Ho Chi Minh City, August 2019 - Friendship Tower, a Grade A building in District 1, HCMC offically ‘topped out’ on August 8th 2019; handover is expected in Q1/2020.

According to Mr. Nguyen Trong Mai Lam, General Director of CZ Slovakia Vietnam: “Our hard work and effort are realised with construction progress on track for handover in Q1/2020, offering tenants a flexible and modern working environment in a prestigious District 1 location. The on-time topping out is another milestone to underline our commitment to delivering a high-quality office building.

Located at Le Duan Boulevard, one of HCMC’s most famous and prestigious streets with construction by Coteccons, Friendship Tower has been structurally complete for nine months, meeting all safety and quality requirements. Handover will occur in the next six months.

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 minimal amount of stock is Friendship Tower. The Grade A office building is expected to be ready for handover 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 leased across levels.

Ms. Tu Thi Hong An, Associate Director - Head of Commercial Leasing, Savills Vietnam said: “Unlike some recent 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 delighted with Friendship Tower’s progress.”
