BUSAN | Lotte World Tower II | 1,675 FT / 511 M | 110 FLOORS






釜山將興建107層摩天大樓 高過台北101
中廣新聞網
2005-01-06 07:30

南韓知名的樂天購物公司正式宣佈,將在釜山興建107層的「釜山第二樂天世界」大樓,這不僅是南韓最高的建築物,也將擠進世界著名的摩天大樓之列。(王長偉 漢城報導)南韓「朝鮮日報」報導中說,「釜山第二樂天世界」摩天大樓,在二○○○年十二月就已開工,但因圍繞影島大橋保留、拆除問題發生爭論,工程被迫暫停,目前,工程僅完成了百分之十三。最近,有關釜山影島大橋問題,已幾近解決,待這個月中旬防堵海水後,將馬上開始挖地基正式動工,並記者於2006年1月擴大工程,預定於2008年6月竣工。南韓在釜山興建一百零七層的「釜山第二樂天世界」的摩天大樓,是興建在釜山中區中央洞前釜山市廳的位置,面積一萬兩千三百四十七萬坪,地下六層,地面一百零七層,高四百九十四米,總面積為十七萬零五百八十七坪。這裏還將興建百貨店、折價店、酒店、免稅店、電影院、各種辦公室、會議中心等。樂天購物公司表示:在工程期間,每年將雇用五十萬人,竣工後將重新雇用五萬人。而且每年將繳納一百五十億韓元(約一千兩百萬美元)的地方稅,直接經濟效果值得期待。(中廣記者王長偉 漢城報導) -2005-0106-0200

Former news in English:
Design for World�s Tallest Building Proposed for South Korea
Minneapolis� Parker-Durrant presents schematic for offices, mixed development
Minneapolis architecture firm Parker Durrant International has completed the schematic design of the world�s tallest building, a 107-story, 1,620-foot-tall office tower and mixed-use/retail facility planned for Pusan, South Korea. Commissioned by the South Korean-based Lotte Corporation, the 5.7-million-square-foot, steel-and-glass Lotte World II office tower will adjoin a hotel/conference center, a multiplex cinema, an IMAX theater, a department store, and specialty retail stores and restaurants. Initial site work on the construction site has already begun. Completion is expected in 2008. �The faceted glass exterior of the tower recalls traditional Korean totemic figures called Jang Sueng,� says Principal-in-Charge Stephan Huh, FAIA. �In English, Jan Sueng means friendly guardian of the village. As Korea�s largest port city and the main gateway to Korea from the south, the design influence is especially befitting.�

Hey! It was designed by a Minneapolis firm! Why can't they design something like that for us in Minneapolis? I think it looks like a decent tower.

From a certain angle, it'll look extremely slender.

Amazing, these developements in Pusan. The Korean government must be really focussing on the city's developement... If you compare their current skyline to the one of the near future...

Well, let's hope we will see this Lotto tower rise soon...

It is a beautiful building I hope it get's built but by 2008 it will only be the fourth tallest building in the world at best.

I love the new design. The original version of the building was bulky and uninteresting.
