Limiting the "facade effect" in renovating old condominiums
Anh Kiet - Van Hang 11:35, 2017/09/19
Dr. Le Thi Bich Thuan analysizes: There is no concept of renovating the old quarter, but the construction of new urban area (on the ground of the old apartment only) with the criteria of sustainable new urban development, on both social infrastructure and technical infrastructure.


In fact, although Hanoi has hundreds of old apartment in need of urgent renovation, but businesses are interested in "facade effect". That is, only aimed at the old apartment located in the gold land, diamond land. The problem is hard to come up with, which is to build in a stable (even degraded) area of ​​technical infrastructure. While the new investors focus on exploiting the function of living in business after full compensation area resettlement. This is invisible as the additional load on social infrastructure, which requires the capacity of these public facilities respectively.

In particular, high-rise buildings, depending on the urban design but without adding population, add 18-24 office storey and commercial functions to the urban design of the road and to the dormitories. Public service levels: city, area, housing unit. Areas outside Belt 2 should be further exploited, allowing population growth but not exceeding a standard ward or commune size.

"If located in a residential area with few exits (such as Van Chuong), the construction level is not too modern, high but not increased population. With areas adjacent to public works (for Giang Vo area), it is possible to build high-rise and supplement the type of apartment for rent, "- Dr. Le Thi Bich Thuan emphasized.
