North Korean spies are watching you do what? With South Korea per capita like 20 times the North, perhaps the 'democratic' 'peoples' 'republic' of Korea could learn about 'democratic' (as in South Korea). advanced electronics like Samsung LG etc. Another thing I have been seeing is a Lotte Tower in Vietnam, is this proposal also?

And yes, I was ROTFLMAO about the translator! It is pure joy!!!!!!

The following was in todays newspaper.
Quote:
By Kim Tong-hyung
Staff Reporter

Policymakers have all but approved a controversial plan by Lotte Group to build a 112-story building in southeastern Seoul, despite concerns that the trophy skyscraper would be too close to a military airbase.

The decision was made after a meeting between ministers and business leaders in Cheong Wa Dae Thursday and rewards 14 years of persistence by Lotte chairman Shin Kyuk-ho, who has zealously pursued becoming the owner of the country’s tallest building since first approached with the idea in 1994.

President Lee Myung-bak has been supportive of Lotte’s plans since his days as Seoul Mayor. However, the Air Force and Defense Ministry blocked construction, claiming that the 555-meter tall building could pose a serious safety threat to military aircraft flying in and out of Seoul Airport in Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province, due to its close location to flight paths.

However, with Lee calling the shots from the Blue House, military authorities are now saying they could be more flexible.

``There have been requests from the business sector to allow the building of the `Second Lotte World,’’’ said Cheong Wa Dae spokesman Lee Dong-gwan.

``We are considering those demands and a conclusion will be reached at the year’s end,’’ he said.

A Defense Ministry spokesman said the ministry is considering ways to prevent the new building from becoming a threat to ``national security and air safety,’’ which may include adjusting the direction of the airport runway. Relocation of the airport, however, would not be considered.

``We are considering every possibility in regard of the building’s effect to the airport and other military facilities, but nothing has been decided yet,’’ said Won Tae-jae, a ministry spokesman.

``If a conclusion is reached that the runway of the airport should be rebuilt, Lotte should be ready to pay for it as that is not going to come from our budget,’’ he said.

Military officials had previously demanded Lotte reduce the height of the building to a level below 200 meters. Pilots using the Seoul Airport are required to keep an altitude of at least 203 meters on instrumental flights, or when they control their planes solely relying on data from instruments due to clouds and other obstacles limiting visibility in the cockpit.

So in an absolute worst-case scenario, military officials claim, a pilot could crash right into the middle of Lotte’s 500-meter plus building on a cloudy day. They also pointed out that planes need to descend to a level of about 280 meters above the new building’s site in order to land at the Airport.

However, Lotte officials insisted the worries are exaggerated, saying the new building’s location is outside of the flight safety zone reserved by current law.

Now with military authorities changing their language, singing along with the Lee government’s drive for deregulation, Lotte is likely to have its dream building, although the company would be reluctant to fully finance the rebuilding of Seoul Airport’s runway.

The 112-story building is part of Lotte’s 1 trillion won project to construct its new amusement park, right next to the current Lotte World, in a 87,400-square-meters site it bought in 1988.

Shin is clearly obsessed with size, but a 112-story building doesn’t’ sound so cool 14 years later. There are already plans for a 160-story, 620-meter building in Yongsan, downtown Seoul, while another 130-story building in Sangamdong is about to enter construction, meaning that the new Lotte building would never be called the country’s tallest, a title that Shin had been religiously attached to.

There are also worries that Lotte’s new building could also cause already-expensive house prices in Jamsil to skyrocket, making the area a target for speculation.

I like the look of the tower and hope that it get built. It looks like an updated version of Chicago's John Hancock Center.

There was a new design competition for the Lotte super tower over the summer with four new designs. The SOM design is no longer valid - it is too expensive to build for the Lotte construction company. Lotte CM specializes in the typical concrete structures not what SOM designed.
They are waiting for the Chairman to decide on a design. Maybe in November.

I like it. A new design, strange, but in my opinion it's great for Seoul.

Construction of Second Lotte World Skyscraper Likely

The South Korean government is expected to allow the construction of a 555-meter-tall skyscraper near a key air base on the outskirts of Seoul, Yonhap News reported Saturday quoting an official source.

The defense ministry source said on condition of anonymity that the prime minister is looking into administrative aspects of allowing construction to begin on the second Lotte World complex in Jamsil, southeastern Seoul.

The site is located just 5.7 kilometers away from the Seongnam air base, a key Air Force installation integral to the defense of the capital city. It is also used by the South Korean president and other foreign dignitaries because special flights would disrupt operations at commercial airports.

It was, ironically, the Prime Minister's office under the previous Roh Moo-hyun administration that first ruled against the construction of the 112-story structure that Lotte claims will become one of Seoul's landmark towers. At that time, decision makers sided with the Air Force and said Lotte could only build the tower if it was under 203 meters, according to Yonhap.

The height restriction was based on the threat of a possible collision with planes landing or taking off from the Seongnam air base.

"Experts are looking at four alternatives that would allow construction to begin once the decision is made as early as next year," the official was quoted as saying.

However, he added that even if approval is granted, a lot of follow-up work would still need to be done.

Of the four alternatives, government insiders said a move to alter the direction of a runway at the air base by between three and 10 degrees, which would alleviate concerns of a collision though it would be costly and could trigger protests from residents near the military facility.

Other plans include discontinuing use of the air field altogether or getting Lotte to build a shorter tower. The third and fourth options are unlikely at present.

The Air Force had initially opposed construction of the tower but recently changed its stance on the issue.

The government is also looking at the project more favorably, as the incumbent Lee Myung-bak administration hopes to use it to bolster the nation's construction sector, which accounts for roughly 18 percent of the country's gross domestic product.

Still ambiguous whether this tower will be built or not.
