The tower is COMPLETED now! Inauguration ceremony is taking place today, 31st October 2010, five years from its ground-breaking ceremony in May 2005 and only 22 months after the concrete core began to rise at the end of 2008.

City’s highest building opened

http://www.saigon-gpdaily.com.vn/Hoc...2010/10/86827/

Quote:
The Bitexco Group will organize an inauguration of the Ho Chi Minh City’s highest building – Bitexco Financial Tower today with a screen light show.


Bitexco Financial Tower is 262 meters tall with 68 floors including six floors of commercial area (more than 8,000 square meters) and a grade A office block with an area of 37,000 square meters.

In addition, more than 600 square meters are used for cuisine on the 48th floor and 49th floor restaurant area. The first helicopter pad in Vietnam was built on the 50th floor and an observatory in the 47th floor can see the city landscape.

The observatory will be open for visitors.

Mr. Vu Quang Hoi, chairman of Bitexco Group said the tower opening ceremony would create a strong impression for the public as well as foreign tourists to Vietnam.

The group has spent US$270 million for this project, which is located on Hai Trieu, Ngo Duc Ke and Ho Tung Mau streets in downtown HCMC.

The Bitexco Financial Tower inauguration is designed by Prisme International (France) with the screen light show, which will be held for the first time in Vietnam.
