Socar Mall is situated in a prime location at the intersection of Mai Chi Tho and Nguyen Co Thach—two artificial main roads—so it can enhance the district’s connection with Ho Chi Minh City’s downtown and catchment areas. In the future, Socar Mall will set itself apart as a flagship shopping mall that will reposition the retail market in District 2 since it is situated in a developing vibrant area created by these two main routes.


Being a high-end shopping mall, Socar Mall has a modern and unique design. With a net lease area of approximately 40,000 sq. m. and comprising five commercial floors, Socar Mall integrates many shopping, entertainment and food facilities: The shopping mall is home to many leading domestic and international fashion and cosmetic brands, the restaurants in the food court serve high-class cuisine, and there is a cinema, a hypermarket, and a 900 sq. m. event hall, which can be used for social gatherings within the community.


In line with current trends and understanding the future of the retail industry, Socar Mall prioritizes more space for F&B and entertainment and limits other categories. This is done to encourage not only domestic retailers but international ones as well to occupy retail spaces at the project and provide consumers with outstanding services. Socar Mall aims to be a place with a strong connection to the community that has modern and reliable entertainment options, provides a satisfying shopping experience, and offers professional and dedicated services.


Tentatively scheduled to open in Q4 in 2020, Socar Mall is considered a promising new project, not only for the vibrant city of HCMC but also for District 2 in particular.


Ms. Vo Thi Phuong Mai, Associate Director and Head of Retail Consulting & Leasing Services for CBRE Vietnam said, “CBRE Vietnam is very proud to be an exclusive Leasing Management & Consultancy Agent for the Socar Mall project. We believe that with our dedicated and professional team’s seasoned experience in retail consultancy and leasing management and its understanding of the needs and trends of the retail market, CBRE will successfully complete the project, thereby providing customers with a fashionable shopping venue that is the ideal location to meet, share and experience one of the most unique and modern retail projects in Ho Chi Minh City.
