apparently they tested the light effects of the cladding!

The New York Times published an interesting article about Lotte World tower today.

They especially describe the difficulty for Lotte to gain people's trust in safety issues, even though there is nothing to worry about:

Quote:
“We are under such different criteria of safety that it makes news even when a person trips and hurts his leg,” said Lee Seul-ki, a Lotte spokeswoman.
“Much of our problem is because the country has never before built a building this tall.”
Here is the full article: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/15/re...ans-watch.html

Apparently no one likes baby steps anymore. You guys went from high-rises to "I'm Star Wars now" right smack in the middle of an otherwise moderate urban locale. Hope it works out for you, personally I would have started with Bison first.

IS SAMSUNG will be get YONGSAN IBD project again?

Early of this week HDC HOTEL SHILA get business right for DUTYFREE in yongsan.(another one is HANWAH of 63 building of YEIUDO)
Shila's CEO 이부진 LEE BU JIN is a daughter of Mr LEE gun hee CEO OF SAMSUNG.
She saying that "we will make this yongsan duty free world largest inner city duty free area"

Meanwhile This shila's duty free allocated area neighborhood of YONGSAN IBD project land.
at the moment this land deserted since project dismiss and now under legal battle.

But KORAIL try to sold out this yongsan land to civil.
"HOTEL shila try to make largest duty free in yongsan. If so this land will be need for.....of course this land is so huge so shila alone impossible but what if group try then it is possible!" saying KORAIL concern.

8 years ago SAMSUNG GET YONGSAN IBD land as $ 8 billions.
but when global financial crisis SAMSUNG give up this project.

But again SMASUNG family company try to make huge DUTY FREE project in yongsan.
KORAIL want to sould out this land. Now korea real estate market is good.
SAMSUNG will be make amazing YONGSAN SUPERTALL?

Meanwhile HYUNDAI VICTORY IN gangnam and get the land and is goign to built 571m HEAD OFFICE. At that time Mr Lee jae yong 이재용 the son of LEE GUN HEE CEO of SAMSUNG defeat to HYUNDAI.
YONGSAN is last land for to built supertall in seoul. fortunately his yonger sister get duty free right from korea government.
HYUNDAI can built 571m in seoul why not SAMSUNG? They can to built taller than HYUNDAI 571M in YONGSAN.

If i am CEO of SAMSUNG then i would buying yongsan land and to built 1km tower in there! Go samsung Let beat hyundai 571m
Really interesting ongoing........

Fees like this tower resemble Taipei 101, surrounded by short buildings


But this makes the tower feel enormous and tall!

No, I think the red steel structure reaches to about 107 floors and the concrete is still at around 103. FYI, There will be 123 floors, plus a crown/spire of over 50 meters.

I hate the fact that I left Korea. Now I can't see the tower lit up at night with the LEDS in Seoul.
