Maybe they could do something similar with the LA river, make it a real river again.

Wow! Thats awesome...i also love how they designed those bridges. The area looks so much better now with the river than the highway. I hope they built alternative routes to replace that highway.

'According to a study conducted by the Korean Society of Civil Engineering in 2000, serious repair works should be done for 3 years with a budget of 100 billion won to address deficiencies of the road and elevated highway. It was for this reason that the Cheonggyecheon restroration project was formulated.'

Absolutely amazing! I hope more cities take note of this and do something similar, I think this river provides a huge improvement for the overall look and feel of the city, what an excellent idea.

I wonder if this will become the landmark Seoul desperately needs.

Thats great. All cities need more water in whatever form. It only enhances a city. It looks like they got a lot of inspiration from the San Antonio riverwalk. Hopefully it will be a great civic space for the people of Seoul when done.

Yes, I agree. Seoul Mayor should have visited Amsterdam first before he came up with this project. If they could widen the area, and let the small shops get in there it should have been more vibrant!
