what? the land hasn't been sold yet. It will be sold this year by public bidding.

There are several interested buyers, and every buyer has different plans with the land.

Hyundai Motor has officially expressed intent to buy the land to build a new corporate headquarters added with a hotel, a convention center and an automobile theme park.

China's property developer Greenland Group and U.S. casino operator Las Vegas Sands Corp. are also said to have shown interest.

The Seoul city government plans to use part of the land to build a sports-culture-entertainment complex.
There will be for sure a new supertall (or at least a skyscraper) on this site, but its unsure if it will be that one i guess.
At least Hyundai has their own design for a supertall, which looks very different than that.

If it gets build, I don't think we get this design, nor this height. But will be interesting to see what comes out of it

Yes, I think it was quite premature to revive/repost this project thread. I'm excited to see something tall go up here, especially so close to LWT, but we don't know who's going to build here, what the tower(s) will look like, how tall it/they will be, or when construction would start.

Let's not jump the gun, here.
