Tallest Building in Asia: Seoul, South Korea


Designed by international architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox, Lotte Super Tower 123 will be the tallest building in Asia, and the world’s second tallest after the Burj Dubai. The super skyscraper will serve as Lotte’s new corporate headquarters and will be built by Lotte Construction, a subsidiary of the group.

Lotte Super Tower 123 will be located close to a key transportation hub near the Han River, efficiently bringing in commuters as well as tourists. Mixed-use development was a key element in the design, and the vertical city will include public transport connectors, retail and residential space, offices, a hotel, an observation deck, and other public areas.

The design team is aiming to achieve a silver LEED accreditation, a measure of the owner’s commitment to environmental responsibility. The 555-meter (1,821 feet), 123-story tower, is set for competition in 2014,
