It's a pity there's no official news on this project. I wonder if it has progressed since it really looks good.

This just in from a credible news source:

http://www.chosun.com/national/news/...604160057.html

(in Korean)

In translation (roughly)- The tower's height has been increased to 510m. Tower to be completed in 2008, shopping mall and such to be completed in 2010. Design changed from a lighthouse shape to a ship shape.
They say also that the construction has been delayed a lot due to restoration efforts on the nearby bridge or something..

a building with ship shape doesn't resemble completely like a ship.
The al burj arab was made to look like a sailing boat. Does the burj al arab is a "vertical titanic" just because it has a ship shape?

koreans are known for devilish building speed....once they get started that is..

in fact, the burj dubai is being constructed by a korean company, samsung employed by emaar.

imagine how fast they would build in korea

How can they have this building completed in under 2 years if they haven't even started? They'd have to have a huge work force working roudn the clock to get this project finished if they plan to do so.

normally, when construction starts, the foundation takes alot of time, but assuming the tower has same or similar floorplates all the way, the construction speed rapidly increases

but then,...at 510m, i doubt itll get finished by 2008

Have a look at the render below (from the same direction as the construction photo). It's obvious that the current excavations must be for the lowrise theme park buildings because in the renders they are shown to be immediately abutting the existing road, with Lotte Tower between the lowrise buildings and the river. The new road shown in the renders looks as if the deck extends over the river anyway.
