South Korea’s tallest tower opens for business


South Korea’s tallest building, the 308m Northeast Asia Trade Tower by US firm Kohn Pederson Fox has opened its doors for business – three years after its shell was constructed.

The NEATT building is at the centre of a new city called the Songdo International Business District, which has been built on 610 hectares of reclaimed land.

The structure of the skyscraper was completed in 2011, but the finishing of its interior was delayed due to the global economic downturn.


The tower features a faceted glass body tapering towards its summit. Inside 68 storeys accommodate offices, apartments and a hotel, each with their own entrance lobby.
