Amid mountains and greenery in Capas, Tarlac, construction cranes and frames of buildings reach high on leveled earth.

Construction of the New Clark City is currently underway. The project is envisioned to become a green, sustainable, and disaster-resilient city.

 Development of the 9,450-hectare metropolis is also seen as an alternative for economic activity to congested Metro Manila. 

The first phase of construction currently consists of government buildings, a river park, and a sports complex which will be used in time for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.

Here are select images of the ongoing developments of the New Clark City.
