New Hotel Prince building in Myeongdong has been completed. The building on the left of the second picture is new also.

This building in Sinsa, with its sparkling lights, looks fantastic at night, but didn't come out well in this iphone 4 camera picture.

South Great Gate to get traffic-free zone

Korea's first National Treasure is to get a traffic-free entertainment spot, in response to complaints of poor accessibility due to heavy traffic.

A 2,500-square-meter area next to South Great Gate, also known as Namdaemun or Sungnyemun, will become a mini square for street festivals and a city-designated photo zone, according to Seoul Metropolitan Government Sunday.

With decades-old Namdaemun Market within five minutes' walk, the area will work closely with the traditional venue, promoting vendors and food for tourists.

SMG's latest addition to the South Great Gate area is purportedly in line with the city's ongoing renovation project called "Seoullo 7017."

This will turn an aged overpass across Seodaemun-gu and Jung-gu districts into a promenade within this year.

Seoul will select one of designs by five environmental architects, with construction due to start in the second half of this year.

Thank gawd! The traffic snarl around Namdaemun--insane 10-lane roads and all--has stood out in my mind as one of the best examples of Korea's road-madness for as long as I can remember being interested in urban planning, Seoul, and Korea generally. Can't wait to see what improvements architects and planners have in mind.

Indeed. For a structure designated as National Treasure Number One it boggles the mind how it has been treated so poorly by the city's planners.

Hanwha Headquarters Remodelling Underway in Seoul
Quote:
Originally completed in 1998, the Hanwha Headquarters tower in downtown Seoul was initially built as a relatively non-descript office block at the centre of a cluster of office towers that line the heavily urbanized Cheonggyecheon Stream running through the city centre. At 21 storeys tall and currently clad in a mixture of grey-brown panelling and dark-blue-tinted windows, the tower has long been in need of a facelift. The tower and related public realm elements are set to be completely revamped by UNStudio as part of an ambitious remodelling project to be completed by 2018.

The nighttime rendering for the Hanwha Headquarters building shows an apparent re-skinning of the first two floors of the office building to the east (left) of it (Hyunam Building), though the daytime render does not show such a re-skinning. Does this mean a potential re-cladding of the Hyunam Building as well?

You mean jang gyu building(장교)
Yes I can check re-skinning at rendering
It seems show first 2fl remodeling

but I check seoul data but can't find anything information about plan.
So i think that so far that rendering is just miss representation or exaggerate
btw that building old now. So I think it must changed something new or remodeling

Inno, what station is that project render next to? Was trying to look at big train stations to figure it out, but I didn't see anything that kind of matched that picture.

It looks quite tall, but if that's the final design, it'll be another missed opportunity for something really special .

On the lower left side you can see construction going on at a highrise building.
The steel skeleton of this building was standing empty for many years. I'm happy to see that finally something is happening with it!

It is the big Cheongnyangri Station project. There is already a thread about it, but it hasn't been updated recently.

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1742344

This project is not to be mistaken for the other project spearheaded by Lotte right across the street, on the site of the former Cheongnyangri 588 red-light district, and which is already being demolished. (http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1775511&page=2)

EDIT : Just went through the press. There was an article from January saying that this project might be in danger, and a more recent one (http://view.asiae.co.kr/news/view.ht...31713520194102) from a week ago saying that it has picked up steam again, and they were targeting for a late 2017 groundbreaking. So if that's true that would be great news.

I agree
New riverside hyundai project will be harmony with Accor-Ambassador Hotel.
Accro is very unique design especially gate shape.

Is this to be a residential, hotel, office, or mixed-use tower?

Odd to see Hyundai doing another skyscraper now, what with all the amazingly-complicated logistics which will be involved in the Hyundai development in Gangnam.
