Investments in urban space will transform Tuy Hoa city

Currently, Tuy Hoa is becoming more modern with a slew of new real estate projects under construction such as a mixed-use project in Ward 7 and projects along Hung Vuong street by big investors like Vingroup, APEC Group, and Dat Xanh.

In addition, several new projects are in the pipeline such as a high-class mixed-use residential project along Road N3 that is being planned for construction and another on Tran Hung Dao street. The projects are expected to create a new facade for Tuy Hoa urban area. The provincial authority has issued a resolution to lead the development and upgrade of Tuy Hoa city to meet the criteria of a grade 1 urban area under Phu Yen by 2025.

The province aspires to transform Tuy Hoa into a major hub for transportation, training, tourism, and industry in the south-central coast and Central Highlands, serving as a catalyst for Phu Yen’s socioeconomic development. The province will not only invest in urban development and expansion but also take steps to meet urban criteria. Thus, Tuy Hoa can be recognised as a Grade I city directly under the province by 2025.

Tran Huu The, Chairman of Phu Yen People’s Committee, said that Tuy Hoa will expand in the direction of a coastal city, an ecological city, and gradually transform into a smart city. “Currently, Phu Yen is setting up an urban development programme for Tuy Hoa city for 2021-2025 with a vision towards 2035 on the basis of the project to adjust the general planning of the city and its vicinity by 2040. The programme will focus on enhancing Tuy Hoa’s urban landscape architecture as well as facilitating the establishment of three new wards of Binh Ngoc, Binh Kien, and An Phu,” he added.

He noted that to raise Tuy Hoa to new heights, Phu Yen will focus on investing in the main urban roadways according to the approved planning. The roads will shape the urban space and create a driving force for the city. Projects include the extension of Nguyen Trai street, Nguyen Trai Bridge to the Ngoc Lang urban area, extending Tran Phu street to the National Highway No.1A, and the coastal landscape route and ocean park in the north from the Nordic tourist area to the An Phu sea embankment.

Phu Yen will invest in new urban and residential areas with synchronous, modern, and sustainable infrastructure in line with the approved planning. The province will accelerate essential procedures to deploy investment in key urban regions such as the Ngoc Lang urban area, the north and south Tuy Hoa urban areas, the urban area in DL1 and No.19 land areas, and the south bank of the Ba River from the old Da Rang Bridge to the new one.

Developing Tuy Hoa in a sustainable way

According to provincial authorities, by 2025, Tuy Hoa city strives to restructure its economy, with the value of trade and services raised from 38 to 40.8 per cent of its economy while changing the contribution of industry and construction from 57.7 per cent to 56.1 per cent, as well as agriculture, forestry, and fishery from 4.3 per cent to 3.1 per cent.

Tuy Hoa city has determined that the development of important economic sectors must be in harmony with environmental protection, climate change response, and adherence to sustainable development principles. It will also endeavour to develop tourist and cultural products unique to Tuy Hoa, including marine, resort, community, and festival tourism, as well as national and international events. This will also fuel night economic development. Trade, services, and tourism in the city will be linked to the Central Highlands market and the chain of central coastal cities.

More than 285ha of coastal urban development

Phu Yen authorities held a meeting in October to appraise the 1/500-scale detailed construction planning of the coastal service urban area in South Phu Yen Economic Zone.

The area is directly connected to Tuy Hoa city and is adjacent to Tuy Hoa International Airport. The planning area is approximately 284ha in size, with a population of nearly 20,000 living in the two wards of Hoa Hiep Bac and Hoa Hiep Trung, as well as Dong Hoa town. This urban area will be divided into many areas such as a commercial village and Emerald Laguna residential area, as well as a complex of resort, waterpark, and ecological residential area. The detailed construction plan of the coastal service urban area in South Phu Yen Economic Zone was sponsored by TDH Ecoland Urban Development and Investment JSC.
