SEOUL | Netmarble Tower | 175m | 40 fl | Pro

I reported in January about NetMarble looking to build a 40-floor building in Guro district. Project seems to be moving forward well and renders have been published for the project. And I think it looks very nice.

For comparison, the 182-meter Parnas Tower has "only" 38 floors, so this might be even taller in the end.

Mobile game company NetMarble Games is set to spend 390bn KRW (around $350mn) to build a new landmark building in the Southwestern Seoul district of Guro. The building will be 40 floors tall (CTBUH estimates for an office building : 175 meters) and will be built on the grounds of an old water purification plant. Negociations are still underway, but construction could begin in 2017. No renders available at this point. I will create a dedicated thread once the renders are made available.

Below is the location of the future building.

Love the cladding on these two; Korean architects seem to like to play around with cladding quite a lot.

New renders released. It looks very different from the previous design, but I think it's an interesting one as well. However, the height was decreased to 39 floors from 40 floors.

Today a MOU was signed between NetMarble Games, Korea Industrial Complex Corp (which owned the plant) and Seoul City Government regarding the development of the site.

NetMarble hopes to gain official approval by December, and begin construction in February 2017. Completion is planned for September 2019.

Hmm....Kinda torn. The new one looks interesting, as well, but in a more extroverted and less-meticulous kind of way than the old one did. Looks like they lost the second tower in the process, too.

Oh well. Certainly better than it could be; just have to wait and see how it turns out.

It looks like Tour HEKLA, that's going to be built in Paris, France. But I like really much the new design. I hope it will rise up to more than 150m.

It will almost certainly be over 150m. Even residential complexes of around 40 floors are around 150m in Korea. So commercial buildings are usually much taller, and given this project's design, I think we can expect around 180 meters. For reminder, Parnas Tower, just about to be completed is 183 meters and only 38 floors.

I love it. Reminds me of a more angular Toranomon Hills.

This is almost my home town project.
cause it located boundary line between geumcheon and guro.

So this project absolutely important for me!
I'm so exciting to see it rise up!!
It already get approved and soon U/C

this project donated huge space for public park and open space.
So I can enjoy their property by free. my home town area relatively poor class area. But this project can be game changer.

netmarble is amazing global game company.
you know once a time korea game company(nexson/ncsoft) try to M&A EA game of USA
netmable is great company now M&A canada game company and on the way extend business into n america.

So this company can be global top game company someday.

the new law apply to this netmable tower.
before skyscraper must evaluated about "environmental evaluation concern building" is require only over 50fl but law more strict so all over 16fl building must pass "environmental evaluation administration process" in seoul/sk

So that reason Netmable tower ground breaking delay than expect schedule.

Now LH examine "environmental evaluation" about this tower and they asking 9 part modified(require more reduce CO2 emission/air quality improved/sewage water improved) to GURO district office where netmable tower's location.

In short at the moment Netmable tower examine before ground breaking due to NEW enforced environmental law apply to netmable tower.
So now administration paper and redesign(not building shape but inside facility) render go and out and exchanged between LH and Seoul government.
And netmable company say "we will soon U/C begin as soon as possible when environmental process finished"

BTW this tower is located on almost my home town so very interesting and important for me.

Construction awarded to Lotte and Doosan.

The construction of the tower has been awarded to Lotte (70%) and Doosan (30%), for a total around USD 200 million. Construction will take 33 months from the start of the construction.

So, now the construction should start. I went there in August and it hadn't begun at the time, and I think your article (which is about the company in general and not this project in particular was inaccurate).

With the contracts now awarded, I think the construction will start within these next few months!

I wish they'd go back to that first design...so much more sophisticated.
