HÀ NỘI — Buildings in areas along Belt Road No 3 could rise up to 50 storeys, according to the urban design project which was introduced by the Hà Nội Department of Planning and Architecture on Tuesday.
The project is for a 4.22km-long belt road running from Khuất Duy Tiến to Nguyễn Xiển streets and covering 61.68ha.
On Khuất Duy Tiến Street, the project encouraged the development of office and residential housing, which could be 50 storeys in height.
For the Thanh Xuân intersection where Khuất Duy Tiến, Nguyễn Trãi and Nguyễn Xiển streets meet, mixed-use commercial projects were encouraged to exploit advantages from the metro line.
On Nguyễn Xiển Street, residential housing projects with an average height of 25-30 storeys were also suggested.
According to the department, the setting up of urban design along the Belt Road 3 will help renovate and coordinate the organisation of landscape on both sides of the road to ensure a harmony between architectural space, urban landscape between the existing construction and the new one, creating a modern, dynamic and civilised Hà Nội urban centre.
Land used in urban design along Ring Road 3 will be managed in accordance with the zoning plan and detailed planning approved by the competent authority.
The high-rise buildings on the southeast of Trần Duy Hưng Street and Thăng Long Avenue, will be the highlight of the project.
Belt Ring Road No 3 is an important road traffic route of Hà Nội. With a length of about 65 km, it runs through such districts as Đông Anh, Bắc Từ Liêm, Nam Từ Liêm, Cầu Giấy, Thanh Xuân, Thanh Trì, Hoàng Mai and Gia Lâm. — VNS
