Binh Dinh Province authorities have approved a new project for an entertainment and tourism site after the previous investor abandoned the old project.

The project which covers 6.8 hectares would be divided into two main areas. 4.2 hectares for a park and parking lot while the remaining area will be used for hotels, shopping areas and the beach. The constructions in the first area will have a height limitation of one floor so that the view from the sea to Quy Nhon Port will not be blocked. The height limitation in the remaining area is 40 floors.

In 2013, Binh Dinh authorities agreed to let 12 hectares of the sea at Mui Tan to be filled up for a cable car project. However, after completing filling up a part of the sea, the investor abandoned the project and the area with its views were blocked, upsetting local people.

Binh Dinh Chair Ho Quoc Dung said in the past years, the authorities, local people and investors hadn’t been able to find agreement on how to deal with the land.

“The investors wanted to build villas but it will affect the view and the landscape. Meanwhile, we are trying to relocate some households near the beach to somewhere else so we can’t accept the proposal to build villas,” Dung said.

The authorities will dredge up some filled up parts to make the roads look better. Both the dredging and the embankment will be funded by the investors. It is estimated that the park and the embankment will be completed by the end of 2019.

In the future, all residential houses will be moved out so there will be only hotels, parks, shopping centres, and docking areas.

“We have gathered public opinions and received strong support from the residents,” Dung said.
