i actually prefer this design, the old design would have been an engineering nightmare with the slender towers... and tbh i dont think the old version was even a design i think it was just an impression, a vision, whereas this may be the first actual design proposal.

Good point, I never thought about that. I would rather stay in a secure tower than a possibly unstable tower.

This one looks more sensible to me. Prefer this design, the previous one looked like something from I-Robot/Star Wars, totally unrealistic.

i don't like it, imo it looks to simple and plain for such a tall tower.

my impression is that this project may be underway in the very near future.

With any luck I'll be able to get some photo's next time I'm in the Seoul
area.

BTW - this site is quite good to fully outline the scope of the project
and where that massive quote re the cost is drawn from ...

http://eng.ifez.go.kr/

I'm interested to know if it's going to be clearly seen on the flights
coming into the airport and if it's going to be clearly seen on the
Incheon - Seoul trip. If so - it will make a memorable first impression
on people coming into the country.

1st thing first... The entire SONGDO development area 63.6 million square yards is what will cost US$25 Billion dollar (Not US$11.1 billion) and NOT the tower itself.

Never before did anyone constructed a tower of this size and spent such amount. The Tower construction cost is at US$ 2.3 Billion dollar alone.

According to the developers site construction already started and is suppose to be done in end of 2009 - question is anyone is from that area that can verify that info or provide pics from construction?

You are prolly right, because scheduled construction completion is not 2009 it's 2013... The Incheon towers are the first part of this entire development stretching till 2020.

Looks somewhat like the old Al-Hamra tower design for Kuwait City, with its forkishness. Like it.
