the three tallest towers are approximately 110m high offering extensive view out from its balconies. the curvilinear facade derives its influence from the rolling hillsides of rice plantations found in rural vietnam. as implied by its name, this inner city gated community with its 17,500m2 garden area offers a tranquil sanctuary away from the surrounding hustle and bustle of the city’s business center. ‘city gardens’ is set to be completed in this year.
