The city’s authorities have approved a plan to adjust a 1/500 plan for development of the combined Tan Thang Sports Complex and Residential Area in Son Ky ward of Tan Phu district.

The plan calls for combining the B2 and B3 blocks into a larger area to develop the Sai Gon Cultural and Tourism Village, designed to feature the cultural characteristics of the three regions (the north, the central and the south) of Vietnam.

The project includes areas showing the 300 years of history of Sai Gon – HCM City, with waterway landscapes featuring river ports docking large numbers of vessels and boats in the Mekong Delta.

The city People’s Committee approved the adjustment and enlargement of the B1 commercial and service area into A4 and A3 areas, into bigger B1-B4 commercial and service areas, to provide better services to residents in the project and surrounding areas.

The city authority also adjusted the height of buildings in the A1 area from 11 to 16 storeys, to reduce construction density, and to save more land for greenery and transportation infrastructure.

The municipal authority has also asked the People’s Committee of Tan Phu district to coordinate with relevant agencies on construction of Bo Bao Tan Thang and Le Trong Tan streets.

The Tan Phu district People’s Committee was told to map out plans for compensation for site clearance and support for families affected by construction of a new intersection on Le Trong Tan and Tan Quy streets.
