Planning released for new functional area in Nam Tu Liem district, with green space a focus.
The Hanoi Department of Planning and Architecture (HDPA) announced the detailed construction planning on a scale of 1/500 of a functional area in Nam Tu Liem district on December 14.
On a total area of 318,711 sq m in Me Tri Ward, the functional area includes space for trees, a lake, public facilities, residential properties, and a commercial area.
According to HDPA’s planning the green space is a key factor of the functional area.
The land area for developing low-rise residential housing such as cottages and garden houses is 69,170 sq m and the commercial area, including shopping malls, service areas, and office space, is 19,909 sq m.
The highlight of the functional area is high-rise residential buildings of 34-40 storeys, on whose roofs trees will be planted. The buildings are designed to face the lake, which will help to limit noise from nearby arterial roads.
The functional area will also feature public facilities such as schools, entertainment and recreation areas, healthcare services, and a square, among others.
HDPA’s planning is targeted to create a new modern urban space that is synchronous with the technical infrastructure, architecture, environment, and social infrastructure of neighboring projects now under construction.
The planned functional area is also expected to contribute to the development of Hanoi and its general planning orientation to 2030 and vision to 2050.
