I don't know for the Incheon Towers, but they aren't high as 601 meters, but only about 487 meters. If the Seoullite will be built, it will be the second tallest building in the world, after Burj Khalifa. But be satisfied for the Lotte World Tower now

Also, am I alone in thinking the tower looks a lot more square in photos than in renders?

Looking at the renders more thoroughly, the squareness is there too, but it is hard to notice the square base without specifically looking for it. I wonder if the effect will be as apparent in real life, when you look up at the tower and not down at it, as the renders tend to feature an aerial view.

Exactly, tower much more "square shape than render". I'm guessed it becaused due to "optical illusion". For example, Render was drawing "far away perspective from tower" but photo was taken very near distance or directly under tower angles. Therefore it look seem like a much more "square than renders".
Just my opinions.

Also, the curved corners really accentuate the building- they don't make it seem either square or circular, but rather a nice balance of both.
Agree this tower have a very "unique curved and cladding". Elegance shape.

In my opinions, these stickers will be removed when it completed.
If you see carefully shoppingmall windows(above SAM_9421), then you would see same "stickers" in schoppingmall windows"

I'm guess it it used for "guide papers" which means the otherside stickers it was writing(display) some "numbers or instruction for interior workers"
I'm not sure just my poor guessed.

I was in Seoul recently. Can see the tower from Ttukseom Resort now. It will look good from that perspective when completed.

You won't see much difference, even after 1 year. It was not designed to dazzle. No offence, developers, but from an architect's point of view, it's just another mediocre tall tower, without any evident idea conveyed.
It's a pity 1WTC has an idea though: like a mockery of victims, and its design symbolizes that the true villain has gotten away with this fraud.

It seems so, although aside from a fetishization of 1WTC or New York or the U.S., I don't know what a guy from Dubai has in this fight.

As for the Lotte tower, the seam down the side of it represents a demarcation of the old center of Seoul, and the glass is intended to pay homage to Joseon-era ceramics, although I'll concede I'm not seeing too much of the latter influence. Besides, it's totally unavoidable that this tower should be less evocative than 1WTC. This tower stands for the dreams and achievements of the founder of the Lotte chaebol; 1WTC is supposed to stand for...well, a whole lot more.

Well, what a guy from Manch has either? I have serious arguments, you got some fairy guesswork.
RTFM (Read the full manual). You're so wrong about fetishization...
The symbolism you're talking about just seems strange. And I doubt it could possibly have any connection to this tower.

Anyway...
I noticed that the Lotte World Tower will be the tallest building in a capital city.
Now the tallest buildings is in Taipei, Taiwan, but, with 555 m. Lotte will be far higher, becoming the tallest tower in a capital city ever!

He is free to say his opinions, just like you do. He doesn't have to agree with you and others so he can be able to participate in this thread.

It's always good to have some contrast in opinions and views. It would be dull to see 100% of comments praise how this tower is beautiful. Come on, and let's be honest, this is not and is never going to be the best ever built skyscraper (and by a long shot).

Yes, I do think that this supertall is going to be of a great success, but let's not exaggerate a lot and let's keep our feet in the ground.
