"There will be spaces between windows and external parts for balconies, flowers and plants. The design maximizes the use of natural power of wind, sunlight and rain to make Eximbank Tower eco-friendly and reduce power consumption.

The tower is described as an “overhead flower park”, a symbol of green buildings and a signal for the start of a new architectural trend in Vietnam," according to the designer quoted by The Saigon Times.

With a total project cost of $170 million, the building’s main investor is the Import-Export Bank of Vietnam with Turner Construction as the management consultant.
