^yep and if either of the towers was being built in London or New York it would probably cost closer to 20 or 30 billion. Economics is fascinating, the geography of an area also makes a lot of difference, for example dubai has very solid bedrock very close to the surface (50m or less in most places), whereas London is built on clay. Labour costs obviously vary dramatically, in dubai it is extremely cheap, in London maybe 10 times more expensive? Dunno much about the economy, geography or employment laws of Incheon, but its easy to see how prices can vary on such huge projects.

By the way the thread says approved, but i dont remember seeing anything new on this tower for at least a year, do we know if anything is actually happenning with this, or has it gone stale?

No wonder why the new World trade center in New York is such a big deal, even though it's not that tall compared to newer projects.

The towers are being built in a big multi-billion dollar project: http://www.songdo.com/default.aspx
(However the site doesn't mention the Incheon Towers, because the towers are being built in a separate lot of reclaimed land)

This is an old picture, a lot more land is reclaimed and more buildings are constructed than shown. The towers will be built somewhere in this area.

I'm so in love with the twin towers. This is fantastic news! Very high and simple towers with skybridges, couldn't get any better. The top looks nice too. Sharp roof(s) and a glassy facade. My my...

That's $11 billion for the entire project. Which includes 1,500 acres of land reclamation and a total of 2.9 million sqm of space. Quotes for the towers alone run around $3 billion.

Looks like it needs a major overhaul from an organized garbage dump to a people friendly development. If these two towers rise above that mess that would be a shame.

BTW...I love these buildings, they would be beautiful regardless if they rise from shangrila or organized hell.

That's not where the buildings are going. I'm not sure what part of Incheon that is, but it's certainly not Songdo.

Why do the Incheon Towers cost $11,000,000,000? The project will be a major-league waste of money for Incheon!

I love this design.

Anybody else the towers look like a pair of chopsticks? It's the first thing that came to mind when I saw the design off of digg a few weeks ago.

Hey thanks huffdaddy, that's good news they aren't going there. I hope there is an observatory at the very top. That would be fantastic.

The towers will be in Songdo, in City Zone 6 and 8 -- according to the IFEZ site, and construction is slated for this December apparently: http://eng.ifez.go.kr/
