Introduction Prologue During its 300 year history, Ho Chi Minh City has evolved from a small riverbank settlement north of the Mekong Delta into a thriving metropolis of over 6 million people. Today, Ho Chi Minh City continues to be defined by its relationship with the water. Where the Saigon River once formed an edge of the city, the development of Thu Thiem – an existing 657-hectare peninsula of mangroves and canals located across from the historic city center – will transform the river into the heart of the city. Over the past 8 years the city has overseen a number of critical initiatives that have set the course for the realization of Thu Thiem - In 2003, an international design competition was held by the master developer of Thu Thiem – the Investment and Construction Authority of Thu Thiem New Urban Area (ICA) – for a plan that would create a bold, new mixed-use district for Ho Chi Minh City. Sasaki Associates of Boston, Massachusetts submitted the winning scheme which focused on a sustainable framework of transportation, land use, and public spaces that integrated the site’s existing ecological conditions. Sasaki’s plan for The Thu Thiem represented the contemporary evolution of the city’s extraordinary bond with the Saigon River. Today, the Master Plan continues to serve as a model for the long-term sustainable growth of Ho Chi Minh City. - In 2004 and 2005, the ICA and Sasaki embarked on a collaborative and detailed design process, including seminars with key stakeholders and agencies, which culminated in the approved 1:2000 Thu Thiem Master Plan and Urban Design Guidelines. - In 2008, Sasaki managed and juried an international design competition for the Central Plaza, Crescent Park, and Saigon River Pedestrian Bridge elements of the project. Important “10% Infrastructure Planning” also took place in 2008, with a focus on overall Thu Thiem utility facilities and networks to support the Sasaki Master Plan. - In 2011, the ICA hired Sasaki to prepare a 1:2000 Master Plan “Adjustment” to incorporate new development proposals and strategies since the approved Master Plan of 2005. The year-long process included a series of seminars with stakeholders and agencies to review and confirm all Master Plan and Urban Design Guideline refinements. The following report is a comprehensive summary of the 1:2000 Master Plan Adjustment work prepared by Sasaki Associates in 2011-2012 for the Investment and Construction Authority of Thu Thiem.

1:2000 Master Plan Adjustment: Purpose and Goals Since the creation of the approved 2005 Master Plan, numerous developers and investment groups have come forward with plans to develop key parcels at Thu Thiem. In a response to these varied proposals – and to create a more detailed plan and program for Thu Thiem that maintains the core principles of the original Master Plan - the ICA created an RFP for services to prepare a “1:2000 Master Plan and Urban Design Guidelines Adjustment”. Based on a “Statement of Services” dated July 2, 2009 and submitted to the Ho Chi Minh City’s People’s Committee by the ICA, the adjustment effort addresses the following key topics: - Respond to evolving market conditions in HCMC - Facilitate the development process at Thu Thiem - Clarify and refine the Urban Design Guidelines - Integrate the Master Plan updates with infrastructure planning - Adjust land uses and blocks to meet current socio-economic conditions - Adjust density, FAR, heights, landmarks, roads and block structure in Core Area - Integrate public facilities such as police and firefighting, hospital, Opera House, and a “Children’s Museum” - Prepare a conceptual underground design for a retail environment in the Core Area - Integrate public transit via underground Metro currently being planned for HCMC - Update key “in-process” developments: VIJA Knowledge Park, Thu Thiem Software Park, GS E&C Group project, Eastern Residential Area, International Hotel parcel - Reflect an increase in the Right of Way (ROW) widths of the Crescent Boulevard and North/South Road - Integrate the winning competition scheme for the Central Plaza, Crescent Park, and Saigon River Pedestrian Bridge - Refine the landscape design and programming of the Central Lake - Refine the plan for the Southern Delta area to balance development and public space - Maintain all elements of transportation, vegetation, and public space from the 2005 Master Plan

The Vision Thu Thiem is one of the most important development projects in Ho Chi Minh City, if not all of Vietnam. Recognizing the need to accommodate significant population growth and economic development in the city (and country) over the next 15 to 20 years, Thu Thiem responds to these factors by providing a new heart and focus of urban and commercial life in HCMC.

The vision for Thu Thiem is a sustainable, 21st Century urban district that attracts residents and visitors, provides new parks and public spaces for all, allows for diverse contemporary development, and creates a world-class skyline, while preserving the existing historic scale and neighborhoods of greater Ho Chi Minh City. Sasaki’s Master Plan is based on the following key principles: (1) (2)

- Framework of transportation, land use, and public spaces that integrates the existing ecological conditions of the lower Saigon River

(13)

(3)

- Response to the climate of southern Vietnam (4)

(11)

(12)

- Focus on connections to the riverfront, linkages to the historic city center, and a compact, flexible urban form - Promotion of density and integrated public transit (water and land-based)

(5) (10)

- Appropriate street and building orientation that encourages cross-ventilation and passive cooling

(9)

- Incorporation of the natural delta landscape into the urban fabric and preservation of native vegetation - Key ecological strategy that maintains Thu Thiem as an“open system”– one that accommodates tidal regimes and high-water events through natural and man-made canals, lakes, and mangrove areas

(6) (7)

(8)

Over the next 20 years, Thu Thiem will accommodate 148,000 new residents and several hundred thousand employees and visitors. Since 2005, three major infrastructure linkages have been built to accommodate this new population, based on Sasaki’s planning work:

(14)

Thu Thiem Bridge: This bridge as proposed by Sasaki in the original Master Plan opened in 2007 and spans the Saigon River at the northern end of the project. For the first time in Ho Chi Minh City’s history, the bridge connects Thu Thiem directly with the existing city.

(15)

East/West Boulevard: This multi-lane “boulevard” transforms how the Thu Thiem peninsula will be used over the next 100 years. The alignment follows the specific recommendation by Sasaki in the original award-winning plan. The roadway connects Thu Thiem to new residential and commercial districts to the east and opens up access to the diverse development opportunities embedded in Sasaki’s Master Plan.

East / West Tunnel: As an extension of the East/West Boulevard, the tunnel passes below the Saigon River and connects historic District 1 and Thu Thiem. Officially opened in November 2011, the tunnel provides the primary western route onto Thu Thiem. Three additional vehicular bridges are slated to be built according to Sasaki’s plan over the next 50 years. In the future, an iconic pedestrian bridge will connect Thu Thiem’s future Central Plaza – one of the biggest public spaces in all of Vietnam – with Me Linh Square. The tallest building in Vietnam is also proposed in the Sasaki Master Plan. At 86-stories and currently in the concept design stage with a private HCMC developer, this mixed-use tower sits at a crucial visual axis and will be a landmark in Thu Thiem’s skyline of buildings.

Sustainability at Thu Thiem

Sustainability at All Levels of Planning and Design Countries around the world are developing sustainability standards for green building codes. Governments and developers are recognizing the critical need and benefit of conserving resources and enhancing local environments for the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens. At Thu Thiem, environmental sustainability must be acknowledged and built into every facet of the project. Elements of street orientation, building orientation, wind flow, water receiving landscapes, minimization of cut and fill operations, and enhancement of the existing Thu Thiem delta area have been incorporated at the Master Plan level. Every developer must examine sustainability components at the building level, including active and passive strategies to reduce energy consumption, use alternatives energies, increase water recycling, utilize local materials, pursue solid waste strategies, and engage in a whole range of other approaches that set the current standard for sustainability. Strategies explored should address the following components: - Passive Strategies - Active Strategies (Energy Use and Generation) - Water Management - Drainage and Run-off Filteration - Health and Wellness - Transportation - Social and Community Support and Infrastructure

The Client, Consultants and Process The client for the Thu Thiem New Urban Area is the “Investment and Construction Authority for Thu Thiem” also known as the ICA. The ICA is a government created agency and has been the leader for Thu Thiem’s creation since the project was conceived in the early 2000s. ICA is responsible for the hiring, oversight and management of Thu Thiem’s Urban Design and infrastructure planning; investor and developer interaction during the implementation processes; and enforcer of the Urban Design Guidelines. ICA is the client for the Thu Thiem 1:2000 Master Plan Adjustment project. Sasaki Associates is the Master Planner of the Thu Thiem New Urban Area. Sasaki’s involvement in the project spans the course of 9 years, from the original winning scheme in the 2003 international design competition to the Master Plan adjustment work in 2011. Sasaki is a multi-disciplinary Urban Design, Planning, Architecture and Landscape Architecture firm of 250 people located in Boston, Massachusetts, USA. The Thu Thiem 1:2000 Master Plan Adjustment project lasted between January 2011 and January 2012 and included a series of five (5) key working sessions. Three of these worksession occurred in Ho Chi Minh City and were coordinated by the ICA, with presentations by Sasaki Associates and feedback from numerous stakeholders and city agencies. Two of the worksessions were held as online meetings between Ho Chi Minh City and Boston. Refinements to the Master Plan and Urban Design Guidelines were reviewed and approved leading to the final 2011 Master Plan, which is fully described in Chapter 4 of this report.

Stakeholder Engagement: Seminars and Workshops In addition to the Investment and Construction Authority, numerous agencies participated in the 1:2000 Master Plan Adjustment worksessions. They include the following: HCMC Urban Planning Institute, HCMC Department of Urban Planning and Architecture (DUPA), HCMC Department of Construction, HCMC Department of Natural Resources and Environment, HCMC Department of Transportation and Public Works, HCMC Department of Tourism, Urban Construction Authority, Urban Railway Management Unit, Urban Waterways, Urban Highway Management Company, East/West Boulevard Management Authority, HCMC Department of Water Transport, HCMC Department of Firefighting, DESO Architects Worksession #1 – January 18, 2011 (online meeting): This meeting was the project kick-off to confirm goals and objectives, existing site information, ongoing project and city initiatives, missing information, GFA, and next steps. The key outcome of this worksession was that the GFA (gross floor area) for Thu Thiem should be increased by 40% from the 2005 figure of 5.4 million square meters. The new GFA target was therefore set at 7.56 million square meters. Worksession #2 – February 16, 17, 18 2011 (HCMC): Sasaki presented the Worksession #2 material to an audience of approximately 60 key stakeholders and covered adjustments to the Thu Thiem Master Plan related to land use and character; building heights and GFA; circulation and public transit; and the Central Plaza and public space. Key outcomes of this worksession were the disposition of key building programs (Museum, Opera House, Visitor’s Center, City Hall) and that unlimited building heights and GFA are not possible at Thu Thiem. Worksession #3 – April 5 and 6, 2011 (HCMC): Sasaki presented the Worksession #3 material to an audience of approximately 60 key stakeholders covering the incorporated revisions and comments from Worksession #2. Key outcomes of the meeting were that the adjusted Master Plan meets the demands of the ICA with some final revisions to be done; the adjusted Master Plan exhibits better planning since Worksession #2 and will be more effective for developers; and the landscape proposal for the Central Lake is quite reasonable and should be included in the final Master Plan. Worksession #4 – October 25, 2011 (online meeting): An online meeting occurred between ICA, DUPA, the Departments of Transportation and Construction, and Sasaki to review critical Master Plan Adjustment refinements and to review an initial draft of the Urban Design Guidelines (neighborhood 3). Final refinements were discussed, as were next steps and scheduling of the final worksession. Worksession #5 – December 5, 6, 7 2011 (HCMC): The final worksession focused on the final draft of the Urban Design Guidelines which are critical to the accurate implementation of the Master Plan during construction. Several key refinements were made with the overall understanding that the Guidelines were appropriately detailed and de-

Regional / National Context Thu Thiem sits at a strategic location in the broader context of Ho Chi Minh City. Largely cut off from development due to the large port facilities nearby, the Thu Thiem peninsula is now a desirable investment target as the large ports are being removed and relocated much farther to the south (and closer to the East Sea). Thu Thiem is also seen as a “gateway� into HCMC from points to the east, including a future airport location and connections to an Airport Express subway system. Thu Thiem is also located at the terminus of National Highway 1 which is the corridor that connects the entire country from north to south, Hanoi to HCMC.

Existing Site The 657-hectare site for Thu Thiem is a broad, flat expanse of existing land comprised of informal settlement housing, mangrove forest, and navigable and non-navigable canals. In the past 6 years, the site has been transformed in key zones, with the implementation of the Thu Thiem Bridge #1, the first portion of the North/South Connector Road (to the intersection with the East/West Boulevard), the East/West Boulevard itself, and the East/West Tunnel underneath the Saigon River. New public housing is underway in the far eastern part of the site, while certain development parcels have been cleared of vegetation, setting the stage for future development. These changes are clearly seen in a review of aerial photographs over the past 6 years.

2005 Site Analysis Key site features were analyzed during the initial Master Planning process in 2005 that remain applicable today. An analysis of relative land elevations determined that the higher elevations occurred in the north, west, and central portions of the site and that these lands would be most conducive to future development. It was further determined at that time – based on extreme high and low tides, projected tidal fluctuations, hydrological predictions, and climate change – that a minimum elevation of +2.5 meters should be established for all development at Thu Thiem. Further site analysis included vegetation, waterways, orientation, and views which were all influential in the creation of the 2005 Master Plan.

2005 Master Plan The 2005 Thu Thiem Master Plan presented a comprehensive, 20-year vision for the peninsula as a dynamic, mixed-use urban district of housing, commercial, office, cultural, institutional, and public space uses. The following key principles were established in 2005 and carried through to the 2011 Master Plan Adjustment: - Create a new CBD and walkable, mixed-use neighborhoods for 21st Century Ho Chi Minh City - Create a sustainable new city district that incorporates the natural landscape condition of Thu Thiem - Create active streets and public spaces defined by strong building edges typical of Ho Chi Minh City - Create a central plaza and waterfront park for HCMC that is free and open to all - Promote density and compact urban form punctuated by landmark towers - Promote public transit in the form of underground subway, buses, water taxis, and ferries - Promote sustainable public spaces that serve an urban and ecological purpose - Create a memorable skyline of diverse building heights - Create a skyline that will be viewed from many different angles and be an exciting “façade” for HCMC - Allow for flexibility of density and form within each neighborhood, while achieving an overall urban character - Locate key amenities – museums, community centers, schools, hospitals – throughout the plan for proximity to all The 2005 Master Plan set the CONCEPTUAL framework and layout for Thu Thiem, comprised of distinct neighborhoods and public landscapes including the Central Plaza, Crescent Park, and Central Lake. Development blocks and parcels were clearly defined and the “Core Area” was established directly opposite the historic District 1 area of HCMC. A clear roadway network was designed with primary, secondary, and tertiary roadways. The “Crescent Boulevard” was designed as a high spine, raised slightly and accommodating the tallest buildings at Thu Thiem, with descending heights of buildings as one moves towards the waterways on either side. This critical principle allows for expansive views from most buildings to the water. The GFA (gross floor area) of the 2005 Master Plan was targeted at 5.4 million square meters with a permanent residential population of 130,000 people.

` Eastern Residential

Thu Thiem Central Plaza

District 1 Master Plan: The District 1 Master Plan is a comprehensive land use and massing study for the historic core of Ho Chi Minh City, extending westward from the Saigon River to Dien Bein Phu Boulevard and roughly south to the existing canal bordering the Cholon District. Key strategies in the plan include burying Ton Duc Thang Road and creating a new waterfront park on top of this roadway, opening up public access to the water. The park would be a perfect mirror image of the Crescent Park being created at Thu Thiem and frame the Saigon River with public space. A development pattern of high towers is proposed nearby, however, given the limits on economic growth and competitive investment environment, the higher density development should be encouraged and directed towards Thu Thiem in the future. This would encourage preservation of the unique, humane scale of existing District 1. District 2 Planning: An extensive Master Plan process has been ongoing for the areas to the north and east of Thu Thiem. The general boundary of these plans is the Saigon River to the west, the East/West Boulevard to the south and east, and the National Highway 1 to the north. Initial schemes show areas of very high, mixed-use density surrounded by pockets of lower density within a framework of landscape and canals. FARs range between 2.0 and 10.0 and building heights from 2 to 60 stories. Moving forward, the schemes for this area should be clarified in relation to Thu Thiem so that programmatic hierarchy and development priorities can be set. Eastern Residential District: The Eastern Residential District is located in the easternmost area of Thu Thiem and borders the East/West Boulevard. The district is intended as public resettlement housing for the existing Thu Thiem population. The Investment and Construction Authority has been working with private development companies to design and construct this critical development component at Thu Thiem. The district is characterized by 25 story residential apartment blocks, retail on the ground floor, a clear grid of streets, public spaces, and civic and educational amenities. Central Plaza, Crescent Park, Saigon River Pedestrian Bridge Competition: A two-stage, open international ideas competition was held in 2008 on behalf of the Investment and Construction Authority to seek out the best plans for the Central Plaza, Crescent Park, and Saigon River Pedestrian Bridge. Approximately 160 schemes from around the world were submitted. The winning scheme was prepared by a French architecture firm named DESO. DESO was subsequently contracted to prepare conceptual schemes for the Plaza and Park based on their winning entry. That work is ongoing as of January 2012 and is reflected in Sasaki’s Master Plan Adjustment.

10% Infrastructure Works The 10% infrastructure work was based on the layout of the 2005 Master Plan and was intended to define the primary strategies for utilities as well as roadway design. Utilities were studied comprehensively, with concepts proposed for stormwater, sanitary sewer, water supply, solid waste, power, telecommunication, and gas supply. Below is a brief description of the approach for each utility: Stormwater: Collection via a combination of catch basins with deep sump for pre-treatment and a network of bioswales; system to be selected based on topography, roadway layout, waterway proximity, groundwater, and tides Sanitary Sewer: Total estimated sanitary flow of 80,000 cubic meters per day, primarily through gravity system and pump stations; early phase solutions are recommended Water Supply: Water demand is based on year 2020 targets of 200,000 permanent residents, 450,000 employees per day, and 200,000 visitors per day; design intent is to provide the population with sufficient volumes of potable water at adequate pressures to provide peak-hour demand or maximum day demand rate plus firefighting flows Solid Waste: Daily estimated waste generation for year 2020 is 400-500 tonnes/day along with construction and demolition (C&D) waste; system to include a range of waste containment systems, public litter bins, mechanized transfer of waste to vehicles or direct haul, at-source separation of recyclables, facilities for material recovery and waste transfer, remote composting, systems for medical waste collection and special, commercial, sludge or hazardous waste Power: Power to be sourced from Thu Duc substation via the An Khanh substation which was planned to be upgraded (needs confirmation); designed in loop circuits with transformer stations; load demand per block to be calculated in 30% Infrastructure work based on Master Plan Adjustment with specific GFA targets Telecommunication: Main distribution medium at time of report was Fiber Optic using FTTH and FTTD principles, 10Gigabit Ethernet bearers, Gigabit Passive Optical Network, Meshed WiFi and/or WiMax cells, and other technologies to be further detailed in the 30% work Gas: Assumed sources of petroleum in Bach Ho and Malay Tho Chu Basins, to be processed at Dinh Co Gas Plant, piped to Phu My Fertiliser Plant, and then to Thu Thiem; main distribution system within Thu Thiem to provide a loop and a connection to the source with branch pipelines within the tertiary roads

2011 Master Plan Adjustment Key Refinements The core principles of the 2005 Master Plan are maintained in the 2011 Master Plan Adjustment. However, several strategic refinements have been made to achieve the ICA goals of updating the plan. The following issues have been addressed : - GFA - Streets and Blocks - Land Use - Vehicular Circulation - Parking - Landmark Building Locations - Skyline Studies

GFA

Since the beginning of the project, there have been three (3) totals for project GFA, as follows: 2005 (Master Plan Original) 2008 (Master Plan w/ Revised GFA) 2011 (Master Plan Adjustment)

6.2 million square meters (based on 737 ha site) 5.4 million square meters (based on 657 ha site) 7.56 million square meters (based on 657 ha site)

The 2011 Master Plan Adjustment reflects an increase of 2.16 million square meters over the 2008 Plan. This is an increase of 40% in the GFA over the 2008 Plan. This 40% maximum number was provided to Sasaki by ICA as a benchmark to reasonably increase density of the project, respond to critical developer and investor requests for the allowance of more GFA, to provide a stronger urban form and character to the skyline of Thu Thiem, and to incorporate approved “in-process” projects. The methods of the increase are explained as follows: - Increased GFA in Core Area 1 and 2 to make a stronger urban form and image for the city - Increased GFA in Core Area 1 and 2 to respond to development trends and requirements (included in above) - Increased GFA along Crescent Blvd. in District 3 to create strong urban form along increased ROW - Increased GFA in District 5 as a result of refined design of Children’s Museum - Increased GFA in District 6 to incorporate Software Park per ICA direction - Increased GFA in District 7 to match Resettlement Project exactly per developers plan - Added GFA from Southern Delta zone that was not included in 2005 GFA calculation - Added GFA from Special Programs that was not included in 2005 GFA calculation

Street and Blocks Plan

The Streets and Blocks at Thu Thiem have been slightly refined in the 2011 Master Plan Adjustment. In the 2005 plan, it was apparent that many of the blocks were too small for developers or not efficient for parking structures or other on-site amenities. Blocks shown are now approximately 80m x 120m in size. The streets were also carefully analyzed to ensure that they will fully support future traffic patterns in the build out of Thu Thiem. The streets and blocks have been adjusted based on the following key principles: - Larger development parcels in the Core Area are more attractive to investors - Larger developments parcels in the Core Area maximizes developable area and increases GFA - Larger development parcels allow taller buildings - Larger development parcels minimize infrastructure and costs - Larger development parcels allow construction of larger underground garages - Larger development parcels are in line with international standards of Core Areas in other international cities - In the Observation Tower district, combine the “Tower parcels” into one parcel for an integrated mixed-use district - In the Observation Tower district, modify the geometry of roadways west of the Crescent Boulevard to align cor rectly with the Tower parcel - In the Observation Tower district, combine two blocks on the west of the Crescent Boulevard into one block to create a more attractive development parcel for investors

Vehicular Circulation

The complete traffic report provided in the 10% Infrastructure work from 2008 includes a detailed discussion about the methodology and conclusions related to future traffic patterns at Thu Thiem. In the Master Plan Adjustment presentation, Sasaki summarized the 2008 traffic report findings, as follows: - Projected traffic at Thu Thiem was tested in 2008 during the 10% infrastructure study - Recommendation was made to widen the Crescent Boulevard and North/South Road (completed) - The Thu Thiem road hierarchy was tested against existing urban centers (Chicago and Singapore - The Thu Thiem road hierarchy is similar to these well functioning CBDs - The Thu Thiem road hierarchy is a connected grid, which provides options to move traffic - A fully functioning public transit system is critical to the success of an efficient traffic flow The plans and sections for the Crescent Boulevard and North/South Road have been widened in the Master Plan Adjustment to reflect the above recommendations. This has added approximately 10 hectares of additional driving lanes which will very much contribute to positive traffic flow. Additionally, Sasaki has taken extra traffic facilitation

measures as part of the 2011 Master Plan Adjustment to ease concerns on the part of ICA regarding future traffic flow. On-street parking lanes throughout the project have been switched to “mixed” traffic lanes for a mix of cars and motorbikes (although if future traffic patterns do not warrant this additional lane width, the areas could easily be switched back to parking lanes). At the same time, an additional moving traffic lane was added around the entire perimeter of the Central Plaza. These modifications have added approximately 4.4 hectares of additional driving lanes which will very much contribute to positive traffic flow. It is also important to note that site access design and traffic management will be a critical determinate of future traffic flow. Sasaki will incorporate design parameters in the Urban Design Guidelines for parking access and minimization of driveways near key street intersections. However, it will be imperative on the ICA to ensure that future developers implement the guidelines appropriately. Given the above information, it should be stated that a comprehensive traffic model has not been completed for Thu Thiem. This effort has been recommended on numerous occasions and would entail several months of analysis and a time consuming investigation of the larger existing and future traffic patterns of the entire city. Given this time frame and prohibitive fees – and the fact that reasonably similar conclusions would be reached as those provided in the Master Plan documentation – a traffic study of this kind is not warranted at this time. It is, however, predicted that the vehicular network designed for Thu Thiem – in combination with the implementation of critical public transportation systems (metro, bus, water taxi) – will eventually be an effective and adequate transportation network that will be similar to (or better than) other world class cities around the world.

Roads and Public Transit

The proposed public transit system at Thu Thiem is a critical component to the future functionality and accessibility of the entire urban district. A mix of underground Metro (currently under design and development by Ho Chi Minh City); an Airport Express hub (a proposal within this Master Plan to connect to the future new Ho Chi Minh City airport in the northeast of the city); a metropolitan bus system that links Thu Thiem to all surrounding districts; an internal circulator line that would be dedicated to Thu Thiem; new expanded ferry stops at key locations along the Saigon River; and numerous new water taxi stops. The implementation of this system is fundamental to mitigating the impact of automobiles and motorbikes on the proposed roadway system. The Street Typology or hierarchy for Thu Thiem comes out of a variety of factors: an understanding of block sizes and densities, a variety of land uses, and a logical and efficient approach to urban design. The road network has been compared favorably with other major metropolitan districts around the world – the primary circulation routes are the Crescent Boulevard, East/West Boulevard, and North/South Road. Secondary roads provide the structure for the various neighborhoods, while tertiary roads allow for finer grain accessibility and movement around and through the blocks. Streets have been designed with generous sidewalks to create a pedestrian-oriented environment throughout Thu Thiem. Extensive areas for tree planting, lighting, and site furnishings will create a sustainable, welcoming, comfortable, and context appropriate environment for pedestrians and drivers alike.

Parking

Parking considerations have also been studied in detail in the 2011 Master Plan Adjustment. All blocks in the Core Area were calculated in terms of site area, GFA, building type, and parking factors to determine the appropriate number of underground parking levels. Most blocks in the Core Area exhibit an underground parking requirement of 1 to 3 levels, while the two highest density blocks require 4 levels of underground parking. These parking areas would serve the private development blocks above as well as the nearby underground retail areas that are proposed. Quantitatively, a total number of 15,565 underground parking spaces for Core Area Neighborhood 1 has been calculated based on land use and other parking factors. These spaces are recommended to be placed underground within the private development blocks. A total number of 9,188 underground parking spaces has been calculated for Core Area Neighborhood 2. Even with the increased GFA of the Core Area, appropriate parking standards can be followed and an adequate number of parking spaces can be accommodated in the underground parking garages. Additionally, significant public underground parking was included in the 2011 Master Plan Adjustment in two key locations – beneath the Central Plaza and beneath the public zone areas near the proposed Visitor’s Center and Opera House. This parking will be extremely beneficial to numerous future visitors to the public amenities within the Core Area of Thu Thiem. This parking will be efficient and beneficial for Thu Thiem daily visitors and visitors for special celebrations and festivals, in addition to the planned metro, bus, and waterway public transportation systems.

The Thu Thiem project has been divided into eight (8) unique and easily distinguished “neighborhoods”. Each neighborhood is characterized by a distinct mixed-use program and density range, as well as public spaces and frontages that will add value and provide an array of development types and opportunities. The “Core Area” of Thu Thiem is divided into two (2) neighborhoods known as 1 and 2a. In addition, Neighborhoods 2b and 2c are dedicated respectively to the Observation Tower Area and the Sport Complex Area. The northern residential neighborhoods are designated as 3 and 4, while the central neighborhoods along the East/West Highway are shown as 5 and 6 respectively. Neighborhood 7 includes the Eastern Residential development (and Urban Resort Hotel and Marina), while neighborhood 8 encompasses the entire Southern Delta area.

Landmark Buildings Key landmark buildings are distributed throughout the 2011 Master Plan Adjustment in strategic neighborhood positions. All have been carefully placed based on proximity to key public spaces, gateways, or views. The fundamental concept is that these “amenity” buildings not be clustered all together in one area, but rather distributed in order to increase real estate value for developers throughout the plan. 1. Museum: The “Thu Thiem Museum of Vietnamese Art” has a prestigious location along two water bodies - the edge of Canal 1 and fronting onto the Saigon River – and will be very prominent when viewed from across the river. The Museum is in close proximity to the Conference Center, hotels, and residential neighborhoods, making it a magnet for activity and visitors. A water taxi stop is proposed at the canal entrance to the museum and the garden area will spill out into the riverfront park. 2. Conference Center: This 50,000sm facility is located directly on the Saigon River and will be a prominent feature in the Thu Thiem skyline. Lit at night, this contemporary building will be 21st Century Ho Chi Minh City’s great gathering and exhibition space, drawing thousands of visitors. It marks the northern terminus of the Core Area of Thu Thiem. 3. Mixed-Use Hotels: This substantial development of hotels, shopping, restaurants, and other commercial activities is strategically located across from the Conference Center, along Canal 1, and along the Crescent Boulevard. Its fourth façade faces an avenue that leads directly to the Central Plaza. At the same time, an underground retail environment anchors this parcel and leads back towards the underground Metro station in the south Core Area. This is a powerful and highly valuable development parcel. 4. Opera House: A new Symphony Center/Opera House is proposed at the foot of Bridge #2. Directly along the Saigon River, the Opera House will be the cultural icon in the foreground of the Thu Thiem Skyline. An active arts plaza opens directly in front of the Opera House and is part of the Central Plaza landscape. 5. Visitors Center: The Visitors Center also sits at a crucial corner location, where the Central Plaza turns the corner and opens out to the Saigon River and Opera House. At this location, the Visitors Center will be easily seen and accessed by all visitors coming to Thu Thiem. 6. Observation Tower Complex: The Observation Tower sits on a visual axis from the East/West Boulevard as well as from Ham Nghi Boulevard in District 1. As the focal point of an entire district of the Core Area, the 86-story Observation Tower will be the tallest building in Vietnam, an icon of the Thu Thiem skyline, and command stunning 360 degree views. The tower will act as a counterpoint to the recently opened 68-story Bitexco Tower across the river in District 1.

10. City Hall: The “City Hall” facility is strategically located at a crucial intersection of Thu Thiem – the intersection of the East/ West Boulevard and the North/South Road – thereby making it highly accessible to all visitors. The facility will also be served by a nearby underground Metro station. The City Hall will be easily visible and easy to find for travelers along these primary transportation routes. 11. International Hospital: Like any hospital, the International Hospital at Thu Thiem must be positioned on a primary transportation route, in order to be highly accessible in the event of emergencies. At the same time, it must be open as much as possible on all sides, not surrounded by the typical high density development found in an urban area. The hospital at Thu Thiem is therefore located directly on the East/West Boulevard, open on three sides, with multiple access points. 12. Marina Complex: The Marina Complex sits at the very southeastern corner of Thu Thiem at the recognizable bend in the Saigon River. The marina will welcome recreational craft of many shapes and sizes and be a focal point for the boating community. Surrounding commercial land uses – pavilions, shops, restaurants – may serve the nearby low rise residential community, as well as being a special place to visit at Thu Thiem away from the dense urban activity in the Core Area. 13. Urban Resort Hotel: The Urban Resort Hotel is located on its own island at the confluence of several canals that come together in the eastern zone of Thu Thiem. It will be a quiet, private facility nestled in the “urban landscape”. Dense green vegetation, palm trees, and waterways will surround this resort oasis, catering to a diverse clientele from Vietnam and abroad. 14. Southern Delta Resort: The Southern Delta Resort is one of three key programs in the very low intensity development in the Southern Delta. This area is established as a “mangrove preserve” where the natural waterways and landscape will be cleaned, enhanced, and preserved as a very special ecological area. The resort will feature sensitive “stilt-like” villas rising up out of the delta and be a sustainable, special getaway in the heart of HCMC. 15. Aquatic Park: One of three sensitive developments in the Southern Delta, the Aquatic Park will be the most highly visited as a paid attraction for families and children alike. Therefore it is located in proximity to the primary transportation route, the North/South Road, which runs through the Southern Delta. The park will include sensitively incorporated water rides, “lazy rivers”, and other features that are fully integrated within the natural landscape. 16. Southern Delta Research: This unique research facility is located in the quietest corner of Thu Thiem, away from the hustle and bustle of urban activity. Here, private researchers will explore the ecology of the delta, mangrove systems, water quality, and experimental plantings, among others. The research center may be affiliated with universities in HCMC or Vietnam, as well as international schools.

7. Sports Arena: The Sports Arena is part of a larger “sports district” south of the Observation Tower Complex. This sports district acts as the interface between the more urbanized Core Area and the Southern Delta district of mangroves and wetlands. The arena would be a 10,000 to 15,000 seat facility for indoor sporting events and shows. 8. Sports Stadium: The Stadium is also part of the sports district and will be an iconic facility along the Saigon River. It provides an “anchor” program to the very south of the Core Area (the Conference Center in the north is the other anchor) and would host very large, regional, or international sporting events of up to 30,000 people. An active “sports park” with outdoor fields for soccer, football, badminton, and numerous other activities is located nearby. 9. Children’s Museum: The Children’s Museum is strategically located on the Central Lake at the end of the visual axis that extends from Me Linh Square through the Central Plaza. As such, it is the symbolic heart of Thu Thiem, the “focus” of the development which is appropriately oriented towards a youthful generation that is the “future” of Ho Chi Minh City and Vietnam. The museum will have excellent access for tour groups and school groups of all kinds through a nearby underground Metro station, the East/West Boulevard, and the North/South Road.

The proposed public transit system at Thu Thiem is a critical component to the future functionality and accessibility of the entire urban district. A mix of underground Metro (currently under design and development by Ho Chi Minh City); an Airport Express hub (a proposal within this Master Plan to connect to the future new Ho Chi Minh City airport in the northeast of the city); a metropolitan bus system that links Thu Thiem to all surrounding districts; an internal circulator line that would be dedicated to Thu Thiem; new expanded ferry stops at key locations along the Saigon River; and numerous new water taxi stops. The implementation of this system is fundamental to mitigating the impact of automobiles and motorbikes on the proposed roadway system.

The Thu Thiem Skyline The new skyline of Thu Thiem will be a dynamic, undulating environment of high-rise, mid-rise and low rise buildings, providing Ho Chi Minh City with a new “postcard” view and image of a 21st Century city. Several key principles were established by the Master Planning team: - The skyline will be dramatic and memorable from many different angles

Saigon River

Central Lake Crescent Blvd

- The landmark Observation Tower will be seen from all viewpoints in HCMC - Building heights step up from the Saigon River to the Crescent Blvd. and become higher around the Central Plaza - All buildings in the Core Area will have views to the Parks, River, or Lake creating excellent real estate value - Cultural and Civic buildings are interspersed at key points throughout the plan – not just around the Central Plaza – creating amenities for all and a foreground for the towers behind - The Central Plaza axis is left open to the Central Lake and the Children’s Museum - The Observation Tower is on the axis of two critical view corridors - from the East/West Boulevard and from Ham Nghi Boulevard in District 1 - The skyline will continue to evolve over time and take on new characteristics as buildings are designed and constructed - Vehicular and Pedestrian bridges will also be a part of the dynamic Thu Thiem skyline

The Thu Thiem Skyline

View 1

View 1: From the North As seen from the Bao Son Port area, the Thu Thiem skyline is a dynamic composition of building heights and types. The Saigon River, Crescent Park, and key cultural buildings are in the foreground, while the skyline steps up and back, culminating in the landmark Observation Tower.

Observation Tower

A detailed view of the skyline from the north shows a rich spatial layering of buildings and building heights. All buildings are afforded views to the Crescent Park and Saigon River, adding immense value to the real estate. View 2: From Me Linh Square The skyline view from Me Linh Square focuses on the Central Plaza, in a composition with the nearby Observation Tower. The view from Me Linh Square to the Children’s Museum is maintained to emphasize this important iconic destination for all of Ho Chi Minh City. The skyline frames the Central Plaza with two major landmark towers. The axis is left open for views to the Children’s Museum. The Observation Tower punctuates the skyline.

Block Structure and Tower Arrangement A fundamental requirement of the Thu Thiem Guidelines is that blocks should include a minimum 4-storey podium to frame the block and to provide a strong street frontage. This will form active street edges where a mix of uses can occur. Tall towers that stand along on blocks and are set well back from the street are not allowed. Tall building towers should be carefully arranged within the Core Area. They should be staggered on podiums in order to provide better views and to encourage natural wind movement. Taller buildings arrange along the Crescent Boulevard and gradually step down toward to the water in order to maximize the views to the river and green open space.

Sustainability Strategies Countries around the world are developing sustainability standards for green building codes. Governments and developers are recognizing the critical need and benefit of conserving resources and enhancing local environments for the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens. At Thu Thiem, environmental sustainability must be acknowledged and built into every facet of the project. Elements of street orientation, building orientation, wind flow, water receiving landscapes, minimization of cut and fill operations, and enhancement of the existing Thu Thiem delta area have been incorporated at the Master Plan level. Every developer must examine sustainability components at the building level, including active and passive strategies to reduce energy consumption, use alternatives energies, increase water recycling, utilize local materials, pursue solid waste strategies, and engage in a whole range of other approaches that set the current standard for sustainability. Passive Strategies - N-S building orientation minimizes West-East exposure, reducing heat gain and maximizing wind circulation - Shading devices and operable windows further reduce heat gain on E-W facades while allowing cross ventilation - A combination of green and white roofs reflect solar radiation and minimize heat gain - Building podiums with open ground level layout allow for well ventilated public realm - Atriums facilitate cross ventilation within towers - Building heights strategy maximizes daylight and views Energy Use / Generation (Active Strategies) - A task ambient strategy reduces lighting energy use by 46% - Chilled beams combined with other cooling strategies can reduce energy use by 50% - Underfloor air distribution provides improved air quality, energy savings and reduced building height - Photovoltaic cells to support energy demand Water Management - Recycling waste water on site and using it for flushing and irrigation reduces water demand - Green roofs capture rain water and reduce overall demand and stormwater runoff - Off-site Wastewater Treatment Plant - Rainwater Treatment Drainage and Run-off Filteration - Grading of districts designed to direct runoff from urban surfaces to river and lake - Canals lead into the Central Lake and Southern Delta, receiving landscapes in periods of high tide, as well as water filtration systems for water quality - Open spaces designed to detain and filter first-flush pollutants from stormwater and slow runoff Health and Wellness - Open Space and recreational amenities improve health and wellness Transportation - Provision of intermodal transportation creates walkable communities, reducing motorized trips - Subway (Gallery Access) - Water Taxi

Thu Thiem Neighborhoods The Neighborhoods The Thu Thiem project has been divided into eight (8) unique and easily distinguished “neighborhoods”. Each neighborhood is characterized by a distinct mixed-use program and density range, as well as public spaces and frontages that will add value and provide an array of development types and opportunities. The “Core Area” of Thu Thiem is divided into three (3) neighborhoods known as 1, 2a, and 2b. The northern residential neighborhoods are designated as 3 and 4, while the central neighborhoods along the East/West Boulevard are shown as 5 and 6 respectively. Neighborhood 7 includes the Eastern Residential development (and Urban Resort Hotel and Marina), while neighborhood 8 encompasses the entire Southern Delta area.

Neighborhood 1 n Ca

Neighborhood 1 forms the northern half of Thu Thiem’s “Core Area” which is the high density mixed-use Central Business District. Surrounded on three (3) sides by water bodies – the Saigon River, Canal #1, and the Central Lake – and connected to HCMC District 1 by Thu Thiem Bridge #2, the neighborhood is a highly valuable and integrated area of Thu Thiem. In Neighborhood 1, the Crescent Boulevard is the main spine, with the highest towers clustered along the edge and decreasing in height towards the Saigon River and Central Lake.

A major new iconic cultural facility – the Opera House – is also located in Neighborhood 1 along the river and at the foot of Thu Thiem Bridge #2. A nearby Visitors Center and other mixed-use commercial towers form the northern boundary of the Central Plaza, which will become the largest public space of its kind in Vietnam. The entire neighborhood is wrapped on its western side by the Crescent Park, Thu Thiem’s new public landscape facing the historic city.

Neighborhood 2 Neighborhood 2 forms the southern boundary of the Core Area at Thu Thiem and is an exciting, high density, mixed-use zone of development. The neighborhood is actually divided into two zones of development – one is situated north of the East/West Boulevard and the other, to the south, defined by the 86-story Observation Tower Complex which will be the tallest building in Vietnam. Both sides of the development offer excellent opportunities for value creation, views, landmark buildings, cultural facilities, and integrated public spaces. In the central northern part of Neighborhood 2, a new underground Metro station is proposed, linking District 1 in a very direct way with Thu Thiem. As a part of this underground station, a new Airport Express facility is also proposed to tie into Ho Chi Minh City’s future airport to be built in the northeast region. Tall towers are aligned along the Crescent Boulevard, with building heights decreasing as they move away from the Boulevard towards the Saigon River and Central Lake. This maximizes all views and creates an interesting, memorable, and diverse skyline. The Observation Tower Complex commands an entire district of development that will be a mix of entertainment, shopping, restaurants, hotels, office, and residential uses. This district will be easily accessed through use of the Thu Thiem tunnel, the Central Lake Road, and water taxi and ferry services. This leads directly into the Sports Complex area, with national Stadium, Arena, and nearby Sports Park that will eventually be accessed by Thu Thiem Bridge #3. Taken together, Neighborhood 2 offers a stunning and exceptional zone of new development for Ho Chi Minh City.

1. Cultural Museum 2. School

Neighborhood 3 Neighborhood 3 is a mixed-use neighborhood that sits along the northern edge of Thu Thiem where the existing Thu Thiem Bridge enters the site. Also defined by the Crescent Boulevard running through it, this community is characterized by taller mixed-use commercial space along the Boulevard, transitioning down to lower density residential and civic uses on either side.

Saigon River

To the north of the Boulevard, residential blocks command excellent views to the Saigon River and tie directly into the Crescent Park. The new Museum is situated strategically on Canal #1 at a prestigious location across from the Conference Center with excellent access by automobile, pedestrian promenade, or water taxi. To the south of the Crescent Boulevard, an integrated residential community with ground floor retail is efficiently organized within the urban fabric. A school is critically positioned along the southern edge, providing access to all school age children in this district. A substantial urban park is located parallel to the Thu Thiem Bridge and North/South Road, offering numerous opportunities for daytime and nighttime activities.

Neighborhood 4 Like Neighborhood 3, the density of Neighborhood 4 is concentrated along the Crescent Boulevard. The neighborhood is characterized by three (3) key schools as well as a central community center and administrative center that are located on a central neighborhood green space. The Canal #3 is introduced as a linear element that connects the Saigon River to the central water networks of Thu Thiem, allowing the tidal fluctuations of the Saigon River to flow through in an open system. Along the canal, ground level shops and restaurants will spill out onto this neighborhood amenity.

Saigon River

1. School 2. Community Center 3. Administrative Center 4. Fire Station

Served by bus lines and a Thu Thiem “circulator� shuttle, Neighborhood 4 is comprised of residential uses which will lead to a quiet but lively, active community that is highly pedestrian oriented and well connected to both the Central Lake and areas beyond Thu Thiem to the north and east.

Neighborhood 5 Neighborhood 5 is really two neighborhoods in one – the upper half along the East/West Boulevard which is characterized by special uses, and the lower half along the North/South Road which is primarily a low density residential environment. The special use buildings of the Children’s Museum and the “City Hall” are located in Neighborhood 5 at the crucial intersection of the primary roadways of Thu Thiem.

1. Children’s Museum 2. City Hall 3. Community Center 4. Administrative Center 5. School

An underground Metro station will be located at this crucial nexus of programs. Across the Boulevard, a commercial mixed-use development holds the edge, while behind it a quiet and lower density neighborhood of townhomes, shophouses, and villas extends southward towards the Southern Delta zone. Here, two key schools are located around a central green space and community facility. An administrative Center holds the very corner of the neighborhood while an efficient and very clear grid circulation system allows for traffic movement as well as comprehensive pedestrian sidewalks on all streets and blocks. Neighborhood 5 will be a quiet respite, a community hub of families and activities, in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City and only minutes away from the financial center and active business environment of historic District 1.

Neighborhood 6 Neighborhood 6 at Thu Thiem is an East/West oriented district that parallels the East/West Boulevard and is held between the natural canal features of the peninsula. North of the East/West Boulevard in Neighborhood 6, a new Software Park will be created. This will be a hub of research and business activity, attracting thousands and providing a heart for this neighborhood. Next door, a new International Hospital is strategically located for easy and fast accessibility to the East/West Boulevard and points both within and beyond Thu Thiem.

1

To the south of the East/West Boulevard, the neighborhood is comprised of commercial mixed-use blocks along the main corridor, with quieter and lower density residential neighborhoods behind. All parts of the neighborhood will be served by public transit, either in the form of buses or circulator, or through the nearby underground Metro station which will be located at the hospital and Software Park.

Neighborhood 7 Thu Thiem’s easternmost neighborhood, Neighborhood 7 is comprised of a number of unique uses. The Eastern Residential complex, already under construction at the time of these Guidelines (and therefore not included) establish the eastern gateway to Thu Thiem. This high and mid-rise development will be a small city within a city, complete with its own ground floor retail and civic amenities. Directly adjacent to this development – but on its own private island – will be a unique “urban resort hotel”, particularly immersed into the natural landscape of Thu Thiem. Open and airy rooms will spill out onto private gardens and shared pools as the hotel will have axial views looking over an enhanced and improved landscape of palm trees and natural vegetation, down the long linear central canal in the middle of Thu Thiem. The hotel will be at once extremely private yet highly connected to the rest of the development.

3

Across the East/West Boulevard, a new marina complex is proposed where Thu Thiem meets the Saigon River along its southern boundary. Pleasure boats of various sizes will be berthed at this marina, which will come to replace the major industrialized port facilities nearby. Surrounding the marina, a mix of dynamic commercial uses are envisioned – restaurants, shops, and pavilions all sitting within a waterfront, pedestrian pier environment.

Neighborhood 8 Neighborhood 8 – also known as the “Southern Delta District” – is the most ecologically sensitive development area at Thu Thiem. For the most part, this area is seen as a zone of enhanced mangrove landscape, dredged and cleaned waterways, and extremely sensitive development that preserves a crucial part of the existing peninsula. In a city of extreme growth and expansion like Ho Chi Minh City, this preserved and enhanced landscape will be a special part of the city that will not be lost, while at the same time contributing to the ecological health of the urban environment. As high tides from the Saigon River pass through the canals and mangroves of the Southern Delta, the water will be cleaned and filtered back into the waterway system. In the meantime, three small development areas offer unique opportunities. A resort hotel, built on stilts and hovering above the water, is located towards the west, while an Aquatic Park and Botanical Research facilities are placed in other discreet areas.

3

It will be critical to design and manage these developments in a sustainable way, ensuring that the Southern Delta can be improved to serve its new purpose for Thu Thiem and the city as a whole.

The Public Realm Seven (7) major Public Realm areas or “typologies” have been defined in the Thu Thiem Master Plan. All of these parks and public zones are critical to the future success of neighborhoods, communities, and tourist destinations in the new urban area. At a larger citywide scale, all of Ho Chi Minh City will stand to benefit from the numerous free programs and spaces that will be created. At an ecological scale, the public spaces will clean the air, clean the water, be open to families, children, and seniors, and act as key components of the ecological sustainability emphasis at Thu Thiem. 1. Crescent Park (Saigon River Park) 2. Central Plaza 3. Neighborhood Parks 4. Wetlands Park 5. Sports Park 6. Central Lake Park 7. Children’s Museum and Plaza Many of these public realm areas have been conceptually designed by the Master Planning team. The concept designs, especially for the Central Lake Park, Children’s Museum Plaza, and Sports Park, should be followed in terms of layout, circulation, and hardscape vs. softscape. Promenades, tree groves, water taxi stations, pathways, and sports fields have been carefully arranged and should be followed during the design development stages of work. 1. Crescent Park (Saigon River Park) The Crescent Park is a continuous riverfront park for public use and access to the river, and sits as a foreground for Thu Thiem’s financial district and core area. Various garden rooms and flexible open spaces are created to accommodate both passive and active uses. Decks and overlook space allow activities to extend into the river. Programs: Waterfront Promenade / Plaza Overlook Decks / Bridge Pedestrian and Bike Network Tree Groves, Shading Seating Area / Shade and Pavilions Rain Gardens / Flower Gardens Water Taxi Piers Ferry Stops 2. Central Plaza The Central Plaza is the most significant and identifiable space in Thu Thiem. At 20 hectares in size, and comprised of a combination of hardscape, softscape, trees, waterways, pavilions, and promenades, it will be Ho Chi Minh City’s largest formal gathering space. It aims to create a visual and physical link between the Saigon River and the Central Lake. It will create a stunning new image for the financial and business district and offer a flexible gathering area for large public events and city-wide celebrations. Programs: Major Public Events Parades and Celebrations Thu Thiem Visitor Information Center Art Exhibition / Craft Market Innovative / Cultural Pavilions Waterways and Fountains Tree Groves, Shading Grand Pedestrian Promenades Cafe / Outdoor Dining Transit Connections and Underground Metro Urban Stormwater Management Corridor

3. Neighborhood Parks Multiple open spaces of varying sizes are distributed throughout Thu Thiem’s urban districts. The parks aim to serve as a welcome amenity for local residents and visitors, to promote environmental and human health, and to increase nearby real estate value. Trees, pathways, lighting, seating, and gardens are all incorporated. The park system also serves a stormwater and natural rainwater filtration purpose that captures and reuses water within the sites. Cleaned water may also be used for park recreation features and irrigation. Many of the parks also act as detention spaces during periods of flooding and extreme high tide Programs: Stormwater Management Natural Water Filtration System Storm and Flood Detention Area Neighborhood Amenities Tree Groves/Shading Children’s Playgrounds 4. Southern Delta and Wetland Parks The Southern Delta and Wetland Parks are preserved areas for enhanced natural landscapes, stormwater and flood management, and improved water quality. Roadways, paths and trails are elevated to allow the natural flow of water to continue during high and low tides. The sites are primarily reserved for natural ecologies and wildlife habitats, while also incorporating eco-learning trail systems that connect different amenities. Sensitive development in the form of eco-resort hotels (built above the water and landscape), Botanical Park, wetland parks, and bio-research are envisioned. Programs: Eco Trails and Boardwalks Information Decks / Pavilions Small Boat Piers Elevated Roadways Bird Watching Stations Fishing Decks Enhanced Mangrove Habitat Dredging of Toxic Soils and Improved Water Flow Urban Storm Management Corridor 5. Sports Park Sitting in the middle of a forest-like landscape, the Sports Park provide various sporting courts, tennis courts, football pitches, and playground for active recreation. Other quieter green spaces that surround the fields and courts can be used for more passive recreation – picnicking, strolling, or jogging. The park is well connected to the both the main Stadium and to the Sports Arena, with a comprehensive pedestrian system and footbridges that connect to surrounding residential neighborhoods. Programs: Sports Courts Tennis, Basketball, Football Badminton, Shuttlecock, Volleyball Flexible Open Lawn Extreme Games Tree Groves/Shading Children’s Playground Picnic Area and Pavilions Small Sports Cafes Health Stations * Public Realm typologies 6 and 7 are shown on page 165

6. The Central Lake Park The Central Lake Park is a man-made central retention basin that aims to improve water quality and filtration of pollutants from upstream. At the same time, the park is a crucial community amenity, adding value as internal gathering and recreational park fronted by new, mixed-use development. The park accommodates various uses of public activities and provides access to the water’s edge with various overlook decks. The park includes flexible open lawn areas for passive and active activities, a new bird habitat island of tree groves, and a green amphitheater. Programs: Public Events and Outdoor Performance Outdoor Markets and Event Pavilions Food and Beverage / Outdoor Cafe Waterfront Overlooks Floating Market Tree Groves, Shading Boat Piers Sport Fields and Seating Terraces Picnic and Family Pavilions Children’s Playgrounds Flower Gardens / Wetland Trails Flexible Storm Detention Space 7. Children’s Museum and Plaza The Children’s Museum and Plaza provide a memorable landmark for the intersection of the East/West Boulevard and the North/South Thu Thiem Road. The museum is also situated at a crucial position on the Central Lake, on a direct visual axis that extends through the core area’s Central Plaza all the way to Me Linh Square on the far side of the Saigon River in District 1. The museum plaza provides a fun, welcoming, and spirited public space with interactive pavilions for children, allowing visitors to walk through different play stations that lead to the museum and lake. Drop-off and parking are screened with landscape mounds and planting.

2. The Guidelines assure a clear, logical, and efficient sequence of development for the ICA (development authority) and private developers (investors). 3. The Guidelines provide the blueprint for a memorable new city district and skyline. 4. The Guidelines are a manual for creating appropriately designed streets, blocks, and development parcels. 5. The Guidelines clearly demonstrate how to use buildings to frame street edges and create excellent pedestrian environments.

Neighborhood 1 forms the northern half of Thu Thiem’s “Core Area” which is the high density mixed-use Central Business District. Surrounded on three (3) sides by water bodies – the Saigon River, Canal #1, and the Central Lake – and connected to HCMC District 1 by Thu Thiem Bridge #2, the neighborhood is a highly valuable and integrated area of Thu Thiem. In Neighborhood 1, the Crescent Boulevard is the main spine, with the highest towers clustered along the edge and decreasing in height towards the Saigon River and Central Lake. The neighborhood is anchored by the 50,000 sm Conference Center which will attract thousands of visitors to exhibition and events on the Saigon River. A nearby mixed-use development of hotels, restaurants, and shop supports this major complex. A major new iconic cultural facility – the Opera House – is also located in Neighborhood 1 along the river and at the foot of Thu Thiem Bridge #2. A nearby Visitors Center and other mixed-use commercial towers form the northern boundary of the Central Plaza, which will become the largest public space of its kind in Vietnam. The entire neighborhood is wrapped on its western side by the Crescent Park, Thu Thiem’s new public landscape facing the historic city.

10. Every proposed development at Thu Thiem should be mandated by and judged against these Guidelines.

- The avoidance of stand-along tower buildings on individual parcels surrounded by parking or underutilized landscape - The accommodation of a diverse range of land uses and development opportunities over time that can adapt to changing socioeconomic conditions

(3)

- The creation of a meaningful public realm that serves an ecological purpose and provides places to recreate, relax, and gather

(4)

- The creation of a clear and efficient street and public transit network to facilitate movement Within the Guidelines, explanations of the Tower Arrangements, Block Structure and Building Typologies, Underground Parking Options and Tower Setbacks, City Skyline, and Sustainability are given. All are critical for investors and developers to understand and incorporate into their developments:

Tower Arrangement: Tall building towers should be carefully arranged within the Core Area. They should be staggered on podiums in order to provide better views and to encourage natural wind movement.

A fundamental requirement of the Thu Thiem Guidelines is that blocks should include a minimum 4-story podium to frame the block and to provide a strong street frontage. This will form active street edges where a mix of uses can occur. Tall towers that stand along on blocks and are set well back from the street are not allowed.

Options for developers exist for underground parking, including an underground and above grade condition. In the underground condition, the GFA of the parking area does not count toward the developers allotted GFA for their project. In the above grade condition, the GFA does count against the allotment. Should the above grade condition be selected, it must be screened from the street by development program (retail at the ground floor levels). Tower setback options above the podiums are also shown for both conditions.

The new Thu Thiem skyline will be an exciting, memorable urban landscape of towers, mid-rise buildings, and glittering cultural facilities along the banks of the Saigon River. The skyline will not just be viewed from one vantage point, but rather be an ever shifting composition of tall buildings along the Crescent Boulevard transitioning down to the River and Central Lake to either side. Views must be maintained from all buildings to maximize value. The 86-story mixed-use Observation Tower will be visible in every view and act as the major iconic landmark at Thu Thiem.

Sustainability is a critical component of Thu Thiem. At the urban design level, the Master Plan shows organizes a majority of buildings with their long sides facing south, a positive orientation to minimize heat gain from the low, late-afternoon sun. This serves a sustainable purpose in minimizing energy use as much as possible. Wastewater and stormwater management, solid waste recycling, and environmental best practices at all levels should all be incorporated by the developer.

View 1: From the North As seen from the Bao Son Port area, the Thu Thiem skyline is a dynamic composition of building heights and types. The Saigon River, Crescent Park, and key cultural buildings are in the foreground, while the skyline steps up and back, culminating in the landmark Observation Tower. A detailed view of the skyline from the north shows a rich spatial layering of buildings and building heights. All buildings are afforded views to the Crescent Park and Saigon River, adding immense value to the real estate.

3

View 2: From Me Linh Square The skyline view from Me Linh Square focuses on the Central Plaza, in a composition with the nearby Observation Tower. The view from Me Linh Square to the Children’s Museum is maintained to emphasize this important iconic destination for all of Ho Chi Minh City. The skyline frames the Central Plaza with two major landmark towers. The axis is left open for views to the Children’s Museum. The Observation Tower punctuates the skyline.

1 2

View 3: From the South The skyline from the south features the HCMC Stadium in the foreground. The skyline sweeps dynamically upward from the west and east towards the Observation Tower.
