look kind of desolate amongst those buildings, hope they build some 300m+ buildings to surround these towers to give it a much nicer appearance from faraway

I was talking to someone here in Korea yesterday who is connected to
the IFEZ and works within the greater project, and according to him and
other people with him - this project is definitely going to be built.

All the financial and planning groundwork seems to be in place.
The latest issue of the IFEZ journal for Oct. has letters of support
for the over-all project from the Mayor of Incheon and Council
members. The tower/s are really the centerpiece of all all promotional
material to do with the IFEZ and it is very unlikely that the people
who are undertaking this project or have backed it are going to
'lose face' by letter the towers be stalled without an exceptional reason.

Most likely construction will start in December.

Of course, nothing is 100% until the building is well underway, but
it looks like this project is going to happen in the very near future.

Will keep my fingers crossed.

Yep - sorry about the typo's in the last post. It was made at night after
what seemed like an especially long day at work.

The post M.Schwerdtner made with the promo poster from Seoul
illustrates what I alluded to. These towers are at the forefront of
a lot of promo material for Incheon and for this to happen it reflects
that the project is very consolidated both with business and with
government. In Korea it would be very much a 'loss of face' to
project something like this to be a pending reality then have it
not eventuate.

Incheon is on the subway line from Seoul but I may need to drive
to the location to check it out fully. Come December when the
project construction is due to begin I'll try to get there and take some
pics.

Obviously with Koreans building in Dubai - they have the technical
know-how in place to replicate what they are building in the ME
back in S Korea.

I live just a few kms from Songdo shin doshi. I go down there on a regular basis. I can't really tell which site is for the twin towers though. But the overall land reclamation project is quite impressive. There's a small mountain just north of Songdo New City (in the old Songdo area) that provides a good overview of the area.

Great - please keep adding in info if it comes to hand.

If at all possible please post some pictures of the site. Thanks.

Yup; there's been pressure on the government to actually build the Incheon Towers -- so it'll be one of the first 300+ supertalls that'll start construction in Korea.

Development News-2008.1.2-February Construction start!

송도 151층 쌍둥이빌딩 이르면 2월 착공

인천 송도국제도시의 랜드마크가 될 151층(610m) 규모의 인천타워(조감도)가 이르면 2월 착공된다.

안상수 인천시장은 3일 “송도국제도시 6ㆍ8 공구에 세워질 인천타워 부지에 대한 지질조사가 최근 마무리 단계에 와 있다”며 “기초파일 위치와 수량 등이 정해지는 2월말이나 3월초 본격 공사에 들어갈 계획”이라고 말했다.

미국 포트만홀딩스, 삼성물산, 현대건설 등이 참여한 포트만 컨소시엄은 총 17조원을 투자, 송도 6ㆍ8 공구내 공공용지 등 일부를 제외한 230만㎡를 2017년까지 개발할 계획이다.

초고층 쌍둥이 빌딩 인천타워에는 대형 호텔, 쇼핑타운, 전문 상가, 비즈니스센터, 주상복합아파트 등이 들어서며 2012년 완공될 예정이다. 인근에는 73만㎡의 인공호수가 들어서는 등 세계적인 랜드마크 도시로 조성된다.

인천경제청은 지난해 9월 외관, 구조, 내진, 엘리베이터 등 분야별로 세계적인 전문엔지니어링사를 선정해 연말까지 기본설계를 마쳤다.

인천타워는 공사기간을 단축하기 위해 공사와 설계를 병행하는 패스트 트랙방식을 채택한다.

인천시와 포트만컨소시엄은 2006년2월 양해각서에 이어 지난해 7월 기본협약을 맺었다.
