Looks like it's going up quickly; good to see.

I was wondering, looking at Daum maps, it looks like there's something in the works right behind the trade tower, sort of diagonal across from the Parnas hotel. Am I correct, or just seeing things?

Don't trust Daum maps. Their Seoul maps are circa 2012 / early 2013. The only reliable recent satellite maps are from Google.

I just took a peek at Daum maps, it looks like across from it (on the other side of the WTC Building) is the work they did when they refurbished the COEX mall il 2013 and 2014. I'm not 100% sure though.

It's definitely more accurate than google maps, though; if you look around Jongno or Yeouido on google maps, it's at least a few years out of date. I guess I'm not sure if that applies to Gangnam, but it would be strange if it didn't.

Well, that's very doubtful. Maybe I didn't get the correct Daum/Naver maps, but my browser and my apps show the same Daum / Naver satellite pictures, so it's probably the most up-to-date image available.

For example, even in Jongro, the Daum satellite show an empty lot where the Four Seasons hotel is (Google shows the almost completed structure). And on Daum, the Sungnyemun gate is still being restored (it opened in May 2013 I believe). On Google it's completed. Same thing in Yongsan, where the new buildings UC in front of Yongsan Stadium haven't started construction on both Daum and Naver, only on Google Maps. You can actually use Google Earth to see when the satellite pictures were taken (Google Maps is not always 100% synced with Google Earth, but in this case these are the same images), and they date back from March and April 2015 (for Seoul).

On the other hand, for Street View (called "Road View" on Daum), most Korean images are way more recent, and date from late 2014, while Google pictures can often be 5 years old

Just noticing now how tall these floors are--4.8m each. Quite surprising

Inno, is this going to be GS' new headquarters? It's a pretty prestigious place, so it'd be desirable as an HQ address.

RIGHT THAT IS prestigious place for HQ.
But as u know many GS's affiliate(especially GS construction) move to GRAN SEOUL tower in CBD(recently completed)

But as u say that is possibility I admit it. Let's keep an eyes on it.

Wow, sounds like GS have a whole lot of nice towers. Are they still occupying the tower at Yeoksam Station too, kitty corner from Star Tower?

Photos I took today of the Parnas Tower (or whatever it's called now since it's been bought...).

The tower itself is really beautiful, and in the entire complex will look great! Besides the skyline of the COEX will be improved by it, and that's great! Way to go, Seoul, improve your skyline!!

Does that cladding look as high-quality in person as it does in photos? Because it looks fantastic, and also quite expensive in a good, non-flashy kind of way.
