^^ As you know CBD LIMITED BY height zone law which mean can't construct over 150m. According to the korea Cultural Properties Protection Law CBD can not construct huge building.(like paris) So in the CBD There is no skyscraper like Newyork.I lived there for two years and I know Seoul's skyscrapers are spread all over the city- and that's why Seoul doesn't seem to have one significant skyline.
They have 3~4 big skyscraper clusters in the city. Each of them is about the size of Downtown Toronto, and I think they will merge at some point in the future and create a mega skyline.
This thing is happening in Tokyo as well.
You are right.I think its great you want to contribute but I think this thread needs to be moved to the Korean Forum or deleted. The Korean Forum already has the U/C thread for Seoul and in the Cityscapes Forum, there is a Seoul City Life thread that has been very active and has numerous images of Seoul. In the future, lets check first before posting as repetitive threads are not very attractive in a forum. For ultimate Seoul pics, of if you wish to post recent pics, please check out:
^^ Appreciate Dear christos-greece :lol:Absolutely very nice photos from Seoul inno... well done
As far as I know, Tokyo also has building height restriction.As far as I know only Seoul korea have capital limited regulation(Hongkong/Tokyo/Singgapore have no limited). Very unreasonable regulation.
