VNREDefining the skyline of Ho Chi Minh City, Bitexco Financial Tower stands at 68 stories tall, right at the heart of the city’s Central Business District. With its inspirational design and world-class presence, it is a true icon built to symbolize a nation’s aspirations and the limitless potential of a thriving cosmopolitan city.


Design & Inspiration


Inspired by Vietnam’s national flower – the lotus, Bitexco Financial Tower is designed to represent the energy and aspirations of its people. A true urban masterpiece that is more than a structure of glass and steel, it evokes beauty and progress as it rises above the culturally rich Ho Chi Minh City.

Carlos Zapata

An award-winning architect whose past achievements include a 22-storey Cooper Square Hotel in the heart of New York City as well as Chicago’s Soldier Field Stadium. Mr. Zapata is also the Design Architect for the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Hanoi, another Bitexco project.

Location


Located in the Central Business District of one of the world’s fastest growing economies, Bitexco Financial Tower stands at the heart of Ho Chi Minh’s Financial Centre. Situated at Nguyen Hue, it is strategically positioned to attract leading financial, banking, insurance and legal companies, both local and global.

With its central location and accessibility from the rest of the city, it is well connected to the Saigon Bridge, Thu Thien Tunnel, Tan Thuan Bridge, and in close proximity to the Tan Son Nhat International Airport.

Consultant team

To realise this vision, Bitexco has assigned Korean firm, Hyundai E&C, who is currently constructing the world’s second tallest building, Incheon 151 Tower in Korea, to be its main contractor. Their experience in constructing skyscrapers is unparalleled, and has maintained the highest standard in construction techniques.

The complex shape of Bitexco Financial Tower required the experience of a world-renowned structural engineering firm, LERA, who is responsible for designing the foundations of the Shanghai World Financial Tower. This has instilled confidence in the construction of Bitexco Financial Tower, and brought to life an icon of sheer inspiration and innovation.

The Tower boasts an advanced Otis double-decker lift system with the state-of-the-art Compass Destination System from the USA, currently used in only the world’s highest profile buildings. Eagon from South Korea is responsible for the challenging and stunning ‘curtain wall of glass’ that elegantly drapes the Tower.

To ensure the timely completion of the project, it was crucial to create synergy between the complexity of many cultures, languages and various areas of expertise. An experienced project manager with an established history of undertaking projects of this magnitude was paramount. It was a clear choice for Bitexco to appoint American firm, Turner International, who successfully managed the construction of Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building.

Developer: Bitexco Group

From a small textile enterprise in Thai Binh Province in 1985, to a multi-industrial corporation 25 years later, Bitexco has achieved much success in real estate investment and development, hydro-power plant construction investment, infrastructure and road construction, financial investment, mining investment and mineral water manufacturing, amongst other businesses.

Marriott Hanoi Hotel. Other current large-scale developments underway include Nguyen Cu Trinh quadrangle complex, Ben Thanh Complex and the Hoang Mai Urban Complex.

In the relentless pursuit of growth and prosperity, Bitexco has built its fame with Vietnam’s sustainable development and global integration.
