REIC - The project site, 40 to 50km from Hanoi City, is situated next to the administrative offices area of Vinh Phuc Province. It is also near the Noi Bai Airport and has high expectations of development.
The town consists of seven campus units. Each unit has a variety of land use including university, residential area, existing villages and mixed use area where citizens can walk to go anywhere in this compact unit of an 800-meter radius. All campus units are connected by bus on a circular route called the “Campus Link” by TOD where cars are not necessary for residents.
At the center of the site, there is a “Forest of Intelligence” surrounded by seven campus units, which has a library, music hall, museums and convention facilities available to all universities and local people so that they can communicate each other and enjoy art and culture.
The forest of intelligence forest, with lush greenery, cools down the heat in urban area by water evapotranspiration, and the cool air is delivered to the entire city by its green network. Residents can travel by bicycle comfortably in the entire project site of 5km2 area running a bicycle path developed along the green network.
