New Clark City will soon have a modern super station complete with charging terminals for electric vehicles (EVs) and a retail center.

Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) President and Chief Executive Officer Joshua M. Bingcang said this promises to bring additional revenues for the government, provide future employment opportunities for the local community, and boost foot traffic in the rising metropolis. 

Bingcang recently signed a contract with Double 11 Properties Corp. President Romeo Siccion for the long-term lease of a one-hectare property in New Clark City, intended to be developed into a full-service station. 

This marks the first partnership in New Clark City for a development of this kind.

“The BCDA welcomes Double 11 to New Clark City and offers its full support for the project. With this engagement, we expect economic benefits, such as additional revenues for the government; employment opportunities for the local residents and communities, and most importantly increased foot traffic in New Clark City,” BCDA Vice President for Business Development Mark P. Torres said during the signing ceremony.

With the contract now finalized, Double 11 commits to invest at least Php100 million for the development of the facility, which will include charging terminals for EVs, a mixed-use commercial complex, and retail support businesses. The company has also expressed interest to implement a Phase 2 expansion covering another hectare, with an additional investment of Php100 million, totaling their investment commitment to Php200 million.

The super station is expected to house over 20 retail stores and offices, serving an estimated 200,000 motorists annually, and creating about 500 jobs for the residents of Tarlac and nearby communities. It is also estimated to generate Php100 million in revenues for the government.

“With BCDA, we are bringing our international brand partners here to provide an excellent service to motorists. Using our experience and expertise, we will not only be developing a super station, but also a lifestyle development where people can park, dine, shop, and work,” said Ren Siccion, Double 11’s Business Development Manager. 

“This partnership signals another milestone in the development of New Clark City as a smart and green metropolis, one that is ready for a future filled with electric vehicles and eco-friendly cars. This is also a step towards our ‘15-minute city’ vision for New Clark City, where basic amenities and facilities are easily accessible within a walking or cycling distance,” BCDA President and Chief Executive Officer Joshua M. Bingcang said.
