HOCHIMINH | Saigon South Urban Development News

Saigon South is an urban vision for Vietnam in the new millennium, an answer to the need for expansion of HCMC with international standard planning and realization.
Saigon South is a mixed residential and commercial urban development covering 3,300 hectares (8,154 acres) south of HCMC.







Saigon south is, incredibly, located in the south of the city, and it is literally right on the edge of the city, forming the new frontier of HCMC as it slowly spreads into the surrounding countryside. Drive down to the far end of PMH and turn right at the FV hospital towards the Korean, Japanese and Taipei International Schools and you can plainly see where the city ends and the countryside begins. This area is growing steadily and new buildings are appearing everywhere.

Phu My Hung Corporation has recently decided to invest in building a 10-ha semicircle trade and service complex, local media reported.
The semicircle is a spot of new trading and financial center comprising of Semicircle Lake, Canal Area and International Trade and Finance Area.
The complex will be divided into three divisions, namely high-ranking trade center and hotel area; general service area for apartment, eating and drinking and entertainment; and restaurant and spa area.
The semicircle lake will be built in two phases. In the first phase scheduled for this year, work will start on low stories and shopping service with combined area of 30,000 sq.m and 87,000 sq.m of apartment for rent.
The company will build high stories for sale and lease in the second phase.
The semicircle lake is the first place in Vietnam building flyover bridges without link with some high buildings, facilitating consumers’ transport and creating good scenery.

that 'Semicircle' lake should be translated to "Halfmoon" lake, it's more correct.

I don't know clearly, Some experts believe that the new law allowing foreigners to own property in Vietnam.Under the pilot scheme on allowing foreigners to buy houses in Vietnam, 21,000 of 81,000 foreigners who have been working and living in Vietnam since 2004 will be eligible to own property. For further information, please contact the Vietnamese embassy in your country.
