|HCM City's new administrative centre
According to the design, the city’s new municipal headquarters will include six floors and four basements, with two subterranean levels lit by natural light.
The exhibition, which was started on April 16, is scheduled to last until May 1 at the city’s exhibition centre at 92 Le Thanh Ton Street in District 1. It is aimed to seek the public’s opinion for the design conducted by a firm headquartered in the US.
The 18,000 square-metre administrative centre will include offices for eight departments and agencies, an 800-seat meeting hall and libraries.
The HCM City Department of Planning and Architecture said that the VIP area of the city’s current administrative centre will be maintained to welcome guests. Meanwhile, the remaining areas will showcase the city’s development to the public.
The new and old administrative centres will be connected by a 4,000 square metre garden.Dtinews
