Another taipei is forming
Yes but unlike taipei101 this looks great by itsself.

BTW I hope they don't build that fugly eiffel tower ripoff. What a shame it'd be to replace that beauty of a tower with something really tacky.

Korea’s skyscraper history began with the construction of the 63 Building, a 60-story building 249 meters high, the highest in Asia at the time, in Yeouido-dong, Yeongdeungpo-gu in 1985.

Before the 63 Building was built, the 31-story Sam-il building (114 meters), which was constructed in 1969 and is located in Gwancheol-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, was the only tall building in Korea. Since 2003, the 63 Building, which remained the tallest building in Korea over the last 20 years, yielded that honor to the 69-story combined residential and commercial buildings such as the Hyperion in Mokdong, Yangcheon-gu, and the Tower Palace in Dogok-dong, Gangnam-gu Seoul, to become the third highest building.

Korea’s Tallest Building-

Although the 63 Building is still the nation’s tallest office building, it will drop further down the list in the near future. The 107-story “Busan Lotte World” building is currently under construction (due in 2013), and the construction of a second 112-story Lotte World building is being promoted:

Hmmm, I don't like the design really... and the location doesn't look very urban, given the fact that there's a supertall going to be built... I'm not really fond of this project, but it might change once it goes up...

These two images shows the first project for this skyscraper, at that time, it supposed to be the world's tallest, but i don't know today...






But seeing the new renders, i realize that i was very out of updates, i'll try to keep visiting this thread, thank you guys...

They're not digging the pit for the tower, only the low rise element next to it. Will believe it when I see it, Korean supertalls seem to be a pipe dream.

I think larven's right. If you compare this render to the photo of the site it's clear that there isn't any construction where the tower is supposed to go:
