The Busan Lotte Town Tower, also known as Busan Lotte World Tower is a 108-floor, 510.1 m (1,674 ft) supertall skyscraper on hold Busan, South Korea. The tower is planned on a site next to Nampo-dong station on Busan Subway Line 1 .[1][2]

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.[4] The design of the skyscraper is designed to resemble a standing ship, in reference to the city's harbour.[4] The tower's underground parking space will be able to house over 2,400 cars. The tower will contain retail outlets (floors 1-8), offices (9-58), residences (59-81), a luxury hotel (82-105), and public access floors (106-108) with an observation deck.
