Ho Chi Minh City, August 2019 – Friendship Tower, the Grade A office building in District 1, HCMC has just completed its roof and proudly announces to the public the topping out on August 8th 2019 and expecting the handover to its first tenants in Q1.2020.
Mr. Nguyen Trong Mai Lam, General Director of CZ Slovakia Vietnam commented, “Our hard work and effort are coming to life with the construction progress on track for the handover to tenants in Q1.2020 to offer a flexible, modern and exceptional working environment in the prestigious location of Ho Chi Minh City. The on time topping out is another milestone to underline our commitment to deliver top quality office building.”
According to a recent report from Savills Vietnam, high-end office space in Ho Chi Minh City is currently 98% occupied, with the slim margin of available space expected to only further decrease in upcoming months. Providing the ideal solution to the extremely limited amount of stock is Friendship Tower. The Grade A office building is expected to be ready for handover to the tenants in Q1/2020 and will offer 13,700 sqm of leasable office space. The building has already attracted the attention of numerous local and international tenants, such as The Executive Centre – the world-class flexible workspace provider with 1,442 sq m of space spanning two floors.
Ms. Tu Thi Hong An, Associate Director – Head of Commercial Leasing, Savills Vietnam said: “Unlike some recent real estate projects in Ho Chi Minh City, that have not been able to commit to their initial delivery time, Friendship Tower is making great strides towards completion. Savills and the building’s future tenants are all very satisfied with Friendship Tower’s progress.”
With the achievement of The Best Office Architecture Vietnam for 2019 by the Asia Pacific Property Awards Architecture and projected LEED Gold Certificate (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), Friendship Tower is the perfect destination for dynamic local & international companies.
