HÀ NỘI — The construction of a VNĐ300 billion (US$13.19 million) entertainment complex in Rạch Giá City in Mekong Delta’s Kiên Giang Province started on Saturday.
The 40,000 square metre park is part of the Phú Cường Kiên Giang Ocean Urban Complex, one of the largest projects in Mekong Delta, which includes a hospital, a shopping centre, an international school, and a sport-entertainment complex.
The project is expected to help make tourism a leading revenue-generating sector for the province by 2020.
Huỳnh Hà Phương, director general of Phú Cường Kiên Giang Investment Joint Stock Company, said the entertainment complex has 12 sections: a 2,500 square metre water park, a sun wheel, a marina, a golf course, a 6000sq.m sea-view square, two tennis courts, two swimming pools, two indoor badminton courts, a gym, a game area and a helicopter pad.
The high-end complex, located on the 30-hectare manmade Phú Gia island, is scheduled to open to the public three years after start of construction.
The VNĐ2.2 trillion artificial island is being planned as a modern and stunning piece of architecture. It took the company one year to level 90 per cent of the ground and build the embankment. As a sea-encroaching urban area, it will have upmarket sea-view villas, five-star hotels, seaside resorts and a yacht port.
Around 30.4 per cent of the 30 hectares will be used to build houses, 14.47 per cent of the land will be allocated for trade and services, 29.95 per cent will be a green zone and the rest of the land will be used for transport.
Since 1997, Phú Cường, one of Việt Nam’s leading companies specialising in seafood processing exports, has implemented three sea reclamation projects in Rạch Giá City, expanding the city by another 550 hectares. — VNS
