Bit older pics, but still nice:










last pic, taken from Inwangsan mountain (인왕산):
View of central Seoul, with Namsan Tower on the right and Gyeongbokgung palace on the left.
In the background, quite centrally, there is Lotte World Tower.

Distance from the photographer to LWT: 14 km in straigt line

Honestly, I'm not sure which is more impressive in that last picture--LWT sheer visibility or Jongno's ever-growing density. Both are very good!

Even though the project was very controversial from the beginning (like all projects of this size), people finally start to recognize the beauty of it.
This building will be Seoul's proud landmark for generations to come

SkyscraperPage has the roof height at ~ 485 meters. The diagram posted on this page above shows a difference of close to 30 meters. Just wondering which measurement/diagram is more accurate.

I guess some ppl didnt like this project at first coz they disliked wealthy cheabols

Well, our human brains tend to be prone to jealousy for other people' money coz money can make fun but actually big money ( enough to build such a big tower) is not all about fun, it is also a graet responsiblity.

While the owners/investors of ltw may worry shxtless a bout the return of investment average citizens of the city like inno or any visitor with few bucks for a drink in a ltw skybar could enjoy spectacular views without much worrying about the "return of investment". Thats fun too
