Future Saigon: Binh Thanh May Get Another Massive Skyscaper With Sky Tower

Feast your eyes upon this massive skyscraper, dubbed Tan Tao Sky Tower (or not...more on that later), that may soon go up near the intersection of Nguyen Huu Canh and Dien Bien Phu Streets in Binh Thanh District.

The 300-meter-tall Morris Architects-designed skyscraper would be one of the tallest in Saigon (the Bitexco Financial Tower stands at 262 meters) and just around the corner from the 461.5-meter Landmark 81, the crown jewel of Vinhome’s Central Park project.

Once completed, the tower will sport a total floor area of ​​approximately 225,000 square meters that will house a mid-level sky lobby, a convention hall, a broadcast center, a 500-room five-star hotel, 660 residential units and retail and office space, reports REIC.

In a sign that the project has possibly stalled, the building’s namesake, Tan Tao Investment Industrial JSC (ITA), recently sold its slice of the pie for US$18.5 million.

Time will tell if this project ever gets off the ground, but even if it doesn’t we can expect to see plenty others spring up in the Nguyen Huu Canh-Dien Bien Phu corridor in coming years due to its close proximity to District 1 and the addition of Saigon’s first metro line.
