Ben Thanh Towers

24 Aug
VNREBen Thanh Towers is located at the historical Ben Thanh Market plaza, where four streets meet, namely Le Thi Hong Gam, Calmette, Pham Ngu Lao, and Pho Duc Chinh. Ben Thanh Towers is also sit on top of future city Metro Center.



– Land area: +/- 8,600 square meters

– Level: 55 levels (240 meters)

– Gross construction area: +/- 180,000 square meters

– Scheduled construction period: 2011 – 2015

The project includes two towers which are connected by a podium. The 55-storey West Tower contains office floors in the lower half and a hotel in the upper half. The 48-storey East Tower contains the residential apartments, serviced by the hotel through the podium and basement.



The architectural design has a cultural context as it refers to the Vietnamese myth of the Two Dragons. The podium represents the coiled tails, while the two dragons rise from the land. The cantilevered tops represent the dragon’s heads. The glass cubes are figurative depictions of Vietnamese pearls in the mouths of the dragons.

The image will provide a powerful reminder to current and future generations of both the Vietnamese myth and the symbolic representation of the city’s fame as the ‘Pearl of the Orient’. When completed, Ben Thanh Towers, with its iconic design and strategic location, will represent the new and dynamic Vietnam and will be a new city landmark.

    Why destroy all historic places of Saigon ?
    In Hanoi, they take care about historical and heritage places. But in Ho Chi Minh City, they don't care … and the city is more and more ugly …

    It's good for envelopment to build towers, but district 4 or district 7 should be better.

    Can you imagine the same in Europe ? Destroy the historical places of Paris for make Towers ? Of course not !!! In Paris they make building outside in “La Défence” a new business district. They will not build Towers in center, because the tourist come for see the historic places

    Why visit HCMC in future if it's look like every cities ? Nothing special ?
