The building is amazing, a good move for Saigon and Vietnam! But where is the construction update?

So outta place within the neighborhood, even tho Q1 is already the most pretigious... maybe it'll look better across the river in the new development?

O and btw get with the times... it's been Ho Chi Minh City for a long time... no more Saigon :-/

btw: Ho Chi Minh City/ Saigon same thing...infact the center of HCM city is called Saigon...beside though the city has been call HCM City for a long time, the majority of people in Saigon still call it by this name.

Very interesting tower. Certainly the most organic design I've ever seen - it really does look like a lotus bud (albeit with a helipad sticking out the side). SSP has this at 272m and 61 floors, Emporis (under name Bitexco Tower) 270m and 61 floors.
