Hanoitourist and Global Consultant Network LLC signed an agreement to develop the project back in 2007. At the time, the construction was expected to take place in two phases, the second of which would have included the hotel. The project was poised to open in 2010, but was significantly delayed. As such, Korean Global Consultant Network will replace the LCC to implement the project.
