Yeah only the stuff in green net is the core. This btw I think is the first core so big that it is made in stages In terms of size I'm pretty sure it bits shanghai tower, and ping'ans cores easily

That might be. I can imagine that South Korea might be targeted by terrorists so it is only good that they're making their buildings strong and safe

Can a page go by in this thread where the Shard isn't mentioned?

I get that they're both big and blue and decrease in size as they go up, but doesn't that describe most buildings going up these days? Sheesh.

Someone woke up on the wrong side of the shard this morning.
The reason people say it is because its true and I am talking about the
top not because its blue.

Well I think that the Bank of America Tower and Empire State Building look the same because they're both pointy on top....
C'mon people.

can't believe how far these buildings are towards each other, i thought the different projects were a lot further apart from each other.

It's a trick of perspective. Going by Google maps, they're about 10-11km apart. The Hyundai Global Business Center is much closer to the Lotte Tower than the Yongsan development, almost right across the river (maybe 2-3km away). The supertalls are going to be pretty spread out in Seoul.
