Today KEPCO announced to sell its old headqarter via open public bidding within this year.
Full english article: http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/n...t-open-bidding

Quote:
The plot is one of the most expensive and coveted real estate properties, measures 79,342 square meters, and sits on the southern part of the capital that can be turned into a composite business center. Hyundai Motor has officially expressed intent to buy the land to build a new corporate headquarters added with a hotel, a convention center and an automobile theme park.

China's property developer Greenland Group and U.S. casino operator Las Vegas Sands Corp. are also said to have shown interest.

The Seoul city government plans to use part of the land to build a sports-culture-entertainment complex.
The property is one of the most expensive ones in Seoul, worth around $ 3.8 billion.

Hyunday wants to build its new supertall HQ there. Nevertheless, the highest bidder will get the property.
lets hope hyunday has a lot of cash

From the article HumptyDumpty posted:

Quote:
"The Korea Electric Power Corp. (KEPCO) is scheduled to relocate its headquarters to Naju, 355 kilometers southwest of Seoul, in November, a part of a government plan for balanced development of the country by relocating public firms to rural areas."
Where the hell is Naju?

Why would you move a major company like KEPCO to the middle of nowhere?

I understand Korea is too Seoul-centric in its development but surely the company will lose its top talent by relocating to South-Nowheresville in Jeollado? If I were an exec for this company there's no way I'd leave Seoul to go and live in some little pear farming hamlet. I can't see this as being a good move. Anyone with any valuable skills will just find a new job and the company will suffer.

ABSOLUTELY 1000000% AGREE WITH YOU.
Not only KEPCO but also about 100 major national institute move out to rural town.
Even ALREADY most KOREA NATIONAL MINSTER move out to sejong city.(they spent over 10 billions USD for built this city)
What a worst Most public officer every day go to work sejong city(one way 2 hours take some officer commit suicide)
They called it is a part of a government plan for balanced development of the country by relocating public firms to rural areas.
But that is terrible mistake

I heard too many public officer and engineer retired from those ministry and institute.
terrible terrible disaster for seoul and korea

It's just a tricky thing to do, decentralization. Sejong is so obviously the wrong way to do it--building a whole new city next to a perfectly good one, Daejeon; how stupid--but why put a new HQ in Naju, with Gwangju next door? It may not be Seoul, but it's still got more going on than a place of Naju's size. I don't understand this tendency to put new projects right next to big cities, instead of in them. Very strange.

Ugh, I hope they don't do that kind of building; so tacky. Seoul deserves more tasteful (and original--isn't there something like this in Baku?) designs than that.
