Ho Chi Minh City’s glorious People’s Committee Building, one of the city’s most prominent landmarks, is home to the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee. Built between 1901 and 1908, the former Hôtel de Ville decorates the northwestern end of ÐL Nguyen Hue, but unfortunately the ornate interior is not open to the public. In 2015 the centre of ÐL Nguyen Hue was turned into a vibrant pedestrian-only mall bookended by a new statue of Ho Chi Minh to commemorate his 125th birthday.

Road access around the thoroughfare still courses with a kinetic river of two-wheeled traffic, especially on weekends. At the northeastern edge of ÐL Nguyen Hue adjoining Ð Dong Khoi, construction is ongoing for a central city station for Saigon's new metro system.
