Asia's tallest skyscraper will rank second in the world

When the Eye of Sauron Lotte Super Tower 123 is completed in South Korea in 2014, it will be rivaled in height only by the insane Burj Dubai, which stands 2,684 feet to the Super Tower's impressive 1,821 feet. It's been designed by US-based Kohn Pederson Fox Architects and will be built in southern Jamsil section of Seoul, near the Han River.

In the end, the structure will be a mixed-use space including apartment, hotel and office space, and will strive for LEED silver certification, which means environmentally-minded designs will feature heavily in the construction.
