The Atkins-designed supertall Vincom Landmark 81 in Ho Chi Minh City, scooped “best residential high-rise development Vietnam” by Asia Pacific Property Awards 2016, part of the world renowned International Property Awards. Representatives from the development company Vingroup and Atkins attended the awards ceremony held earlier this month in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
At an expected height of 460m, the Vincom Landmark 81 will be the tallest building in Vietnam, adding a new iconic beacon to Ho Chi Minh City’s ever growing skyline. Construction started in 2015 with completion set for 2017.
Mr Le Hai Quang from Vingroup, said: “Vincom Landmark 81 is an exciting and exceptional project in our portfolio. Partnering with Atkins, we are realising our vision to create outstanding city landmarks for a modern and integrated Vietnam.”
Mr Mai Quang Tri, Atkins’ country representative in Vietnam, added: “The International Property Awards celebrate the highest levels of achievement by companies operating in all sectors of the property and real estate industry.
This regional award is a great recognition of our achievement in architectural design and highlights the collaborative approach we’ve taken to meet our client’s vision. We look forward to developing our relationship with Vingroup to create further iconic landmarks and setting international standards.”
The 81-storey development is situated in the prime location of Vinhomes Central Park and faces Saigon River. It features an unusual architectural design that symbolises the diversity and fast-emergence of Ho Chi Minh City, comprising areas for residential, retail and a hotel. The 241,000m2 development will also feature a contemporary landscape design that merges natural beauty into the building.
The Vincom Landmark 81 has been nominated to represent Asia Pacific to compete with winning developments from other regions at the International Property Awards to be held in London later this year.
