Last Tuesday, May 15, The Shophouse District in Capital Town Pampanga held its Groundbreaking Ceremony.

Chelsea Parkplace-Megaworld Residential Condo In Pampanga
Megaworld Corporation, the top developer of integrated urban townships, has launched its first residential development in its 35.6-hectare Capital Town in San Fernando, Pampanga.
To be called Chelsea Parkplace, the 12-story residential tower offers 193 units ranging from studio (up to 31 square meters), one-bedroom (up to 45.5 square meters), and two-bedroom (up to 88 square meters).
It takes inspiration from the boroughs of New York City and all units of Chelsea Parkplace will have balconies, offering views of the landscape of Capital Town.
Its amenities include both adult pool and kiddie pool with pool lounge and outdoor benches, indoor and outdoor events hall, fitness center, and a daycare center.
“After selling around 70 percent of our shophouse lots in Capital Town in just a little over six months, we have experienced a spike on inquiries on residential developments within the township,” said Megaworld Pampanga First Vice President for Sales and Marketing Eugene Em Lozano.
He added that, “we launched this project this year in response to the demand. Perhaps, people saw the rise of the capital city of San Fernando to be a major beneficiary of the growth of Clark and Pampanga in general.”
Megaworld expects R1 billion in sales revenues from this new residential project, which is due for completion in 2022.
Capital Town is Megaworld’s first township development in Central and Northern Luzon. Formerly the site of the Pampanga Sugar Development Company (PASUDECO), it is one of Pampanga’s historical treasures and is located near the Pampanga Provincial Capitol.
“With the completion of the Manila-Clark railway where San Fernando will have its own station, it would only take around 30-40 minutes or even less to reach the City of San Fernando from Metro Manila, and less than 10 minutes to and from Clark,” said Lozano.
Commercial Lots In Pampanga For Shophouse District
Property giant Megaworld has sold around 70 percent of its Shophouse District in its Capital Town development in the City of San Fernando, Pampanga.
The 6.3-hectare Shophouse District, composed of 98 lots ranging from 276 square meters to 680 square meters, allows lot owners to build their own three-level shophouse in neoclassical and art deco architecture. They can use the ground and second levels of the shophouse for commercial purposes while the third level may be used as business owner’s residence.
Businesses such as retail, food and beverage, pet shops, fashion boutiques, out-patient clinics, product showrooms, out-patient clinics and boutique hotels may be allowed in the Shophouse District.
Al Fresco lots are also available to those who require outdoor seating areas such as cafes and restaurants.
The district will adopt a ‘walkable’ concept where people can just freely stroll along cobblestone-inspired alleys and walkways while enjoying architecture as well as urban and heritage art installations.
Almost 40 percent of the entire Shophouse District are dedicated to open spaces including alleys, roads and easements.
“The core concept and idea of the Shophouse District is to provide a venue for local entrepreneurs of Pampanga and nearby provinces to showcase their products and masterpieces by building their businesses with us,” says Eugene Em Lozano, first vice president for sales and marketing, Megaworld Pampanga.
Megaworld expects P1-billion in sales from the Shophouse District, which was formally launched in June last year.
Titled Commercial Lots for Shophouses offered in the historic city of San Fernando,Pampanga
The next central business district in the north will rise in the booming economic capital of Pampanga. Set to fulfill the role as a catalyst for economic growth, real estate giant Megaworld is building Capital Town Pampanga to introduce a world-class integrated urban township with a flair for history and Kampampangan heritage.
The Capital Town, a 35.6-hectare property at the site of the old Pampanga Sugar Development Company (PASUDECO) area, will have a Shophouse District as one of its key components. The district will be a six-hectare commercial business property that will be composed a line up of low-rise, three-level commercial spaces with lot sizes ranging from 276 to 680 square meters.
The Shophouse District is envisioned to provide an avenue for entrepreneurs to conduct their business in an atmosphere where existing and new businesses can expand and flourish. Some lots include al fresco areas that are ideal for business ventures like cafes, pastries, and restaurants.
The design concept will exude neoclassical architecture with art deco details reminiscent of the prosperous era of the ‘50s. Local trees will also thrive along the streets such as Salibongbong, Banaba, and Alibangbang—local versions of Japan’s cherry blossom trees.
“Through the Shophouse District, we aim to support local businesses and showcase the best of what Pampanga has to offer, like some of the homegrown and unrivaled Kapampangan culinary cuisines,” says Eugene Em Lozano, first vice-president for Sales and Marketing, Megaworld Pampanga. “The Shophouse District will be a place for entrepreneurs to branch out and flourish.”
Aside from commercial lots, the Shophouse District will have an Events Trade Hall where design, lifestyle, and arts can be exhibited in one place. Local and international trade shows can also be hosted to showcase the beauty and the uniqueness of Kapampangan artistry. There will also be an outdoor amphitheater perfect for concerts and local cultural performances.
Apart from the development, Capital Town Pampanga is also expected to provide additional employment opportunities to the local workforce as it is deemed to generate around 250,000 direct and indirect jobs once the township is completed.
Megaworld has allocated Php 30 billion to build Capital Town Pampanga in the next 10 years. This includes the development of key residential, office, commercial, retail, civic, and institutional components within the township.
In line with the company’s aim of integrating local culture and heritage into its properties, another key highlight of Capital Town Pampanga will be its PASUDECO museum and mall honoring its historic past.
For much-needed greenery and environmental escape, 25 percent of the entire township will have landscaped open spaces, pocket garden water features, small parks, including functional road networks, and trails for leisure walks, jogging, or biking activities.
With the development of Capital Town Pampanga, the province enters a new phase of growth. The Shophouse District at Capital Town is easily accessible via the North Luzon Expressway (via San Fernando exit) and around 30 minutes away from the Clark International Airport.

Pampanga is said to be fast approaching its golden days with the avalanche of good and promising developments on its plate. Projects and businesses are mushrooming in its towns in copious numbers, particularly in San Fernando where economic activities are at its starkest. Records from the Department of Trade and Industry attest to such bounty as the government agency documented almost 34,740 new business names registered across the region. The increase in business name registration is only one of the countless indicators; here, we identify more telling indicators of the growing economy in Pampanga.
Capital Town Pampanga: Megaworld’s first venture into the dynamic Northern province
Megaworld Corporation is once again set to prove its merit as a township pioneer and expert as it takes on San Fernando with a mixed-use development that melds culture and progress: Capital Town Pampanga, the property giant’s first township in the north.
Soon to rise in the former site of the Pampanga Sugar Development Company (PASUDECO), the 35.6-hectare township will be home to residential and business process outsourcing (BPO) components, civic and institutional facilities like schools, event venues, and a heritage museum; malls and retail spaces, and a hotel. Green and open spaces, which include road networks, will make up a quarter of the development.
One of Capital Town Pampanga’s many highlights will be the Shophouse District: rows of neoclassical and art deco-style structures that call to mind the heritage houses of the province. Envisioned as the crown jewel of the township, the six-hectare district will be composed of 276- to 680-square-meter lots aimed for entrepreneurs who wish to live above their business.
Upon its completion, around 250,000 jobs are projected to be generated, which will include direct and indirect employment in sectors like BPO, transport, and retail. As a new central business district in the north that combines the modernity of an advanced town with the history of a traditional site, Capital Town Pampanga is bound to redefine live-work-play in Northern Luzon.

Massive Commercial Developments
Rural progress is becoming more and more manifest in Pampanga, especially with the opening of an S&R outlet in the city of San Fernando. S&R is a membership-shopping club modeled after the warehouse membership shopping chains introduced in the United States.
Another laudable feat for the city is the opening of new franchises at the Event Centre Boulevard of LGC Complex in San Fernando, which includes the Coffee Bean & The Tea Leaf, Pancake House, and Dencio’s.
New and Improved NLEX
To keep up with the heightened economic activities in Pampanga, the NLEX Corporation has recently enhanced the quality of San Fernando Interchange by building two new bridges crossing the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and widening the interchange ramps to four lanes in both directions.
The 64-km lane was opened to the public to facilitate an easy commute. Alongside the reconstructed San Fernando Interchange is a newly improved bus terminal operating daily for travels to Manila & the North, even including Cavite in the south.
Filipino & Chinese Airlines Expand to Clark
True to its reputation of being a viable alternative to NAIA, Clark International Airport has sealed a pact with Chinese Eastern Airlines, China’s second largest airline, to start flights between Clark and Shanghai starting October 2017. This partnership will have a positive impact in both the local business and tourism sectors as the Department of Tourism (DOT) regards China as the third largest market of Philippine tourism.
Also jumping on the bandwagon is the first Filipino-owned private airline, Iloilo-Negros Air Express Company (INAEC). An air charter company exclusive for business executives, foreign tourists, and high rollers, INAEC expands its operation in Clark Freeport because it sees Clark as a growth area at the crux of inevitable growth.
Development of Manila–Clark Railway System
A railway system plan that will connect Metro Manila to Clark Freeport is now underway and is expected to be completed by the last quarter of 2021. To be named Philippine National Railways (PNR) North 2, the Php255 million-project is expected to decongest Metro Manila and bring forth economic growth to regions north of the capital, particularly Central Luzon, where an estimated 11.2 million Filipinos reside and earn a living.
Proper Solid Waste Management System
In line with its solid waste management program, 15 towns in Pampanga received new dump trucks from the local government. The recipient towns include Floridablanca, Magalang, Lubao, Guagua, Sasmuan, Sta. Rita, Mexico, Sta. Ana, Apalit, Candaba, Sto. Tomas, San Luis, Porac, and Minalin. The distribution of new dump trucks is to ensure a clean and healthy environment conducive to the growing commercial and economic atmosphere in Pampanga.
