It's a bold design. I figure that this is financed by private money, as are most supertall projects; however, it's interesting to me how many countries are now in a race to build supertalls - UAE, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, USA, China, Korea... Even with private money, the companies responsible seem to be tapping into some national pride/tower envy dynamic.

And I chuckle, wondering what Sigmund Freud would have to say

Still, I do love towers.

I think people are against this design because it looks similar to the Petronas Tower in Malaysia. I think the new design fits well with Seoul and has a unique design that other countries do not have. I am sooo excited that they are building this!!! Seoul really deserves a supertall like this!!! We are in fact one of the top 10 world economies today when we were in fact one of the poorest countries like only 40 years ago. Korea is a blessed country. I think Korea should be the one using the "God Bless" thing in "God bless America" lol.

Hey,

this is cool I hope it will get build.
Why should the fact that its Skybridge looks similar to Pelli's Petronas Towers are a bad thing?
It's not bothering me. I like those Skybridges. I hope that there are more of these in the future.

And if an architect copies a part of a design from another that should be a compliment. Anyway this is architecture. There is stealing unfortunately an ordinary part of work.

Back to topic. A really great designed Tower. Please let it get build. Both of them

I think the city is still buying out already existing apartments and such. It'll take awhile to clear out the area.

Actually, yes, it's a bad translation of an article saying that the development company has announced plans for an international bid for a redesign. First, they'll be narrowed down to 3~4 bidders, then one bidder will be selected for the final design of this project.

Well, a lot of people, including myself, strongly disagree.

It will be probably mixed office and residential. Not sure. The reason why it's called "Korean Rail Corp Tower" is because this is a redevelopment project for a former train depot owned by Korean Rail Corporation.

The old design was ok, but it could definitely be better.

Right now, I feel like this project will probably end like the IBC and Seoul Lotte Tower, legacies of Korea's hit-or-miss style.
