Indochina Kajima Development Limited (ICC-Kajima), a joint venture between Indochina Capital and the Kajima Corporation, hosted a ceremony on April 11 announcing the appointment of Newtecons, a subsidiary of Coteccons, as the main contractor for the Wínk Saigon Center Hotel (Wínk 75NBK), the first Wínk Hotel in Vietnam.

Located in a rapidly gentrifying area of District 1, Ho Chi Minh City’s CBD, Wínk 75 NBK will appeal to the young-at-heart business and leisure traveler. The 237-room hotel offers a modern design, a hip interactive lobby, a co-working space, innovative food and beverage concepts, cutting edge technology, and beautifully appointed minimalist-style guestrooms.

The Wínk brand represents the power and tenacity of the Vietnamese people, catering to their fast-paced lifestyle and their growing awareness and interaction with the world at large. Wínk aims to champion the “affordable luxury” segment in Vietnam, with a prominent focus on delivering an exciting lifestyle experience.

“This is a key milestone in the first ICC-Kajima project,” said Mr. Peter Ryder, CEO of Indochina Capital and Chairman of ICC-Kajima. “After carrying out a thorough tender process, we are satisfied with the end result - Newtecons being appointed for basement superstructure and masonry works. They have worked on several notable projects in Vietnam and we strongly believe they will add value to our development.”

“With our extensive experience and strong credentials in carrying out hospitality projects, we will work hard to ensure the highest aesthetic and technical standards for Wink 75 NBK,” said Mr. Tran Kim Long, General Director of Newtecons.

Newtecons has worked on a series of reputable projects in Vietnam, including Landmark 81, Masteri Thao Dien, Casino Nam Hoi An, and Forest in the Sky Residences at Flamingo Dai Lai. ICC-Kajima expects Newtecons to complete their work in November and is currently tendering the MEPF package for the project.

With an investment mandate of $1 billion plus spread over the next several years, ICC-Kajima is committed to developing innovative and high-quality projects throughout Vietnam. The company’s mandate is broad, encompassing virtually all types of real estate (commercial, residential, hospitality and logistics).

Wínk Hotels is a key component of their development program, and ICC-Kajima targets building as many as 20 Wínk Hotels over the next five to seven years in Vietnam’s primary and secondary cities, with potential expansion into neighboring markets such as Cambodia and Laos. Wínk 75 NBK is set to open in the second quarter of 2020, and shortly thereafter will be followed by Wínk hotels in Hanoi, Da Nang, Hai Phong, and other domestic markets.
