A piece of land at 2-4-6 Hai Ba Trung Street in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, which is a prime site in the city, has been left deserted for many years, causing huge wastefulness.

The 6,080-square-meter land lot is surrounded by four streets: Hai Ba Trung, Thi Sach, Dong Du, and Cong Truong Me Linh.

Fences surrounding the land lot have been smeared with paint and graffiti as there is no security guard at the site.

The site is overgrown with weeds with some being even taller than people.

The sidewalk of Thi Sach Street has been encroached on by an unauthorized parking area and a free toilet for residents and tourists.

The Land Fund Development Center under the municipal Department of Natural Resources and Environment received the land lot for management on October 11 last year.

The land lot is involved in a case in which it was turned into an asset of a private firm from a public property.

The Supreme People's Court in January 2022 decided to assign the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee to handle the land lot.

The Department of Natural Resources and Environment received the land lot on behalf of the People’s Committee and asked the Land Fund Development Center to manage it.
