Are there any new brands to the Korean market going in the mall? IFC brought a number of new brands, so I had hopes Lotte would too.

Lotte's new skyscraper could open traffic hell


Lotte Group may open its new trophy skyscraper in southern Seoul earlier than expected during the summer. If it does, expect the neighboring area to descend into traffic hell.

The 123-floor tour, which will be erected next to the existing Lotte World theme park and retail complex in Jamsil, had already been questioned over potential safety problems. Lotte was also criticized over a series of accidents during construction that left two workers dead.

A panel of inspectors from the Seoul Metropolitan Government is now criticizing Lotte for failing to deliver on its promises to reduce the structure's influence on traffic.

When it gained approval for the new tower, Lotte ― a business giant in the food, retail and leisure industries ― said it will build an underground motorway and expand existing roads to ease congestion. Kim Nam-seok, Hanyang University professor and member of the Seoul city panel, said Lotte is showing no commitment to finish these roads before the tower's opening. [more]

Seoul really needs to sort out its traffic. The whole city is a congested mess. Lotte tower is not the problem. The issue seems to be the distaste of the middle and upper classes to use public transport despite Seoul's fantastic PT infrastructure.

When I was working in Seoul last year a number of my young male Korean colleagues would complain that they had to drive their girlfriends around central Seoul as they'd refuse to go on a date if they had to use PT. This kind of attitude is what needs to change. Not limiting development of Seoul's business districts.

Agreed, Sister Ray. I think the same could be said of Beijing, if to a lesser extent because the metro and bus systems aren't as comprehensive.

Absolutely agree with u!!
You know very well about korean people's life style and philosophy
Lotte tower is not the problem. PROBLEM is people.
JAMSIL area is most richest legion in whole korea. about 80% car is driving by ALONE(most of them so big compare wth TOKYO)! and korean's ordinary philosophy used with whether he own a CAR&HOUSE or not is standard for social class. so everybody want to buying a car.

If man have no car then he assumed to lower class. and disrespect by woman. Furthermore I know many AJUMMA mother housewife go to the market by driving. without fantastic seoul public system!

Though I have license I have no car and whole family too. But I never ever feeling uncomfortable without car. because one credit card i can go anywhere in seoul to satellite city(transfer bus to subway vice versa a fee is free). seoul government invest huge money for public system(free transfer, uneconomical bus line support, subway system etc)
Lotte tower is not the problem. problem is journal people

Agree speed slow. guess they have to installation call "tamper(i'm not sure exact letter) over 70floors to prevent vibration by wind.
so maybe speed drop..guess

Core went up one floor.
Height: 75 floors



Bad news for the early opening of the mall:

Quote:
The expert panel concluded that the partial opening poses safety risks not only to users but also residents in the area.

Seoul Government will ask the company to draw up safety measures for construction, transportation, groundwater lowering and other issues, an official said.

Lotte has to turn in plans and back-up materials in 21 areas to the Government before opening a department store, shopping mall and entertainment complex.
Quote:
The firm will also be required to come up with measures on other matters, including traffic flow, and taxi and bus stops near the complex to get permission.
whole article in english: http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/news...16_161060.html


Another article, about environmental issues:

Quote:
Lotte has commissioned the Korean Geotechnical Society and U.K. engineering firm Ove Arup to look into safety matters in connection to recent allegations that the construction of the 123-story tower has led to sudden environmental changes in the area.
Quote:
Over the next four months, Ove Arup, which participated in the building’s civil engineering design, will look into environmental changes including those on the surface level, while the Korean Geotechnical Society will investigate the cause of the water-level change,” an official at Lotte Group said.
full english article: http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?...14000885&ntn=0


My personal guess is, that an early opening will be finally allowed if those two things are clarified:
- Seokchon Lake losing water
- Traffic situation

Seokchon Lake investigation will take 4 months at least.
Traffic measures will take 1-1.5 years (i guess), as lotte didn't start yet with the underground bus terminal or the widening of highways around.

The official statement of the Government will be given in the next few days.
Let's wait and see.

So funny korean people who attack lotte tower.
Even today one man stand in front of tower shouting "don't open the tower it is dangerous for city!" and few days ago GREEN environment NGO&social citizen group demonstrate in front of lotte tower and press interviews. and korean journal spread this kind of comdey in the TV NEWS and panel discussion.
it is same phenomenon who spread 9/11 conspiracy theory on internet.
my country people afraid lotte tower like a folk who afraid about NEW WESTERN material.

Seokchon Lake is not natural lake but artificial lake. It have been supply water from han river by pump.
They spread rumor that tower will be collapse. Because Seokchon Lake is decreased and sink hole.

I'm so shy such a uneducated people is my same race.

Lotte try to persuade seoul government to allow open mall because already they got tremendous economical lost due to open delay(lotte persuade with in the case of Buj Kalipa and Hongkong's Skyscaper case: first open mall later tower completed) but

good video

let interpret something

tower designed can endure maximum wind speed 128m/sec
and first designed in korea histroy so called super structure system


If you ask how strong it is wind speed 128m/sec? then imagine catrina in USA was 90m/sec!
Taypoon GONPAS at 2010 was record 29m/sec in korea


7.5 magnitued earth quake endure. so lotte tower much stronger endurence than Burj kalipa in dubai


8 mega core endure building's weight


OUTRIGER installed every each 40floor term. it seems like a bamboo


"We all check mega core with ultra sonic machine. we didn't find any crack for damage lotte tower's saftey" said chairman of KOREA SKYSCRAPER INSTITUTE


"We even simulated with in the case of plane(i have no idea how big size it was though) crash on lotte tower.
Surprisingly even after plane collision on tower it was stand still. without any broken" said CHIEF designer james von klepere of KPF firm
