MANILA, Philippines – Megaworld, the real estate firm of tycoon Andrew L. Tan announced on Monday, November 2 that its newest development will be a 31-hectare leisure and entertainment township in Entertainment City, Parañaque.

To be called Westside City, it will house the second Resorts World property in the Philippines, scheduled for completion by the last quarter of 2020. It will also be home to Megaworld’s upscale residential condominiums and a luxury mall.

Westside City will also be the site for international hotel brands such as The Westin Hotel of Starwood Asia; Pacific Hotels & Resorts Group; Hotel Okura Manila of the Okura Hotels & Resorts; the Genting Grand and Crockfords Tower of the Genting Group; and Kingsford Hotel. These hotels will have a total of around 1,500 rooms.
