Hanoi prepares to reconstruct old apartment buildings

Hanoi People’s Committee recently assigned the municipal Department of Construction to finalise the reconstruction for old apartment buildings in the city in the period 2016 to 2020 and the next years.

The municipal People’s Committee said that the reconstruction plan for old apartment buildings in Hanoi should be completed by the end of this month.
The city’s Department of Construction was assigned to finalise the plan.
Statistics of the construction department pointed out that Hanoi now has around 1,516 old apartment buildings of two to five floors, with most of them built in the 1960s-1990s.

The plan should be able to state the number of apartments and apartment buildings that need reconstruction, identify related tasks and assign them to concerned parties, and introduce a clear pathway for the reconstruction process, according to the committee.
According to the municipal Department of Planning and Architecture, the committee should be in charge of the overall classification of different types of old apartment buildings and give directions to the urban architecture and planning process to facilitate reconstruction of the buildings.
The city's Department of Construction is responsible for instructing collaboration between concerned parties to develop specialised mechanisms and policies for reconstruction of the buildings.
A report on such tasks should be presented to the Prime Minister and the city’s People’s Council before January 31, 2017.
