HCMC – Vinhomes JSC, which trades its VHM shares on the Hochiminh Stock Exchange, has been approved to be the investor of a large-scale residential area project in the northern port city of Haiphong.
The residential area project requires an estimated cost of over VND23,200 billion, equivalent to around US$1 billion.
According to the local authority’s decision, Vinhomes JSC would pour nearly VND3,500 billion, or 15% of the total investment, into the project, while the remaining VND19,700 billion would be mobilized from other sources.
This project is set to cover around 107 hectares in Hoa Nghia Ward, Duong Kinh District, and around 122 hectares in Kien Thuy District, adjacent to Highway 5B which connects Haiphong City with Hanoi and Quang Ninh Province.
The project consists of high-rise apartment units, 5,000 townhouses, and 1,300 villas. The project’s operational term is 50 years from the day Vinhomes receives land from the city.
