[Photos] Future Hanoi: Vietinbank Tower

Though its construction has slowed recently, Hanoi is expecting a pair of fancy new V-shaped skyscrapers in future.

The tallest of the Vietinbank Towers, to be located in Tay Ho District, will house the bank's main office over 68 stories, while the shorter, 48-story tower, will be home to a five-star hotel as well as luxury residences, a spa and a wellness area, reports Designs.vn.

Progress on the buildings, however, is slow. Designed by Foster & Partners, work on the Vietinbank Towers has been underway since 2010. According to the structure's forum on Skyscraper City, construction of the towers has currently risen to the ninth floor and seems to be moving at a snail's pace.

Once complete, however, the mixed-use complex will feature energy-conscious building techniques, aiming to conserve energy use by as much as 35%, employing low-power dehumidifiers within each tower. Greenery will also be planted both around the two towers and on the roof of the seven-story connecting section of the structure.

According to Designs.vn, VND8 trillion (US$356.9 million) has been invested into the towers thus far. If all goes to plan, the bank will certainly have left its mark on the Hanoi skyline: each of the triangular-shaped towers will feature a seven-story letter 'V' at the top, just to ensure that you know whose tower it is.
