• Landmark 81 Halfway to Becoming Asean’s Tallest Tower

    30 November 2017

    The construction of the Atkins-designed Landmark 81 Tower in Ho Chi Minh City has reached a new milestone by passing 260m in height.

    It is now the tallest building in the city and will continue to grow for a further 200m until it tops out at 461m, surpassing the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and becoming the tallest building in Southeast Asia.

    “As an architect it is very satisfying to see our ideas materialise from our imaginations and the digital realm into actual concrete and glass. It is an even greater privilege when it is a building of such architectural magnitude,” says Ian Milne, Senior Design Director of Atkins Southeast Asia.

    The tower will dominate the cityscape and helps represent Ho Chi Minh as a city of regional importance.

    Landmark 81 is one of several towers being built in Vietnam that proclaim the country’s growing global status.
