According to a statement, Saigon Sports City is a 64-hectare township that Keppel Land is developing in the prime District 2 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, in collaboration with Keppel Urban Solutions. “It is envisaged to be a bustling hub, combining modern and sustainable urban living with vibrant and healthy lifestyles, which can be a model for other urban developments in Asia. The total development cost for Saigon Sports City is projected to be more than $700m (US$500m),” Keppel said.
The company also noted that the integrated township will comprise about 4,300 premium homes and include features such as a waterfront boulevard, an open public plaza and a one-stop lifestyle hub with comprehensive facilities for sports, entertainment, shopping and dining. “In addition, biophilic design principles will be incorporated into the development, such as natural lighting and ventilation, a linear park, vertical greenery and picturesque water features with natural filtration, to create a green and beautiful environment,” it added.
