I disagree. The bright yellow aspens stand out very strikingly against the remaining green of the lodgepole pines. It coincides with the first snowfalls dusting the peaks, making autumn the most colourful moment in the year.

$ 40 billions apartment redevelopment project called Apgu juong.

Located Han river park and It divided as 6 district
Land area is 1,150,000㎡ and now 10,000 household live in there.
Big issue is they compromised with Seoul 35fl regulation or not.
Some citizens try to accept 35fl below limit and fast U/C begin.
But other citizens asking wait for New Seoul mayor election and 35fl regulation dismiss and want to built skyscraper cluster.

Gyeongchun Line Forest Trail

Phase 3 of the Gyeongchun Line Forest Trail in Eastern Seoul opened to the public.

In late 2018, a small section between Phase 1 and 2 will be opened to the public and connect the full park.

Seoul Battleship Park

A new "park" opened two days ago at Mangwon Hangang Park, which is the Seoul Battleship Park. It features refurshished decommissioned battleships (one frigate, one submarine, and a patrol ship)

I really like this concept, it's fun, unique, with good cultural and historical value.

Jamsil Baseball Stadium Reconstruction

A workshop was held this week to discuss the reconstruction of Jamsil Baseball Stadium.

As you know, it is part of the massive Jamsil Sports Complex redevelopment project.

As an avid baseball fan who often goes to Jamsil Stadium, this is a topic of special interest for me.

The entire project is scheduled to be completed by 2025.

The new ballpark will be built just North of the Olympic Stadium, on the grounds of the auxiliary stadium / field.

The outfield seats will be orientated North with great views of the Han River, although the current view is great as well with the Gangnam skyline on the 1st base bleachers.

The big question is about whether to make it an open, domed, or retractable roof stadium. Open is cheaper (200 million), but is a problem because games get rained out, and it can get too hot or polluted. It also prevents using the stadium during the winter, which prevents Korea from hosting large baseball events (MLB All-Star Tours, Premier12, World Baseball Classic, other domestic events) or other events such as concerts.

A dome would solve those problems, but is significantly more expensive, and domed stadium are usually known for their hollow atmosphere, artificial grass, and would not benefit from the great views or the sun in the summer.

Finally, retractable-roof is the most expensive option, but allows for use of the stadium in all seasons while being able to play outdoors most of the time when the weather is good.

The total capacity would be 35,000 (compared to 26,000 today, but without the same amenities or comfort).

While some want a bigger stadium, I agree that 35,000 is sufficient, and on par with some of the newest MLB stadium. The previous renders (which were just artist impressions) showed an asymmetrical structure with more seats on one side of the ballpark than the other. I think this is good, not only because the best looking ballparks are asymetrical, but because Korean Home Teams usually always sit on one side (currently 1st base in Jamsil), which makes the Home side frequently sell-out, while the Visitor side is fairly empty, which is inefficient and unaesthetic.

I would personally put Retractable Roof first, and Open-air second. I suspect the figures they're giving for the cost are voluntarily lowballing open-air stadium as they're leaning towards open-air.

I'd favor the retractable-roof of the canopy variety (rather than a full roof), similar to Minute Maid Park or Safeco Field.

We'll see, in any case the public is split on the issue, and it's gonna take at least one year before a final decision is made.

Agreed. Normally, I'd balk at jumping at the biggest, flashiest, most-expensive option for a stadium, considering how singular their purpose is...but that's usually because, in the American context, it's construction of brand new, enormous stadiums in municipalities which just cannot justify the expense.

Given the location of this one, though, it makes sense. Any new stadium here would likely be the premier stadium of the country, and considering that Korea is still transitioning (slowly, haltingly) to a more leisure-oriented society, it makes sense to invest in a showpiece now.

Definitely. You could argue that there is still a lack of sports infrastructure in Korea. One exception is Soccer, because of the 2002 World Cup and all the stadiums which were built at that time and which have stood the test of time quite well. I'll only be talking about baseball from now on, but it shall be noted that for a World Top-10 City like Seoul, it's surprising to see that there is no multi-purpose arena which sits over 12-000 seats.


Baseball is the nation's national pastime, and until recently, the infrastructure was bad. There has been a flurry of new ballparks (Incheon-Munhak: 2002, Gwangju-Kia: 2014, Suwon-kt remodeling: 2015, Daegu-Samsung: 2016, Gocheok SkyDome: 2016, Changwon-Masan: 2019). You could add to that Ulsan and Pohang (although the new stadiums don't have a pro team), and there are plans for new ballparks in Daejeon and Busan as well.


Nonetheless, there is no jewel crown of Korean Baseball, unlike in Japan (culturally, Koshien ; economically, Tokyo Dome).


And while I don't always support big sport infrastructure, we have to consider that given the current capacity and scheduling at Jamsil, the new ballpark would be likely to attract over 20,000 fans per game on average (against around 15,000 for Jamsil). With the only stadium in the world hosting 2 pro baseball teams, it would potentially come close to Dodger Stadium for most spectators in a year, or Staples Center / Madison Square Garden for most events held in a year.


One interesting comment during the workshop was that Jamsil, although the most attended stadium in Korea, didn't have the reputation of being the "national stadium". This image is still associated with the now-demolished Dongdaemun Baseball Stadium. Until recently, it was virtually impossible to play baseball in Korea between November and mid March, due to the weather. So Korean teams had to move to Japan or Taiwan for a variety of international competitions, and even for training between Korean teams.


The opening of Gocheok SkyDome has opened a few possibilities (WBC and National Team preparation games this past March, National Team preparation games for APBC this November, and a couple of charity, women or high school games last eyar), but the stadium's limited capacity of 17,000, the lukewarm reception, its relative poor location and the fact that it is the home of the team with the least popular support (Nexen Heroes), have preventing it from becoming Korea's #1 ballpark. So to a certain degree, the new Jamsil Stadium should indeed become a landmark of Korean baseball. We have to be cautious with the use of the word "landmark" everywhere (thrown around everywhere for anything in Korea media, and setting a realistic capacity goal of 35,000 (some want 40-45,000) is important.


Finally, for a real estate perspective, and independently of baseball, we have to remind ourselves that this area is probably the highest valued in Korea. To the West you have (by 2025): COEX, Hyundai GBC, Yeongdeungdaero Transfer Complex. On the redeveloped site itself: legacy Olympic Stadium, largest basketball arena in Korea, redeveloped green waterfront, subway transfer station for Lines 2 and 9, new MICE site with 300m tower... To the East: Lotte World and Lotte World Tower, most expensive apartment lots in Korea. So I believe that for a long term strategy, it is important to build a stadium befitting of this area, rather than be cheap just to save some money. That doesn't mean that the stadium NEEDS to be retractable, but whether it is retractable, domed or open, it does need to make a certain statement regarding architecture, facilities and amenities, at least by Korean standards.


Also, no final decision will be made by the administration until the end of next year, and by then there will be local elections. While the current political landscape tends to favor the established Democratic Party, it's no sure thing that Park Won-Sun will be re-elected. Not only he could lose in the general election, but as a two-time incumbent in his 60s, who sits left of Party's center of gravity and who polls badly on the national stage, it is very possible that the Democratic Party is going to try to replace him with another candidate. So, with a project of this scale, too big to be completely apolitical, if a new mayor is elected, it will affect the project one way or the other.

Official Seoul International design competition concern Jamsil 5 apartment 50fl project!

-Seoul government begin International design competition about civil apartment project.
-this one located infront LWT 555M and to built massive skyscraper.
-So Seoul want to make these skyscraper as creative and more contribute to Seoul's landscape.

What I interesting is this project contain a lot of public facility such like Library/walking bridge connected with Han river/Hotel/commercial etc

So everybody can using these luxury apartment facility after that shopping LWT!

So we can see really gorgeous civil apartment like Singafore's residence.
