Tower 1, which has a total net lettable area of 10,199sq.m, has received strong leasing interest from companies in the information technology, business process outsourcing, and finance back office sectors.

Targeting companies from these sectors, Tower 1 offers space solutions for companies seeking expansion, relocation or consolidation; companies looking for big floor plates to improve productivity and working environment; as well as companies supporting tenants in Saigon Hi-Tech Park.

The handover of Tower 1 is scheduled to take place in November 2018, with operations expected to commence in the first quarter of 2019.

Tan Yew Chin, Ascendas-Singbridge CEO for Singapore and Southeast Asia, said, “The topping out ceremony of Tower 1 marks an important milestone for OneHub Saigon. We are encouraged by the strong interest garnered to date. We are confident in the progress of OneHub Saigon, and are committed to delivering quality, collaborative space to drive the growth of enterprises in Vietnam.”

Vo Sy Nhan, chairman of Ascendas Saigon Bund Company Limited, added, “We have seen a decentralisation trend in the local office market, where companies relocate some parts of their operations to outside the CBD for cost savings purposes. For OneHub Saigon, the leasing progress remains strong. We expect to announce some pre-commitments in the near future.”
