News Release



JLL Vietnam

​Deal volumes remained considerable in 2Q16, with foreign investors taking up the majority on the buy side and Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) still the most desirable destination. Also, the quarter's investment deals were diversified, with a good variety of asset and property types transacted and investors from many countries.

Notable transactions recorded in 2Q16 included the G Homes plot in District 2, HCMC (residential development site), the Tran Hung Dao site in District 1, HCMC (commercial development site), Kumho Asiana Plaza in District 1, HCMC (mixed-use property, including office, retail, hotel and serviced apartments) and International Centre Building in Hoan Kiem District, Hanoi (office property). The purchases in these transactions were all foreign investors. Apart from these, there were some other deals between local developers, two of the latest being the Dat Xanh Group's purchase of residential development sites, one in District 2 and the other in Thu Duc District.

The investment market is likely to remain active in the coming quarters, thanks to the large growth momentum in Vietnam in recent quarters amid the lower activity in the region.
