amado Araneta is one of Negros’ well-respected business tycoons. He is also the Araneta behind the developments in Cubao and Araneta Coliseum QC. With strategic partnership with Megaworld led by Dr. Andrew Tan, this dream location in Bacolod is now a reality. Andrew Tan is the Philippine’s 6th richest person ($2.3B) as per Forbes’ list.

This area was formerly the Bacolod-Murcia Milling Company (a sugar central where the harvests are milled).

Aside from the inspiration from New York, this township community will be situated at the east / upper east area of the city, hence the name Upper East. This land now is surrounded by the Lopez-Jaena street at the West, Burgos Street on the north and Circumferential / Carlos Hilado Road on the east.

This project will be composed of state-of-the-art urban facilities, creative attractions, walkable and patrolled streets, bike lanes and scenic garden landscapes. 

What Sets It Apart

What sets Upper East condo apart from other properties in Bacolod?

  • Location
  • Amenities
  • Centrality of economic and government centers,
  • High ROI value

What sets this condo apart from other condos in this area is the exceptional location that allows for an unparalleled luxury experience in Bacolod as well as an exceptional nearness of distance from the city. It is a township-style community that is designed to give its residents not just accessibility but peace, quiet, and abundance as well. 

The Developer

Bacolod’s Upper East, just like Megaworld’s flagship community projects in Iloilo, Taguig, Cebu and others was designed to be another “mega” or “complete community” which Megaworld is known for- a community hub that reflects a decades-old ideals of the company.

Megaworld’s prime thrust is the integration of residences, work places, commercial centres and learning institutions in strategic places in the Philippines to become one upscale community.

The project will take 10 years to develop and was designed to be flood-free. It will use drip irrigation system for the landscapes, LED and solar-powered street lights, underground cabling system for electricity and water re-use facilities. 

Aerial shot update - June 2021

Megaworld Corporation is the country’s leading real estate developer and No. 1 business process and outsourcing (BPO) office developer and landlord in the Philippines. Led by real estate magnate and visionary, Dr. Andrew L. Tan, Megaworld pioneered the LIVE-WORK-PLAY-LEARN township concept in the country.

Has 21 townships in the Philippines

To date, the company already has 21 integrated urban township developments across the Philippines, namely: Eastwood City in Quezon City, (18 hectares); Newport City in Pasay City (25 hectares); McKinley Hill (50 hectares), McKinley West (34.5 hectares), Uptown Bonifacio (15.4 hectares) and Forbes Town Center (5 hectares), all in Fort Bonifacio; The Mactan Newtown in Cebu (30 hectares); Iloilo Business Park (72 hectares) and Sta.

Long-term growth, slow depreciation

If you’re into rental or resale, you’ll prioritize high market demand, long-term development potential, and slow value depreciation. You’ll want a location that will put you NEAR strategic points of the city. Where you enjoy a walking distance to beautiful parks, public spaces, malls, churches, hotels, and transportation hubs. There is no other better place than where Megaworld Upper East is rising now. 

Retirement Haven is Upper East

Bacolod City has been awarded a retirement haven last 2019. It was also awarded as a Top Philippine Model City for 2019, as well as Business-Friendly/High Returns.

By places, you have proximity of beaches such as Lakawon and Sipalay. Mountains such as DSB, Guintubdan and Canlaon. Cities such as Bacolod, Cebu and Iloilo.

Low cost of living, less traffic jams, more time for life, access to urban infras, nearness to natural and cultural heritage, great foods! – these are just some of the reasons I love Bacolod.

"A Rewarding Place for Those Coming Home for Good"

Bacolod is just a smaller city compared to Cebu, Metro Manila and Davao but the 6th most densely-populated highly-urbanized city outside of Metro Manila with 3,496 persons per square km. 

In 2017 & 2019, Bacolod was awarded as the “Top Philippine Model City,” the most livable urban center in PH by The Manila Times. Bacolod also won two special awards – Business-Friendly/High Returns and Retirement Haven.

Bacolod has benefited greatly from the waves of progress brought by the sugar boom in the 1960s to 1980s, the numerous seafarer graduates of the region, the values of the people influenced by American education reforms, Protestant and Roman Christianity, Chinese wisdom, political stability, low crime rate, the good geographical location, proximity to sea and mountains and the excellent BPO industry.

An upscale community with the concept of township right at the nucleus of Bacolod City - live, work and play.
