Dream Tower (Korean: 드림 타워) is a 665 m megatall skyscraper proposed to be built in the new Yongsan International Business District, Seoul, South Korea.[1] It will replace the original Triple One Tower. The Triple One Tower was supposed to be 620 meters. However, it has been renamed Dream tower (Korial Tower), and has been redesigned.

With 150 stories, the building will be the centrepiece of the Yongsan Dreamhub, a 28-trillion-won ($22.6-billion) project to be built on the banks of the Han River near Yongsan Station.[1] Demolition of the site started in 2010 and ground breaking was scheduled to start in 2011.[2]
