South Korea has attracted multi-billion dollar project to the Inchon (Incheon) Free Economic Zone (FEZ),

The Ministry of Finance and Economy (MOFE) said yesterday the Inchon municipal government and Atlanta-based global real estate developer, Portman Holdings, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for jointly developing the No. 6 and 8 blocks of the Songdo-Inchon FEZ.

The multi-phased $11 billion project includes construction of twin-towered. 151-story skyscraper, the highest in Northeast Asia.

The project is part of Koreas efforts to transform 1,500 acres of reclaimed land into an unrivaled business hub for Northeast Asia.

Inchon City Mayor Ahn Sang-soo and Portman Holdings vice chairman Jack Portman signed the MOU at the World Trade Club in Atlanta.

The construction consortium led by Portman Holdings plans to complete the tower by August 2010.

Inchon city government and the Portman consortium will finalize the development plans over the next six months, the MOFE said.

it's hardly in the "middle of nowhere"

Incheon itself has over 2,000,000 people and the Seoul-Incheon metro area is somewhere near 24,000,000.

The proposed development is on reclaimed land in Incheon Harbar, close to the airport.

There is tons of money behind the development, and considering that a Korean company is in charge of building Burj Dubai, there's no reason to believe this won't happen.

I think it looks elegant. I don't know why it is not attracting much attention. Globil--You seem so protective of this tower. One slight thing somebody says you get all hyped out about it.

Like I've said before; that is what they should build at ground zero.
