I'm surprised parts of the Han River have frozen over, it's been wayyy too warm this winter I thought. Tomorrow is forecast to reach 10C! Spring has already arrived it seems.

Not much change since over a week.
But they built a huge platform on the top of the external elevator tower. Is that the end of the elevator?

source: http://poison777.tistory.com/5315



NEWS: LWT is expected to reach 100 floors between March 14-17]! Now we are at 97 Floors.
This means that appearently the core will rise extremely slowly now, 1.5 months for 3 floors.

I guess they will focus now on the hotel floors and the steel frame work, and continue with the core when the floors are closer to the top of the core.

Also Lotte will soon start with the pre-sale of the officetel apartments in the tower. Customers are expected to be rich Chinese or other foreign VIPs. Any SSC-forumers who are interested?

here the full article in korean: http://www.fnnews.com/news/201501271437175147

I'd love to know what the proposed officetels will look like. Any renders or plans?

when this tower topped out, I guess North Korean will be able to see it as well since it can be seen from a distance of around 84km and Kaesong is only 66km away, unless there are taller mountains in between.

Korea is full of 300 to 500m-range mountains, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be able to see it from Uijeongbu, so as to North Korea, I'm fairly positive it's impossible.

The tower is about 50km away from the nearest border to North Korea, and in between there are many mountains and hills (including Namsan tower). There is no way anyone can see that in NK unfortunately.

I agree that it is a fine design. Minimalist, elegant, modern ... it soars!

Personally, I prefer more slender buildings, and this one is just a wee bit too bulky for my tastes. However, the cladding looks excellent and I love the shorter complimentary buildings surrounding it.

It doesn't look that tall from the pictures, but the view from Humpty's 96th floor really puts it in perspective.

I don't know, it fairly well towers over everything else in the city, including Namsan and its observation tower, which I'm pretty sure this will be taller than when it's topped out, a moment I'm very much so looking forward to. Shame to hear it's going to be going so slowly now, but I suppose that's life above 400m.

All pictures were taken by me yesterday(January 27th in 2015).
Yesterday was cold and I didn't have much time to take picture here.
So the pictures are not that good in quality.
But I hope you enjoy it.
