I’m back from Vietnam! What an awesome trip that was (and I have a lot more to say), but for now, let’s get back in the swing of things with a new BGC construction update for February 2020.
While walking through the neighborhood, I realized that a new Watsons store was open, and lo and behold, this also meant that the doors to the “still in construction” Big Apple Mall were also accessible to the public.
Big Apple Mall
I went inside for the first time ever, today.
This is not necessarily a ginormous mall by any means, but it was still cool to check out, since I haven’t really ever had too many opportunities in the past to wander/explore a mall that was still very much in the development phase.
And plenty dark too.
Still, the general outline/foundation is well-established at this stage of the game, though.
The escalators are in place too!
So fresh and so clean…
Further, I live only about 5 minutes away, so the added convenience of having even more shops readily available at my fingertips is exciting, no doubt.
Again, it’s a small mall.
Here’s the view from the outside.
Trabaho, trabaho, trabaho!
And the progress made to date on the associated residential towers; the first two are done (or mostly done) now.
The other two towers (4 in total) still have a ways to go…
Real estate is all about: location, location, location
Yup, I’ve still got a lot to say about Vietnam (particularly Ho Chi Minh City), but all things considered, I’m really glad to be back in BGC, again.
BGC is really something special and it’s gonna only get better moving forward from here.
I’ll have more new construction updates ready for you later this month, or early next month. For now, this is the latest BGC new construction update for February 2020.
Keep up the fight!
