Perhaps the law only applies to new (i.e. post ~2010ish) developments. I don't know why KT wouldn't just move somewhere else. I know that Jongno is a major business center in Seoul, but so are Gangnam and Yeouido. Why not just build it in one of those places instead? They trying to avoid having to go through bureaucracy for some other location?

Good question. But as you know....If KT move to other location, then they have to buying land...Which means KT spent huge money for new office...

But that Jongno site is own by KT So it is more easy "redevelop" than move to other location...

LOL compared to whoever wins the NYC mayoral race, Park Won-soon is basically pro-development.

Jongno Tower is 130 Meters and SK Tower is 160 Meters. Height limit is not 90 Meters. But as far as I was told, buildings in Jongno can't exceed 180 meters (more or less).
The main reason behind this height limits in Jongno area is Namsan Tower.

That is my exact emotion from this situation. Not only me but also Many seoul citizens wait 8 years for this project's completion.
Also collected building's design from all around world(Holland,japan,france,UK,USA etc)...And NEWS came from CNN which is Seoul is going to built huge dream city....
But at last ruin......KOREA is no more my country...They don't know about shame...If Only 1 billions or some admistration help then this project would resume...But they didn't....They give up capital of SK.

By the way I feel warm from your comment. I'm envy BAKU's creative skyline and construction.

Nevermind the economic or political feasibility of this project.

Inno, doesn't it bother you that they didn't use any Korean designs in this project? The only thing vaguely Korean about it was the way Liebeskind's original design was supposed to mimic the Silla crown.

Wouldn't it make you prouder, as a Korean, to see something which genuinely reflected the design aesthetic of your country? The total lack of harmony between these towers, the fact that the master plan didn't consider traditional Korean geomancy...from what I know of Korean art (Joseon, Baekje, and Silla), simplicity and a sense of timelessness and harmony with nature were important to native Korean design. Think of 창덕궁; UNESCO gave it the World Heritage status because is an "outstanding example of Far Eastern palace architecture and garden design, being exceptional because the buildings are integrated into and harmonized with the natural setting, adapted to the topography and retaining indigenous tree cover. I don't see how this newest proposal did any of that.

Even if they wanted purely modern design, Korea has a lot of very promising and innovative architecture firms. Why weren't any of them consulted?

Cancellation of this project is probably one of the best things that can happen in Seoul for now.

It's not a good project and I'm not sure if there is such a huge demand for an office space at once. It's better for Seoul to keep boosting and redevelop equally.

http://news.donga.com/3/all/20131107/58730620/1

Next years(2014) budget of seoul cut SOC and increased welfare up to 32%
Total budget is 22 billions(among them 7billion is for welfare)
But cut SOC budget(such like road construction,park,residence etc)

for example due to cut budget some major project's completion delayed
GYUMJAE bride's completion delayed from 2014 to 2016
Worldcup bridge's completion delayed from 2014 to 2018
Gangnam circle highway's completion delayed from 2014 to 2016

Seoul become OLDER,SLUMISM

I cannot find pics..but below one.KAL company design as HAN OCK style(korean traditional house design for HARMONIZED with OLD PALACE
Seoul mayor reject hotel due to site closed with "woman's high school" and closed with "OLD PALACE". Unrational reason.
They confused seoul with PARIS or santurary shrine.
