The International Business Center was a proposed supertall skyscraper in Seoul, South Korea. The skyscraper was planned to be 580 metres (1,900 ft), with 130 storeys.[1] A height limit of 410 m (1,350 ft) for the area was not enforced by the South Korean Air Force, allowing the structure to tower an additional 170 m (560 ft).[1]

The building was expected to be completed in 2013 but the project was cancelled.
