HA NOI (VNS) — Ha Noi People's Committee has approved a plan to build a 147 hectare urban development area south of Linh Dam Lake to house 7,800 people.
A main feature of the project will be skyscraper apartment buildings 35 storeys tall.
The development will be the last of four new urban construction projects to be built in the area.
There is one north of the lake, another at Phap Van-Tu Hiep and a fourth one southwest of Linh Dam Lake.
The new urban area south of the lake is between Hoang Liet Ward in Hoang Mai District, Tam Hiep Commune and Van Dien Township in Thanh Tri District.
Much of the area has been set aside for parking lots, schools, kindergartens, hospitals, public parks and sports areas.
Ha Noi People's Committee said that all high-rise buildings in the development must allocate at least two storeys for public purposes.
The highest buildings, which will reach 35 storeys, will be located in the centre of the area.
The committee will also invest in building social houses on 7.6 hectares, a commercial centre on 3.4 hectares and a hospital on 3 hectares.
Chairman of the committee, Nguyen The Thao, has asked the municipal Department of Planning and Construction to guide the Housing and Urban Development Corporation, the investor of the project, to quickly complete the planning of the project. — VNS
