Environmental protection including waste treatment and pollution created by exhaust fumes, has been taken into careful consideration with the development. The park used to be a cemetery, so mud and soil from the area will be treated in accordance with environmental protection regulations.

It is estimated that approximately 28 of the 1,081 trees in the park will be cut down to make space for the construction. To compensate for this loss, at least 36 trees of the same type will be planted upon the completion of the project.

Investors of the project have requested that the relevant agencies and officials pay close attention during the construction progress and carefully supervise the contractors’ operations.

Once construction is complete, the 5.9 hectare Le Van Tam Park will have a three-floor parking space, with a total area of 8.58 hectares. The parking lot will be able to accommodate 1,255 cars and 1,450 motorbikes.
