VNREHa Noi People’s Committee has approved 11 social housing projects that are expected to result in more than 11,710 houses for around 39,640 low-income earners in the city.

Deputy director of the Ha Noi Department of Construction, Nguyen Quoc Tuan, announced the decision at a conference on housing management for low-income people, students and workers from industrial zones in the city held last Saturday in Ha Noi.

One project in Ngo Thi Nham Residential Area in Ha Dong District has already been completed and 328 apartments have been put into use.

Four projects are under construction in Ha Dong, Long Bien and Gia Lam districts, and when finished will add a further 3,298 homes.

The remaining six projects totalling 8,316 apartments were in the process of completing investment procedures, and construction would begin in the near future, Tuan said.

At the meeting, Nguyen Van Khoi, Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee, urged the department to survey the housing demands of these groups of people and work with relevant authorities to invest the city’s land fund wisely.

Initial figures from Ha Noi Statistics Office showed that there were about 355,260 cadres and civil servants in the city, the highest number in the country. Since 2006, the city has developed 206 locations with an area of over 596 ha to build houses for this target group.
