Tan, senior vice president and head of Megaworld Lifestyle Malls said, “We are excited to build the first-ever commercial development along the Negros Occidental’s tourism highway which is the Bacolod-Silay Airport Access Road.The Northill Town Center will surely become a destination not just for tourists and visitors of Negros, but also for Bacolodnons and Negrenses who want to unwind and relax from the busy city life. This major development will be an energizing move of the brand of ‘lifestyle mall’ Megaworld is creating in its various townships that are now made accessible to the people of the Province of Negros Occidental.
Almost third of the entire commercial development will be dedicated to green and open spaces. One of the highlights of this development is the town center’s ‘central plaza’ marked by a unique water feature. Also, another major landmark which will be added to the place will be a township iconic chapel.
The major architectural features of the development will be mostly modern contemporary with accents of organic wood and bricks to infuse a countryside feel.
Early next year, the construction of the NORTHILL TOWN CENTER will already start early and is expected to be completed early of 2018.
