HCMC – The HCMC government has plans to develop more multi-storey workshop buildings in several industrial and export processing zones after the success of such structures in Tan Thuan Export Processing Zone in the city’s District 7.

Tan Thuan Co Ltd on February 3 put an eight-storey workshop building into operation in Tan Thuan Export Processing Zone, bringing the total number of multi-storey workshop buildings in the zone to four. Each building can offer business or production space for several companies, especially small- and medium-sized ones.

The workshop building, developed at a cost of nearly US$7 million, offers full amenities for tenants like elevators, parking lot, power stations, backup electricity generators, fire prevention system and standard lighting system. Having a total floor area of 22,852 square meters and ceiling heights of 4-5 meters, it is the largest workshop building in the country at present.

The workshop building was built of reinforced concrete with the strong floor able to support heavy machinery at between 600 kilos and one ton per square meter, thus suitable for manufacturing businesses. Managed by Savills Vietnam, the modern building also provides office spaces.

According the investor, four enterprises had signed rental agreements before the workshop building is complete while three other multi-storey workshop buildings in Tan Thuan Export Processing Zone are full.

Tsao Chung Hung, general director of Tan Thuan Co Ltd, said the multi-storey workshop building is suitable for small and medium enterprises as they can rent 500 to thousands of square meters, and enterprises active in supporting industries that need their facilities to be close to multinational corporations in industrial parks or export processing zones.

Beside Tan Thuan Export Processing Zone, HCMC will also pilot multi-storey workshop buildings in Hiep Phuoc Industrial Park, Linh Trung Export Processing Zone, Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP) and others. The building would have 3-8 floors, with areas designed for tenants ranging from 100 to 3,000 square meters.

Nguyen Hoang Nang, director of the HCMC Export Processing and Industrial Zones Authority (HEPZA), said the multi-storey workshop building model has just appeared in Vietnam recently but it holds high potential and will boom in the coming time.

According to the HCMC government, the multi-storey workshop building helps the city optimize land use, develop supporting industries and lure more investors.
