Rising trends of decentralisation highlight the need for office expansions and relocations
In recent years, the global health crisis has expedited some pre-existing trends in commercial real estate, such as occupant wellness, business flexibility, greater space utilisation, and cost optimisation. As all central business districts are being congested, companies are moving towards outside areas, especially to Thu Duc – a new economic city in the East of Ho Chi Minh city, with the need for high-value workspace and more chances for development.
New office products such as green buildings and high-tech infrastructure combined with a high-quality work environment are becoming more appealing to tenants, which shall contribute to attract talents and increase the retention rate in businesses.
Mr. Vo Sy Nhan, General Director of Gaw NP Capital, the developer of OneHub Saigon, said the global health crisis had accelerated some pre-existing trends in the commercial real estate sector. New office offerings like sustainability, smart buildings, and the digital workplace and infrastructure are desirable for tenants in the post-pandemic world. Developed with forward-looking visions, OneHub Saigon has been providing workplace solutions that address all these needs. This integrated business park leads the decentralisation trends for tenants to enjoy quality office space at a fraction of central business district rental cost.
Thu Duc City is the ideal destination for this decentralisation trend, thanks to its well-invested public infrastructure system: New Eastern bus station (bến xe Miền Đông), Metro Line 1 Ben Thanh – Suoi Tien, Long Thanh – Dau Giay highway.
Thus, projects such as OneHub Saigon, located within Thu Duc area, also benefit from these advantages to lead the decentralisation trend. Over 360,288 square metres, OneHub Saigon is the reflective design of the “Work-Live-Play-Learn” concept. The integrated business park provides an optimal environment that meets the diverse needs of working, entertaining, and living near the workplace.
To accomplish this, OneHub Saigon was designed as a campus-style integrated business park. OneHub Saigon fosters community engagement and creativity and promotes sustainable business growth.
OneHub Saigon is also highly rated for its excellent connectivity, thanks to its prime location right at the entrance of Saigon Hi-Tech Park (SHTP), fronting Hanoi Highway, directly connected to Metro Station 12 (Saigon Hi-Tech Park Station) of Ben Thanh – Suoi Tien Metro line No. 1, which is planned to start its trials this year. OneHub Saigon offers seamless access to the central business district and Tan Son Nhat international airport within a 25-minute drive.
Spanning a total gross floor area of up to 160,000 square metres, workspaces at OneHub Saigon are flexible to suit the individual needs of a company or customised build-to-suit buildings for a single occupier.
What awaits in the integrated business park OneHub Saigon?
In December 2021, Singapore-based Worldwide DC Solution successfully obtained a license from Saigon Hi-tech Park (SHTP) to invest $70 million in developing a new data centre in OneHub Saigon.
The 1Hub data centre is well-designed to meet the strict technical standards of the Uptime Tier III data centre. 1Hub data center is scheduled to be implemented in early 2025, making OneHub Saigon an attractive destination for the digital community with the huge demand for data centres in recent years.
With the quiet, sun-shining open space, the LEED silver certified office Tower 1 brought the true definition of a Grade A high-quality working environment.
