During its 13 years of establishment, the Phuc Khang Corporation has become Vietnam’s leading property developer of world-class green works. Its green building projects show a strong desire for a new high. They meet LEED standards from US and LOTUS standards from Vietnam, and include Diamond Lotus Riverside and Vietnam Lotus Village.

The high-end Diamond Lotus Riverside apartment building in District 8, HCMC, was built based on LEED standards set by the US and the LOTUS standards from Vietnam. The facility, with a construction density of 19 per cent, offers a convenient, cozy, and eco-friendly living environment to residents.

Diamond Lotus Riverside helps save 44 per cent of energy costs and 35 per cent of water costs and features an airy space with natural light, she explained.

To develop urban areas in a sustainable and green style, it is necessary to gain experience from developed countries such as Japan, the US, and Singapore, and establish close cooperation between State agencies and enterprises, primarily leading housing developers such as the Phuc Khang Corporation.

Since the first day of its establishment, the Phuc Khang Corporation has lived up to its mission of acting as a pioneer in building a better lifestyle and living environment for the community according to global green standards. All of its projects embrace traditional humane values, which are a solid foundation for the best service to customers and society.
