ICC-Kajima, a joint venture between Indochina Capital and Japanese Kajima Corporation, on April 11, 2019, hosted the groundbreaking ceremony for Wínk Saigon Center Hotel and announced the appointment of Newtecons, a subsidiary of Coteccons, as the main contractor for the project.
“This is a key milestone for the first ICC-Kajima project. After carrying out a thorough tender process, Newtecons has been appointed for basement superstructure and masonry works,” noted Peter Ryder, CEO of Indochina Capital and chairman of ICC-Kajima.
Newtecons have worked on a series of reputable projects in Vietnam, including Landmark 81, Masteri Thao Dien, Casino Nam Hoi An and Forest in the Sky Residences at Flamingo Dai Lai. ICC-Kajima expects Newtecons to complete their work in November 2019 and is currently tendering the MEPF package (mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire) for the project.
The hotel is set to open in the second quarter of next year, and shortly thereafter, will be followed with Wínk Hotels in Hanoi, Danang, Hai Phong and other domestic markets.
Tran Kim Long, general director of Newtecons, committed to ensuring the highest aesthetical and technical standards for the project.
Wínk Saigon Center Hotel is located in a rapidly gentrifying area in District 1, Ho Chi Minh City’s central business district.
It includes 237 rooms offering modern design, a hip interactive lobby, a coworking space, innovative food and beverage concepts, cutting edge technology and beautifully appointed minimalist-style guestrooms.
The Wínk brand represents the power and tenacity of the Vietnamese people, catering to their fast-paced lifestyle and their growing awareness and interaction with the world at large. Wínk aims to champion the affordable luxury segment in Vietnam, with a prominent focus on delivering an exciting lifestyle experience.
Wínk Hotels is a key component of ICC-Kajima's development program, and the brand targets building as many as 20 Wínk Hotels over the next five to seven years in Vietnam’s primary and secondary cities, with potential expansion into neighboring markets, such as Cambodia and Laos.
