Vietnam as a country has never been a place that has been stuck in the past. No matter what has happened it has always adapted and evolved. Even before the country was admitted to the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2007, Vietnam was gathering full momentum into modernity. Structural reforms like the government's pro-business policies, political stability, as well as the spending of nine to ten percent of the country's GDP in recent years on infrastructure in areas like electricity, water, telecommunications and transport have all helped to move the country forward immensely.
To add to that, the highly competitive workforce and one of the youngest demographics in Asia have transformed Vietnam into one of the fastest-growing economies in the region. The Vietnamese government estimates that the country’s gross domestic product will grow by about 5% in 2009.
The real estate fundamentals in Vietnam remain sound notwithstanding the current challenges facing global economies. The demand for quality homes and apartment living in Vietnam continues to increase. Much of this demand is underpinned by the country's growing young and educated population who aspire to own quality homes in good locations. CapitaLand is well-positioned to benefit from this upwardly mobile population and will have a total of more than 3,000 residential apartments in prime locations in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. "The Vista, our maiden project in Vietnam, is currently under construction. It will bear the CapitaLand hallmarks of quality in terms of design, layout, finishes and landscaping," says Mr Chen Lian Pang, CEO (Southeast Asia), CapitaLand Commercial Limited.
A Unique Product for a Unique Country
Relax and unwind at unparalleled lifestyle amenities amidst the beautifully landscaped gardens
The Vista, in Ho Chi Minh City, is a striking example of the modern architecture being built in Vietnam today. Designed by Singapore based architect company, RSP Architecture Planners & Engineers (Pte) Ltd, the condominium project sits on a sprawling 23,000-square metre site located in the prime residential An Phu Ward in District 2.
The Vista will be distinguishing itself from other residential projects in the city in terms of design, landscape features, finishes, and amenities. The project comprises five towers with steel and glass features and a few streaks of colour running from top to bottom highlighting the lines of the buildings perfectly. These elegant, glistening towers sit amidst extensive, verdant landscaped grounds with hidden gardens with serene water-features wonderfully planned by landscape creators Tierra Designs (S) Pte Ltd., which has managed to meld nature and modernity to great effect.
With the towers being 28-storeys high, most of the 850 units of residential apartments and serviced residences offer breathtaking views of the Saigon River and sweeping views of the ever-burgeoning cityscape. The linear design of the towers ensures good natural ventilation and large floor-to-ceiling windows fill the generously sized residential apartments with lots of daylights. These coupled with high ceilings creates a light, spacious and airy feel to each apartment.
Setting the Scene for Great Living
Neutral colour palette allows for easy personalization
Two-, three- and four-bedroom apartment types, and penthouses range in size from 101 square metres to 472 square metres. In a continuing mix of modern and natural, glass and wood are the materials of choice for the interior finishes. A neutral colour palette accentuates the feeling of space and provides a blank canvass for homeowners to personalise their new residence easily. Top-notch fixtures and fittings also set the scene for a play on contemporary luxury.
Luxury persists in the lifestyle offered to residents at The Vista, with its unparalleled amenities. In addition to the vast steam and sauna equipped clubhouse, are tennis court and a 50-metre lap pool to keep residents in the fittest of shape. Wooden decks with ample shade provided by leafy trees, border the swimming pool providing a cool respite from the tropical heat. There will even be a putting green for those who are happiest with a golf club in hand. Ensuring that there is something for each age group, a children's pool and playground complete the outdoor amenities.
Perfectly Placed Today and Tomorrow
Tasteful interiors set the scene for luxurious modern living
Further enhancing the lifestyle offered, The Vista is the perfect location for people who need to be close to the city. An Phu Ward is a quiet residential neighborhood popular with both affluent locals and expatriates alike. For families looking to relocate here, the area is home to prestigious educational establishments such as British International School Ho Chi Minh City, The Australian International Saigon School and International School of Ho Chi Minh City.
Leisure amenities, cafes, restaurants and a Metro Hypermarket are all conveniently located close by. Less then six kilometres from the Central Business District and conveniently accessible via the Hanoi Highway or upcoming new route through Saigon East-West Highway, the excitement of the city is just a stone's throw away.
Bringing together serenity, comfort and convenience in perfect harmony, The Vista will be a much-coveted community to live in. The Vista is a premium residential development in Ho Chi Minh City jointly developed by the CapitaLand Group, Thien Duc Trading Construction Co., Ltd and Phu Gia Investment Joint Stock Company.
