Yes, the Tower Palace apartments are in Gangnam.

But Gangnam is really huge, basically everything south-west of Han river is Gangnam. "Gang-Nam" literally means "South of the River" in Korean





The white border is Gangnam district.
Over half a million people live there.

I love it - This building cladding goes up as it rises - it will be nearly completed when it is topped out - now that's building Skyscrapers!

Thank you! It's very huge, indeed! It might sound stupid, but is the whole Gangnam is luxurious and upscale or just a certain part of it?

Same as Imster said, the cladding rises as the bldg.. You don't see that often.
This and GF 117,, are the best rising...
For you former's who haven't at least checked out GF117,, do it.
Ping An, ST and CTF,, pretty good too. 432 where do I stop? Lot's of great projects going on.

Just a part of it.
If you take a look again on the map that I postet, between Tower Palace and the mountains/hills in the south there is Seoul's poorest slum area.

Also many parts of Gangnam are not luxurious, but just expensive.

this just happened near Seokchon lake (not far from LWT)
that's a bit more than just a casual pothole

exact reason is unknown yet, but you can be sure that the shitstorm against LWT will get bigger
people already suspect that LWT construction is the reason for it, according to media.

source: http://news.chosun.com/site/data/htm...080502324.html

EDIT: According to other news sources the reason for the hole can be the subway construction that is currently happening around that area.
Further investigation will clarify the exact cause.

about 1km away from LWT
MOREOVER that hole due to Subway 9 site construction ongoing!!
SAMSUNG and songpa district official admit that hole make by subway construction.(now samsung inc,subway construction main company, inspect hole)
Absolutely no relation with LWT
as i said these news useless stupid people's conspiracy theory.

irrational korea journal spread rumor and attack against LWT

COMEDY

As i said before we don;t need pay attention those irrational elementary kids's news and story.
because they just hate skyscraper and seoul city. it is concern not scientific fact but jealous!!!!

There's a very big problem with confirmation bias in Korea.

That looks more than a pothole but if there are underground works underneath that is likely to happen if the builders haven't considered what is over the tunnel...

Back to the topic nice pics Inno, they show the cladding very well

It's a shame that so many Koreans seem so susceptible to rumors. Reminds of Ga-in's song, "Truth or Dare" . As Shaddory said, it's not unusual to have crazy concerns about the construction of something on this scale in a place that hasn't seen it before. But all said and done, I frankly don't expect the worries will have any effect on the completion of the tower.

This is reason what i love SSC. I'm very glad to talk with rational people.
Today all headline news in korea covered with accused LWT.
Ton of thousands korean internet users(95%) blame LWT with nonsense rumors.
When i explain about scientific fact they attack me with abusive words. it seems like a zombie.

My country people just BORING. They have no physical war in korea peninsular. finished world cup. economy so so. no inflation. Just life is boring. They just want some playing&gossip. That is only reason why LWT bite by them.

bytheway even korean intentional attack LWT they can't stop LWT construction. they can't bit LWT.
But i'm worry. others NEW rising prepare or proposed supertall project in seoul will be attack by those zombie.
(Recently JEJU island skscraper project-over 50fl twin tower was disapprove by same reason
