From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are very few or no other articles that link to this one.
Please help introduce links in articles on related topics. After links have been created, remove this message.

The Financial Tower is a skyscraper under construction in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Its location is in district 1 of the city. The construction addicated in September 2005 and due to be completed after 30 months. The owner is a Vietnamese company - Bitexco. The tower is located on an area of 6,000 m² with the floor area of over 100,000 m². Total cost reaches more than $120 million. Once completion, this will be the tallest building in Vietnam. The tower consists of 74 stories, 300 m in height, 7 basement of 30 m and a ground floor, all made of steel and glass structure. The tower will be shaped in a lotus petal. Lotus is a symbolic of Vietnamese culture. The Financial Tower will be the symbolic of Saigon's dynamic economy and will be for office and trade leasing.

[edit] Office demand in Ho Chi Minh City

Due to the rapid 2-digit growth of Ho Chi Minh City in particular and dynamic development of Vietnam in general, the construction for office in this city has seen a boom. The financial tower will help ease the fever of demand of office for rent in this city. The unit price of A grade office now in Ho Chi Minh City is around $25 to $30 monthly, depends to the location. Foreign and domestic enterprises have invested significantly in many building construction here.

Are you sure this one is 300m? If so, it needs to be moved to the Supertall forum. But Emporis lists this one at 292m and 61 floors.

I made a drawing of it already a few years ago. It is also called Bitexco Tower.

I don't think that Financial Tower is also called Bitexco Tower, because there's been already a Bitexco Tower in Saigon.

It's just like calling New York as New Amsterdam, or Tokyo as Edo, or Beijing as Beiping...

but I do apologize for saying "Deal with it"... it's too flamey :-p
Well. I have several Vietnamese friends, and not one of them call 'HCMC' Everyone calls it Saigon. I have a friend from somewhere between Nha Trang and Ninh Hoa and even that guy calls it 'Saigon'

I know that it you don't put 'tphcm' on the mail it will not get there, though.

I can still call 'Saigon River' 'Saigon Port' etc!!!
Didn't French occupiers call the city Sai Gon?
Should call it Gia Ðịnh.???? Original Name for the area??

If I ever fly there, I need to fly from LAX TO SGN!!!!

HCM would get me to Eil, Somalia!!!

BTW Beijing = Peking. Guangzhou = Canton (We still call 'Cantonese')
Bombay=Mumbai. Byzantium=Constantinople=Istanbul.


It is good that we don't say 'Leningrad' instead of 'St, Petersburg' anymore.

Wow I see the resemblance to Menara Telekom, except the Financial Tower is curveyer.

Wow, awesome tower for Saigon. I like the design of it, very futuristic. Also it gives Saigon a great addition to its skyline.

Until now, when Financial Tower is u/c, we still haven't known what its height is(260, 270, 290 or 300m), or how many floors it has(61,62,72,74,...)
