Hoi An Waterfront Eco-community


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. Over the past two years, enCity team has worked closely with the developer Dat Phuong and local government to transform the site with sensitivity to the local landscape and cultural heritage.


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.
