Investor directs cessation of sales following inspection by Hanoi authorities.
The investor of the Discovery Complex II has asked distributors to stop selling apartments while it waits for Hanoi authorities to review planning and construction at the project.
The news was released to local media by the sales department at the Kinh Do TCI Group after the Discovery Complex II (also known as Kinh Do Tower) was inspected by the Hanoi People’s Committee at the request of the Prime Minister.
Located in No. 8B, Le Truc Street in Hanoi, the 17-storey complex has attracted a lot of attention as it is much taller than nearby historic buildings such as the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, the National Assembly Building, and Ho Chi Minh Museum.
The project has encountered many objections because of its height and sensitive location. Late last week the PM asked the Hanoi People’s Committee to check the execution of plans for the building.
The Discovery Complex II was introduced as a project within the administrative and political center of the capital, close to Ba Dinh Square, West Lake, the International Convention Center, the Temple of Literature, and St. Paul Hospital.
The project is a combination of a business center, office space, luxury apartments, and villas. It has 17 floors with an area of 1,900 sq m. The business center will cover five floors. Apartments will be located from the 6th floor upwards with views of Ba Dinh Square and the historic Hoang Thanh Thang Long area.
