Among the four rich streets in District 2, Thu Thiem is positioned as the focus of the high-end and luxury housing market thanks to being only far from District 1 by the tunnel crossing the Saigon River and new bridges. According to the assessment of Savills Vietnam, in the past few years, projects in Thu Thiem have recorded high growth as the infrastructure is gradually improving. The rapidly changing appearance of this place has attracted both domestic and international investors to flock here to develop the project.

Notably, the projects offered for sale in the last 2-3 years in the areas of Thu Thiem, Thao Dien, An Phu, and Thanh My Loi are all in the luxury group, so the price of the next phase is always higher than the previous one.
According to Mr. Hanh, the fact that the market has established very high prices in new projects in rich streets also contributes to pushing up the prices of old projects in the neighborhood to increase significantly.
This is the reason why there are almost no cheap houses or newly built affordable apartments in District 2 now. House prices in Thu Thiem, Thao Dien, Thanh My Loi, An Phu in particular and District 2 in general are likely to continue to increase in the near future when the clean land fund in Ho Chi Minh City is ready for project development. Currently, there are not many projects,” Hanh forecast.
