HẢI PHÒNG — Old and deteriorated residential buildings are being rebuilt, modern ones are being completed, and from next year, a number of new houses will be built in Hải Phòng City

This information was released by Phùng Văn Thanh, director of the municipal Department of Construction, at the dialogue ‘Joining hands to set up modern Hải Phòng City,’ held recently in the city.

Old residential quarters

A survey by the Hải Phòng City Department of Construction shows that the city has more than 200 old residential buildings. As many as 27 can be upgraded, however, the remainder, in which more than 7,000 households reside, have deteriorated beyond repair.

The old residential buildings are in Ngô Quyền, Lê Chân and Hồng Bàng districts.

According to Dân Trí e-newspaper, the buildings are leaking and dilapidated and the walls have peeled off.


In 2015, the municipality began implementing plans to demolish old residential buildings, build new ones and spend some VNĐ15 trillion (US$659.2 million) on the plan.

Two enterprises are participating in the project -- Bạch Đằng Construction Enterprise and Hoàng Huy Investment Financial Services Joint Stock Company.

At the beginning of this year, an old residential building - U19 Lam Sơn in Lê Chân District - was demolished to be rebuilt as a five-storey building.

Subsequently, the U1, U2 and U3 Lê Lợi residential buildings in Ngô Quyền District were demolished to be rebuilt as two six-storey buildings.

All the buildings are expected to be completed next year.

The city will also build four new residential buildings, each with 30 storeys, and is completing procedures for five other residential quarters, each with 20 storeys.

The city plans that by 2020, all old residential quarters in the city will be replaced.

However, experts from the Hải Phòng Department of Construction said the project was facing several obstacles because roads to the old residential buildings are too narrow, making it difficult to transport machines and construction materials.

Besides this, temporary accommodation for residents wasn’t sufficient since the number of makeshift houses was limited against the thousands of households in need. — VNS
