Place Design Group was invited by one of Asia’s biggest real estate groups to participate in a design competition for this 840 ha planned township near Hanoi, Vietnam. As the successful consultant, we partnered with our client and Jackson Teece Architects to develop a comprehensive master plan that supported Hanoi’s continued population growth and emergence as a major economic centre.

The vision was to create a sustainable, lifestyle focused satellite city that offered the full range of employment, education, health and living functions that meets the needs of a rapidly growing and modernising region. The master plan was structured around six strategies – urban structure, community wellbeing, transport, open space, stormwater and inclusiveness – which embedded global best-practice thinking in transport, environmental sustainability and community wellbeing.

Drawing optimum value from its Red River location, 60% of the site was dedicated as environmental open space and  parkland to create a regionally significant nature-based recreation destination for greater Hanoi.
