What a horrible chunk of shit! As always Korea fails to deliver in the realm of supertalls. They first design was downright amazing and this is just a bland glassy triangular Kingkey Finnance Center. It is truly sad how everyone rolls over and drools at a plain 1500 foot glass dick. It is shaped like all Busan skyscrapers ; AKA We've the Zenith, or WBC the Palace. How pathetically disgusting and unoriginal!

What Ever dude!!! I think this tower looks great!! Like a Tower Palace and Burj Kalifa hybrid. Busan has alot coming in the pipeline. I invite you to come see it for yourself in person. I was walking by We've the Zenith and was like "Wow" these are looking great. "Glass dick" ouch your wife must love you... looks nothing like a dick

Well I do agree it is damn ugly, but in the same time it's so massive that you have to look at it with respect

Im thoroughly disappointed that they've changed a breathtakingly, forward-thinking design into something cheesy that belongs in the Gulf!

You gotta be kidding me. The old design was beyond terrible. There is nothing "breathtaking" and "forward-thinking" about crooked towers, it's lazy pseudo-architecture to impress the simple-minded, nothing more.

Good thing that ridiculous "design" got shelved, after the cancellation of the Signature Towers in Dubai it's the second time we've been spared the construction of such a joke.

its also very unlikely to be built, considering the track record of Korean supertalls over 350m

Very disappointing change of design. I hope someone else builds something akin to the original proposal.

Well don't pop a blood vessel, but unlike some people on this site I don't consider every tall building with glass cladding to be an awesome and wonderful thing. And on your other point, I have designed dozens of formidable skyscrapers including some concepts that no one has ever seen. Go ahead and don't belive me, I don't give a shit, but you will see some of my stuff coming up soon. And don't be angry, it takes years off your life.

I think it looks pretty good. Maybe not fashionable, but massive and noble.

dozens of Korean megatalls proposed, none built. Only the more "realistic" ones like NEATT and Parc1 have a chance, and even they've had difficulty in the financing process.
