The Highlands of Parshall

Posted by admin

The Highlands of Parshall offer a unique investment opportunity in the heart of the North Dakota oil boom. Over the last few years communities in North Dakota have seen a significant increase in the need for common infrastructure to support thousands of employees brought in through the oil industry. This includes permanent housing, apartment buildings, restaurants, stores, and an increase to water and sewage capacities. The boom has been caused by new methods for extracting oil from reserves drilled years ago.

The Highlands of Parshall is an extension of Parshall, North Dakota. The planned development will bring in 520 residential housing units, 1,200 apartment units, 400 hotel rooms, commercial space, restaurant and store pads, community center, parks, and development of over 10 miles of roads, sidewalks and other amenities. This project is well situated to take advantage of huge demand and low competition for this type of a development.

The International Advisory Board Meets In New York City

Posted by admin

The International Advisory Board for the Nature, Culture, and Design (NCD) 2015 project recently convened in New York City to discuss the progress of one of the world’s largest mixed-use development projects being planned on the outskirts of Seoul in Guri City. The multibillion-dollar development project, called the Nature Culture and Design (NCD), will include the Guri World Design Center, an exposition center, hotels, retail, condominiums, single-family homes, foreigners commercial zone, design graduate school, cultural centers, and much more.

The primary purpose of the NIAB is to provide the Korean government with insight and guidance on the development of the Guri World Design Center and architecture and development from a global perspective.

In attendance, were Guri City mayor Young Sun Park, Steve Lim Chairman and CEO of Viva Vina, Inc located in Los Angeles, California, and Chang Kuk Ko, president of K&C Associates of Seoul, Korea. “We intend to transform Guri City to Asia’s leading destination for Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Exhibitions (MICE). Sustainable design will be an overriding initiative as we build for the future,” says Mayor Park.

Presenters at the meeting shared compelling data to support Guri City as an ideal location to build a design hub and destination in Asia. With 60 percent of the world’s population within six hours of Seoul and an impressive growth in exports, reflected in statistics that show 1962 exports at $50 million, and today’s exports at more than $500 billion, Guri City seems poised to support and grow a center of this magnitude.

Guri World Design Center

Posted by admin

Today, the most renowned and internationally known urban planning, architecture and interior design firms accommodate nearly 60 to 70% of the projects in Asia. As a result, the largest design market is located in Asia. In spite of the vast number for Asia’s hospitality design markets, there are no design centers related to hospitality expos, trade shows, and conferences, similar to the Chicago Merchandise Mart’s yearly program. As of now, this service is not provided in any Asian countries.

In order to solve this problem, we researched the hospitality design industry in the Asian market and determined Guri City to be the ideal location. Minutes from Seoul there is located approximately 1000 acres of prime development land along the Han River. This area has been, and is currently under a zoning that has not allowed any type of building and land development. Viva Vina and its partners are currently working with the South Korean Federal Government to re-zone this area for development. For additional information regarding the development of the Guri World Design Center please contact Viva Vina, Inc.

Canada Oil & Gas

Posted by admin

The Viva Vina Team recently visited Alberta, Canada to meet with several oil and gas production companies. The companies Viva Vina met with hold assets ranging from several million to several billion dollars. A few companies also offer advanced technologies for the production of oil and gas. These companies in Alberta offer investors several opportunities to participate in a booming oil and gas market in Western Canada.

Currently, Canada has about 179 billion barrels of established crude oil reserves, more than any other country in the world except Saudi Arabia. About 173 billion barrels of Canada’s oil reserves – or about 97% – is oil sands. Canada is the world’s seventh-largest producer of crude oil. Canada currently produces close to 2.6 million barrels of crude oil every day. About 1.8 million barrels per day of oil – or about two-thirds of Canada’s production is exported. Oil production is forecast to reach at least 4.0 million barrels per day by 2020. Much of Canada’s oil reserves and production come from the Province of Alberta.

Medical Device Development

Posted by admin

April 2011

In the current hospital environment, thousands of pharmacists, nurses, physicians and other caregivers may encounter a serious threat to their own physical and reproductive health, on a daily basis, often without even realizing it. Even though the hazardous nature of many drug compounds, such as chemotherapy, antivirals, antibiotics, hormones, nuclear medicine drugs, are well established, the US federal government estimates that 5.5 million healthcare workers continue to be exposed to these substances each year. The danger of exposure to these drugs can range from skin rashes, infertility and miscarriage, to birth defects, and possibly leukemia or other cancers. Studies have shown that traces of hazardous drugs have been found on floors and counters in hospital pharmacies, and on chairs and tabletops at the patient bedside. Furthermore, the widespread exposure of the healthcare providers to these drugs have been clearly established by studies that have detected hazardous drugs in the urine of workers who handled them, and also the urine of workers that did not directly handle these drugs.

Viva Vina has partnered with seasoned professionals in the medical device development industry to take advantage of a need for the improvement of medical devices. Viva Vina is excited about the opportunities they have to market and develop medical device equipment to divert risks associated with handling hazardous pharmaceuticals. Viva Vina has obtained patented technology for the development of innovative medical devices that promote health, safety, and ease-of-use. Viva Vina is offering investment opportunities for serious individuals and/or companies to promote and develop these medical devices that will provide immediate impact to the healthcare industry.

Renewable Diesel Production

Posted by admin

April 2011

The Viva Vina Team had a successful trip as they traveled to Europe earlier this month to meet with partners and business associates. The trip was centered on building a strategic partnership for the development of renewable diesel production facilities throughout the world. Renewable diesel is similar to biodiesel in that it is produced from renewable organic feedstock sources. Renewable diesel offers several environmental advantages and can be used to fulfill the same purposes as regular petroleum diesel, but with added benefits.

Viva Vina and its partners are proud to be able to promote this proprietary technology. Limited renewable diesel production facilities enable for very large market opportunities. Biodiesel has traditionally been the alternative diesel of choice. Viva Vina believes it will not be long before renewable diesel replaces biodiesel as the preferred organic diesel fuel. Renewable diesel has several benefits over biodiesel and petroleum diesel. These benefits range from helping the environment to overall performance enhancement. Viva Vina is excited at the opportunities they have to market and develop renewable diesel manufacturing facilities on an international scale.

April 2011

Viva Vina recently obtained exclusive rights to develop two Oil and Natural gas development properties. One property consists of more than 27,000 acres and the other property is made up of 1,000 acres. Both properties offer unique opportunities and have the potential for great financial upside.

After careful evaluation, Viva Vina was impressed with the locations of both properties and their proximity to proven oil and gas production. Both areas are adjacent to producing wells. These properties have established infrastructure to expedite the development process. Once the wells are producing there is also established transportation systems and services readily available. Viva Vina looks forward to be able to develop both properties in the near future.

Renewable Diesel Production

March 2011

The Viva Vina Team will travel to Europe to meet with potential strategic partners in the development of renewable diesel production facilities. Renewable diesel is similar to biodiesel in that it is produced from renewable organic feedstock sources. Renewable diesel offers several environmental benefits and can be used to fulfill the same purposes as regular petroleum diesel.

There are many ways that renewable diesel differs from biodiesel and petroleum diesel making it a far superior fuel. Renewable diesel technology can take an inferior raw material and make an enhanced fuel product. Renewable diesel production technology allows commonly produced waste sources to be used to make high quality renewable diesel products. Because of the abundance of waste sources that can be used in the production process, feedstock supply challenges can be averted. Viva Vina is excited about the opportunities presented by the proprietary information they hold in the future development of renewable diesel production facilities.

Oil and Natural Gas Development

Posted by admin

January 2011

Viva Vina is working with several companies to further the development of oil and natural gas reserves in the United States and Canada.

With the availability of advanced technologies and with the oil market on the rise, now is a great time to invest into oil. Areas that before were not economical to drill due to low oil prices or disparities in technology, now offer tremendous financial benefit. Unrest in the Middle East has also heightened the urgency for development of U.S. based oil and gas reserves which has opened great opportunities for investors. These are only a few reasons why oil and gas development is a high priority for Viva Vina.

Viva Vina has multiple oil and gas development companies seeking investment funds to expand production. These opportunities are available in areas where oil and gas production is proven as well as in areas where probability is extremely high for new discovery. With an infusion of capital these projects offer great returns and financial advantage.

If you have any questions regarding oil and natural gas development prospects please contact Viva Vina, Inc., at info@vivavinainc.com.

Viva Vina visits with Representatives from the State of Idaho

Posted by admin

December 2010

Viva Vina recently met with representatives from Idaho to discuss several potential business opportunities between South Korea and the State of Idaho.

Viva Vina is working to introduce various manufacturing projects as well as agricultural and dairy products from the State of Idaho to the Korean market and help cultivate multiple on-going business relationships. Viva Vina’s CEO, Mr. Steve Lim stated, “These relationships will be able to create new jobs and lower unemployment rates while offering Idaho’s business community an opportunity for higher profit margins”.

Viva Vina believes increased economic developments have given Asian based companies and investors more available spending power. Representatives from Viva Vina say “now is an excellent time to market and sell American made products to Asia, especially into the Korean market. Korea has become one of the world’s ten strongest economic powers in both the production and manufacturing of various merchandises as well as in overall spending. This presents excellent conditions for marketing products from the State of Idaho. In addition, Korea’s neighbors Japan and China both have great spending power and capacities to become excellent markets for goods originated in Idaho. These circumstances will open the door for Idaho based companies to expand marketing into Southeast and Pan Asia”.

Mr. Lim concluded his remarks by saying, “Viva Vina wants to introduce companies from Idaho to companies and investors in Korea to create joint venture opportunities. This will enable companies from Idaho to become more globalized and to have an edge over competitors throughout the world and to create additional markets for Idaho based products and merchandise”.
