Ha Tay Ngoc Liep New City Master Plan

Ha Tay Ngoc Liep New City Master Plan

Ha Tay Province, Vietnam
Perkins Eastman and affiliate BFJ Planning prepared a concept master plan for a 2,430-hectare (6,000-acre) development site in Ngoc Liep New City, Ha Tay Province for Posco E&C. The development site is characterized by flat terrain and contains a number of lagoons, small lakes, wetlands, and irrigation channels. Particular emphasis was placed on responding to client goals for a sustainable, ecologically sensitive plan.

A key element of the plan is the preservation of existing settlements and productive farmland. New features include three urban centers that provide retail and community services for over 250,000 people. A park bordering the Tich River includes a botanical garden, arboretum, lakes, and other major tourist attractions. A proposed major road network and a new light rail with three transit stops within the site provides convenient access to Ngoc Liep New City and adjacent areas.
