AquaBay – Ecopark
Aquabay is located in the southern gateway to Ecopark, a township on the southeast side of Hanoi that is situated along the Bac Hung Hai river bank where the Red and Duong rivers meet. Surrounded by water and gardens, Ecopark is a destination for working, shopping, playing and learning that offers residents many lifestyle choices. The development of Ecopark By VIHAJICO is intended to optimize land use and ensure sustainable operations.
More than 20 percent of AquaBay is covered by trees, water and lakeside walkways nearly two kilometers long that connect the residential communities. Resource-efficient design features have been integrated into each apartment to provide savings to residents on their utility bills with an overall ambiance that is fresh and relaxing. AquaBay offers both the dynamic bustle of outdoor sports, cultural events and entertainment activities as well as the serenity of the lakeside panorama which can be viewed from apartment windows.
AquaBay has received a preliminary EDGE certificate from SGS Vietnam.
