Golden 63 building

the 63 building

The 63 Building (or Yeoksam Building) is once the tallest building in Seoul. It is one of the eye-catching landmarks in Yeouido that offers spectacular vistas of the capital city.

With the completion of Lotte Tower, which stands over 100 stories tall, 63 Building is now just ranked the second tallest building in the country.

The Building stood 249 meters (around 817 feet) high and comprised of 60 floors and three basement floors.

I could not forget the first time I explored the building with my friends during my first few weeks in Korea. For one, I was amazed to watch my first IMAX cinema experience in this very building.

Another interesting physically feature of the building is its glass elevators. These elevators do not only serve as lifts but also as viewing observatory. It ascends at 460 meters per minute, and it only takes 25 seconds to reach the top floor.

Further, 63 Building is distinctively colored in golden yellow. It might surprise you to know that the gold color is a real thing: each glass pane is coated with a thin film of 24-carat gold.

The 14,000 panes reflect the sunshine with gold, red, and silver colors during sunset. This appearance makes the tower distinctively stunning to the viewers!

It is like taking a rocket taking-off while enjoying the astonishing views of the city. That’s just one of the fantastic features you can experience. See more below
