Incheon Tower - Incheon
The Incheon Tower is an approved 151-floor, 610 m (2,001 ft) tower in Incheon, South Korea currently under construction. It will cover over six square kilometers of land and will be about 20 miles (32 km) away from the nation's capital, Seoul. The building will be part of a residential, office, and hotel complex, covering 1,500 acres (6 kmē) and costing $11 billion. This tower is estimated to be completed in 2012. The Incheon Tower will be tied with the Guangzhou TV & Sightseeing Tower as the fifth-tallest building when it is complete after the Burj Dubai (818 m (2,684 ft), Lanco Hills Signature Tower (640 m (2,099 ft)) Pentominium (618 m (2,028 ft)) and the Russia Tower (612 m (2,008.53 ft). Portman Holdings, run by Atlanta developer John Portman, has built a number of towers in Shanghai, China, and Singapore, although none have made the list of the world's 10 largest buildings. The proposed tower would also be significantly larger than anything else in South Korea. The tallest building there is a 72-floor, 865-foot tower that's part of the Samsung Tower Palace complex in Seoul.
