Steel giant Hoa Phat Group wants to build several major urban areas 300-500 hectares in size in the next 10 years as part of its diversification plans.

The company is looking for potential locations, it said in a recent report.

Last year its subsidiaries bid for construction of projects in the northern provinces of Hung Yen, Phu Tho and Bac Giang.

One of them is the 262-hectare Bac Pho Noi Urban Area in Hung Yen with malls, offices, apartment buildings, and villas.

The first phase of the project is set to cost VND6.5 trillion ($276.30 million), and basic infrastructure is now complete.

Though Hoa Phat has been involved in property development for 21 years, its activities were mostly in Hung Yen and Ha Nam Provinces and involved a total area of 1,100 hectares.

It also has four small apartment projects in Hanoi.

Last year property, mostly industrial complexes, fetched it revenues of VND1.43 trillion, or 1% of its total revenues, and 3% of its profits.

It plans to expand its Yen My 2 industrial complex in Hung Yen this year, and have a total of 10 industrial complexes within a decade.
