Nestled in the heart of District 2’s administrative centre in the bustling Thanh My Loi Ward in Ho Chi Minh City is a luscious respite that is a tribute to the beauty and tranquility of Nature. Vista Verde, named after the Spanish word for ‘green’, is a lush oasis of flourishing flora and cascading water features. One of the most sought after high-end residential properties in the city, the iconic development features four 35-storey towers offering 1,152 luxurious apartments with spectacular views of Saigon River, Phu My Bridge and the surrounding cityscape.
The launch of Vista Verde in 2014 caps a remarkable 20-year record for CapitaLand in Vietnam. To date, the international developer has close to 6,000 quality homes across six residential properties in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, and nearly 2,000 serviced apartments in 13 properties spanning four major cities.
At a gala event celebrating CapitaLand’s 20 th anniversary in Vietnam, graced by Her Excellency Ms Leow Siu Lin, Singapore’s Consulate General for Vietnam and Mr Lim Ming Yan, President & Group CEO of CapitaLand Group. Mr Chen Lian Pang, CEO, CapitaLand Vietnam, shared with the nearly 200 guests his plans for further growth in the country.
“We will continue to deliver quality housing with new projects which will be launched progressively in the next three years. We remain positive over the long-term prospects of the real estate market in Vietnam and are committed to being a long-term real estate developer. We are well-positioned to ride on Vietnam’s potential strong growth in the residential market. With CapitaLand’s healthy balance sheet and financial flexibility, the current challenges will provide opportunities for us to secure good investment opportunities in Vietnam.”
Vista Verde perfectly marries the quiet of a relaxing retreat with the merits of a prime location. It is just five minutes away from retail and entertainment options like Metro Hypermart, Parkson Department Store and Lotte Cinema as well as amenities like Phuc An Khang Hospital and international schools such as ACG International School. 10 minutes away are Districts 1 and 7. The property also enjoys excellent connectivity via the Thu Thiem Tunnel, Thu Thiem Bridge, Saigon Bridge and Phu My Bridge.
The area has been earmarked by the local government for future infrastructure development. Residents can look forward to upcoming developments such as a new Metro line and highways that will boost connectivity to meet the growing demands of the area.
The four residential towers are perched atop low retail blocks, giving residences the added advantage of shopping and dining options literally at their feet. Sprawled across the fifth floor of each tower is a landscaped deck that brings together all the elements of Nature to create a fragrant garden in bloom. The greenery extends to the grounds of the property as well where plants abound and trees line the perimeter to provide both shade and privacy. The vast garden promises up to four square metres of greenery per resident.
Vista Verde has also pushed the envelope in terms of providing new housing concepts to the market. It offers over 30 unit types and is among the first in Vietnam to introduce compact Duplex units among its configurations.
As residents approach the units, they are welcomed by a private entrance foyer. Every apartment boasts streamlined modern interiors with a choice of river, city or pool view.
Three- and four-room units have outdoor extensions that are ideal for entertaining guests. Some larger apartments also feature gallery kitchens for light cooking and a wet kitchen for more intensive cooking, a store room as well as living quarters for domestic helpers. Creative apartment configurations mean that residents can have the option of a study, entertainment room or larger walk-in wardrobe. Duplex units for double volume living spaces and individually designed penthouses allow for greater flexibility and provide more choices.
To provide a complete lifestyle, Vista Verde has state-of-the-art recreational facilities such as a fully equipped gym and clubhouse with panoramic views, a resort-style swimming pool, lounging islands, a jogging track and tennis courts.
Much thought has also been given to the design of the amenities to ensure that every comfort is provided for. At the outdoor kids zone, parents can watch over their children in the cool of a shade. Even the barbecue terrace and picnic lawn are protected by an overarching honeycomb-shaped canopy that draws its motif from Nature.
Evenings and weekends can be spent strolling through the sun-lit open corridors of the mall in the retail component of the property, sampling the various food and beverage outlets, or dining at the alfresco spaces while taking in the sight of the tree-lined boulevard.
A tribute to greenery in the heart of the city, this symphony of Nature that is Vista Verde artfully brings together the quiet of Nature and the vibrance of life in the city to set a new high for apartments in Vietnam.
