Seoul's tallest is Tower Palace 3 (264 m), second is Mokdong Hyperion (256m) and third is 63 building (249 m).

Now there is a reason why the tallest skyscrapers in Seoul are around the same height. We have this stupid height restriction that has prevented the construction of the many proposed supertalls (i.e. Samsung's 100 floor+ HQ was replaced by 3 or 4 50 storey towers).

We do have many proposals over 100 floors coming in, Lotte II tower being the most famous. Rumours are that Lotte II tower was passed and it is under construction.

I do agree that Seoul doesn't have a big "wow" factor like 2IFC and Hong Kong or the Petronas and Kuala Lumpur. However, I think Seoul has one of the most pleasing skylines in the World: The skyline is very balanced and the skyscrapers are as modern as you can find anywhere else in the World.

Lets just hope that the Lotte II tower gets built

Taipei 101 looks like a middle finger to show to the world that we have the tallest scraper.

This is my list of top 5 downtown views (in no particular order except for the first one ). Too many good skylines it's hard to choose.

HK


Singapore


KL


Tokyo


Shanghai

In Asia there are a lot of beauty skylines, but no one is like HK's.

Hong Kong is not one more. It's the asian skyline!
