This is a view of 63 Square. In front of 63 Square, there is Wonhyo Bridge on the Han River, and Yeouido on the back.
The 63 Square skyscraper is a Yeouido landmark commanding spectacular views of the city. Standing 249 meters (817 ft) high and comprising of 60 floors and three basement levels, 63 Square is one of Korea’s tallest and most recognized buildings. The glass elevators which serve the viewing observatory ascend at a speed of 460 meters per minute, taking just 25 seconds to reach the top, giving passengers the sensation of a rocket-powered take-off as they enjoy breathtaking views. But the tower isn't just an observatory for panoramic views of the city, it is a multi-venue leisure complex featuring an aquarium, art gallery, IMAX cinema, performance hall and a wax museum, making it a popular spot for dates and family outings.
63 Square’s distinctive gold color is the real thing; each of the 14,000 panes of glass was coated with a thin film of 24-carat gold which catches the sunshine, reflecting gold, red and silver as the sun sets, giving the tower its stunning multi-colored sheen.
