Sabeco World Trade Center is the unofficial name of a skyscraper proposed to be constructed in 2010 at 2-4-6 Hai Ba Trung, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. This tower, which was not developed, was expected to have 40 floors, feature a traditional Vietnamese house, and be one of the highest buildings in Vietnam. The architect of the tower was Architect HOK International. As of 2010, the highest building in Vietnam is Bitexco Financial Tower in Ho Chi Minh City. Saigon Plaza will include offices, entertainment, shopping malls, hotel and a convention hall.[2] The name “World Trade Center” is a trademark owned by World Trade Centers Association (WTCA), and is used under license by WTCA’s global network of members in nearly 100 countries. The former Sabeco project was not licensed or authorized by WTCA.

Office and retail supermarket in Vietnam[edit]

During 2000-2007, Vietnam achieved an economic growth of 8-8.5%, leading to the increasing demand of office and shopping spaces in big cities like Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Danang, Haiphong. Land and housing prices in these cities are unproportionate to the GDP per capita in the country.
