I've lived in Busan for ten years. It's much nicer than it used to be. Was quite grim. That isn't a great part of town, but has so much potential. I agree with the 'landmark' comment. How about some nice 60 - 80 floor buildings that actually get built rather than proposals for 120 floor buildings. The Centum City area will be nice in a few years. The city is definitely greener than it used to be. One thing that I despise here though, is the golf driving ranges. SO ugly. The one that bothers me the most is the near the UN Cemetery. Ruins the place!

as crappy as these pictures show, busan really is a great place
the part of the town that is being redeveloped is turning out quite nicely
im sure in a decade or two busan will be much more pleasant to look at

That last pic is amazing: It is like the city said, well the traffic sucks in our town, so lets just put a freeway and bridge way out in the water and that will allow us to get around. Gotta love Asia.

Please do.

BTW I have also been in Busan some years ago and didn't find the place rerally pretty. It looked like stuck in the 70s or something. It has potentials though considering 80% of Korea's foreign trade passes throught the port.

I think the ferris wheel is by Gwanghali beach , which is further north than where they will build the tower. Someone with a map -- quick!

hehe

and yes there is a ferries wheel, but in north of busan (aslong the coast) ... just seen from ship. The Lotte Tower is also printed in the touristmaps and in the metrostations, but just the tower isnt completed hehe. and the progress is a bit slowly, hope they keep pushing.

We discussed that circrular thing a few pages before and the conclusion was, that is not a tower. See last render:
you can see that circular building there.

The thing is will they build the hole complex without the tower ?
And M.Schwerdtner did you see any core there when you took the pics ?
Because I think It would be rather very very strange a building of this size that dont have a core ...
