The Hanoi-based Keangnam Landmark 72 tower, which has 72 stories, will soon lose its ‘tallest building’ title to the Vincom Landmark 81 once the latter is completed.

British firm Atkins is the project’s lead architect, responsible for architecture and landscape design, whereas Arup, another British company, is in charge of structural design.

The Vincom Landmark 81 is one of many global projects on which the two British design companies are collaborating, Atkins said in a press release on Monday.

With an expected height of 460m, the building will be the tallest in the country and become a new icon on Ho Chi Minh City’s ever-growing skyline, according to Atkins.

Representatives from Atkins and Arup were among a group of businesses accompanying UK Prime Minister David Cameron during his visit to Vietnam last week. []
