MARINE CITY, near Vung Tau in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, Viet Nam
Marine City is a 28 hectare mixed-use development, currently under construction close to Ho Chi Minh City's favorite beachfront getaway of Vung Tau. It was designed by PacificXanh's Philip Giang and HAIA, our collaborating partners based in Ho Chi Minh City. The sandy peninsula of reclaimed land offered the designers an ideal opportunity to connect the entire walk-able community to a spectacular waterfront, easily accessible by boat, with views of both sunrise and sunset. The spacious east-facing public plaza forms a welcoming primary point of departure and arrival for visitors by road or sea while a secondary landing at the northernmost tip of the peninsula offers an intriguing, quieter alternative. Marine City will include several hundred homes, a hotel, offices and shops, all connected by the appealing promenade.
