Big ambition, big challenge

NovaGroup expands into many seemingly unrelated fields but is in fact associated with the core field of real estate project development. The services and facilities that this Group expands will contribute to completing a closed ecosystem, helping to fully meet all the needs of residents, and at the same time exploiting the maximum revenue from it. In the immediate future, utilities will be put into operation at key projects such as Aqua City, NovaWorld Ho Tram, NovaWorld Phan Thiet.

This is also the strategy that real estate giants like Vingroup pursue. Residents living in Vinhomes, going to Vinschool, getting medical treatment at VinMec, going to VinMart supermarket, shopping at Vincom commercial center, traveling to Vinpearl, having fun in Vinpearland, riding a VinFast, etc. are “closed” models. secret” that billionaire Pham Nhat Vuong is aiming for.

However, the large scale will come with great challenges in terms of effective management and operation. Vingroup also sold VinCommerce – the operator of VinMart, VinMart + supermarkets to Masan or stopped producing VinSmart mobile phones.

One of the newly opened Nova Market supermarkets

Recently, Novaland has continuously made moves to expand and launch new services. Most recently, the group has the first 3 Nova Market stores in Ho Chi Minh City, or shakes hands with many famous F&B brands, deploys emergency medical services by plane in its urban areas, etc.

In the period of 2021 – 2025, Novaland aims to introduce 100,000 products to the market with a total expected value of VND 600,000 billion. Novaland said that when completing the infrastructure and accompanying utilities, bringing more value to the project, residents, investors as well as visitors to NovaWorld urban areas, the property value above could be even higher.
