REIC - Vietcombank Tower project is in the stage of completion. These days you go through Me Linh Square you will see the workers are installing six granite piers in front of the building. According to the plan, the building will be opened in March 2015.
Vietcombank Tower uses three main materials: steel, glass and granite.
The main antrance is six granite piers.
The facade is under construction and going to complete soon.
The back of the building has a sub entrance.
Vietcombank Tower expands the bank’s presence in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam’s financial capital and its fastest-growing city. The 35-story tower will be the tallest building on Me Linh Square, a prime location on the west bank of the Saigon River. As Vietcombank’s Ho Chi Minh City headquarters, the building will include the bank’s flagship retail location and executive offices. Additional Class A office space is designed to attract international tenants.
Evoking classic skyscrapers, the building’s design is distinguished by multiple setbacks, a celebratory crown, and a prominent spire. Materials were chosen to convey the stability and permanence appropriate to an esteemed financial institution. The exterior wall will incorporate light-colored granite within vertical metal ribs that accentuate the height of the building, and integrated custom lighting fixtures will illuminate the entire tower at night. At the base of the tower, a loggia of six granite piers and a canopy mark the main entrance.
Inside, a frosted glass-and-wood screen divides the ground floor, creating separate lobbies for the bank and the offices. The lobbies will include marble walls and slatted wood ceilings. To differentiate the spaces, the bank lobby will have one green marble wall and the office lobby will have walls of red marble. Both spaces have travertine floors and slatted ceilings of light-colored wood. The public spaces of the bank branch continue the materials palette of the lobbies with red marble walls and wood counters topped with black granite.
Adjacent to the building, a park with walking paths, a fountain, and seating will be open to the public.
