    Megaworld Corp. and unit Global-Estate Resorts, Inc. (GERI) are jointly developing the 251-hectare  Arden Botanical Estate at the boundary of Trece Martires City and Tanza, Cavite.

    The P18-billion 15-year development will have residential and leisure villages, commercial areas, sports and adventure parks and a mixed-use district.

    ‘Arden Botanical Estate is a one-of-a-kind township development, which will be curated to engage and stimulate the senses. We will put design and aesthetics at the forefront, and function and purpose at the backbone of its planning,” said. Kevin Tan, Megaworld chief strategy officer.

    Half of the entire township will be allocated to  residential developments while the rest will be for commercial, institutional, recreational, and open spaces.

    Megaworld  said Arden Botanical Estate will be “highlighted by an expansive variety of gardens and natural parks around the development.”

    It will have its own flower farm, flower tunnel, and children’s garden and will be surrounded by natural rivers and organic gardens, as well as tree-lined roads and avenues, and lotus ponds.

    Arden Botanical Estate will include sustainability features such as the use of solar street lights, electric shuttles for transport, storm water recycling, permeable pavements for driveways and parking, and organic fertilizers and pesticides for gardens.

    Arden Botanical Estate will become Megaworld’s 25th township development, and GERI’s seventh lifestyle and tourism development.
