Keangnam Hanoi Landmark Tower (or Keangnam Landmark 72) is a supertall skyscraper in Pham Hung Boulevard, Từ Liêm District, Hanoi, Vietnam. The area is reserved for major companies to set up their headquarters there such as KPMG, Standard Chartered Bank, PWC, LG Electronics and so on. The complex consists of one 72-story office tower with the height of 350 m and two 48-storey residence towers. Landmark 72 is located on an area of 46,054 m2 and the total floor area is 609,673 m2, ranked 5th as the largest floor area of a single building in the world. The investor as well as the executor and operator of this complex is the South Korea-based company named Keangnam Enterprises, Ltd. The investment capital for this complex is estimated $1.05 billion USD.[1]

The complex features a 5-star InterContinental hotel, offices, entertainment areas, retail spaces, clinics and convention centers.[citation needed] The complex opened for business on May 18, 2012. Landmark 72 is the world’s 35th-highest building and the highest in Indochina Peninsula. The second-highest skyscraper in Vietnam is the 68-storey Bitexco Financial Tower in Ho Chi Minh City.

On June 11, 2008, an agreement was signed between the building owner and the InterContinental Hotels Group to operate the 359-room hotel under InterContinental Hanoi Landmark 72 with 9 Hotel Floors from 62nd Floor to 70th Floor (Hotel Club Lounge located on the 71st Floor).

On November 2010, the main tower reached approximately 300 meters, making it the tallest structure in Vietnam. On January 24, 2011, the main tower topped out at 350 meters; it became the tallest building in Vietnam while the other two towers had topped out months ago with the height of 212 meters.

Landmark 72 is the site of Vietnam’s highest stair climbing race, the Vietnam Landmark 72 Hanoi Vertical Run. On 30 September 2012, runners competed for the first time to be the fastest to ascend the tower's 1,914 steps.
