ĐÀ NẴNG — Đà Nẵng’s construction department has asked the investor of the Bạch Đằng Hotel complex to dismantle illegal construction connected to the twin Bạch Đằng Hotel-Hilton Luxury Apartment complex on Bạch Đằng street.
Chief inspection of the construction department Lê Văn Tuấn said the project investor – the Bạch Đằng Hotel and Service Joint Stock Company – had intentionally built a 200sq.m shopping area on the façade of the twin-building project without seeking permission.
Tuấn said the department’s inspection agency also fined the investor VNĐ110 million (US$4,700) for their violations and asked them to demolish the unlicensed shopping area in the building’s garden area.
The hotel-luxury apartment project, which covers 6,900sq.m in downtown Hải Châu District with total investment of VNĐ700 billion ($31 million) from 2012, comprises a twin-tower including a 29-storey hotel and a 25-storey apartment and office building.
A series of illegal construction projects have been found in the city since early 2018 as investors intentionally built or expanded projects without permission or licences, including the Eden Hotel project, the entertainment CocoBay complex, the Mường Thanh Apartment project and The Song-Đà Nẵng Beach Villa. — VNS
