Korea has a horrible track record in terms of proposing supertalls. I won't believe it until it's built.

Right. 5237 concrete mixer truck. nonstop pour for 34hours . Now waiting for 'Dream Hub Project'

Construction of Lotte Super Tower to begin Saturday

JUNE 02, 2011 05:08
Construction of the second Lotte World complex, or Lotte Super Tower, will begin Saturday with an aim of completion by late 2015, the builder of one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers said Wednesday.

Lotte Corp. CEO Lee Won-woo told reporters at Lotte Hotel in Seoul that concrete consolidation work for the skyscraper will begin Saturday and continue through Sunday.

A huge amount of concrete enough to build 450 apartment units each covering 132 square meters will be poured into the site for 32 hours.

More than 5,300 concrete mixer trucks will be mobilized to deliver the cement. If the trucks are put in a line from the construction site in Seoul`s Jamsil district, they would reach Osan, Gyeonggi Province.

In addition, 4,000 tons of iron bars each 51 meters in diameter and 50 percent thicker than ordinary ones will be used. The massive volume of building materials is necessary to bear the weight of the 740,000-ton skyscraper.

The size of the concrete foundation is also enormous, reaching 80 percent of a soccer field. It measures 72 meters in both width and length and its height is equivalent to that of a two-story building.

The builder said, “Its scale is the world’s fourth largest after China’s Shanghai Tower, Hongkong’s ICC and China’s Shanghai World Financial Center.”

Lotte Corp. will also utilize cutting-edge homegrown construction technologies and methods, including wind and earthquake resistant designs, a technique to build one story every three days, and a high-strength concrete pumping technology that can shoot concrete up 500 meters above ground.

Ground construction for the skyscraper will begin next year after underground construction is completed by year’s end.

^It's not an unprecedented rate. Burj Khalifa was built at one floor every 3 days.

Slightly disappointed that construction wont reach ground level until the end of the year though.

It looks like the chickens have finally come home to roost. Korean construction companies have been building supertalls all over the world, from KL to Dubai. But I thought there was some sort of military restriction from building so tall in Seoul. It's also good to see another international capital pierce the supertall level with a sharp looking pinnacle.

I completely agree with you. That country deserves a supertall and the design of this one is very good

I'm agree with you. Maybe take the time for ground level construction. Because this Tower constructed not only Tower but also another 7 building wich like shopping mall.

No offense
IMO, Seoul tower different from Chow Tai Fook Center in Guangzhou. Actually, there is big problem with seoul's some project. example dream hub, seoul's lite ect.
But this project is no doubt. Because land owner and construction company and financial is same.

seoul lotte tower spent almost 20 years for resolve millitary restriction.

Already lotte pay $ 1 billion for moving airforce airstrip and
$ 6 billion for traffic complex system of around construction site.

I'm just not confident in Seoul's ability to build anything given their record with supertalls. For all i know this could end up like the Pingan international Finance Center.
