The Busan Lotte Town Tower, also known as Busan Lotte World Tower is a 108-floor, 510.1 m (1,674 ft) supertall skyscraper under construction in Busan, South Korea. The tower is planned on a site next to Nampo-dong station on Busan Subway Line 1 and completion is expected in December 2019.
The tower is the centerpiece of the new Busan Lotte Town and construction is being carried in four phases. The first phase includes a department store, completed in 2009. The second phase, an addition to the department store, was completed in 2010. The third phase will be a market and a cinema, which was completed in 2014, and the last phase will include a luxury hotel, an observation deck, offices, and cultural facilities in a 107 story skyscraper. The design of the skyscraper is designed to resemble a standing ship, in reference to the city's harbour. The tower's underground parking space will be able to house over 2,400 cars.
In September 2013 the construction work was stopped due to the lack of funding. Rumors say that it will still be continued/finished in 2020.
