Today meeting's first purpose is for extension of "break ground deadline"
Because accordding to the "agreement paper" seoullite tower have to beging construction until tommorrrow 7/april/2012.

Today meeting is just for delay of deadline.
They are going to negociated for height(floors) problem until 31/may.

Worst case i'm little bit worry about "moratorium" announced by company.

The plan which 103floor is now under consideration by the Seoul goverment.
Officialy 133 floor is seoul's suggestion but the otherside some mediation between seoul with seoullite tower Inc.

I'm not 100 percent sure, but i think it is 103~110 floors?
But anycase necessary that render should be changed.

we still have 1 1/2 months for the government to persuade the developers to go with the original 640m plan x) although it doesn't look too good for it, but anyway everything taller than 500m is already amazingly tall and would be epic to be seen going up.

100% agree. Seoul's New monkey is really hate "skyscraper"

But this seoullite is not easy lunch. Because Seoullite tower's first goal is for landmark tower or symbol of seoul city. He tried not to do it on some pretext or others. Justification is only economy but not enough...

However Really problem is "YONGSAN IBD"&"HYUNDAI GBC" We have to keep on eye on it Moneky's action..Really skeptical

Either, your statement is too poetic for your readers or slipping a lot. I am not sure what you are saying. Sorry.

Daily news
At 30/april Seoullite tower's "public hearing" held in seoul council
-Seoullite Inc suggested for decresed height from 133 to 70(1building)/50(1)/42(2)
-Seoul goverment "No". Seoullite have to built as original plan which is 133.
-Negociation will be finished until 30/May/2012.

Guess some compromise such like a 100floors or project canceled..But i'm not sure.

Seoul nixes project to build landmark building
Song Sang-ho, Asia News Network/The Korea Herald, Seoul | Fri, 06/01/2012 8:50 PM

The high-profile project to build a 133-story landmark building in the Digital Media Center in Seoul was nixed due to the main constructor’s failure to pay for its purchase of the land plot, Seoul City said Friday.

The metropolitan government began the project in April 2009 when it signed a land purchase deal with the firm Seoul Light Tower.

The city said that the firm delayed paying for the land and failed to carry out its responsibility stipulated in the deal.

Seoul officials said that they made the decision as the firm has no will to push for the project, and the plan to develop the district could face delays.

The firm was picked as the preferred contractor to build the building with a height of 640 meters ― the world’s second highest. The building was to include a shopping mall, hotel and other facilities. (nvn)
