Thanh Da-Binh Quoi to Become Modern Eco-Tourism & Residential Area

Plans to turn Thanh Da – Binh Quoi zone in Binh Thanh District of Ho Chi Minh City into a modern eco-tourism & residential area have just been submitted to the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee for approval, according to the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Planning And Architecture.

The plan of modern eco-tourism and residential area in Binh Quoi - Thanh Da zone, Binh Thanh District, is waiting for the city's approval.
The new residential zone covering an area of more than 240 hectares includes apartment and office buildings, villas, public and specialized facilities including colleges, universities and areas for exhibitions, conventions and commerce, along with shops, restaurants, medical clinics, parks, lakes, sports and entertainment facilities, etc.

The investor is particularly interested in the construction of parks, which will occupy over 150 hectares, especially natural eco-parks surrounding the urban zone along the Sai Gon River. Such parks aim to make residents more comfortable and reduce stress. The population of the area is estimated at nearly 30,000, with 500,000 people visiting for work or pleasure every day.

The city authorities will improve and enlarge the traffic system whilst focusing on construction of flood control dikes, new roads and bridges linking the new urban area with districts Thu Duc and 2.

Construction of the new urban area must respect the regulations of planning and architecture. The architecture must be an impressive mix of traditional and modern design as well as being aesthetically pleasing.
