Landmark 81 To Be Tallest Building In Vietnam

Construction has begun on the Atkins-designed Vincom Landmark 81 - a supertall skyscraper located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.  Atkins is the lead architect working closely with Arup for the structural design.

With an expected height of 460m, this building will be the tallest building in Vietnam once completed, adding a new iconic landmark to Ho Chi Minh City’s ever growing skyline.

The 81-storey development is located in Vinhomes Central Park - one of the most prime locations in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Its frontage faces the Saigon River, and is conveniently connected via major road and water transportation.

Featuring a modern and unusual architecture design that symbolises the diversity and fast-emergence of Ho Chi Minh City, this mixed-use development involves space for hotel, serviced residential apartment and retail.

At the base of this skyscraper will be a luxury retail centre. The 241,000m2 development will also feature contemporary landscape design that merges natural beauty into this building.

Bertil de Kleynen, director of architecture and landscape for Atkins in Asia Pacific, said: “Our challenge was to create a unique and dynamic landmark tower design to support Vingroup’s vision for a high-end mixed use development. The tower is integrated into the public realm that addresses sustainable design challenges at various interfaces of the project.

The construction of Vincom Landmark 81 is expected to be completed in 2017.
