Tallest in Korean peninsula.

JUST TEN METERS TO BE THE TALLEST IN KOREAN PENINSULA! That's fantastic!

- serviced apartments
- rooftop cafe
- rooftop restaurant
- rooftop art gallery
- observation deck

here is a detailed plan of the building:

thats Jamsil area in the 1970s. Far behind you see the lakes where Lotte World amusement park and Lotte World Tower will be built later. In the lower part of the pic you see jamsil stadium being constructed.




thats the lotte world amusement park and lotte hotel being constructed in the 1980s.
The empty space on the left side is where LWT will be built 30 years later.






jamsil area now

well, the pool is still at 355 m height, which is super high for a pool in my opinion (higher than any rooftop on the Korean peninsula)

and the highest hotel rooms will be around floor 101

To be fair, I do agree. However, I think we need to remember that cities are ever changing, and Lotte World Tower will provide new great angles of the city, and new iconic photography.

Things change, and great new stuff will come about

I like that image Humpty, that's a good way to show progress! Nice, There's a lot to go and this sucker is A BEAST!!!!

Imagine this in the USA? In the middle of Chicago? It would tower over Willis..

In New York, it would shadow over the Spear tip on 1 WTC, by a good 14 meters.

432 2nd tallest in the USA, (by the end of the Year), Just Towering over ANYTHING in New York

FOR FUN:

imagine this thing, just to the south of 432 park,, blocking all the billionaires views,, Just Fun

It will be amazing once finished, but it will be very lonely amongst the highrises

yes,, You are Incredibly right,, 1 Wtc would look minute, compared to (My Personal favorite, ICC, in HK) and it's not even in the top 5 anymore,, but I'm partial and Love ICC
This and ICC and SWF, hold they're ground to the roof, that's what I like! Rooftops over spire's!

The formwork for LWT is produced and engineered by Doka, a company in my small hometown in Austria (only 30,000 citizens)

They are one of the leading companies for formwork technology (also worked on Burj Khalifa and will work on Kingtom Tower )

Here is their new PR video about their contribution at LWT, explaining their formwork technology:


And here is a summary of what they do at LWT:
http://www.doka.com/web/newsroom/new...d-tower.en.php

I'm proud that a company from my small hometown is a major contributor at the LWT project, and its awesome that engineers and managers from Lotte have visited my hometown

Didn't know that they came from a small town in your country. They're the best with the formwork. Congrats
