South Korea’s Tallest Skyscraper Opens

South Korea’s tallest building, the Northeast Asia Trade Tower (NEATT), has finally opened after being completed nearly three years ago. American firm Kohn Pedersen and Fox designed the tower and New York developer Gale International worked with South Korean steel company Posco Engineering and Construction to build the structure. The skyscraper is part of the $35 billion Songdo International Business District that was built from scratch starting eight years ago. The 1000-foot, $614 million skyscraper was completed in 2011, but its interior was not finished due to financial difficulties during the recession. After a three year delay, the NEATT is finally opening its doors to the public.
