It was once known as Prey Nokor prior to annexation by the Vietnamese in the 17th century. Under the name Saigon, it was the capital of the French colony of Cochinchina and later of the independent republic of South Vietnam 1955–75.
The metropolitan area, which consists of the Ho Chi Minh City metropolitan area, Thu Dau Mot, Biên Hòa, Vung Tau, DiAn, Thuan An and surrounding towns, is populated by about 10 million people, making it the most populous metropolitan area in Vietnam. The city’s population is expected to grow to 13.9 million by 2025.
The new urban development is located in one of the most important axis if the City, Nguyen Van Linh parkways. The 42 Ha site will be transformed into a new green residential community with terraced apartments, villas and townhouse, public facilities and a commercial center. The main strategy of the master plan is to create a central park with several water features and swimming pools, functioning as the main natural corridors as well offering all facilities and amenities for the residents. The park is also the connection between the villa zone and the high rise zone, providing a green buffer and a privacy zone for the villas.
The terrace garden apartments are designed to maximize the views while creating sky parks at different levels, offering place for relaxation for the community. Several units are designed to have large terraces for the life outdoor, increasing the value of the development.
The master plan accommodates 976,000 m2 of GFA, with an average plot ratio of 2,33, achieving density while preserving the quality of the green and public space.
