Looks great at night.

We will most probably see an array of night illuminations on this tower once it's opened.

IDK why, but I think the renders made this tower look fatter than it actually is. This turned out really great! I sure hope the crown will be lit up once the Tower is completed, it would make this skyscraper look absolutely stunning at night!

Progress over the last few days:
- The tarp/net has now been removed over both sides of the crown. Now the tarp only remains where the uppermost floor and the crown connect
- The last large uncladded part of the building (which was where a small crane was set) is now being cladded (around 80-85th floor). It should be all done by Thursday I think.

Nice shot.

There is a nice Jimjilbang (a public bathhouse) along this street with a very affordable price to spend the night (I recall around 7000 won back then). It was well equipped and clean.

It's a better alternative for cheap hostels (usually dirty and far from central hubs) for those on tight budget. I remember I stayed there 3 nights and saved great deal of money .

There is a stage in building's construction where the building seems to get life of its own and looks very vivid and vital.

"Cheer up Korea!"? Nice banner, but personally I don't think I'd have managed to withstand the temptation to write "How's this for a skyscraper, Northerners?"

So happy I haven't been to Seoul yet in my life. Now I can plan to travel in the next few years and enjoy this beautiful masterpiece!

There it is!

The tarp/net at the base of the crown is gone. This photo is from yesterday, but I think the net was taken off sunday because I was near the Han River on Sunday and I noticed from afar that it looked like they took the net off. But I wasn't 100% sure back then.

So now, it doesn't look like there is much left to do on the outside. The opening is still planned for December, although some reports say that it will be hard to get everything completed on time. So we'll see...
