City's tallest building project closer to reality


HCMC's tallest building project is getting closer to reality as the city government has allocated 5,000 square meters of land in town to local property developer Bitexco.

The site of the 60-story build*ing, excluding six underground floors for parking, is surrounded by Hai Trieu, Ho Tung Mau and Ngo Duc Ke streets in District 1's Ben Nghe Ward.

Bitexco will spend US$96million on the building to be supported by a steel framework and covered by glass.

The first four floors will be for showrooms of cars and high-end products, and the remainder for of*fice space and convention centers.

Speaking at a meeting with the relevant authorities over the project in early February, city chair*man Le Thanh Hai threw support behind the project as it was totally financed by local capital.

Work on the building will start late next month if site clearance and compensation are completed as scheduled, and will take 30 months, according to the investor.

This will be the country's second tallest building behind the 65 -story Hanoi City Complex in Hanoi in*volving Luxembourg's SA Coralis, which was licensed by the Ministry of Planning and Investment in late January. The Hanoi City Complex will cost US$115 million.

The 33 -story Saigon Trade Center in HCMC is now the country's tallest building.

Bitexco now operates the 19-storey Bitexco building at 19-25 Nguyen Hue Boulevard in District 1 its first property project. More than 6,000 square meters of office space in the building has been leased out since it started operation a year ago.

The company is developing two apartment buildings at the moment -The Manor in HCMC worth US$85 million and The Manor in Hanoi valued at US$125 million.

House of Parliament

Hanoi - North Vietnam

An artificial modelled landscape with organically flowing contours built from local limestone surround the new house of parliament with two artificial mountains. Posts arranged on a grid support a cloud-shaped glass roof . The landscape rises to a height of 5.50 m. The differences in height produce dynamic changes in views towards surrounding historical structures.

Local tall tree types in groups spread through the site, especially in areas planned using Feng-Shui principles . The building ensemble uses Asian design principles coupled with the technical efficiency and functional clarity of western design. The landscape architectonic concept infiltrates the spirit of the place and generates a growing energy.

There's a cool restarant at the top of the trade center. Quite nice.

The real estate market has essentially imploded in Vietnam in the past year although you won't find the reality of that anywhere in print in Vnam. It is a reality however as it is in China as well.

Rentals are moving well though with a huge amount of people moving to Vietnam for various reasons.
