MEGAWORLD CORP. is adjusting the design of its 11-hectare township project in Davao City to include a feature that would “become a tourist destination,” according to the company’s communications head. Brian C. Geronimo, head of public relations and communications, said the redesign is part of the evolution of the Davao District Park complex. “We are coming out with something that has not been thought before,” he said. “Every township has its own character… One thing I can assure you it will become a tourist destination; it is something that would take care of Mindanao’s heritage and culture and something of its history,” he added. The first building in the complex, now under construction with a budget of about P1.2 billion, will be a 15-storey office center. Construction is also underway for the residential towers, while the Lanang Premier Doctors Hospital is expected to be completed within the next two years. — Carmelito Q. Francisco
