Where did anyone mention underground parking? did i miss something?

I think the issue is the construction of a bypass around LWT, so that a big part of the traffic won't have to go through residential area.

This is from the article that inno posted before, the red line is the bypass/expressway expansion:




Seoul Government and Jamsil residents are afraid that there will be too much traffic, so they push lotte to pay for expansions of highways and additional bypasses.

Also lotte will build an underground bus terminal next to LWT.

Yesterday's article in the Wall Street Journal about LWT and the struggle between Lotte and Seoul Government:

Quote:
Lotte says the extra requirements have added around 10% to the total cost of the $3.5 billion project, while around $90 million in revenue is lost for each month the retail complex remains closed. Lotte President Hwang Kag-gyu says the company has no greater concern than safety, but that some of the city's requirements are excessive.

"They're asking for 200%, 300% more safety and other measures than similar developments in other countries," Mr. Hwang said in an interview.

They're still working on the double-height floor - construction seems to have slowed down a lot!

They are preparing to build the second outrigger around the core, which will be also the end of the mega columns. After that it will be only steel columns up to the top:



This outrigger will basically hold the whole building together, that's why it takes a bit longer

But the core is now rising a bit faster, one floor every 5-6 days.

Yes mixed use: Office, Hotel, Mall, Healthcare Center, Restaurants, Observation Platform, Serviced Apartments, etc.

The hotel in Lotte World Tower will be a super-luxurious 7 star hotel (!), while the other hotel is mostly just for tourists visiting the amusement park next to it. Very different price class and target group.

The fabric on the top there has gotten so dirty since it first started haha, you can barely make out the 123 anymore.

I was thinking the same thing.

The pic above seems to show the outrigger truss double floor is complete, so it should start to rise faster now.

No, the outrigger truss didn't even start. The double floor you see in the pics is just a mechanical floor. The outrigger starts from floor 72 to 75 (3 floors). The steel framework is now at floor 70.

Below i painted the outrigger into a picture taken today (sorry, i accidently wrote floor 76 instead of 75):




And here you have the official diagram, which i posted already if you scroll up a bit




BTW: The core went up one floor today and the right tower crane moved up as well
