Overview

Vattanac Capital is Phnom Penh's most prestigious commercial address. Rising to 187.3m, this landmark development is designed and constructed to the highest international standards for Cambodia's emerging business and leisure community.

The building, which will be LEED certified, consists of two impressive towers and a glass and steel podium; Vattanac Capital Tower 1 is a 38 floor skyscraper with Grade A offices, luxury retail and world-class serviced apartments. Vattanac Capital Tower 2 is a 6 floor Grade A floating office with generous ceiling heights and raised floors purposely designed as trading floors. The curving podium has 3 floors of retail offering cafes, restaurants and luxury retail boutiques providing a high-class shopping experience.


Office
The two office towers provide whole floors of 1,461 to 1,769 sq.m. which can be subdivided into office suites of 100 sq.m. This development, which will be LEED certified, will satisfy the demands of multi-national occupiers.

Retail
32 retail units spread over 3 floors, set within a podium with up to 28.8m ceiling height with air conditioning and large open space. The design has been carefully considered to create a range of retail services, zoned to enhance the retail experience.

Service Apartment
An internationally branded serviced apartment operator will be selected to manage a luxury serviced apartments component in the high zone of Vattanac Capital Tower 1. There are studios, 1-bedroom units and 2-bedroom units in the serviced apartments zone. This is Phnom Penh's best accommodation for professionals and executives.

because of financial crisis, right?
This is part of the reason, office demand remains low so there is no point to rush off finish up the tower.

Once the tower completed, it will be impossible for anyone to see the train station far from the Preah Sisovath street. This tower actually block the whole train station behind.

I am really disappointed with the location.

When train station going to more, and more to where?
There is no used to relocate the to train station, since the current location is so strategic - it is actually the best location for a train station.

Wow!!! really??? I agree with you. I know that this area is going to be the banking district in Phnom Penh but why that exact location? How can the city allow this type of construction on this spot??? :nuts:
It is difficult to find such a huge plot in the city center.

This kind of construction will only happen with coruptxxn. :lol:

It is possible that the building can be completed by September of 2012. The foundation, which takes the longest time, is about to be completed. It not, all the floors should reach the peak.
I think that is possible, only when there are sufficient workers to work 24/7 routinely.

Otherwise don't get too optimistic, my guess is mid 2013.

Wow..... really? Posco E&C? I guess they are working with many projects in Phnom Penh. :cheers:

Good news! Maybe construction will be completed in time.

Was it recently that the company put up the new fencing with Posco E&C logo on it?
Posco E&C is working on this project and Star River. It seems their developer is confident with the property market outlook in Cambodia.

Yes, the new fence was up few weeks ago :)

I am suspicious of the plan. The picture on the wall does not tell the whole story.
This building might be taller than 38 stories. I think the owner probably has something to hide by showing picture of the building in two halves.
The top half serve as office spaces, and the bottom half will house a shopping center.

The owner probably want to show up the shopping center portion in this pic.
