Actually, that would be New York. And Chicago. And even LA. The definition of a 'supertall' is a skyscraper above the height of 300 m, and all of these cities have at least two buildings taller than 300 meters. Seoul would be the first OECD city that have two supertalls outside the US. This is evident even if you look at the supertall category. There are several threads about supertalls being built in NYC.

They're building a 500 m tall one in Yongsan? I thought the whole International Business District plan was botched. And the replacement plan that focuses on building parks don't seem to have a skyscraper that tall.

Sure. Youngsan Project botched long time ago.
But Now KORAIL under make special New plan youngsan project resume. Cause legal conflict almost finish(as like Parc1 which stop U/C due to legal conflict but end up this month U/C resume)

100% Over 500m tower will be built in Youngsan, Seoul.
I believe that 600m tower possible in Youngsan IBD. Cause youngsan area connected with immensely central park. Youngsan will be one of leading distirct in seoul

So Seoul has Three over 500m landmark.

One night sleep in LWT hotel is about $ 18,000

p.s Seoul, korea is 9th expensive city in apartment buying price in the world. $ 6659 /per ㎡
1. Hongkong
2. singafore
3. swizland
4. makao
5.uk
6.japan
7.luxcemberk
8.sweden
9.skorea

Meanwhile rent fee is very cheap 41th $536.35 for 1 room

This is one of my favorite Asian towers though. I like the observation deck with the transparent all rather glass floor.

So glad they kept the wood-heavy, curved aperture look for the lobby. Gorgeous.
