This will include 430,000sq.m of social housing projects and 348,000sq.m of resettlement projects, while the rest will be commercial housing projects.
The municipal department said it would initiate measures to remove obstacles and promote the development of the real estate market. It would also strive to create conditions for developers to diversify products as well as adjust the planning of scales of housing projects to meet the market demand.

The average housing area per head is 25.6sq.m and the city plans to increase it to 26.3sq.m by 2020.
The city has placed orders with developers to develop commercial housing projects for resettlement purposes, including a project in Linh Đàm and six others. This is aimed at encouraging developers to invest in resettlement housing projects.
Social housing projects of Hà Nội are concentrated in five areas, namely Tiên Dương in Đông Anh District, Cổ Bi in Gia Lâm, Ngọc Hồi in Thanh Trì, and Cổ Nhuế 2 and EcoHome 3 in Bắc Từ Liêm. — VNS
