Great news. I expect it to be bloody hectic there tomorrow with the aquarium and cinema being free for three days. Good luck to them.

Good progress these days with the cladding and steel framework construction.

unluckily its not my apartment, i just rented the place for 10 days. but still the price was quite low. The rooftop (helipad) was awesome, LWT and the sunrises and sunsets were amazing there

I didn't see the movie yet, but i think people keep forgetting that its a hollywood movie, not a tourism video. What did they expect? The Avengers taking a tour around Bukcheon hanok village and being impressed by the rich cultural heritage of Korea, while evil powers try to destroy Gyeongbokgung palace?

Anyway, Star Trek 3 is confirmed to be shot in Seoul. Maybe there we can see LWT completed

Lotte World Tower is very fat. It's 555m high, but it doesn't seem slim. Cause it's 'HUGE'.

It seems like a nuclear submarine when I saw LWT in closed.
also basement surrounded by avenuel mall so nobody estimate how this tower huge.
Only a bit away distance we can understand how LWT big one.
such like a Sun(in solar system). In front of sun we can not estimate it size at all. only distance possible, same case.

Yes. LWT have amazing LED lighting show system from beginning design.
plz look carefully cladding line. then you can see white line cover all tower.
inside that LED lighting prepare LED show.
Lotte is going to make christmass tree tower itself. or make a wrinting letter on the surface tower.
So you can read world largest letter show

did u ever saw effiel tower's led show? forgot it LWT is going to show what is LED show

Last week I was at Gwanak mountain and I took this panorama of Seoul!
You can clearly see LWT on the right side

Actually the weather was quite misty and the pics turned out really grey, so it took some work in photoshop to make most parts of the city more visible.

here's a larger version of the pic:

I took a lot of pics during my Korea trip (2 weeks ago), here are some of them:





LWT during sunrise, as seen from the rooftop of the apartment building where I stayed.




LWT in the background. The tower on the left side is the Financial Center at Yeoksam station




The towers on the right are the Tower Palace apartments. The most expensive apartments in all of Korea. Those guys on the helipad are my friends




LWT and me




Samsung Electronics headquarter at Gangnam station, as seen from our rooftop.



LWT seen from Gwanak mountain



LWT seen from Jamsil Han-river park










My friend flying a kite. LWT in the background.






My friend again flying a kite, this time on our rooftop




The crossroads at Gangnam station around 3 am


In total we stayed 10 days in Korea. Can't wait to go back again and take more pics

Beautiful sunset shots. It would be good to see you revisit that first shot when the tower is finished.

Humptyydumpty, any idea what those cranes in the picture of you looking east to LWT are for? I don't remember seeing any posts about things going up in Gangnam, other than the Parnas Hotel (which I'm thinking is one of the three).

Amazing photos you've been posting lately, btw; makes me want to go back soooooo badly!

actually Tower Palace Apartments are NOT the most expensive apartments in Seoul. It's been a while since they've been out-priced. Hell even Galeria Foret Seoul Forest is 10 times more expensive. I know because my gomo or aunt lives in Tower Palace Tower G
