That mall is quite astonishing - wonderful pictures!

I was surprised at how many of the store signs are in English.

Branding nearly always uses the Latin alphabet. It's not all that strange to be honest.

Anyway, it's a great mall. Lots to see, do, and eat!

According to Lotte those cracks are decoration, they're supposed to be there:

Quote:
A local newspaper earlier published an "exclusive report" about the cracks, raising the potential safety issues. However, a Lotte Engineering and Construction official told the Chosun Ilbo that the "crack" was an intentionally marking to "reenact the streets of Seoul in the 30's to the 80's."
Quote:
Cracks in the floor of the new Lotte World Tower are not a safety hazard but part of the building's decor, Lotte officials said Monday after a civic group raised complaints.

Frankly, that sounds like BS to me. Having heavily-polished concrete floors in one place and cracked ones in another, both as part of the décor, makes no sense, unless the cracks in the floor are relegated to one particular store. I'm suspicious, to say the least, and if Lotte is as concerned about public perception as they should be, they'd be wise to change this "flooring" to something less worry-provoking.

I see your point but have you been there? Every area has a different decor. Some places are tiled, others carpeted, and then there is the polished concrete in Avenuel as you mentioned. I wouldn't be surprised if this was just another one of the styles they chose.

yea, actually there is an area in the mall that is supposed to look like Seoul in the 70s or 80s (vintage style). Maybe its that part?

USELESS TOPIC. Only skyscraper haters spread rumor and they always TRY TO find another "weak point about LWT.

First skyscraper rumor which means financial crisis when skyscraper completed===>Airplane crash to LWT==>SINK HOLE RUMOR ==>TRAFFIC RUMOR==>and then now cracks? ==> what is next? UFO aliens kidnapping shopper in LWT? LOL

They amok like a crazy predators. This is make by greedy crappy journal ,who want to increased hits, with skyscrapers haters in SK.

LWT most perfect completed building in whole korea. like a JAPAN city building, cause I saw that with my naked eyes.
Korea building used to dirty finishing material and IMPERFECT INTERIOR. But LWT different. It was PERFECT ABSOLUTELY.

now, frankly speaking, they're not the pure 'skyscrapers haters' in this case but more likey they're trying to rock and shake only the Lotte World Tower, it's because it's Lotte, in a sense, it's based on political emotion and aspect, some of those tend to presume the linkage of Lotte and the former president LMB. Lotte World Tower looks to be the scapegoat of such conflict, endless headache in korea.

We just have to keep in mind that, much though many people complain now, they'll all be coming for the views and amenities when the whole thing is complete.

Very fantastic photos. The mall and tower looks so very opulent. It has something to do with functionality and aesthetics. Great Job!! Lotte Group & KPF for making this project into fruition.
