HCMC – The 2,870-hectare Can Gio coastal tourism and urban area will need an estimated VND76 trillion to build its infrastructure.

The coastal district of Can Gio has completed a report on the adjustment of the 1/5000 subdivision planning of the Can Gio coastal tourism and urban area.

The project in Long Hoa Commune and Can Thanh Town was approved five years ago but now needs to be revised to make it appropriate for the current situation.

Once approved, the revised planning will be a foundation for preparing a detailed plan and setting up work for investment and construction.

The project still has five subdivisions, A, B, C, D and E, with a population of over 228,000 people. However, some contents relating to the water surface, public beaches, land for tourism, resorts and golf courses of subdivisions A, B, C and D would be adjusted.

Under the revision, the land area of subdivision A would be increased from 771 to 954 hectares which will function as an amusement area including a theme park, golf courses, resorts and commercial centers.

Meanwhile, the 659-hectare subdivision B would be developed as a cultural, sports establishment and stadium complex.

At the gateway to the urban area, there would be public works such as parking lots, hospitals, schools, offices and hotels.

Subdivisions C and D, with a total area of 798 hectares, include sports yards, square and multifunctional works, schools and commercial centers.

Subdivision E has 457 hectares of land that would be used for an open space, an artificial beach and irrigation canals.

In June 2020, the Government approved the revised investment policy to expand the Can Gio urban area with a total area of nearly 3,000 hectares and at a total cost of VND217 trillion. The project would be developed by the Can Gio Tourist City Corporation with a life span of 50 years.

Can Gio, 50 kilometers from downtown HCMC, is the only coastal district of the city with a coastline of 23 kilometers.
