HCM CITY — The People’s Committee of HCM City has approved the adjustment of the city's Northwestern Urban Area plan proposed by the city’s Department of Urban Planning and Architecture.
The area to be adjusted covers over 6,000ha, including Tân Thới Nhì Commune in Hóc Môn District, the communes of Tân An Hội, Phước Hiệp, Tân Phú Trung and Tân Thông Hội and Củ Chi Town in Củ Chi District, the Tây Bắc Solid Waste Treatment Complex, and An Hạ and Thầy Cai canals.
The adjustment plan calls for the use of greenery on the uncultivated land and construction of sports grounds on the uncultivated land for residential areas, and the use of greenery and water surfaces to create spacious recreational areas for residents.
Vice Chairman of HCM City People’s Committee Võ Văn Hoan instructed relevant agencies to consider the opinions of Củ Chi residents and the Củ Chi District People’s Committee when making adjustments of the existing residential areas in the region.
New residential areas will be located along main road axis.
Infrastructure will be fully developed for new residential areas, creating favourable conditions for sustainable development of new urban areas and making them attractive to investors.
High-rises in new residential areas will be located along the road axes, including the National Highway No 22 and the road along Metro Line No 2 (which links Bến Thành Market in District 1 with Tham Lương Bus Terminal in District 12 and Củ Chi District).
Buildings for commercial and service centres will be located in the centre of the urban area near Metro Line No 2 stations.
The Northwestern Urban Area will be a centre for trade, health, cultural, education, sport and entertainment services and is expected to have a population of some 300,000 residents by 2025.
An industrial park will be built in the city's Northeastern Urban Area for "clean" industries that use high technologies and advanced engineering.
