Landmark 81 is a super-tall skyscraper in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, that was designed by the British design, engineering and consulting firm Atkins.[1] The investor and primary developer for the project is Vingroup, a Vietnamese corporation that is also the country's largest real-estate company. Landmark 81 is the tallest building in Vietnam, the tallest completed building in Southeast Asia as of July, 2018 and the 14th tallest building in the world.[2]

The 461.2 metres (1,513 ft) tall, 81-storey building is built on the western banks of the Saigon River in the city's Binh Thanh District, located just north of Ho Chi Minh City's historic center and to the immediate south of Saigon Bridge. The tower is at the heart of the $1.5 billion high-end mixed-use urban area called Vinhomes Central Park, and was scheduled to be inaugurated in July 2018. The development comprises hotel and conference facilities, luxury apartments, high-end retail spaces, restaurants, bars, and a multi-story observation deck at the tower's crown.

The ground-breaking ceremony for the tower was held on December 13, 2014. In October 2017, construction finished on 69 floors of its 81 floors, and with a height of 270 metres (890 ft), it surpassed the Bitexco Financial Tower to become the tallest building in Ho Chi Minh City. As of January 2018, construction has finished on all floors, with only the spire and crown remaining to be built. On April 10, 2018, the last segment of the crown spire was added, architecturally completing Landmark 81. [4] The building's base was opened officially on July 27 2018 to mark the 25th anniversary of its owner, Vingroup.[5]
