You can almost imagine all the other smaller buildings in the city bowing down to it and worshiping it from all angles.

finally:
Today LWT officially reached 100 floors!






















the olympic stadium area, which will be re-developed soon. Also behind the stadium there will be the new 571m high hyundai global headquarter.











the big olympic park close tho LWT












LWT is the first building in South Korea to reach 100 floors!
Official height now: 413.6 m
Sadly, the aquarium and the cinema in the complex are still closed.

The observation platform (highest public floor) will be at 497.6 m, 84 m higher than where the pics were taken now:







It will be a quite breathtaking view, especially on the skywalk with the glass floor

Hmph, so the top floor will be at 498 meters? That would mean that the building would be at least 506 meters to the roof, am I right? It looks like I have to edit the drawing in my diagram a bit. I previously thought the roof height was 497 meters

Yes, i found in several sources that the top floor will be at 497.6 m height.
You can also calculate the height from this diagram: http://www.allseasonshomeimprovement...2520252021.jpg
(Top floor 512.33 m (basement to top) minus 14.73m basement = 497.6 m height above ground)

Assuming the observation floor is really at 497.6 m and the top of the crown is at ~556 m, then the architectural rooftop should be at around 512 m. (~15 m higher than the observation platform)
Here a small illustration of what i mean:




I have no idea if that is truly correct, just my personal estimate.

The Lotte Group is planning to finish the construction of the exterior of the 123 floor by the end of this year.
It will continue to complete the interior during the next year.
The building is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.

So we will defenitely see the building topped out and with a finished crown within this year!

Thanks for the information, I will correct my drawing in the next diagram update
