The skyline in Incheon is going to be so lopsided D:
With two or three supertalls in Cheongna in the north than several more in Songdo in the south.

But I have to admit that I love this tower.

Interesting TV tower + twins layout. Guangzhou chose a similar one.

That is just an old conceptual painting just in order to show the Cheongna developments visually. Such conceptual renderings in korea are so often dull..lol.
The tower in the bottom of the pic is the one now being chosen to 'the infinity tower' design.

this is some great news but for a 450m tall It's quite hard to fit 150f maybe they'll make it taller

That is a drop dead gorgeous tower, though I have to say, I liked the Inverse Obelisk proposal the best. Hope it gets built without a hitch!

Groundbreaking for Tower Infinity is scheduled in 2010 and completion in 2013.



Covering 110,425 sq m of site space the development will house a culture park, performance center, indoor waterpark, kids town, retail space, a museum, sports and fitness facilities and the second highest tower observation deck in the world at 392m.

pic gallery:







NB: The top of the tower is 456m! Change the title.

That's not very tall for a 150 floor tower.

I like the design of the Water Drop Tower for having nature as its inspiration. :}

Very nice, love the low "split", which makes it look more fragile/unstable but equally the more exciting.
