Strategic Vision: Scaling Up Megaworld’s Leasing Portfolio

Megaworld, the renowned property giant, is gearing up for an impressive leap in its leasing portfolio, aiming to soar to 3,000,000 square meters of gross leasable area (GLA) by 2030 for both Megaworld Premier Offices and Megaworld Lifestyle Malls. This visionary goal marks a staggering 52% increase in the company’s leasing portfolio by the end of 2023.

Forward-Thinking Roadmap: CEO Kevin L. Tan’s Insights

At the recent Annual Stockholders’ Meeting, Kevin L. Tan, the CEO of Alliance Global Group, Inc., disclosed Megaworld’s strategic roadmap. By 2030, the company anticipates expanding its gross leasable area for office spaces to 2,000,000 square meters, while the GLA for malls is projected to hit 1,000,000 square meters.

Investment in Growth: Capital Expenditure and Expansion Plans

“Fueling the growth of our malls and office segments over the next six years is pivotal to our ongoing expansion,” Tan emphasized. He highlighted the allocation of P55 billion for capital expenditure this year, a crucial component of the company’s comprehensive P350 billion five-year capex program initiated in 2023. This budget will drive the development of existing and upcoming townships, residential projects, investment properties, and land acquisitions.
