About Northeast Asia Trade Tower
Northeast Asia Trade Tower's tapering form is well suited for its mixed-use program, creating large floor plates at the base for office function, smaller floor areas higher up for hotel, then residential-a beautiful solution to the changing programmatic needs of the ever increasingly common mixed-use towers. Holding a prominent presence in the New Songdo City skyline, the tower anchors what is an all new community as an extension of the city of Incheon. See Project Case Study
