Construction on the Atkins-designed Vincom Landmark 81 building is well underway. Atkins is the lead architect working closely with Arup for the structural design, one of many global projects on which the two British design companies are collaborating. Also involved is a third British construction group Mace, assisting with consultancy and project management. When completed, the skyscraper will be the tallest building in Vietnam at over 460m.
The 81-storey development is located in Vinhomes Central Park – one of the most prime locations in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Its frontage faces the beautiful Saigon River and is conveniently connected via major road and water transportation. Featuring a modern and unusual architecture design that symbolises the diversity and fast emergence of Ho Chi Minh City, this mixed-use development involves space for hotel, serviced residential apartment and retail. At the base of this skyscraper is a sumptuous shopping centre featuring the finest retailers under one roof for a top-class shopping experience. The 241,000m2 development will also feature contemporary landscape design that merges natural beauty into this building.
On 24 Feb, British Secretary of State for International Trade Liam Fox MP visited the site, describing it as an “incredible construction project” with UK companies at the fore.
