About Thu Thiem

Thu Thiem, the new financial center and new urban area of HCMC is considered as the largest urban complex in Southeast Asia in the coming years. Once completed, Thu Thiem will contribute to raising Ho Chi Minh City into the most modern metropolis, getting on the same level with Shanghai, Manila, Bangkok and Jakarta.

The development plan of Thu Thiem will reduce the pressure that the city center is dealing with. In addition, it contributes to preserving the historical value of the old center that used to be the “Pearl of the Far East” due to the limited demolition of old buildings and the redevelopment.

This new financial center will be the base of a big number of corporate headquarters and will become a vibrant destination for residential, office, commercial centers, hotel and serviced apartments, and all kinds of service.

Floor Plans & Layouts

The detailed floor plan of The Crest Residence apartment is built on the central planning land fund with a scale of 13,222m2, built into 2 towers with 24-30 floors with 3 basements. Two residential and office apartment towers built in parallel create a bright spot of majesty, affirming the brand name of The Crest Residence Thu Thiem. With a low construction density, the investor focuses on building green living spaces and internal utilities such as schools and squares integrated in modern architecture with eye-catching and impressive exteriors.


As the third plot of The Metropole Thu Thiem project, The Opera Residence inherits the outstanding advantages of the new metropolis of Saigon. Not only is it adjacent to the new City Opera House with an inspiring view of the Saigon River, the project is also surrounded by new symbolic works of the city such as the Convention Center, Central Plaza, Riverside Park and Crescent Boulevard.

Due to its proximity to the new Opera House, the main design inspiration is taken from the notions of symphony and the opera. In doing so, the project envisions to accentuate the synergy, the dynamism between the public and private realm into an integrated high-end luxury development through the meticulous crafting of inter-linked urban spaces to a dynamic and eye-catch façade that seeks to encapsulate the elegant “movement” of the symphony.

As a transitional space between the center of District 1, the Saigon River, Thu Thiem new urban area and the new City Opera House, The Opera Residence is sophisticatedly designed with reflective materials, making the building almost invisible when viewed from afar. The glass wall design helps the building not only take advantage of natural light, soundproofing and insulation, but also allows The Opera Residence to capture the colorful movements of moments of the day, of the seasons and of the life.

The fluttering nature of this inner surface offers a distinct contrast to the calmness of the outer facade, a direct response to the movement of the flowing river and musical energy of the Opera. All of those details have made The Opera Residence akin to the first notes of the Orchestra – a Prelude to the remarkable winds of change brought by the Metropole Thu Thiem.
