Plan no. 335/KH-UBND is also setting up a temporary housing pool for homeowners during the renovation and reconstruction process.

Following the inspection, several apartment buildings in Ba Dinh district will be demolished due to unsafe conditions (category D buildings): Block C8 of Giang Vo apartment complex; Block G6A of the Thanh Cong complex; Block A of the Ngoc Khanh complex; two front blocks of the Department of Justice complex; and the old building at No. 148-150 Son Tay Street.

No. 51 Huynh Thuc Khang Street (Dong Da District) is also classified as a D-grade building.

Households in these localities should be rehoused during the first quarter of 2022.

The demolition of Class D buildings is expected to take place in the third quarter of 2023, while for the construction at No. 148-150 Son Tay Street, it will be in the third quarter of 2022.

The people’s committee of Ba Dinh district is responsible for relocating households during the first quarter of 2022.

Funding will be mobilized from three sources: equity capital, public investment capital and loans from the City Development Investment Fund.

In case the state directly implements the renovation projects, public funding should include VND60.5 trillion ($2.6 billion) for the reconstruction of four D-grade apartment complexes (Thanh Cong , Giang Vo, Ngoc Khanh and that of Ministry of Justice), plus more than 4.8 trillion VND for five temporary housing projects.

The Hanoi Construction Department will also coordinate with local authorities to review the assessment result and continue inspection of the remaining buildings, according to the approved plan.

The capital will also assess ongoing renovation projects at eight other locations: No. 22 and No. 26 Lieu Giai Street (Ba Dinh District); No. 3A Quang Trung Street and No. 23 Hang Bai Street (Hoan Kiem District); No. 225 Thuy Khue (Tay Ho district); Block A and B of Nghia Do Apartment Complex (Cau Giay District); Blocks L1 and L2 at No. 93 Lang Ha Street (Dong Da District); Nguyen Cong Tru Apartment Complex on Pho Hue Street; and the Rail Transport Service Complex at No. 1 Dinh Cong Street (Hoang Mai District).

The list of apartment complexes to be demolished and rebuilt will be revised every six months, based on the evaluation and proposal of the people’s committees at the ward level (where the buildings are located), under the supervision of the Department of city building.
