Landmark 81 is a supertall skyscraper in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.[1] The investor and primary developer for the project is Vinhomes, a Vietnamese corporation that is also the country's largest real-estate company. Landmark 81 is the tallest building in Vietnam, the second tallest building in Southeast Asia, and the 18 th tallest building in the world.[2][3]

The 461.2-metre (1,513 ft) tall, 81-story 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. The development comprises hotel and conference facilities, luxury apartments, high-end retail spaces including Armani Exchange and Rolex, restaurants, bars, and a multi-story observation deck.

The ground-breaking ceremony for the tower was held on 13 December 2014. In October 2017, construction reached floor 69, 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. By January 2018, construction had finished on all floors, with only the spire and crown remaining to be built. On 10 April 2018, the last segment of the crown spire was added, architecturally completing Landmark 81.[4] The building's base, which takes up 6 floors with a total space of 50,000 m2 (540,000 sq ft), was opened officially on 27 July 2018 to mark the 25th anniversary of its owner's parent company, Vingroup.[5] The observation deck, named Skyview, opened on 28 April 2019. The deck, spanning from floor 79 at 369.65 m (1,212.8 ft) to floor 81 at 382.65 m (1,255.4 ft), is currently Vietnam's highest observation deck. Ticket ranges from 405,000 VND (17.4 USD) for children to 810,000 VND (US$34.8) for adults.[6][7]
