The company primarily made a name for itself for creating top of the line residential buildings and commercial infrastructures situated in the most convenient urban sites with simple access to business offices, as well as entertainment establishments in the country’s capital, Metropolitan Manila. At the start of 1996, in response to the increasing public clamor for the lifestyle suitability of having great options for residential living in near proximity to work, school, and leisure areas, Megaworld started to shift its focus on the development of multi-purpose neighborhoods, mainly for the middle-income sector, by initiating the development of its Eastwood City township project. Also, the company participates in other real estate related ventures such as project design/improvement, construction oversight and management. In the year 1999, the Filipinos witnessed the inauguration of the first technology-based park in the country, Eastwood City Cyberpark, which also happens to receive the recognition of being a PEZA special economic zone.
CORPORATE MISSION STATEMENT
Megaworld Corporation aspires to guarantee your highest satisfaction through topnotch quality products and services conceived in the spirit of improvement and born out of relentless pursuit of innovation and development. The company gives high importance to the continuous advancement of the knowledge and skills of all company personnel, especially its key people, so that they can deliver unparalleled services that only Megaworld can provide.
It all started on August 24, 1989, with the vision of a man named Andrew L. Tan. Initially, it was named Megaworld Properties & Holdings Inc, with purpose of engaging in property development, leasing, and marketing.
Megaworld decided to turn Empire East Land Holdings Inc. into a separate entity in 1994. It is the division that is in-charge of the company’s community housing projects. This decision was implemented for the purpose of streamlining the business operations that separates its high-end residential and office infrastructure projects from its low to mid-level housing ventures.
Undeniably, the enterprise has come a long way since it initiated its business with the erection of a residential building situated in Greenhills, San Juan City, Metro Manila. Due to the ever increasing demand of condominiums, the company increased its operations to take advantage of the country’s economic growth. On June 15, 1994, in just five years after its inception, Megaworld Corporation officially became listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange.
On August 19, 1999, the company shifted its direction from an entirely real estate enterprise into a holding company. With this, the company revised its registered name to what it is presently known, Megaworld Corporation. It may have changed its name, but the core focus of the company’s operation remained to be on property development.
Megaworld successfully maintains its reputation as the country’s biggest condominium developer by having an impressive portfolio that covers vertical structures, residential houses, township communities, hotels, and multi-purpose buildings that primarily caters to the middle and upper class market. Its subsidiary, Empire East Land Holdings Inc., has successfully penetrated and ventured into median-priced developments in the south of Luzon. This is a testament to Megaworld’s commitment to provide high quality real estate developments that caters to each unique needs of every Filipino.
