AP reports sinkholes 500m from Lotte World Tower construction site in Seoul

Sinkholes have been noticed in close proximity to one of the world’s tallest towers under construction, the Associated Press reported on 25 July. The publication stated that two sinkholes had been discovered in a residential area of Seoul near to the KPF-designed Lotte World Tower construction site. One of the two sinkholes is said to measure 50cm wide by 20cm deep, located only 500m from the construction of the 555m-high structure.

The report also drew attention to the water levels at a nearby lake that have allegedly fallen from 5m to 4.3m. Lotte Moolsan, the construction company for the Lotte World Tower, is said to be pumping water into the lake in an effort to rectify the situation. The 123-storey tower is due to open in 2016 with a mixed-use program comprising retail, office, hotel space, and an observation deck at the top.
