Saigon’s most anticipated new real estate project, the 64-hectare Saigon Sports City, officially broke ground last week. Saigon Sports City will be a new “integrated smart township” located in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 2 area that is being developed by Singapore’s Keppel Group.

When finished, Saigon Sport City will have 4,300 premium homes and a sports, entertainment and lifestyle hub that includes a variety of sports facilities and green spaces that will make it a unique development. The first phase of the project will comprise residential spaces as well as sports facilities.
