There’s a new kid on Saigon’s commercial real estate block and the newcomer is turning heads. OfficeHaus, a modernist marvel opening in Saigon’s ‘green lung’ in late 2021, hopes to revolutionize the way the city works. A handsome Bauhaus-inspired 7-storey building located within Celadon City, OfficeHaus has residential zones, the country's largest Aeon Mall and Tan Son Nhat International Airport all within easy reach. Formed for function and built to be affordable, it offers a LEED-certified, human-scale alternative outside of the downtown core.
Follow Vietcetera’s ‘Only With OfficeHaus’ series where we try to envision what the new office landscape will look like and explore Vietnam’s new urban developments.
As a responsible town-maker with a vision of creating green spaces and integrated facilities for modern-day cities, Gamuda Land has adapted sustainable values through to Celadon City. An integrated, self-contained township just 20 minutes away from Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Celadon City is an oasis outside of the city core providing a holistic living and working experience away from the hustle and bustle of Saigon.
A winner of multiple industry accolades such as “Best High-End Condo Landscape Architectural Design” and “Best Master Plan Design” , Celadon City is promising an environmentally-sustainable and holistically-planned township to facilitate health and eco-modern living.
Every single development of Gamuda Land, from Malaysia to Vietnam, has a thoughtfully designed master plan. It takes into consideration everything from landscaping and infrastructure needs to the modern comforts and premium amenities, making it the perfect place that people want to be a part of and where they want to grow up and grow old.
A simple, yet highly visible example of this is the walkability and bikeability of Celadon City. Thanks to a logical system that has the roads arranged in such a way where residents can safely walk or bike from their front door to the parks, the lakes and the town square, navigating Celadon City on foot is literally a walk in the park.
There are always golf buggies on standby too, should residents choose to catch a ride on one.
The promise of green living
Delivering on the promise of green living, residential areas of Celadon City’s urban township encompass the gorgeous emerald lake and idyllic park. The scenery almost mimics Da Lat's famous Xuan Huong Lake, except instead of loud trafficked roads, residential buildings here circle meandering nature trails; and instead of touristy horse-carriage rides, residents can make friends with flocks of resident geese.
Whether it's playing checkers on the lake-side marble tables, gathering with friends for a perfectly peaceful picnic under the lofty elder trees, or even renting out one of Celadon City’s communal gazebos for a special-occasion BBQ cookout, there are countless ways residents can enjoy the eco-friendly township.

Everything from sports and entertainment to education, healthcare, and work
AEON Tan Phu Celadon Mall
Residents are just a five-minute buggy ride away from AEON MALL Tan Phu Celadon, Vietnam's first ever one-stop shopping mall.
Featuring more than 200 specialized stores offering customers a variety of products, services and a unique shopping experience, the spacious mall has stores selling items from clothes to home goods. Post-shopping, residents are spoilt for choice at the mall's sprawling food court with all popular fast-food and restaurant chains present. They might even decide to book a ticket for the next showing of James Bond or a Vietnamese horror movie at AEON's impressive movie theater.
Educational and Medical Centers within Celadon City
For enhanced convenience, the township also offers fully-integrated educational and healthcare facilities. International schools such as Maple Bear Kindergarten, ILA English Centre, and soon-to-be-launched Asian International School offer comprehensive and advanced education for students of all ages, while Hoan My Medical Centre is just next door.
Celadon's Sports and Resort Club
Residents of Celadon City have the largest Sports and Resort Club in Saigon as their playground. Here they can enjoy everything from cooling off in the outdoor Olympic-standard swimming pool to a friendly game of badminton indoors.
The center is spacious, comfortable and spotless, and has a potential as a gathering spot for large groups (perhaps even sports tournaments) as it provides an abundance of amenities including tennis classes, gym memberships and even a sauna for those needing to blow off some steam.
Celadon's Cultural Village
Those artistically-inclined will find plenty to keep their hands busy at the soon-to-be Celadon Cultural Village – a beautiful and vibrant place celebrating the rich culture and history of Vietnam. It will be the perfect location for performances, family play zones, or a farmers market, and one that offers a unique dining, shopping and entertainment experience for all.
Watch this space: OfficeHaus
“Given the right tools, environment and atmosphere, every employee, from the intern to the CEO, can deliver toward the positive results and success of a company.” — OfficeHaus
In 2021, the epic development that is Celadon City will welcome a prominent new resident: the OfficeHaus. A modern-day, minimalist answer to a burgeoning city’s needs, it will offer office space in an eco-friendly environment that fosters productivity and happiness in equal measure.
Boasting the country's largest available floor plate for lease at 2,493 m2, OfficeHaus is an attractive solution for startups that might need to scale quickly, as well as for organizations who want their workers to enjoy a better life-work balance.
Future residents of Celadon City will be able to walk to work, while employees coming from other districts can take advantage of several metro links that will connect the development to Saigon’s downtown and other key commercial and residential areas.
