Ho Chi Minh City is getting a new shopping centre, Central Premium Mall, in District 8, next year. Set to open in the third quarter of next year, the six-storey mall spans 40,000sqm, and is expected to welcome more than 3 million visitors annually. The first and second levels will host 200 kiosks from fashion retailers, a supermarket and luxury cafes.
The third level is for dining, with more than 30 restaurants, including China’s Melie Dimsum, America’s HolyCow, Korean BBQ Gangnam, together with sushi and buffet restaurants. The fourth and fifth floors are for entertainment with a children’s playground Kid World, spas, Mexican-style Ritacita Bar, Beer Club Vuvuzela, Bar Redbull and Bar Rocco, among others. A cinema will occupy the whole 4000sqm sixth floor.
Project owner Quoc Cuong Gia Lai says the shopping centre will be managed by a reputable international company, whose identity has yet to be revealed. The mall has cost VND1 trillion (US$43 million) to build. Central Premium Mall occupies the lower levels of the Central Premium apartment complex currently under construction. A roof-topping ceremony was held recently and apartments are expected to be handed over to residents by the third quarter of next year. It will be managed by Savills Vietnam.
