The scale of the work does not affect the architectural landscape of Ba Dinh center.
However, according to documents just published by the National Archives Center I, the old factory was built by the French at 61 Tran Phu in the 1920s of the 19th century. The work is 100 years old with historical imprints. special history and before being demolished, this is one of the rare old French works that still retains its intact appearance.

At the same time, this place is also adjacent to Hang Day stadium, stations of urban railway lines Cat Linh – Ha Dong, Nhon – Hanoi station. Therefore, the traffic density is very high, if a project of 11 floors and six basements is placed in this area, it will inevitably lead to traffic conflicts and cause congestion.
In terms of architecture and landscape, architect Tung said that around this area, there are low-rise buildings, tile roofs, yellow painted walls, typical of ancient French architecture such as the Ministry of Justice building, Saint Paul Hospital, the houses. French villa garden (embassies of other countries…). Further away is the working headquarters of central agencies, Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum. Especially the National Assembly House, which shows the power of the people…
“Every city is a chain connecting the past, present and future. Ba Dinh center is extremely important, so each planning project must rely on the existing landscape, not break that landscape “- Architect Tung said and suggested that this land plot should be reserved for construction projects. public areas such as parks, planting trees to ensure the landscape for the area.
