Interestingly, Busan tower is remodeling to try to compete Lotter town tower which will dominate Busan's sky sooner or later

Busan tower will be the the tallest light house.
I think that this is a kind of strategy to survive for busan tower against barbarian monster. Sorry for talking off-topic.

Portside opera house to link mountains and coastline with 'landmark' design

An invited competition to design a recognisable world-class opera house in the South Korean-city of Busan has been won by Norwegian firm Snohetta. The brief requested architects to imagine a symbolic landmark on a 34,928 sq m site located at the northern seaport of Jung-gu, facing out towards the sea.

Snohetta’s concept draws links between the ocean and mountains through immense panels of glass which give clear sight-lines to either landscape, blending the boundaries of interior and exterior space. Integrating the new Opera House into the existing landscape is magnified by the team’s decision to evoke natural elements in their interior design, the bands of seating within the main auditorium reminiscent of the rings of an aging tree.

This imagery is continued into the circulation spaces as the wooden ribbons extend outwards into the social areas with subtly-lit bands which lead into the main opera theatre. These warm wooden components are counteracted by the large glass sheets which enable visitors to the Busan Opera House to enjoy uninterrupted views out over the landscape.

Externally the building takes a ‘X’ shape with smoothly curved lines echoing the waves which lap the neighbouring shore. Pedestrians will also be able to travel up to the roof of the building, through which an illuminated bulb will emerge.

Snohetta says of their vision: “An excellently accessible and democratic space. A space where the ground meets the sky; the mountain meets the horizon; the city meets the ocean and Busan meets the world. The opera in Busan will mark a paradigm shift for urban cultural space: from static object to the dynamic space; from the closed container to the open stage; from the passive to interactive; from an elitist monument to a democratic arena; from a pace for a few to a place for many.”

Google Maps updates the satellite maps for Busan. The date is around May or June 2014 so you can see the new Busan Citizens Park, North Port and other projects in the city under construction.

Busan to build second Centum City
Industrial district will embrace Internet of Things
CHICAGO ― Busan is preparing to build the so-called second Centum City, a high-end industrial park equipped with smart technology.

Centum City is an upscale multipurpose business and shopping district in the port city, featuring around 1,400 companies, including ones in the IT sector, and the world’s biggest department store, Shinsegae.

“We are going to renovate the old industrial complex (in Sasang district, west Busan) into the second Centum City, where we will promote convergence between information and communications technology, automobile and shipbuilding industries,” Busan Vice Mayor Jung Gi-ryong said Wednesday at a panel discussion of the Internet of Things World Forum in Chicago.

...

Instead of demolishing the old derelict factories of the district, which he called an outdated development method, the city will remodel the existing buildings and construct some new apartment-type factories equipped with high-end IoT technology.

“With large shipbuilders and carmakers doing business in the city, including Renault Samsung Motors and Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering, the new industrial complex will create a synergy effect,” he said.

More than 440 billion won ($414 million) will be poured into the second Centum City project by 2020.

...

He also put emphasis on collaboration between the municipal government and the private sector to accelerate the pace of the project.
Korea Herald via Kojects


"Second Centum City" estimated area according the information, full of industries and warehouses. Through this area will be constructed soon the Busan Metro Line 5 (Sasang - Hadan)

Excellent news, and looks different from this other project, the Busan CBD between Sasang and Seomyeon:








Thanks Korea2002 for those renders

Wow, those really look great. I still wish they'd do some development in Suyeong-gu, just to complete Busan's central skyline, but it's great to see development anywhere in the city, even if I have to wonder where the demand for it is coming from.

Those towers do look great but I hope they won't make the same mistakes they made with the first Centum City which looks fantastic from a distance but is absolutely awful at street level. Super wide roads and close to zero pedestrian amenity - buildings set back way too far from the street, terrible phasing of traffic lights favouring vehicles forcing pedestrians to stand around for minutes on end for the green man to cross the 50m wide road. Yuck.

It's sad to see how the Koreans do not report projects in Busan.

Haeundae Dalmaji Yoolim Norway Forest


http://themby.com/city/pusan/page/2/

Haeundae Dalmaji Yoolim Norway Forest is a fairly low (18 floors) project of 6 buildings due for completion in early 2017. Currently working on foundations.

Not spectacular, but could complement AID Sea Colony (also known as Haeundae Hillstate We've Appartments)

I really like the design, as each building is very wide, which isn't something that we get to see too often.

Construction already underway :
