  • The 63 Building (Hangul: 63 빌딩 or 육삼 빌딩), officially the 63 City, is a skyscraper on Yeouido island, overlooking the Han River in Seoul, South Korea. At 249 meters (817 ft) high, it was the tallest building outside North America when completed in 1985 and is the tallest gold-cladded structure in the world. It was South Korea's tallest building until Hyperion Tower surpassed it in 2003 and remained South Korea's tallest commercial building until the Northeast Asia Trade Tower was topped-out in 2009. The 63 Building was built as a landmark for the 1988 Summer Olympics. 63 refers to the building's 63 official stories, of which 60 are above ground level and 3 are basement floors. The skyscraper is the headquarters of Korea Life Insurance, Industrial Bank of Korea Securities, and other major financial companies.
