HÀ NỘI — The proposed construction of a parking lot and the Aeon Mall Hoàng Mai Trade centre will soon be decided upon by the Hà Nội People's Committee as Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc has approved the adjustment of the construction planning of the capital city.

Covering an area of 6ha, the project would be located behind Giáp Bát Station in Đại Ki, Thịnh Liệt and Hoàng Mai wards of Hoàng Mai District. The area would be organised under the transit-oriented development (TOD) model closely linked with the national railway, the urban railway No 1, Giáp Bát Station and Monorail M2.

In 2019, Aeon Mall Việt Nam Company Ltd, 27-7 General Service and Mechanical Manufacture Company Ltd and Xuân Nam Việt JSC proposed building a parking lot and Aeon Mall in Hoàng Mai District. The People’s Committee approved the project worth US$280.7 million in principle.

In a meeting between Secretary of the Hà Nội Party Committee Vương Đình Huệ and Aeon Mall on May 19, Tetsuyuki Nakagawa, general director of Aeon Mall Việt Nam, said they expected the group's largest project in Việt Nam so far to be approved soon.

On June 2,7 at an investment promotion conference, the project was granted an investment licence. The mall would be Aeon's third outlet in Hà Nội and sixth in Việt Nam. — VNS
