Program

The new Son Tay urban area is structured to be more compact, more authentic, more connected and better defined by its cultural and natural heritage. Traditional and new building types such as rowhouses, villas, high-rise condos, high-tech farms, agricultural R&D labs, and iconic cultural centers are centered around main routes and mass transit hubs connecting to downtown Hanoi. Heritage sites such as Son Tay Citadel are made important parts of the urban fabric. Waterways, lakes, mountains and agricultural fields are to be preserved as natural treasures and eco-tourism resources.

Description

The goal is to create a sustainable city of the 21st Century.
