Description
BCDA (Bases Conversion & Development Authority) recognizes that the development of Clark Green City will generate thousands of jobs that may translate to the need of new housing units for the employees. The Clark Green City is a 9,450-hectare development that is envisioned to be the first smart and green city in the Philippines. Positioned strategically between highly urbanizing cities in Northern Luzon, as well as an international airport and a seaport, this newest city will become the focal point of economic development in the country within the next few years. Per the Clark Green City Concept Plan, the ideal employee/population ratio is 50-80%, hence the 800,000 projected employees for the CGC at full development in 50 years. In order to address the need, BCDA plans to provide mixed-income and affordable housing units, particularly for the low and middle income individuals/families who wish to live and work in the area.
