I took a bunch of pictures today. I must say it looks much better than I expected, especially from up close. The front is just okay, but on the side of the building, the dark black pain and use of cladding really makes these buildings look actually fairly good in my opinion.

yes, it looks a bit better than expected, although its not a masterpiece.
i also like the small balconies, which seems to be quite rare in korea.

Have to say, the paint on these towers makes an enormous difference.

I don't know if it's a matter of particular apartment brands being a bit more upscale than others, but I sometimes get the feeling that Korean commieblocks are close to turning a corner. Only from abysmal to acceptable, admittedly, but an improvement is an improvement.

Yeah, it actually looks quite good. And I think there's a bit of a selection biais regarding tall buildings in Korea. Most projects weren't reported here before, but between, say, 2005 and 2010, most projects were much lower, and they were really ugly commieblocks. I'm not saying they're building masterpieces today, but at least there is "some" effort to make it look decent. Sometimes it's only the painting, the front door, or some lightning on the top of the building, but it's an improvement over what was done before.

Also, Daelim, the company with the e-Convenient World and Acro brand, has the reputation of building buildings that are aesthetically satisfactory.

Damn, those are some nice looking residential towers. a HUGE change from commieblocks that's been an eyesore in every Korean city. Reminds me of residential towers/apartments somewhere in Latin America like Santiago Chile or Buenos Aires, Argentina, etc. The balconies are such a nice touch!!
