A sustainable showcase

To achieve green design and sustainable development, we are working with gmp International GmbH, combining our global expertise with local insight, to provide a high-quality urban showcase for Vietnam. The project will also be supported by the local design consultant VCC during the implementation process to comply with local regulations.
