Situated near the Ka Long estuary, the Riverside Community is planned not just to become a thriving tourist destination but to mitigate disasters brought about by climate change. It features an interconnected open space system that acts both as a series of recreational spaces and as a green buffer that integrates the revitalized mangrove forest, which protects the development’s coastlines.

The heart of the community is the central public core where the main lake and the marina are located. Around it, a diverse range of commercial amenities act as catalysts to create a vibrant public realm.
The community is envisioned as an attractive leisure destination that redefines the tourism experience of the city and a high quality urban development that surrounds a central eco park with a whole range of amenities.
A central water core
The main centrality is the central core where a waterbody and the marina can be found. Furthermore, a diverse range of commercial amenities are placed around it acting as a catalyst for development. An interconnected open space system is further supported by a continuous waterscape which allows the natural landscape to provide leisure activities.

Additionally, the mangrove system is regenerated to serve as a new and attractive tourism destination of the city. Last but not least, the road system network has been designed based on the natural topographic features and the proposed waterscape system in order to find the most efficient transport solutions.
