Hanoi to develop green space in connection with expanding pedestrian street

 Hanoi is researching a project on zoning public space and trialling eco-oriented management of green space in Hoan Kiem district, in cooperation with Ile-de-France province of France and consultancy firm DE-SO.

The project aims to develop green space in Hoan Kiem district in connection with expanding pedestrian streets, highlighting valuable architectural structures, coupled with renovation and landscape lighting.

The consultancy firm has proposed landscape renovation plans for three main areas, namely King Ly Thai To statue and State Bank of Vietnam Square; Dien Hong garden and the government guest house; and The Opera House Square, Trang Tien and Hang Khay streets and Hoan Kiem lake.
The project is based on two basic principles of restoring public space for pedestrians within the heritage site, and increasing the presence of green space to better combat the climate change and air pollution.

The project is scheduled to be submitted for approval in the third quarter of 2021 and implementation is slated for the fourth quarter of 2021./.
