If you mean the drawings...yes, they are confidential and I can't post them. But there is nothing wrong about posting the numbers, since they are already available on the CTBUH Tall Building Database.

Busan Lotte Town Tower:

Tip of spire - 510.1m
Penthouse roof - 430.6
Highest occupied floor - 416.3
Lowest basement level: - 31.29m

All measurements are taken from the first floor plate at ground level and entrance.

About time we got an update on this, thanks.

Waiting for the final design, that might take a while longer I'm afraid.

Korea do we know anything about the final height of this one? Will it be reduced, or stay 640m?

if the spire stays the same. i looked at the skyscraperpage diagram and counted 33 floors in the middle which are about 120-140m

so if the design stays the same and the spire stays as long the total height of the Tower will be 500m to 520m after my calculation.

sadly it means, this project will not stay the tallest in seoul anymore, also then all hope lies on triple one for a megatall.

More than about its height I care about its design. I mean I don't really like that much how it looks from outside but I am really interested about this huge atrium Som designed for this one. i just hope with its height the design won't be altered, because such atrium's are something really rare in tall skyscrapers.

i kinda have to agree, the design is indeed unique. i also think the exterior design is amazing, it is one of the few buildings where a huge spire actually fits perfectly into the design, also its in a way modern and slim without overdoing it

I really don't know why the CTBUH set the standard for megatall at >600m. Even now, there are exceptionally few towers around the world that fit this definition, either in construction or the planning stages. I really think that >500m would've been a more useful height.
Anyway, I'm just glad to hear that this project isn't dead. Especially because the height drop means that the tower will be accompanied by two 50-floor buildings (I'd wager probably around 250m each), it won't stick out like quite the ridiculously sore thumb it would have otherwise. And I also am curious to see how that atrium design turns out. Can you imagine looking straight up and seeing a 40-floor hole in the middle of the building?
