Thủ Thiêm New Urban Area
The urban area covers an area of 7 square kilometres and consists of several sections: residences, pools, parks and office sections. Almost all buildings here are to be of 10 to 40-story. Once completed, this new urban area will replace District 1 as the city's center. This new urban area is connected with the existing downtown with several bridges and a 6-lane tunnel.
Schedule and investment
The project is being carried out in stages, and is scheduled to be completed in 15 years, depending on the investment capital. Priority is given to the infrastructure investors with favorable assistance for the city government as well as preferential taxation.
