This tower was designed to be 555m tall with a slender crown on top. It won't look right until it's done.

Imagine how you'd look without your head--pretty stumpy, right?

I think that's right. It seems to rise vertically for the first 100m and then the angle turns in slightly too abruptly. The tapering isn't smooth enough at that section.

I think it's too wide at the base. Anyway, let's see! Not long to go now until T/O.

Anyway, if we watch a very tall building from the ground near its base, the building will appear much fatter than its real shape coz the base width strike our eyes in full size while the height of the building seems shortened

There are two different angle and impression depend on view point in ground.

One is main gate(ordinary n official point) whichmeans Lotte avenuel mall
It seem not look really tall. cause too fat mall block sight seeing of Tower's half below
Even LWT look shorter than IFC seoul of Yeuodo.(300m below tower though)

but other point is angle from lake
It BREATHTAKING View point. It seeing as total different shape
If we want to see reall LWT then we should see it from LAKE

The ridge beam of the Lotte World Tower will be installed in a month, marking the topping out of the building (excluding the crown)

Photos taken at 500m height.
The final top floors seem to be under construction now!
I hope they will release some pics with a higher resolution soon...

"Exciting" is one way to put it, but I think I'd be pretty freaked out :P.

Do we know how the interior work is going?
