The underground shopping mall in Ho Chi Minh city

HO CHI MINH CITY: The underground shopping mall in Ho Chi Minh city is to be constructed this year. However, we will have to wait for another 8 years until the mall is completed as a part of a larger project – a new subway transport system.

According to Tuoi Tre media, the underground shopping centre will be built alongside the Ben Thanh Terminal, which is going to be the central terminal for the subway system in the southern metropolis.

Passengers will be able to board metro trains on three separate routes to Suoi Tien in District 9, Tham Luong in District 12, and the Western Bus Station in Binh Tan District. The project is in progress but will only be fully operational in 2023.

A 19.7 – kilometer Ben Thanh – Suoi Tien route or No 1 route, the Ben Thanh Terminal and the underground shopping mall will be under construction this year.

700 meters underground from the 23/9 Park to the Municipal Theatre at three meters depth under Le Loi Street will be covered by the trade central.

However, a huge investment of USD326.22 million is required. So far, there has been just only one Japanese investor interested in the project.
