Sol E&C to build ‘tallest skyscraper’ in Ba Ria–Vung Tau province, Vietnam

Vietnamese company Sol E&C has been commissioned as the design & build general contractor for Five Star Odyssey, a luxury five-star hotel and tourist apartment project in Ba Ria–Vung Tau province, Vietnam. The tower features a gross building area of 200,000 sq m, comprising 50 storeys, four basement levels, 436 hotel rooms, 1,019 high-end apartment units, 12 penthouses, and a conference centre with a capacity of over 1,000 guests.

Upon completion, this new landmark will become the tallest skyscraper in Ba Ria–Vung Tau province, said Sol E&C. Developed by Five Star International Group, Five Star Odyssey is located on the frontage of Thuy Van Street, a bustling and central area of Back Beach.

The contractor further revealed that the project will present complex construction challenges due to its proximity to the sea with significant height (50 storeys), and deep basement levels (four levels). At the groundbreaking ceremony, Nguyen Ba Duong, founding chairman of Sol E&C and Newtecons, pledged to collaborate closely with the client and partners to ensure the project’s objectives are met.

Mr Nguyen also committed to completing the project with the highest quality and the fastest construction progress, while addressing environmental concerns, ensuring labour safety, and providing the most suitable and effective construction solutions for the client.

In addition, the project to upgrade Thuy Van Street with a total investment of over 1.216 trillion VND is scheduled to commence at the end of July 2024 and be completed by May 2025. This infrastructure investment will complement Five Star Odyssey, making it an attractive destination for domestic and international tourists when fully operational.
