Local developer the Phuc Khang Corporation has announced the handover of its first apartments to home buyers at Block C of the Diamond Lotus Riverside complex project in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 8, which has been developed by Phuc Khang Mitsubishi Corporation Holding (PKMC), a joint venture between Phuc Khang and the Mitsubishi Corporation.

The apartments were designed and developed to meet international green standards, with Diamond Lotus Riverside being the first project in Vietnam to operate in line with LEED Certification from the US Green Building Council.

The first owners at Block C, upon receiving apartments equipped with amenities and standards as committed, thanked Phuc Khang and its staff for the development of the green project. Entering the apartment, each customer can feel its beauty and convenience with an airy space and eco-friendly amenities.

The Diamond Lotus Riverside project is considered the green symbol project in Ho Chi Minh City, with facilities meeting five-star standards.

It is the first joint project of the Phuc Khang Corporation and the Mitsubishi Corporation, blazing the trail for the growth of green construction under international standards in Vietnam.

Diamond Lotus Riverside has welcomed over 90 per cent of customers who bought apartments at Block A and B, while the finishing touches on Block C have come to an end.

Last July, a ceremony to open a cable-stayed bridge connecting Block B and C, the last part of the project, marked the completion of the huge green wall in the city and the next stage for welcoming residents.

Endowed with a 300-meter stretch of the riverbank in the city, all apartments feature a view of the river, making Diamond Lotus Riverside stand apart as the city’s riverside green symbol for all apartment owners.

The highlight of the project is the top floor, which links the three blocks to create a unique sky garden covering an area of 5,000 sq m. The building is regarded as huge penthouse full of commercial and entertainment services.

Diamond Lotus Riverside is developed with the aim of establishing a perfect green ecosystem, from the design step to construction materials. With prominent characteristics, including energy savings, carbon dioxide reductions, and efficient water use, the project is aimed at improving the quality of the environment inside and outside of the apartments.

The project was constructed with environmentally-friendly materials in accordance with Japanese philosophy. To create a green ecosystem and preserve it for sustainable development to help people enjoy a comfortable life, and with the aim of conserving HCMC residents’ style of living in riverside areas, Diamond Lotus Riverside was developed to feature beautiful, green, and natural landscapes.

Phuc Khang earlier put Block A and B into service with up to 400 apartments.
