ACLA design a masterplan that will not only benefit the city, but also the wider region
The 366 ha project is located to the west of Vietnam's Capital Hanoi and is to become part of the city's new satellite developments in accordance with the overall Hanoi Masterplan. Its flat site conditions have excellent connectivity to major new developments in the city, including the new political centre as well as the airport. It is surrounded by future residential development.
The proposed masterplan utilises the site conditions, understanding of the local market and aspirations of the client, to develop a diverse and masterplan for a self sufficient development node that not only serves the site, but also its future surroundings. It is envisioned to function as a regional services hub with provision of a conference and exhibition centre, cultural and community centre next to a mix of residential offerings. Land uses have been located and placed strategically to create mutual benefit and promote pedestrian accessibility and linkages to public amenities. The central park that bisects the site in accordance to the overall Hanoi Masterplan is proposed to be brought into the development, providing the ‘urban staple' linking the northern and southern development. The site's low lying conditions are respected and utilised to create diverse residential development parcels and shop houses and F&B along existing canals providing a vernacular and local tradition.
Overall the masterplan has been proposed to be developed in 5 different districts, all with their own uniquely different character, ranging from the urban exhibition centre area, the mixed use commercial spine, luxury housing in gated communities to community oriented linked house area and apartment parcels. Public open space and waterways and waterfronts interlink these different neighbourhoods and provide a masterplan for the development to become a self-sustaining development that not only services itself but the wider region.
