This must be one of the biggest towers in the whole world as far as floor area is concerned

I think its the 5th tallest now but look at the wideth of it about a third of the way up

Super HUGE

New renders of the huge redevelopment project of the old apartments in front of LWT!
Here is what it looks like now:





No idea when the project will finally start, i couldn't find any timeline

Finally, good designs for Redevelopment Projects. The cladding looks really good. This project is still quite a bit down from what I understand. Prices for the existing buildings are skyrocketing (in anticipation of reconstruction), but nothing has truly been acted yet. Might still be a few years down the road (by the time the design will revert to shitty commieblocks)

kind of wish there would be many different designs for buildings/residences around that area cuz currently Seoul is just wayyy too congested with repetitive commieblocks and doesn't stand out as much. We need more design-oriented 350m+towers around this building

I photoshopped an existing pic how i imagine LWT will look like once completely finished.

The original, unedited pic is here:

It almost seems like if LWT was closer.. it would be taller than the communications tower on top of that small mountain.

I believe it is. LWT is 555m, and Namsan Tower is 237m, while Namsan itself is 262m. 237+262=499m; 499m<555m. It's quite impressive, and further goes to show just how proportionately enormous Lotte World Tower is in the city.

Two famous Russian & Ukrainian free climbers secretly went atop LWT.
They also made a video, which will be released soon.
