So, does this mean 500 meters is the new 300 meter?

anyway, design as shown is very generic, almost to the point of, who cares about the design, its 510 meters

That is DEFINITELLY for a BIG tower and the fact that a lift pit is not present doesn't mean anything, since there are different lift technologies a pit may or may not be neccessary. Also the hole will NOT get bigger, as someone stated above.

(I'm not a professional but I've seen/experienced alot of towers going up)

I can't believe you actually think it is for the tower?? There seems to be a thirst on this forum sometimes to see towers go up contrary to presented evidence and to be honest....bloody common sense!

That hole IS deep but perfectly suited to the shape and location of the circular building shown at this location on the "official" rendering. If in fact it is an underground parking facility then theres no reason why it shouldn't be as deep as we see from the photos and the "small" building you refer to is anything but, it may have only 5 levels but those floors are pretty high. By saying this is DEFINITELY the location of the tower you are contradicting any of the evidence (i.e. renders) which clearly show a circular low/mid rise building at this location and not a tower, which seems to be pretty well backed up by the construction photos. On that basis I don't know how anyone can take your comments, or the other various mutterings on here about this being the hole for the tower, seriously. You may have seen/experienced a lot of towers going up but I'm afraid this aint one of em!

Anyway this debate is getting boring....no doubt the coming months will settle this as construction continues apace.

I was refering to the rebar, not to the depth or shape. Read post 255.

Excuse me of course, but... what rebar are you talking about?

Please keep such comment to yourself, its offending no matter what. Think about it if someone say such things about your home city. Thanks

I just had a look at the renders on the first site of the thread... this complex looks strange in the area. Doesn't fit well in my opinion... well, but the investors say it has to be a "landmark"... ...landmarks, landmarks, landmarks... would be better for the city and the people if the build some smaller, nicer skyscrapers instead of one big ugly with a giant-wheel on the roof!
@ Culwulla: The bridge is the best construction in the pictures above, looks much better than the rest...

Can i also just say one thing without offending like you?

Every city on the planet has beautiful parts and ugly parts.
Busan is no exception.

Have you ever been to there before?
You can't simply judge the whole city if you've never been there.

Frankly and personally, Busan has many ulgy parts indeed
But I think that some parts are much better than your city, Sydney or any austrailian cities.
Sydney is beautiful city as a whole.
but some parts have nothing atractive to me(Granted that tastes differ.)
uninspiring boxy buildings and grotesque bridge...nothing special to me when I was there.

I hope you don't get offended like I don't get offended.
this is my honest opinion.

anyway, let's not forget that this thread is not for whether city is ugly or not.

the tower looks good, but it should be in the middle of other towers, not alone like this...
