Elevating urban citizens’ quality of life and creating new green living spaces are one of the most crucial priorities of the Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) Department of Construction (DoC). More infrastructures to be completed and put into operations particularly, preserving the remaining rare green living spaces in central districts is even more critical.
The city is “craving” for greens
According to the adjustment of Ho Chi Minh City's construction master plan to 2025 approved by the Prime Minister, the total green area of the whole city is about 6,259 ha corresponding to the green land planning target of about 6.3 square metres (sqm)/person.
However, the Technical Infrastructure Management Center - Department of Construction of Ho Chi Minh City has reported that the city currently has 508,561 ha of parkland supplying for 9 million people, which means only 0.55 sqm/person on average. This statistic is much lower than the approved plan and is only 1/16 times of Singapore (8 sqm of parks, and trees for each person).
According to the energy experts, developing modern and green buildings is Singapore's key strategy. Singapore is also one of the leading countries that focus on providing a new green cover to lands which were full of sand and barren. 15 years ago, the country also introduced the "green building" criterion, scoring construction projects based on their sophisticated, efficient, and high-standard environmental design features.
In Ho Chi Minh City, the number of high-rise buildings and vehicles are increasing rapidly, especially in central districts such as District 1. The AQI index, Air Quality Index, on average in Ho Chi Minh City sometimes reaches 177, nearly reaching the purple threshold – predicting health hazards, increases of pollution, and particle pollution. The urban citizens living in the city are now more than ever, craving for greens.

The appeal of “green living” real estate in the central districts
With limited land fund in the city, especially in the central districts, focusing on green areas in residential developments is gradually being forgotten. A very few developers are willing to "sacrifice" the "precious" land fund in the central districts to invest in space and utilities that create a green living environment for residents.
Hence, the introduction of ZENITY, a close-to-nature luxury residence from CapitaLand, is well-received and sought after by many customers who are looking for a hassle-free home. As one of the limited projects developed by a reputable developer with full legality and located at the CBD, the fully furnished property embraces a new greenery living and ‘zen-in-the-city’ experience for its residents by indulging in stylish interiors and resort-style amenities.
