Once a prosperous port city, Hoi An is a well-preserved ancient town with a 140-hectare coastal nipa palm forest. enCity’s proposal for the Hoi An Waterfront Eco-Community project creates a modern development in harmony with the rich architectural and ecological heritage of its surroundings. A thoughtful urban structure engages residents in quiet niches for retreat, while expanding the nipa palm forest and integrating it with public parks to preserve the rich biodiversity of the area.
This will be the largest land development project in the heritage town of Hoian, near the town’s protected nipa palm forest. It is also a project that is close to our hearts, as it was the first contract enCity was awarded at our inception.
A waterfront destination for both tourists and the local community, with nightlife and lifestyle attractions.
Summary of enCity Solution
At the heart of the site, a waterfront plaza creates a vibrant public centre and frames views to the nipa palm forest. The masterplan proposal ensures that the nipa palm forest is fully conserved and even expanded into the residential areas of the site. The location of the site, on former aquaculture land, will also reduce development pressure on farmland and forests in the surrounding Cam Thanh district.
