Philippines-based residential and office developer Megaworld has selected UK-based architectural firm Broadway Malyan to develop a new township, McKinley West, in the country.
Located on a 34.5ha former joint US military assistance group (JUSMAG) property in Fort Bonifacio, the township will feature a series of residential estates designed by Broadway Malyan.
Broadway Malyan main board director Ian Simpson said: "This prestigious appointment will draw on the skills and experience of our expert design team and will see us partnering with the top developer in the Philippines to deliver a truly landmark residential scheme.
"Winning this commission demonstrates the calibre of our rapidly-expanding portfolio of work in the Philippines and how we are supporting clients with genuinely market-moving projects."
The company is investing around $1bn in the next decade to build the township.
Residential developments include two to four-bedroom suites with 350m² space and penthouse suites with two-level floor to ceiling windows and private infinity swimming pools.
In addition, the township will also include a business park featuring office towers and commercial and retail buildings.
Megaworld senior vice-president Noli D Hernandez said: "Following the success of our McKinley West Village, which sold out three years ago, McKinley West will provide a luxurious blend of a modern business district and ultra-high-end residential estates that will set a new benchmark in living."
In addition to McKinley West, Megaworld has a portfolio of nine more townships covering 300ha across the country.
