Thao Dien’s Gateway to the Future

accommodation - Saigon/HCMC: May 27, 2016

The Gateway Thao Dien project has raised the bar for elegant, sophisticated living in Ho Chi Minh City. At a time when big and bold is dominating the property market, they have gone for a smaller and more chic residence. The project comprises 439 apartments for sale, 85 serviced apartments and 22 high-end luxury residencies.

Its interior design is chic, modern and quite stunning in its simplicity, while providing homebuyers with different unit layouts to satisfy their diverse needs. Gateway Thao Dien offers one, two, three and four bedroom apartments, duplex garden villas located on the pool level, duplex sky villas and penthouses. Large floor to ceiling windows afford uninterrupted views of the city, the Saigon River, or both, depending upon which aspect you choose. An open plan living, dining and kitchen area makes an ideal space for families to enjoy their time together. All appliances are of high standards, and attention has been paid to young professionals’ lifestyle requirements in a modern world. The design has a Western, almost Scandinavian look to it. Bathrooms are exceptionally well designed and appointed. This really is high-end living.

The central area of the development features a resort style swimming pool with an in-pool lounge area, kid’s pool, landscaped garden, and BBQ areas. Instead of opting for large and brash, Gateway Thao Dien has wisely gone for a creative use of space, resulting in a chic, sophisticated community area; perfectly suited for young families, couples or single occupants. Judicious planting of trees and plants creates an almost rural getaway in the heart of the city.

In a market that can sometimes seem saturated with box-like, standardised housing units, Gateway Thao Dien rises above the rest, like an elegant beacon towering over the most chic part of Ho Chi Minh City. Thao Dien is the popular expat area in District 2, to the east of the main business district. The improvement in air quality is palpable as soon as you cross the Saigon River from District 1 or Binh Thanh. The area is more Westernised, has plenty of greenery, wonderful access to the river and tremendous shopping and entertainment locations. In recent years the opening of both the Thu Thiem tunnel and bridge, coupled with the extension to the Saigon Bridge has had a huge impact on the accessibility into and out of District 2.

District 2 in general and Thao Dien in particular is the fastest growing area of the entire city. The Ho Chi Minh City Metro project is set to open in the near future with the first line running alongside the Hanoi Highway on the Thao Dien side. Gateway Thao Dien is situated in close proximity to the Metro line between the projected Thao Dien and An Phu stations. This places the development in an enviable position regarding access to the city centre. The recent opening of the Vincom Megamall adds to already unparallelled shopping experiences. Also within five minutes are the Metro Supermarket and the Cantavil Parkson Shopping Mall.

The ideal residency for a young family, Gateway Thao Dien is within minutes of some of the finest international schools in the country. ISHCMC, The British International School, Australian International School, Deutsche Schule HCMC, European International School and more are all based in this part of the city. For keeping children occupied outside of school hours, there are many local cinemas, art classes, the Arsenal Soccer School, amazing family-friendly pubs and restaurants, and even an ice rink.

Gateway Thao Dien is a joint venture between SonKim Land and Hamon Developments. SonKim Land invests and develops high-end projects in the city, and Hamon Group is an asset management and private equity investment group based in Hong Kong. Developed by reputable developers, Gateway Thao Dien has simultaneously won both the Best Luxury Condo Development (HCMC) and Best Condo Development (Vietnam) trophies in the Vietnam Property Awards 2015.

If you are the kind of person that prefers not to follow the crowd, but to mark out your own individual path, Gateway Thao Dien will be the ideal place in which to begin the next phase of your life. This 21st century residence will be the residential highlight of District 2.
