Advertorial – “Whenever I visit Singapore with either my family or friends, calling at VivoCoty is always on our to-do list. The place is really a shopper’s paradise with its multitude of shops. Spending a day at VivoCity is never enough for me. It is so amazing that I can shop, dine and be entertained all in one place,” said Pham Thu Tra, a frequent shopper of VivoCity in Singapore.

A new shopping destination in Vietnam

VivoCity is developed and managed by Mapletree, a leading Asia-focused property investment, development, and capital management company.

VivoCity has more than 100,000 square meters of net leasable area with over 330 retail, food and beverage and entertainment outlets.

It has scooped many accoladesincluding as one of the World’s Top 10 Retail Destinations, and awards for being one of the Top 3 Best Shopping Centers, and the Singapore Service Class award.

Last year, VivoCity saw 54 million shoppers and generated $693 million in sales.

The VivoCity brand has expanded to three major cities in China, and by the first half of 2015, Mapletree will tie the knot with Saigon Co.op, one of Asia Pacific’s Top 500 Retailers and Vietnam’s top retailer, to develop and manage SC VivoCity, which will be located in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 7.

With Mapletree’s expertise in developing large-scale projects and commercial complexes in various Asian countries, as well as Saigon Co.op’s experience in retail and real estate investment in Vietnam, this partnership is expected to bolster commercial activities in Ho Chi Minh City, while offering consumers new services and international retail standards.

Multi-dimensional shopping experience

SC VivoCity is envisioned as a one-stop family lifestyle destination mall that offers a strong mix of shopping, dining and entertainment options.

It will also provide a vibrant shopping environment for sophisticated local and international communities.

The five-storey mall will have 62,000 square meters of exciting retail space offering the latest fashion, entertainment and lifestyle options, as well as a hypermarket, education center, and food and beverage outlets.

SC VivoCity will be positioned along Nguyen Van Linh Boulevard in Ho Chi Minh City’s District 7.

The district features a strong representation of multinational corporations and international schools (Japanese, Taiwanese, Korean and American), an international hospital, commercial zones, and golf courses catering to both the expatriate community and residents of the Phu My Hung new urban development.

SC VivoCity, embracing the successful attributes of the award-winning VivoCity as Singapore’s largest retail destination, is easily accessible and well connected to other districts via bridges and expressways.

It aims to create a vibrant, multi-experience destination that will constantly surprise visitors with its mix of unique, ever evolving and refreshing, new to market retail and lifestyle brands and concepts.

It features wide, open spaces for relaxation and entertainment, and a year-round calendar of festivals and events that will draw repeat visits from both local residents and foreign visitors.

With multiple retail zones to offer different shoppers, the offerings at SC VivoCity will allow visitors to shape their personal Vivo experiences.

SC VivoCity is the first phase development of Saigon South Place, a 4.4 ha integrated mixed-use project in Ho Chi Minh City.

Besides SC VivoCity, Saigon South Place will house Grade-A office buildings and internationally operated serviced apartments, aimed at creating a cosmopolitan environment that will nurture one’s passion to work, live and play in style.
