Awarding EDGE certificate to representatives of The Habitat.

The Habitat Binh Duong is a residential development developed by VSIP J.V., Sembcorp Properties and MC Development Asia; designed by PTW Architects (Australia).

This project consists of 3 towers, starting brick work in October 2018. The topping out ceremony and receiving EDGE certification for The Habitat is a mark of success in the construction process. Basically, the civil work was completed on time and moved into the finishing work. It is expected that the project will be handed over on committed schedule in March 2020.

How prestigious is EDGE certification?

In 2017, The Habitat Phase I was awarded “Best Mid End Condo Development” by PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards – Asia’s leading real estate awards programme. From the success of Phase I, The Habitat Phase II has made a breakthrough with the recognition of the Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies (EDGE) standard and is considered the first ‘’green’’ building in Binh Duong.

The Habitat Binh Duong Phase II – Perspective

EDGE standard is recognized since the project development starts from the process of basic design, civil work, finishing work to the stage of operation and management due to being highly effective in use of energy and water savings, and less embodied energy in materials.

This is a green building certification system for emerging markets by IFC – a member of World Bank Group.

The Habitat achieved a 20% reduction in energy, water savings and materials consumption as compared to conventional buildings.

The three residential towers meet the rigorous EDGE standard, with external shading devices and insulated roofing to keep units cool, while all units have energy-saving lighting with lighting controls. The resource-efficient units also provide residents with lower utility bills. In addition to open green spaces to enjoy the outdoors, residents have access to amenities within the building.

Satisfying urban thirst in apartment market

Binh Duong currently has 28 industrial parks with more than 270,000 FDI enterprises. The industrial development has brought thousands of investors, business owners, and foreign experts coming to Binh Duong for business and urban living.

As a result, the accommodation demand for expert community with safe, convenient living conditions and matching diversified cultures has also created the “thirst” of the high-end apartment market.

This puts forward a strong evidence base from the success of The Habitat phase I, which was completed and handed over to customers in March 2017. To date, all apartments have been fully occupied with the majority of local and foreign experts working in VSIP  and neighboring areas.

The Habitat phase II has completed the civil work with 460 units along with lots of facilities such as landscape garden, 25-meter swimming pool, BBQ garden, gym room, lobby, 24/7 3-layer security system, etc.

The Habitat Binh Duong is located at No.8, Huu Nghi Boulevard, Thuan An City, Binh Duong, VSIP I frontage, including 11 towers. After phase I and II, The Habitat phase II with 6 towers will be introduced in the upcoming time with unique design, integrated public facilities such as 5-star lobby, kindergarten, clinic, yoga room and outdoor fitness area, infinity pool and Singapore-based waterfall.
