They don't spend money on Burj Dubai, they GET PAID to build it. And the problem with their many megatall proposals at home, is same as with US ones. Alot of regulations keep killing them.

I have to agree with Malec. Lotte supertall proposals go back for several years. None have resulted in an actual building. Note the Lotte World II Hotel in Seoul and The Lottes SuperTower in Seoul.

Yes, you are right Altin, but it was sort of meant tongue-in-check :-)

I really do hope they might eventually come round to perhaps building the Busan World Business Centre, I love that design...

At least there are some other large projects being built in Busan while this thing waits. A couple of 65 story ones, although still about half the size of Lotte. Then maybe it won't be so out of place. By the way, has anything with the name "Lotte" in it ever been built--anywhere? lol

LOTTE is very big in retail, hospitality and entertainement sector in Korea. They just have big ambitions but not enough political influence to get their project approved.

That's all ... or as I see it.

Lotte has a lot of high-mid-rises throughout Seoul and mostly in Busan. They aren't that notable however.

Actually, the Lotte Hotel in Seomyon was Pusan's tallest building for several years after it was built in 1996. It's still the tallest building in central Pusan, if you don't count the residential towers in the relatively suburban districts of the city.

I really like the design of it. Hopefully they will not alter it.

Seems like no one there, facing a major delay or on-hold with significant reason?
