Through decades of efforts, we are heartened to have built strong brand recognition for CapitaLand as a trusted developer of choice in Vietnam, especially known for our top-notch residential offerings of superior quality. Today, CLD’s portfolio in Vietnam comprises one retail mall, one SOHO development, two integrated developments, and about 16,000 quality homes across 17 residential developments in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Binh Duong province. As the Group marks 30 years of successful local operations in 2024, we are pleased to reinforce our commitment to Vietnam with a target for CLD’s residential business to reach 27,000 units by 2028.”Mr Yap added: “In addition to Vietnam’s residential sector, we see the potential for CLD to tap real estate opportunities in its burgeoning commercial, industrial and logistics sectors in tandem with the country’s ascent as a global manufacturing hub. As Vietnam increasingly emphasises sustainable development, new opportunities that play to CLD’s strengths in sustainability have also emerged. We look forward to working closely with the authorities and our partners to contribute meaningfully towards Vietnam’s economic development and urbanisation journey.”Mr Ronald Tay, CEO of CLD (Vietnam), said: “To achieve CLD’s target of adding another 11,000 residential units in the next five years, we will step up our capital deployment in Vietnam and expand our development pipeline through strategic tie-ups with reputable and like-minded local and foreign partners. We will focus on well-located large-scale projects in key cities – including Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and up-and-coming provinces nearby such as Binh Duong province – to capitalise on CLD’s unique end-to-end expertise across the real estate value chain in multiple asset classes as well as our competitive advantages in master planning and sustainability.”

Mr Tay added: “Sycamore and Lumi Hanoi reflect some of these strategies. They are CLD’s largest residential projects in Vietnam to date with about 7,500 units in total and a combined gross development value of over S$2 billion (VND 36 trillion). To bring these mega developments to fruition, CLD is pleased to partner with United Overseas Australia (UOA) Group on Sycamore, as well as enter into a joint venture with Mitsubishi Estate and Far East Organization on Lumi Hanoi. Offering a diverse selection of unit types, first-rate amenities and sustainability features that enhance the well-being of residents, we are confident that Sycamore and Lumi Hanoi will meet the aspirations of increasingly discerning homebuyers in Vietnam.”

CLD’s continued confidence in Vietnam’s housing market is supported by the country’s robust economic fundamentals, favourable demographics and increasing urbanisation. In 2023, Vietnam’s GDP grew 5.05% [2], making it one of the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia.  Vietnam’s population of over 100 million [2] and its rising middle class also offer a large and growing consumer market for various real estate sectors.

Notable launches by CLD in recent years included the 88-unit Define in Thu Duc City, Ho Chi Minh City, which was fully booked in less than two hours upon launch. Units of Define were each priced above US$1 million, setting a new price benchmark for the vicinity. Another successful launch was Heritage West Lake in Tay Ho District, Hanoi, in which all 173 residential units and 202 small office/home office (SOHO) units were sold at prices about 30% above the market average.
