Building Vietnam's tallest skyscraper

The United Kingdom-based architectural firm, Atkins Group began constructing the Vingroup skyscraper, Vincom Landmark 81, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Atkins is the lead architect on the project, and will be coordinating with Arup Group Limited, a design, engineering and business consultation firm, for the skyscraper’s structural design. 

The 81-storey building is expected to reach a height of 460 metres (becoming the tallest in the country) and will be developed in one of the most desired locations in Ho Chi Minh City. In addition to architecture, Atkins will also be responsible for the landscape design. The landmark structure’s front will face the Saigon River, while the site is facilitated  by major road and water transport connections. The building’s construction has been scheduled for completion in 2017.

Vincom Landmark 81 has been proposed to be a mixed-use development and will feature a modern and unusual architectural design. The design is expected to symbolise the diversity and development of the  Vietnamese city.

It will also have allocated spaces for a hotel and serviced residential apartments, as well as an extensive shopping centre at its base with high-end retailers.
