After collecting a series of 'golden' land lots in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Masterise Homes pursued the strategy of selling luxury apartments at unprecedentedly high prices.
Masterise Homes has just received the transfer of two more land plots with a total area of more than 7 hectares in the core of the urban center of Vinhomes Grand Park (Thu Duc City, Ho Chi Minh City) by Green City Development Joint Stock Company - a member of Vinhomes. investor. This enterprise plans to build a project in the direction of a high-class compound area with a scale of 10 apartment blocks with 22-39 floors.

Initially, this project was invested by Ba Son Corporation, but later, Ho Chi Minh City Investment, Trade and Service Joint Stock Company (Vincentra) was approved to invest in this project with a total capital of nearly VND 30,000 billion. . By the fourth quarter of 2016, Vincentra subdivided into eight land lots and separated from this grand project for new legal entities to own. Through the hands of many owners, but these 8 land lots have not had much change in construction progress.
Until 2018, a plot of land in this project belonged to the investor from Hong Kong, Alpha King, with the expected development into The Centennial Saigon apartment project. At that time, the project surprised with the selling price of the apartment up to 10,000 USD (about 230 million VND per m2). However, Alpha King did not continue to develop the project but transferred it to a legal entity related to the Masterise Homes ecosystem.
The 4-facade complex, opposite Ben Thanh market, was formerly known as The Spirit of Saigon, formerly invested by a subsidiary of Bitexco Group, now also owned by Masterise Homes and renamed One Central.
In addition, The Sun Tower Ba Son project - a 55-storey building in Ba Son port area or Lumière Riverside - a prime plot of land in District 2 is also in the "collection" of this developer's land fund.

The land lot of more than 4,071 m2 is expected to develop this project into a 9-storey building with 5 basements, including a complex of commercial centers, high-class offices, and luxury apartments.
Not only owning a series of land plots in a prime location, Masterise Homes also attracted attention when announcing a record selling price of up to several hundred million dong per m2.
