We all should feel happy that KT is actually being built.
It will be a technical accomplishment, as never seen before.
People in the west are used to large towers being built because there is demand to live or work somewhere.

Sorry if I have tapped into frustration. I am from the western world and adore this project. What I am commenting on is that this is happening much slower than they were saying it would. That is why we keep getting updated timelines. It reminds me of Burj Khalifa, there was a lot of mystery as to why the curtain wall was taking so long. Only later did we learn about the bankruptcy and need to re-tender. I do not doubt this amazing project. I just wonder what the story will be.
Projects this big always have unexpected issues to overcome. What I find most inspiring is how creative they can be in overcoming them.
As much as some western people can be rude out of jealousy, many who live in the KT region shouldn't be so jealously defending the tower that no one on the forum can ask questions. It will be built, it will be beautiful, so everyone relax.

An ocean, shorelines, roadway... but... but I thought this was being built in the middle of nowhere.
