Construction of surrounding buildings will not start before KT reaches a certain height (40 - 50 floors).
This is because of the behaviour of the underground, due to the heavy tower and it's foundation. The subsoil still did not come to rest.
This was the same with Burj Khalifa.

What the direct surrounding of KT will finally look like is not for 100% clear to most of us. Many renders have passed over the years.
Within 5 years, this area will look totally different from now. That's for sure!
We just need some patience...

why would they use climbers for the floor plates? they are just using scaffolding from the floor below as is normal.

I wish we will see some photos for the areas around the tower in the near future and I hope they will be from the highest floor of the core

It changed the design of the KT cameras! It has more features also comes with time-lapse updated! the only bad thing is that it took the option to manually select the day...but it is great! And apparently the cam 1 is disabled yet ...

I really wish there were more skyscrapers around this building. It's just seems to be in the middle of nowhere.
