Situated along the 40-metre wide Ca Cam River, Riviera Point is a 15-minute drive to District 1 and is well-connected to other districts via Phu My Bridge. Residents can look forward to family-friendly facilities including the sky garden, leisure pool, children's playground, barbeque pits, fitness corner as well as a gym and tennis court. Residents can also enjoy the amenities at the Phu My Hung Township, which is just five minutes away.
Families with school going children will also appreciate the development's proximity to many international schools including the British Vietnamese International School as well as the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Medical facilities are also within reach at the Franco-Vietnam Hospital.

The topping out signifies the placing of the last beam at the top of the tower, which also refers to the overall completion of the building's structure. With the latest milestone, construction for Phase 1A of Riviera Point is progressing well on track for completion in 2015.
