HO CHI MINH CITY | Bitexco Financial Tower | 262 m / 860 ft | 68 floors

This thing is under-construction in Vietnam and will be completed October of this year.

Architects: Carlos Zapata Studio & AREP

Looks like it has a helicoptor landing pad.

Looks like a lampost in that first rendering. Good to see more more tall buildings going into Saigon

Very nice looking building, though I think it would be better without that crazy helipad. I wonder if there's some sort of ordinance that requires helicopter access.

Ho Chi Minh has it going. I hope this tower and other subsequent develpoments will bring more recogition for Vietnam. Vietnam seems very underated.

Thanks for for upate.
