i'm a hanoian
ok, Ciputra gets it own Thread...will repost some refined photos of Ciputra to have a nice collection here...
where did you see that documentary filmtq last summer you're back, how many apartment buildings had taken off ground?
from other model not this one, I counted the Ciputra had almost 60 buildings, ranging from 20-40 storeys tall.
If this project completed hanoi skyline will change dramatically.
on the 1990s documentary flim on Shanghai, the reporter said, she couldn't believe the rate of construction in Shanghai. "someday people will say New York is the Shanghai of USA"
who knew it came true......now I watched another documentary film, they said Shanghai is now 8 times larger than New YOrk..... that is so cool, only 16yrs time.
I wouldn't compare hanoi with the world yet, but with the construction rate in Hanoi, I think they will surpass Saigon very soon. because people in Saigon don't like to live in Apartments and the construction rate is so damn slow. they take 1 day at a time in saigon ya know.
Build to last? Are you kidding? See my Shantou thread on ssp city photos... even their buildings from 20-30 years ago are falling down already.WHen the Chinese build they build to last, build to impress, build to compete...
