Well I guess the good news from that vote count listed above is that there will be lots of room to accommodate the foreign tourists that want to visit the LWT!

very good article about LWT and the early opening before Chuseok Holidays (before September 8):

http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/...px?aid=2993198

Quote:
But Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon said in an interview with the JoongAng Ilbo in July that “experts concluded that there is no structural problem related to sink holes. The tower won’t tilt or collapse.”
Quote:
A Seoul city official said this month that the issue was actually traffic-related. “The final point of discussion is traffic-related - regarding the plan to construct parts of Olympic-daero as an underground tunnel - and not a safety concern
So the main reason for not allowing the early opening is the traffic situation.

Quote:
Shop owners said they could not overstate the importance of sales during Chuseok, which falls on Sept. 8. They said that if the mall gets approval from the city, they would do anything possible to open their shops.
Until August 18 Lotte has to re-apply for an early opening, in order to get approval before the Chuseok holidays



On the other side, negative news about LWT made it's way into Europe. A newspaper in Poland released this article about LWT and sinkholes around it:
http://tech.wp.pl/kat,1009793,title,...?ticaid=1133a1

The article says that the sinkholes are worrying people in Seoul, even though they are not related to the tower. And they say that Seoul government wants to be rather too strict than giving a chance for another tragedy like the Sewol ferry sinking. So they just exaggerate safety measures for a while.
(for those wondering why i understand the article: i speak german, english, polish fluently and intermediate korean)

the relation between the ship and the building is simple: safety regulations being constantly ignored in Korea by companies to maximize profit, and the government not being able to provide functioning safety regulations. The ship sinking also had a huge impact on local politics, its still a big deal.

Now the government feels pressured to implement stricter safety rules to prevent future catastrophes. Unfortunately LWT is being used here by the media to create fear. Typically for Korea, the issues about LWT are blown out of proportion and completely irrational.

Is there a history of building collapses in South Korea (apart from that mall many years ago)?

I'm surprised that there is so much opposition to the tower. Looking at Seoul it's basically a highrise city. Not that high. But high.

...And yes of course people will flock to the mall once it opens and in a few years they'll pretend that they were one of the few people who wasn't against it to begin with.

in 1995, 29th of june.. department store collapsed so over 500 people dead.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sampoon...Store_collapse

anyway, seoul dont have many supertall.. but we have many buildings that have gross area over 150,000 square meter( same as ordinary 200~300m high rise or supertall)

we just started build supertalls.

Come on cestlavie, it's 20 years later,, I'm sure thing's have changed since 1995 (in Seoul),, everything is different,
Everybody is watching Everything,, I'm sure they don't need a tragedy like 1995. Seoul is set to Host the Olympics.. I'm quite sure they're not going to let the World down.. And even the Olympics (Pyeongchang) are some 100 Kilometer's from Seoul,, I Guarantee they will be focusing on downtown Seoul,, for the Picture's and the New's feed they feed the World.
Pretty positive Seoul Lotte Tower will be the center of every newsfeed.
