Shophouse District

Shophouse District

Shophouse District The master stroke that makes Boracay Newcoast a work of art is its blend of old and new, organic and deliberate, rugged and refined. Headed by the chief executive of Global-Estate Resorts Inc., a team of master planners traveled the globe to find inspiration for the community’s Shophouse and Boutique Hotel districts.

These two seaside districts, virtually shaped by the most beautiful destinations in the world, offer a nod to the aesthetic and architecture of Oia and Fira in Santorini, Greece; Ibiza, Marbella and Barcelona in Spain; Key West, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Miami, Martha’s Vineyard, Santa Monica and San Diego in the United States; and Bali and Phuket in Asia.

The structure is three stories in height, with a narrow face and a long length. The bottom floor has been designed to accommodate a commercial enterprise such as a shop, restaurant, cofee shop etc., while the upper floor or floors are intended for residential use.

The shophouse is designed to be built in a terraced design, with a row of shophouses abutting each other along a street. Each shophouse shares walls with the neighboring structures.
