Dozens of projects in the expected 'super urban area' of Me Linh District have been left abandoned for almost four years.
Huge urban area projects abandoned in Me Linh
After securing capital, many project owners just neglected and abandoned their projects.
According to the urban planning of Hanoi period 2020-2050, Me Linh is expected to be the capital's central urban area. The planning attracted many investors to Me Linh, including HUD, Cienco 5 and Vinaconex.
The Me Linh site Clearance Board said that there were nearly 50 housing projects in their 16 communes. Four communes, Tien Phong, Trang Viet, Dai Thanh and Thanh Lam, along with Quang Minh Town, have over 20 small and big projects, such as Cienco 5, Diamond Park New, River Land.
Most have been abandoned since 2008 or 2009 even though ground sites have been cleared.
The urban area project Minh Duc, which has total area of 17.1 hectares, still has not completed the site clearance work. But they continue to advertise in the real estate market.
