The new urban zone of Thủ Thiêm is the flagship project of HCMC. Envisaged as an extension of the city centre on the east bank of the Saigon river and anticipated to be complete by 2025, it is destined to become a service, finance and trade centre of high quality. The project covers an area of nearly 750 ha and aims to develop a modern and attractive new urban centre for the city.
Phú Mỹ Hưng
The new urban zone of Phú Mỹ Hưng is a major achievement of modern urban development. Lying to the south of Saigon, Phú Mỹ Hưng constitutes one of the most typical expressions of Vietnamese urban settlement in the 21st century, featuring contemporary architectural forms, a mix of functions and uses and attention to the environment. The project thus comprises an important tool in the city’s urban strategy, offering a showcase for its economic development and affirming its status as a major Southeast Asian city.
