Ben Thanh twin towers

The Ben Thanh twin towers will be located opposite the bus station in district 1

Demolition has already started, I will be updating this project regularly.

Below is the current situation of the buildings that will be demolished.

Pham Ngu Lao.

This whole block is going to be demolished to make way for the project. I walked around the entire block to record it before they go. A few have gone already, some have been gutted but still standing and the rest are still occupied.

This is only a small selection of the images taken. View the rest on my Flickr.
