Great building tower but it has a weird name. I thought all along HK is having a road project in Hanoi.

It's a street name, just like Tehran Road in Korea.

park hyatt is kinda like 'w hotel' in the starwoord-sheraton brand which markets themselves as boutique hotels. so i won't say park hyatt is better than or more luxurious compared to grand hyatt it's just that it provides a different kinda luxury.

Wow. Incredible! They installed the windows underneath the bamboo scaffolding already.

I think it will look good judging by that shot. There will be a high portion of glass for the entire facade.
