Vietnam’s tallest tower wins award in London

A residential tower designed by Atkins, set to be Vietnam’s tallest building when finished, has won an international property award.

The 460m Landmark 81 in Ho Chi Minh City has won "World’s Best Architecture" at the International Property Awards 2017 held in London.

It also picked up "Best International Residential High-rise Architecture" and "Best Residential High-rise Architecture Asia Pacific". SNC-Lavalin acquired WS Atkins plc in July this year.

Ian Milne, Atkins’ design director for the Landmark 81, said: "As Asia’s urbanisation rapidly continues and the urban population emerges, Landmark 81 is a great example to demonstrate the potential for high-rise living. Creating high-quality and convenient vertical living space on limited footprint can be the sustainable and attractive solutions for the region."

Landmark 81, within the Vinhomes Central Park urban area, will be the tallest building in Vietnam when complete in 2019.

The Atkins-designed Dubai Opera also won "Best Public Service Architecture, Arabia".
