Today marks the beginning of rising opportunities for the Freeport Area of Bataan. The groundbreaking of the FAB Central Terminal, that took place on Thursday, April 7, 2022, starts the construction and marketing for the project.
Atty. Christopher Ryan Tan, CEO of Hausland Group told Bataan newsmen that this central terminal facility will cater to all types of vehicles, linking the Freeport Area to the rest of Mariveles and neighboring towns.
It will not only decongest traffic in Mariveles, but also provide growth opportunities for businesses and convenience for commuters.
FAB Central is a mixed-use development project of a 5.9 hectare-property, birthed by the partnership of Hausland Group and the Authority of Freeport Area of Bataan (the “AFAB”).
It is divided into five major zones including a central transport terminal facility, a commercial mall area with several drive-thru prime retail commercial lots spaces, a heritage tourism spot featuring The Bataan Death March, Commercial offices area for tech-based companies, BPOS and POGOs and Interim dormitories convertible to hotels and recreation areas.
Bataan Governor Abet S. Garcia graced the event along with Vice Governor Cris Garcia, Bataan 2nd District Congressman Joet Garcia III, Hausland Group President and Chairman, Wilfredo M. Tan and the newly appointed Hausland Group CEO Atty. Christopher Ryan Tan, as well as the Authority of Freeport Area of Bataan Administrator Engr. Emmanuel Pineda and Deputy Administrator Alewijn Aidan K. Ong. Hausland Group, through its development brand, FIESTA Communities, has been developing affordable housing in Mariveles since 2018.
Now it seeks to play a part in the growth of the area and give back to the province and community through this project.
Wilfredo M. Tan, President and Chairman of Hausland Group, said after finding success in planting subdivision roots in the area, it is time to venture into commercial leasing projects.
