HCM CITY — Ascendas-Singbridge Group and its joint venture partner Saigon Bund Capital Partners yesterday (November 1) handed over the first office tower at the OneHub Saigon in District 9 to its first tenants, IKEA Purchasing & Logistics Southeast Asia and AAH Corporation.
The six-storey tower, which has a total lettable area of 10,199sq.m, has attracted strong leasing interest from companies in the information technology, business process outsourcing, finance, and back office outsourcing sectors, according to the developers.
Kim Lindell, regional manager, IKEA Purchasing & Logistics Southeast Asia, said: “IKEA wants to have a positive impact on people and the planet. Moving our office to a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified building at OneHub Saigon is aligned with this strategy.” LEED is a global green building certificate.
Nguyễn Văn Hùng, board member, AAH Corporation, said his company decided to move its office to OneHub Saigon since “we would like our colleagues to experience a brand-new working environment where collaboration and creativity are promoted. The location is also convenient for us to commute to our representative office in CBD.”
The 12-hectare OneHub Saigon has seven office towers, a mixed-use commercial block, an education centre, and recreational amenities with sustainable features. — VNS
