Enterprises are increasingly conscious of ESG requirements. Workplaces must now speak to health, flexibility, and sustainability as well as productivity and collaboration. Thus, buildings with green certifications and high technical specifications are popular.
Green spaces accommodate long-term operational savings for occupiers and support corporate sustainability targets. Green buildings are also proven to support staff productivity and improve wellbeing and work-life balance.
By the end of 2023, 98 per cent of Hanoi’s future office supply will be grade A.
36 Cat Linh upholds LEED Gold standards and grade A specifications across 20,536sq m. The office and retail components are slated to open in December.
The development supports flexible working and sustainability and has direct access to key districts, which make it one of the best workplaces in midtown Hanoi.
Flexible floor plans facilitate diverse demands
36 Cat Linh is the latest addition to Thanh Hoa Construction Corporation’s portfolio, and the developer has designed it to be green, modern, and better for people.
The building includes six office levels, a retail basement, and a four-level basement for parking, providing ample space for all tenants and visitors. Floors average 2,000sq m with raised floors and finished ceilings.
The seventh and eighth levels also have knock-out panels to boost connectivity between floors. These spaces support flexible working spaces and encourage collaboration and communication.
When it launches in December, 36 Cat Linh aims to be a prime property for businesses looking to establish or expand themselves in midtown Hanoi. The landmark quality of this building will ensure a solid foundation for its tenants.
Positioned in Hanoi’s new business centre in Dong Da district, 36 Cat Linh is close to Giang Vo food street, the 5-star Grand Mercure Hanoi and Pullman Hanoi, and leading F&B, entertainment, and retail destinations.
It is a five-minute walk from Cat Linh metro station, and less than 20 minutes from Hoan Kiem, Cau Giay, Tay Ho, and Ha Dong districts. Tenants will enjoy convenient commutes with great proximity to business partners.
LEED Gold certification and sustainability
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a highly regarded certification for green buildings, issued by the US Green Building Council. LEED prioritises health and wellbeing. Employers in spaces with LEED certification report higher recruitment and retention rates and increased employee productivity.
As of 2023, there will be four LEED-certified commercial buildings in Hanoi. By upholding a LEED Gold certification, 36 Cat Linh delivers high energy efficiency and optimised tech systems. It will have energy and water savings of 20 per cent and 40 per cent, respectively.
Offices are no longer purely commodities, but are spaces that must facilitate good experiences and support good health.
This is why 36 Cat Linh’s facade is made from specialised glass and solar shading systems that reduce solar radiation, UV rays, and dust from entering the building; this enables savings and pleasant experiences as temperatures are controlled and constant. There is also a rooftop garden that gives occupiers space to decompress and relax.
The building is positioned as a symbolic property in Dong Da district with its unique and artistic architecture. The facade is inspired by Vietnam’s rice terraces, a significant feature that represents the harmony between modernity and tradition, and between national values and international dynamism.
A modern project, ready for the future
Hoang Nguyet Minh, senior director of Commercial Leasing, Savills Hanoi said, “Demand is solid, especially with interest from ICT, manufacturing, and bank, finance and insurance companies. These occupiers have stringent technical requirements, but also want beautiful offices that meet their environmental standards.”
“With grade A specs and a LEED Gold certification, we expect 36 Cat Linh will meet the demand for high-quality offices and will be popular with leading domestic and foreign businesses."
Handover is scheduled for August 2023, with the official opening in December 2023. Savills is the exclusive marketing and leasing agent for 36 Cat Linh. To receive more information and consultancy on the project, please contact Savills at 0948 000 468 or Leasing.Hanoi@savills.com.vn.
