Lotte World Tower is a 123-floor, 554.5-metre (1,819 ft) supertall skyscraper that finished external construction on March 17, 2016. The building’s final 123rd floor was topped out on December 22, 2015. It is currently the 5th tallest building in the world.
After 13 years of planning and site preparation, the tower gained final approval to start construction by the government in November 2010 and the first groundbreaking activities of piling and frame assembly were observed at the construction site in March 2011.
The conceptual design calls for a slender cone with convex, gently curved sides. An exterior of pale-coloured glass draws inspiration from Korean ceramics and features accents of metal filigree. Located near the Han River, the tower will contain retail outlets (floors 1-12), offices (14-38), residences (42-71), a luxury hotel (76-101), private office (105-114), and public access floors (117-123) with an observation deck.
