The upcoming Cocobay Towers in Da Nang, Vietnam, will rise to a height of approximately 200 m. It has a total gross floor area of 145,000 sq m and each tower will accommodate both a luxury hotel and a condominium.

The towers are connected by two 52-m long lightly curved crystal sky bridges, which form a loop and provide a viewing gallery on the 48th floor. Beneath these towers, there is a podium that will comprise ballrooms, hotel function rooms, retail, cinemas and a wax works museum.

At approximately 200 m, the Cocobay Towers Crystal Sky Bridge is said to be the tallest crystal sky bridge in Vietnam and thought to be the world’s tallest glass-floored bridge connecting two buildings.

Atkins has been appointed by Empire Group to provide architecture and interior design services for the project. “Our design is inspired by the auspicious ‘double fish’ symbol, which represents prosperity and wealth in Vietnamese culture. The shape of the towers and its facade maximise the spectacular views of the beautiful coastal city of Da Nang for its guests and residents to enjoy from every perspective,” explained Ian Milne, Atkins’ senior design director.

According to Atkins, the project has now entered the scheme design phase with a fast track to construction that is set to start around the middle of the year.
