In phase 1, Waterpoint will develop a 20ha central park, 17ha for a university and international school, 3ha for healthcare services, and 2.5ha of accommodation.

According to Chu Chee Kwang, general director of Nam Long, the project was expected to unlock the land fund and attract investment capital of Nam Long.

Kwang said that the preparation for Waterpoint had been carried out for almost 15 years, from the land clearance and compensation process, to research, design and planning according to international standards. — VNS
