Vingroup begins construction of tallest building in Vietnam.








Vingroup officially began construction of the tallest building in Vietnam up to now, The Landmark 81 in Ho Chi Minh City on December 13.

The 350-metre tall and 81-storey building is built on the bank of the Saigon River. It is situated in the high-class and multi-functional ecological urban area, Vinhomes Central Park and is scheduled to be inaugurated by late 2017.

The Vinhomes Central Park covers an area of 141,000 square metres. It consists of functional spaces including hotels, apartments, shopping centres, restaurants, bars and an observatory centre.

In particular, a five-star hotel with 450 rooms will spread 1,000 square metres and look out on a 360° view of the city. Vincom Centre shopping mall covers a total area of 59,000 square metres. A large square and a modern fountain system will connect the residential quarter with a green park and Saigon river.

The Landmark 81 is expected to break other records such as the highest observatory centre and apartment building in Vietnam and the highest restaurant and bar in Southeast Asia.[/B]

that is a design, I would love as a world's tallest building! can't believe it is only 350m tall, but then again that is to the roof and with the spire it will certainly be over 400m. It's like a little Burj Khalifa :cheers:

Frankly, a little too much like Burj Khalifa, like someone took a photocopier to it and programmed it to reduce 50%. Remember, also, that Burj Khalifa at least supposedly takes inspiration from Islamic aesthetics; how many Muslims are there in Vietnam?

There's still so much space for incorporating East Asian aesthetics into skyscraper design. As far as I know, we only have Taipei 101 and the Gangnam Finance tower that do it. Where's some more of that?

The design of this building is an utter utter disaster. Vingroup, the investor has a reputation of having ugly projects. This pure copy of Burj Khalifa is just a disgrace. Hope the design is gonna change. I don't wanna see an ugly copy of BK on a daily basis.

Where is this in relation to the Bitexco tower? Someone please post a map!
About 2 miles to the north.
