ParkCity Hanoi is JRDV’s comprehensive master plan for a next generation urban center for Hanoi. The plan creates a new 18.3 hectare urban core in Hanoi that combines residential, retail, and commercial uses into a high amenity pedestrian-focused urban district. The plan uses JRDV’s innovative approach to mixed-use buildings that combine activated retail streets, with office and housing above. Parks and public plazas have been introduced into the tight knit urban fabric to create a complex urban experience. The goal was to create a regional destination that would become the high value shopping district for West Hanoi. The overall development of 348,000 m2 includes nearly 40,000 m2 of retail; 117,000 m2 of mixed-use; 145,000 m2 of residential; and 32,000 m2 of medical office complemented by recreation, and entertainment. Residential and office towers are creatively introduced into the plan in such a way that the pedestrian scale of the urban district is not compromised. Urban parks are a powerful element in Hanoi culture that have been included within the new core, often organized around lakes and water elements. The plan also creates a hybrid of park/street promenades that enhance the city’s pedestrian-oriented culture.
