The 81-storey building in Vietnam is taking shape and it is located on the banks of the Saigon River. The 460-metre-high skyscraper in Ho Chi Minh City is designed by the British architect Atkins. The skyscraper will include a hotel, serviced residential apartments and a luxury shopping centre.

Bertil de Kleynen, director of architecture and landscape for Atkins in the Asia Pacific region says "Our challenge was to create a unique and dynamic landmark tower design to support Vingroup's vision for a high-end mixed-use development. The tower is integrated into the public realm that addresses sustainable design challenges at various interfaces of the project."
