Description on this project

Upon completion in 2012, it was the tallest building in Vietnam and was a redefining moment for the city of Hanoi, which at the time had very few tall buildings. The 72 story building is comprised of offices and is the tallest in a three-building complex featuring two 49 story residential towers with curved facades to maximize views. In order to construct the complex in the soft soils of Hanoi, 980 piles with diameters of up to two across are drilled deep underground in a process which took longer than one full year during the construction phase. The reinforced concrete frame of the 72 story tower utilizes post-tensioning which allowed the structure to rise as quickly as one floor every five days, a rate which is faster than what would have occurred with conventional construction techniques.
