Jongmyo park has recently been renovated, or part of it at least. Here's the finished product.

I agree. Eastern Jongno might have at least as many cultural / historical sites as Central Jongno :
Central has : Gwangwhamun, Gyeongbokgung and Deoksugung
Eastern has : Changdeokgung, Changgyeonggung, Jongmyo, and Namsangol Traditional Village

But it's just not tourist friendly enough. Tourists mostly stay between Sejong avenue to the west, and Insadong/Myeongdong to the East. Euljiro and Jongno-dongs are full of old run-dozn traditional hardware and home improvement shops. The new DDP might have pushed tourists east of Myeongdong a bit, but most still take the subway and skip over this area. Cheonggyecheon itself is not enough to link Dongdaemun and Central Jongno for most. Luckily, with this redevelopment and others (Seun Shopping District), a bunch of projects in Euljiro, Myeongdong growing to the East, this might change eventually.

Also, the Jongmyo Park was known as a place where old ladies were prostituting for only 10 000 wons or so, so the new park might change that (I haven't been since it was renovated, so I don't really know...)

yeah, you'v got the point,
I can guess that the not-tourist-friendliness of eastern jongro seems to be link with the overall obsoleteness of the area,
actually the eastern jongro area had been formed as commercial area after war for mostly raw materials and machine tools than consumer's goods, like Seun Sanga, Bangsan market, Euljiro furniture shops, Chungmuro motorbike shops, Dongdaemun cloth and textile markets (Pyeonghwa, Gwangjang, etc), Cheonggyecheon machinery shops and so on,
and currently all such commercial areas look visually obsolete and still remain as not-tourist-attracting places except for such a few markets as Dongdaemun, Gwnagjang market etc.

and therefore, in the context of it, the redevelopment of Euljiro and Seun sanga area will be very important step as well as the renovation of some historic/tourist places like Jongmyo as you said.

Jamsil Sports Complex redevelopment.

that hotel should be 200m+. If everything ends up happening as seen in the images, man...looks like we're in for a "legendary" development.

According to Yonhap News, construction will begin on 2021 and end in 2025.

i found an interesting article about architecture in Seoul and the floor-to-area ratio limit and how this limit forces architects to be creative if they want to build high:
http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20160403000259



For example, i find it interesting that the design of this building is only because of the floor-to-area limit.
The architect implemented those "missing pieces" into the building in order to exceed the limit and build a higher building, because the "missing pieces" don't count into the buildings floor area.

Quote:
“It’s very common to see awkward building designs in Seoul, resulting from attempts to meet floor-area ratio limits. But the building like this is an example where an architect saw the floor-area ratio restriction as a positive drive to realize his creativity,”

Lacking unity? I hope that he doesn't think that's what foreigners view as the problem. On the contrary, there's far too much unity: row after row, one development after another, of identical, dull concrete apartments. I don't doubt the vision and talent of South Korea's architects for a second; I do question the wisdom of land owners looking to turn a quick fat profit by building utterly disposable housing.

New park (it was actually a park before but wasn't all that great) :

Seosomun History Park

The park is located just west of the railroad North of Seoul Station, just west of the historical district. Construction has started in february and will last until early 2018 (parts of the parks will open in late 2017). It looks stunning.

The park was initially planned to be some kind of shrine / memorial for Catholicism, because it is the place Catholics were executed during the late Joseon dynasty (and I think Pope Francis visited it when he came to Korea). But the plans were changed for something that is more inclusive and not specifically dedicated to Catholicism. Anyway, here are the renders :

Groundbreaking ceremony :

http://www.hankookilbo.com/v/9e15f7c...e3e5c3aef01813





Doneuimun History Park

Another new park in a close location. This one is a bit more North right in front of the Gyeongheuigung Palace. It's more of a neighborhood park, but it's nice, because Hyeongheuigung Palace was a bit out of view, stuck between small run-down buildings. Demolition has just started, and the park should be completed by next year.

Here is the place before construction :



The map :


The park is at the top-right corner, at the center is the currently under construction Gyeongheuigung Xi apartment complex, while the top part is the Palace

And finally the demolition currently underway (photo from 4 days ago) :

Ichon Hangang Park

Ichon Hangang Park is the riverside park on the North bank in Yongsan. It already exists. But it's not so green right now, with car parks and such, so it's not so green and has quite a lot of concrete. This is part of the greater Hangang Rehabilitation plan for 2030. Approval has recently been received and the park will be rebuilt from this month until December 2017. It also seems (by looking at pictures and satellite images) that the park will be extended East a bit, near the Banpo bridge were the park isn't wide, if existent at all.

EDIT : Obviously, as you can see, I posted the image in the wrong thread... Sorry)

Construction pictures from today.

As you can see, lots of changes recently. The elevators have been removed, cladding is going up some more, the one of the cranes is being disassembled.

Indeed, it's disturbingly obvious that this is inspired by Ground Zero. But since, even if this park will not be solely dedicated to catholics victims of persecution in Korea, it will be a memorial of some sort for people who have been the victim of persecution, it's not all that surprising. Anyway, really looking forward to this project.

New Sulwhasoo shop has opened just outside the main gate of Dosan park. Pictures don't do this beauty justice.
