The decision isn't final; Samsung is the primary bidder to the contract at the moment. I dearly hope that the Samsung Consortium doesn't get this project, because their concept design looks ugly as hell. I'd say the concept design from their rival, the Hyundai-Prime Consortium, looks hell lot better:

Samsung Consortium Chosen to Build Yongsan Int’l Biz Zone

By Ryu Jin
Staff Reporter

A consortium led by Samsung Corporation and National Pension Service was selected as a priority bidder for the 28 trillion won ($31 billion) construction of an international business zone in central Seoul, which would include a landmark skyscraper.

According to KORAIL on Friday, the state-run railroad firm selected the consortium made up of Samsung and 25 other firms as the priority bidder of the future negotiation for the construction of the ``Yongsang International Business Zone.’’

KORAIL would set up a special project company along with the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the consortium, which would be finally chosen as the successful bidder, to begin the country’s single largest construction project in 2011.

``We will complete all the negotiations with the priority bidder as soon as possible,’’ a KORAIL official said on condition of anonymity. ``We will also speed up the necessary works such as the establishment of the project company and relocation of facilities.’’

Covering a total of 566,000 square meters of land in Yongsan, central Seoul, the envisioned zone will house facilities for international business and trade, commercial and cultural complexes as well as residential areas.

Currently, the zone is divided into the 442,000-square-meter state-owned land used for railroads, train depots, a train maintenance center, logistics centers and a postal office and the 124,000-square-meter private land in Seobuichon-dong, adjacent to Yongsan.

In particular, the new international business zone would have a 152-story, 620-meter high building that will be one of the symbols of the metropolitan city along with the 640-meter DMC Landmark Tower in Sangam-dong, western Seoul.

International passenger and cargo terminals would also be built in Seobuichon-dong and a green pedestrian’s path linking the Han River bank, Yongsan Railway Station, the skyscraper and Yongsan Park, according to the metropolitan city government.

Prime and Hyundai Engineering & Construction also made a bid along with 29 other firms for the construction project. But KORAIL chose the consortium led by Samsung as the priority bidder after a one-month review of the two bidders’ proposals.

Under the concept of the ``Dream Hub,’’ the Samsung-National Pension Service consortium has proposed developing the zone into a globally recognized multi-purpose complex with finance, information technology (IT) and tourism as its three main pillars.

Samsung is also building the 160-story Burj Dubai tower in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which would be completed next year. Currently, the world’s highest skyscraper is the 508-meter-tall Taipei Financial Center in Taiwan with 101 stories.

Samsung Consortium Selected Yongsan Int’l Business District Developer

The Samsung-National Pension consortium has been selected as the developer of the nation’s first-rate international business district to be built in Yongsan, Seoul.

Korea Railroad Corporation, the Yongsan international business district development project’s manager, held the press conference in the Seoul Palace Hotel on Friday where it announced its selection of the Samsung-National Pension consortium over the Prime-Hyundai Construction consortium as the preferred bidder through examination of business schemes presented by the two final bidders.

Accordingly, Korail will establish a special purpose company (SPC) along with the preferred bidder by the end of this month and formulate plans for development of the Yongsan international business district while also joining hands with Seoul Metropolitan Government to carry out the development project.

Yongsan international business district is expected to be a new landmark of Seoul as a 566,800-square-meter site ranging from Yongsan station to western Ichon will be developed into a top-notch international business district with a 150-story complex building and advanced commercial and residential neighborhoods. The construction is to be completed by December 2018 and the total construction costs are estimated to be 28 trillion won.

* currently, 28 trillion won = US $ 30.84 billion

The Samsung tower is more notable compared to Hyundai's tower.
IMO, I prefer the Samsung tower -- it kind of grew on me : D

Burj Dubai is NOT 601 metres in that pic - it's actually 586, with 16 metres of the core underground.
