He added that the building will be called the AMC office tower.

“We will build a green [environmentally friendly] building in Yangon using a steel structure,” he said. “I have never seen any environmentally friendly buildings in Yangon and we want to make one of the highest standard. We are cooperating with China Steel Structure Company, which will provide technical assistance,” he said.

However, U Than Myint, a spokesperson for the Committee for Quality Control of High-rise Building Projects, under Yangon City Development Committee, said the project did not have approval yet but some simple plans had been shown to the committee.

“We have not seen a detailed outline of the AMC tower project yet but we have had discussions with the company and the Taiwan experts. I think they are waiting for permission from YCDC,” he said.

U Yang Ho said the building will be constructed using environmentally friendly techniques and will integrate green friendly systems.

“Buildings with steel structures can be more environmentally friendly than reinforced concrete – and it can be done faster too,” he told The Myanmar Times.

The AMC office tower will be built to accommodate international companies and space will only be available for lease, not for sale, an AMC spokesperson said.

“We will build it with a hall type plan and allow tenants to decorate and divide the spaces as they require,” he said.

The architectural, structural and mechanical and electrical designs are all being supplied by the Taiwan firm and work on the project will begin in May.

The spokesperson said the 30-storey project is expected to be completed within two-and-a-half years. Each floor will cover 20,000 square feet and the compound measures 30,000 square feet.

He added that there will be three levels of underground parking. However, he would not divulge how much the project would cost.

“Taiwanese companies want to invest in Myanmar and we want to help China Steel Structure Co access this market,” he said.

China Steel Structure Co was a contractor for the 508-metre Taipei Financial Center Building.
