The title of news say that :Cambodia boasts plans for Asia's tallest building.
I'm feel so shy that the title of news say that. They should say: Cambodia boasts plans for ONE OF Asia's tallest building or Cambodia boasts plans for Asean's tallest building.
hahaha...the writer of this news maybe lack of general knowledge or even speaker.

Open your mind to the world and see other countries, learn more knowledge to analyze the situation of the society!

Developing the country not only relying in one direction, but all direction and resources.

Cambodia having vision to:

1- be one of the biggest rice export in the world by 2015
2- build the tallest building in Asia, not only Southeast Asia
3- be one of the most tourism destination in the world
4- ..etc,.

Only Khmer will be proud of their own country to have all those thing mention above, but khmer anemy will not happy with it.

That Okey, I just wonder that why he didn't say ONE of the tallest building in Asia.

Or he just say for some people who don't anything outsite Cambodia. (sorry to say that)
Or he just say for some benefit of his politic.

Just think that:
Tallest Building in the world like in Dubia. (or Dubia is not Asia country?)
How many Tall buildings are under construction in China.
Or even how many buildings are under construction in S Korea.

Yeah, i dont understand what he mean too. But that is what he said. The currently construction in tokyo 624m. And it will complete soon. And even some project in malaysia, phillipine, Thailand, they are all around 600m up. So how can this kind of 555m become the tallest while it is just approved?

It will happen bz everything already planed

I think the building that he mentioned is the one at the right side of the image below " It is called the observation tower "
Listen to what he said carefully then you will know. It dosen't matter whether it will be the highest tower in Asia or not. The thing is it will be one of the highest tower in Asia that are going to be build in Cambodia and we are Cambodian, so we feel happy about it.



Asking whether it is going to happen or not, you can discover every pages of this forum then you will see Canadia tower, Gold Tower 42, Camko City, Vatanak tower...etc,. from this will answer to your question.
It dosen't matter whether those projects are going to finish soon or not, but for sure it will be finish and located in Cambodia.

Cambodia is going to be one of the country that produce oil or gass.
Cambodia is going to has it's own hydroelectric.
Cambodia is going to has it's own brand of rice.
manny other thing....

I hope our friends can post more progressing photos on every pages so the other friends can get the answer from their wonder.
Why Cambodia is the kingdom of wonder:

Angkorwat the world biggest religiouse temple.
How many places that you can find the river that flow with two directions but Makong river.
Phnom Penh, one of the oldest city in Southeast Asia.
Dinosoure had been found by Khmer ancester since Angkor period by carve it's picture on the stone wall of Angkor and still exist today.
Where else in the world that you can find Koprey (wild cow), but Cambodia ...etc,.


bz you never expect about it to happen, but it is true to happen.

Welcome to explore your wonder !

Tower may not be tall order



Thursday, 02 September 2010 15:01 Soeun Say and Catherine James

INDUSTRY experts from around the world said yesterday that a proposed 555-metre tower on Phnom Penh’s Koh Pich was technically possible, but raised questions about the economics of the plan.

Dennis Poon of Thornton Tomasetti, the company behind some of the highest buildings in the world, including Taipei 101, said the project was possible with the right team and materials to contain costs and avoid problems down the track.

Key considerations for Poon were the choice of materials and necessity for cooperation between structural engineers, architects and the owner.

Having built at least eight 100-plus-storey buildings, he emphasised that local conditions were key to any design.

“According to my experience, each project of this type must be designed specifically to fit the local site conditions, its local construction constraints, soil conditions, materials availability and the country’s culture.”

The proposed location of the tower, Diamond Island, was also discussed by engineers contacted by the Post.

Rainer Israel, director of Cambodian engineering firm iLi Consulting Engineers Mekong, said that the proposal was ambitious, but not impossible, despite Cambodia’s less-developed construction sector.

“You will certainly not be able to do it with Cambodian resources only, but that’s not unusual. Even Dubai [which built the world’s tallest building] had to import materials,” he said yesterday.

“It’s quite normal to have foreign contractors, designers etc.”

He said that if the site was to be Diamond Island, developers would need to be mindful that the isle was not stable, having formed less than 100 years ago.

“The Mekong keeps reshaping. In the long run, the island sure wouldn’t stay an island,” he said.

“You would have to protect it – which is possible. If you had a high value of property on it then it makes sense to protect it from erosion,” he said. The road infrastructure would also need serious consideration, he said.

However, he felt that a more interesting question related to its economic viability.

“This question [of economic feasability] is not the business we are in, but I think the more interesting question here is will you have a market for it? Where are the tenants? How would you even fill a place like that, given all the other places we still haven’t filled?”

Yim Sovan, spokesman for the opposition Sam Raisey Party, posed similar questions, voicing concern about building such a tower when the capital’s current high-rises were plagued with vacancies.

He said it was more economically important for the government to develop the agriculture sector, education and healthcare.

Nick Owen, Shanghai-based Asia editor for the Economist Intelligence Unit, raised his own questions about financing such an enormous
endeavour.

“I haven’t seen details of the project, but I’m slightly surprised by the amount [US$200 million for stage one] because the construction industry in Cambodia and indeed globally has faced increasing challenges in securing financing for these projects,” he said yesterday.

“Investors have been looking much more carefully before committing capital to these sort of projects.”

But local businessmen and interested domestic parties welcomed the idea. Sung Bonna, president and CEO of Bonna Realty Group, said yesterday that the plan was “a good sign”, and that he hoped that construction on the building would start soon.

Ching Chhom Mony, dean of architecture at the Royal University of Fine Art, said that building on site would have “no problems” as a result of advances in both science and technology.

Hun Sen unveils plan for world’s second-tallest tower


Thursday, 02 September 2010 15:00 Soeun Say and Catherine James


PRIME Minister Hun Sen yesterday outlined plans to build a 555-metre-tall tower on Phnom Penh’s Diamond Island.

The structure, if built today, would be the second-tallest in the world, according to Post research.

“Cambodia will build the tallest private building in Asia,” the premier said at the graduation ceremony for the Human Resources University, held at the National Institute of Education.

He said talks about the construction and value of the project would be held with ministries, institutions and authorities. If built, the high-rise would dwarf the Kingdom’s tallest skyscraper, 118.1 metre Canadia Tower.

Discounting towers now under construction, it would be the second-tallest in the world, overtaking Taiwan’s Taipei 101 tower at 509 metres. The world’s tallest building is Dubai’s Burj Khalifa tower, standing 828 metres.

Dennis Poon, managing principal of Thornton Tomasetti, who led the structural engineering team for the design of Taipei 101, estimated that costs for a building of this size would range from US$500 million to $900 million, depending on complexity. He said designing such a building could take a year, with another four years for construction.

Representatives for developer Overseas Cambodia Investment Corp – the firm behind Canadia Tower – said that plans were already afoot.

Touch Samnang, project manager and architect of OCIC’s Diamond Island, said that the company was preparing for construction and had an architectural proposal in place.

“We are studying the land,” he said, and the firm planned to spend $200 million on the building’s first step. “We have enough possible [capital investment] to build. We are not looking for investment partners. But for the technical construction we will need [help] from abroad.”

“We’re looking for a construction company to build it,” he said, and highlighted Korean firms’ expertise.

The building would house commercial areas such as shopping and exhibition centres, residential space and an observation area, Samnang said.


^ It's the Observation Tower they are building so it is possible for 200 million!!

hi pung10 !! Welcome back ..

This project is built by a private company, so it is up to them and decide whether or not to go ahead with the project.
