Seoul Plans World’s Tallest Building

The Korea Times reports that Seoul will have its long-awaited trophy skyscraper in a few years _ a mammoth, 220-story building that will be the tallest in the world if the mayor of the city’s Chunggu District has things his way.

The businessman-turned-administrator _ known more as the founder of “Two-Two Fried Chicken,” — one of the country’s largest restaurant franchises — had urban planners make upward adjustments of their original plan for a 150-story building to a 220-story one to achieve the title of the world¡¯s tallest. There is currently a 160-story building under construction in Dubai.

Although the district office is considering a number of candidate sites for the new building, redeveloping the area now occupied by the aging Seun Electronics Market is considered a logical option.
