SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - Vietnamese developer Dat Xanh Mien Trung Group was in Singapore on July 22 to showcase its most ambitious development in Quang Binh province, Vietnam. The event was held at Space Furniture Asia Hub on Bencoolen Street and was jointly organised by Dat Xanh Mien Trung and EdgeProp Singapore.
It saw a gathering of invited guests that included international architects, interior designers and consultants. Kicking off the event was a presentation on the project Regal Legend, by Philip Le Tran Hong Phuc, deputy CEO of Dat Xanh Mien Trung (DXMT).

DXMT is investing VND10 trillion ($594.1 million) in Regal Legend, an ambitious urban complex on a 21ha site at Dong Hoi, the capital city of Quang Binh province on the north central coast of Vietnam. Quang Binh is known for its natural beauty, with 404 different caves, mountains and beaches. It is located 552km from Hanoi, or just a 55-minute flight away; and 1,115km from Ho Chi Minh City, which translates into a one-and-a- half-hour flight.
Regal Legend sits on a prime spot at Bao Ninh Peninsula fronting Vo Nguyen Giap Street. It is positioned as an upscale resort, entertainment and shopping destination with commercial complexes, luxury apartments, boutique hotels catering to long-term stays, high-rise international hotels and hospitality branded residences as well as an international school. Construction is currently underway and scheduled for completion by 2025. When fully completed, Regal Legend expects to welcome 15,000 residents.

At the event in Singapore, Chris Bosse, architect and co-founder of design practice Lava, discussed the inspiration behind some of the significant projects designed by the firm’s founders over the years, including the Watercube Olympic swimming centre in Beijing and the Hainan Ocean Flower resort on Hainan Island.
Lava has been in Vietnam for the past seven years. Significant projects include the design of the 16ha Ho Chi Minh Central Park, together with Aspect Studio. In Da Nang, Lava designed DXMT’s mixed-use scheme Marie One Complex, where the design of the luxury apartment tow- ers was inspired by the Marble Mountains and their caves near Da Nang.

In Bao Ninh Peninsula, Lava also designed the high-rise apartment towers and the low-rise commercial buildings at Regal Legend, as well as the Regal One and Regal Ocean sales galleries, which were inspired by the stalactites in Phong Nha Cave in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site, in Quang Binh.
The signature villas at Regal Legend, which are around 300 sqm each, cater to high-net- worth individuals, says Bosse. Besides being the design architect, Lava is also the interior designer, selecting the furnishing, lighting and artwork for each villa.

B+H Architects is designing DXMT’s 300-room Novotel Hotel and 900 Novotel-branded apartments at Regal Legend. Founded in Canada in the 1950s, B+H became a member of Surbana Jurong, a consultancy firm owned by the Singapore government, in 2018. B+H has been in Vietnam for over a decade, and its projects include the concept for SCJ Tow- er in Ho Chi Minh City, where the design was inspired by Ao Dai, the traditional Vietnamese dress, says Dan Levin, director of South East Asia for B+H at the event. Another large-scale complex in Ho Chi Minh City that B+H is involved in is Empire 88 Complex, in collaboration with Buro Ole Scheeren.
Construction of the Regal Legend scheme is currently underway. When completed in 2025, it is expected to welcome 15,000 residents. The upscale development will help establish Quang Binh as an international tourism resort destination in Vietnam. According to DXMT’s Le, Regal Legend enjoys proximity to the beach, river and caves at Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, such as Phong Nha Cave, Paradise Cave and the biggest cave in the world, Son Doong Cave.

They include Singapore-based lighting specialists Kris- lite; Portuguese firm Jofebar, which specialises in metalwork and metallic structures and facades; DP Façade, a specialist in facades and part of Singapore-based DP Architects group of companies; and Space Furniture, which was first launched in Sydney, Australia, and focuses on contemporary luxury furniture and accessories.
