HCM CITY — HCM City Party Committee secretary Le Thanh Hai on Monday handed over keys to new apartments to 620 families whose houses were demolished to make way for the Thu Thiem New Urban Area in District 2.
Hai told them the city appreciated their contrib-utions to the city's devel-opment, and was respon-sible for providing them with good living conditions.
Seven months ago, 512 other families were handed possession of apartments in the same resettlement area.
The 17.3-hectare area in An Phu Ward comprises a total of 1,844 apartments, which the builder, Nam Rach Chiec Company, started constructing in 2008.
The municipal Department of Construction said the quality of the apartments matched those in the Phu My Hung New Urban Area.
The District 2 People's Committee has so far allotted 2,300 apartments and 850 land lots for resettled families. — VNS
