I'm not sure about the number of basements but is probably the older version of doing the foundation.

I just answered this. There are 7 levels (I was the structural engineer for this basement).

I finished the basement design and moved on to new projects with a new company. I worked entirely on this project for a year while I was at Arup. I was in Seoul in April when it was only halfway down and it looked absolutely MASSIVE. Despite it just looking like a big hole, the complexity of the structure is greater than on any other project I've encountered, especially in the top-down area under the hotel.

I do know that there has been a bit of re-design going on with the superstructure. But the basement excavation had to be started early, so the basement design was finalised much earlier than the towers and retail/hotel.

There is some kind of mistake about Parc1's height here.
The tallest one is the office tower A with 72 stories and its height is 332.7m
The other is office tower B with 59 stories and its height is 271.7m.

Korean cities are really mind-blowing, the buildings look so modern in the photos, and mesh in well with their surroundings.

Do you know how long those cranes have been there? The piling rigs were there for ages.
