HA NOI (VNS) — The Le Truc Garment Joint Stocks Company, the investor of the 8B Le Truc Building Project, yesterday submitted plans to demolish illegally built floors atop the building.

The plan was delivered to the People's Committee of Ha Noi's Dien Bien Ward.

The move came after the Ha Noi Construction Department ordered the investor to propose a solution that includes demolishing the floors before 5pm, November 15.

The committee will report to the People's Committee of Ba Dinh District and authorised agencies to verify the proposed plans before allowing the building demolition to assure they meet regulations.

Further, the People's Committee of Dien Bien Ward was assigned to co-operate with other agencies to supervise the demolition work and ensure investors obeyed all rules, including not polluting the nearby area during the work, while maintaining the safety of nearby residents, the department said.

In a related move, the Ha Noi Inspectorate Agency recently announced a decision to determine the responsibility of those individuals and organisations who were responsible for the illegal construction.

The 69m-tall building complex, which has a trade centre, offices for lease and high-end apartments for sale, rises 53m above the ground and has underground basements that measure 16m in height.

The building, located in No 8B Le Truc Street, is 16m higher than the height stipulated in the licence issued to the project by the Ha Noi Department of Construction in March 2014, and its gross floor area is 6,900m² more than permitted. — VNS
