You right
Seoul's vacancy is not serious problem. It is normal rate compare with other global city rate

One thing's for sure, they've definitely spiced up Yeoeuido's skyline.

I'm agree with you

Is the plan still to get the military out of 이태원 (Itaewon)? 미국군대는 세정시에 갈거랬어요? 미국군대은 서울 중앙에서 있기때문에 문제가 많아요. 그리고 미군은 없으면 이태원 지가는 비싸요.. The army base causes a lot of problems in Seoul. And it's sitting on prime undeveloped real estate in the city centre. If it gets the army base out then the Itaewon development will more than make up for the cost of building Sejongsi

Yes, absolutely!

So, it's gone now? To be replaced with that nice new complex Inno posted? Well, that's some great news. That place was a dump and the vendors there were, quite frankly, awful to deal with.

This area (Yongsan Electronics Markets) is always touted as "Seoul's Akihabara". It really needs to up its game to live up to that title. Hopefully the new complex will help it do just that.

I noticed last time I was there, there were large empty lots between the Terminal Complex and Yongsan Station Complex. Does anybody know what is planned for these vacant sites?

Keep the updates coming guys

I've been there last week and I was surprised by the demolition works (not yet) on 터미널전자상가 building.

But the area need a major redevelopment. Not only in IBD area. The computers, camera and other electronics need a better places and looks in the future more like Akihabara.

in Asan, close to Seoul, a residential building under construction tilted to the side, almost collapsing. No one was hurt.

As you can see on the building next to it, the whole structure stands on just a few columns.
Appearently they made the columns too weak and it collapsed, but i'm not sure what the exact reason is.

Korean source: https://twitter.com/mbcnews/status/465825199791673345
English source: http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20140512001282

Its not really a big Seoul-project, so i'm not sure if this fits in this thread, but i still found it interesting and wanted to share.
Crazy things can happen even to small projects

Let's just say it's a good thing that happened now and not when people were already moved in and living there. I always wonder how things like that happen; you'd think the company in charge of designing such a structure would overbuild and not underbuild, just to be safe. I think that all the Koreans who said, after the Sewol tragedy, that the older generation (particularly older business leaders) isn't doing its part to keep Korean society safe and happy are right.

korean 'quickly' 'roughly' culture and 'safety frigidity' are problem...
older generation need fast development(becasue our country was one of most poor country in the world), so they did everything very quickly so we could developed..but it bring roughly and safey frigidiy also.
this is still remain...
