San Miguel Corporation (SMC) envisions its P740-billion New Manila International Airport project in Bulacan province as a “massive, green-designed, and future-ready” aerocity development — a model for green urbanism in the country.
The company on Tuesday released the conceptual master plan of the project prepared by renowned Architect Jun Palafox.
SMC president and chief executive officer Ramon Ang pointed out that the designs reflect the vision of a modern Philippines that provides built-in solutions to socio-economic, environmental and climate issues.
Based on the design, the project will utilize renewable energy and accommodate both traditional and alternative modes of transportation, as well as promote active and healthier lifestyles.
The airport city design will also adopt green architectural and green urbanism guidelines and follow structural codes of other countries similarly situated in earthquake zones like the Philippines.
The Aerocity project will have open spaces and utilize the latest in digital infrastructure.
