Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City, an award-winning, pioneering, premium International Grade A+ office-tower, is strategically located on the corner of Le Duan Boulevard and Le Van Huu Street in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City.

The 25-storey building consists of approximately 40,000 square meters GFA of prime office real estate including retail areas, a multifunctional exhibition, event- and conference area and restaurant areas with an outdoor terrace.

The building is a symbol of the strategic partnership and friendship between Vietnam and Germany and will be home to the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, making it the destination and gateway for German companies doing business in Vietnam and ASEAN and promoting German and Vietnamese relations.

Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City has already won numerous accolades and has just recently become the winner of the “South East Asia Property Awards” for the “Best Green Development” of South East Asia in 2016. It is also the first building in Vietnam and one of the few in South East Asia awarded with two energy efficiency certificates: LEED Platinum and DGNB Gold. The Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy of Germany granted the project the “EnEff” distinction applying state-of-the-art sustainable energy-efficient building solutions and technologies “Made in Germany.”

Modern German technology coupled with a high degree of sustainability will provide innovative commercial office space of exceptional quality. The energy-efficient dual-skin façade is unique to the region and will create a milestone for future building developments.

On November 1, 2016, Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City celebrated its official topping out ceremony, which was witnessed by the former Federal Minister of Foreign Affairs and new President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who highlighted, “Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City is the best and most obvious example of reliable relations between Germany and Vietnam” and evaluated the project “as evidence that Germany wants to accompany the opening and modernization of Vietnam in the long term.”

The countdown to the opening of Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City has begun, which is due to be completed by the end of August 2017 and the entire team of Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City is working at full speed on the final stages of the development of the building.

The construction of the building is progressing on schedule, so that in September 2017 the soft opening will be held and the first tenants will move in on September 1, 2017. By the end of 2017 the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany will also relocate to Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City.

The grand opening ceremony of the building is anticipated to be in the first quarter of 2018, since the elections to the 19th German Bundestag are taking place on September 24, 2017 and the new Bundestag will not be constituted until the end of October 2017. As follows a trip from the President, the Chancellor or the Federal Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany to Vietnam is therefore only possible in the first quarter of 2018.

Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City is expecting to have the presence of these high ranked German dignities and their representative counterparts from the Vietnamese government at the grand opening. Until then Deutsches Haus Ho Chi Minh City wishes to present itself in its utmost perfection as the No.1 business address in Vietnam and ASEAN by setting a new benchmark and standard in Vietnam in terms of “wellness” for tenants and their employees, and by creating value for the most modern workspaces.
