On January 10, Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee issued document No.09/UBND-QLDT related to the advertisement of Sunshine Continental project at 332 To Hien Thanh Street, Ward 14, District 10.

Warning the project

District 10 People’s Committee said that the advertisement published information about a project called Sunshine Continental located at the crossroads of Thanh Thai and To Hien Thanh streets. The investor of the project is Sunshine Group, which introduced products, including apartments for sale and for rent, and shophouses.

District 10 People’s Committee confirmed that Sunshine Continental project has not been registered for implementation.

In order to prevent unregistered investment activities as well as minimise losses and help customers, District 10 People's Committee has assigned related departments to closely monitor the Sunshine Continental project.

Along with that, the People's Committee of Ward 14 ordered the review of the project and will erect a warning board in front of it.

Sunshine Group claims mistake in registering project name

Sunshine Continental is developed on an area of 14,981 sqm with a construction density of about 23.6 per cent, a total floor area of 119,847 sqm. The project is expected to sell at about VND90 million ($3,913) per sqm, an average of VND5-10 billion ($217,391-434,782) per apartment.

The project consists of three blocks of 25-storey buildings with a total of 512 apartments and 47 shophouses. Bblocks A and C are apartment buildings while Block B is for services and apartment rental.

The project is advertised to be handed over in 2023, however, it is currently just fenced off empty space without machinery or construction activities.
