PostSubject: Teardrop On The Fire   Mon Nov 08, 2010 11:50 pm

Approval has been given to a new super tall skyscraper in Seoul, South Korea.

The project which has been undertaken by the Korean Rail Corp will upon completion stand at a healthy 615 metres which would make it the second tallest in the world, after Burj Dubai which standing at 830 metres holds the title at least for now. This of course assumes nothing taller would be built in between.

The 150 storey tower will be centre-piece in a new international business district which will be close to Yongsan station which is already a central hub for transport with railroads, train depots, a train maintenance centre, logistics centres and a postal office already located there.

When originally proposed the design saw a pretty bog standard two tower project connected with sky bridges but thankfully it went back to the drawing boards and re-emerged as an inverted teardrop.

Standing in the centre what could be its very own henge of skyscrapers, the tower will have glass facades which along with the rounded shape add to the watery, teardrop appearance of the tower. Of course not all the height is tower these days and this tower has its own rather ample spire to fit in with the current fashion that continues the shape of the main bulk of the tower organically.

The tower will be mixed use with the usual residential, office and shopping provided rather neatly in one place. Residents, visitors and workers to the tower will no doubt be able to look forward to the use of the now familiar amenities of spas, gymnasiums, restaurants, public green spaces and the like.

If the project is realised, work is expected to start on the tower 2011 and should be completed by 2016. Whether this happens is another thing entirely as South Korea has an almost one hundred percent record of proposing super-tall towers that never get built
