Vingroup officially began construction of the tallest building in Vietnam, The Landmark 81 in Ho Chi Minh City.
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 sqm. 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 sqm. 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 center and apartment building in Vietnam and the highest restaurant and bar in Southeast Asia.
