Invisible tower/end: 2014?

The world's first invisibility tower to be built in Korea. PHOTO
The project, which conceived the South Korean architects, can rightfully claim to be the eighth wonder of the world. We are talking about the world's first tower-Invisible - Tower Infinity.

To be precise, the tower is not completely invisible, and in part. It will be a giant translucent crystal. Half make it invisible by special finishing materials and optical technologies.

Tower Project was developed by the architectural company GDS Architects. The building will be built by 2014. Height of Tower Infinity will be 450 m, the total area allotted for construction - 145.5 thousand square meters.
At an altitude of approximately 400 m on the tower will be equipped with an observation deck. At the base of the building will be open commercial, cultural, recreational and sports facilities - shopping pavilions, cafes, waterpark, etc.

Unlike many of its buildings Tower Infinity will not be positioned as the highest or the most expensive tower in the world. It will be a symbol of South Korea, its place in the world today, pointing to the growing strength of the "Asian tigers", which does not advertise its presence.
By the way, a place for Tower Infinity (a city of Incheon Seoul) chosen by chance. Incheon is often called the gateway to the Korean capital, it is a major transportation hub of South Korea, as the city is the largest on the west coast port, and the country's largest airport.

You seem to have some English issues, Spider. I hope this project gets finished.

The invisible tower is not so invisible after all.

invisibility = aviation liability. Besides, it's not actually invisible...
