By the end of the 90th year, Yeouido's 63 buildings were the highest in Seoul. The 63 buildings were designed by the architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), which was built in 1980 and completed in 1985 with a 250-meter-high office. By the end of the 1990s, the demand for high-rise buildings had begun to increase. By the 1990s, the Samsung Group attempted to promote the building in the seat of Tower Palace in Togok-dong, but for various reasons, it was not granted permission, and it was divided into Tower Palace I, II, III to build an apartment and an office building. In 1999, phase III's Architectural Design Competition was launched, and the chicago-based SOM was selected. The initial design proposal was a 93-story building, although it is now a flat shape.
