South Korea's Lotte Group will unveil the world's third highest observation deck next week ahead of a grand opening ceremony for a new 123-story shopping and living tower complex.
The enclosed deck on top of the Lotte World Tower will be open to the public on March 23. Lotte said it would be the world's third tallest after Shanghai Tower and Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Lotte's deck called "Seoul Sky" is 500 meters off the ground and comprised of multiple facilities from the 117th floor to house about 900 people per hour at the same time. The bottom of the 118th floor is glass.
Lotte will hold a vertical international marathon race for the first time in South Korea to mark the opening of the 555-meter-tall tower which was built as a new high-rise landmark representing South Korea's economic prosperity.
