I'll report when more information pops up.

Video announcement:



The winner of the architectural project for this bridge has been selected, and was announced today by Seoul Metropolitan Government.
The new 10.5-meter wide, 500-meter long bridge is scheduled to be completed in 2021. The construction contract is planned to be signed by the end of this year, and construction to begin in early 2020, following the demolition of the Noryangjin Overpass, for an opening in June 2021.
As I had previously reported on the Seoul Projects & Construction thread, another pedestrian bridge is under planning on the section between Nodeul Island and Yongsan, with a planned opening in 2022. And the new Nodeul Island Culture Center itself is scheduled to open this September.

Meritz to build 20-floor building near Seoul Station

Korean Insurance company Meritz will build a 20-floor building in Bongrae-dong, just North of Seoul Station. The previous buildings in this location were demolished 5 years ago. The previous plans were for a 19-floor building but the plans, which were just approved, are now for 20 floors instead.

Construction will start in December and is expected to be completed by late 2022.



The map is the bit weird as the actual lot is the lot at the corner of the two streets, while on the map it looks like it's the second lot down from the intersection, but whatever...

There will be some restoration work done in the building to transform it into a museum.

This will be located right in front of the Yongsan Central Park Harrington Square (on the south side), and only a couple of minutes away from Yongsan Station.

Very interesting project, as it is well located, uses a nice building, and should have interesting content. Yongsan was not part of the old town of Seoul, but became important when Joseon Dynasty and the Empire of Korea opened their doors to the outside world in the late 19th century. This is also where the Japanese set their garrison in the early 20th century, and following the Korean War, this is where the US garrison is located. It is the heart of Korea's rail network and is now located at the center of Seoul, where many developments are underway. Quite an historic place with a long history.

Renovation will mostly be conducted in 2021, and the project will cost around 7 Million dollars.

Yongsan Hospital Lot Redevelopment

I had mentioned around 6 months ago the upcoming creation of a new museum inside the Historical Building of the Yongsan Hospital.


Well, this museum project is part of a greater one, which is moving forward. Hyundai Development Company has signed a contract to redevelop the lot, and as part of this development, it will donate money to create this museum. But for the rest of the lot, it will build a mixed-use complex which will include apartments, businesses and commercial space. The full scale of the project is still unknown, but this could be an other significant addition to the Yongsan skyline.


Still many steps ahead of us, but I'll keep you posted.

Article from today's Korea TimesHerald:

As land prices soar, Seoul places its next public housing project on highway


Seoul is running out of space for new public housing projects.

For years, commercial real estate development has pushed up land prices in the city. Greater costs follow public projects that require buying and building on private land. In response, Seoul Housing & Communities Corp. (SH), Seoul's public housing builder, is eyeing what might be considered relatively "vacant" public land, such as bus garages and water treatment centers.

On Monday, SH announced a pilot project for one such underused space ― the air above a congested highway.

The plan looks too simple to actually work. A flat-topped rectangular tunnel is placed over a 500-meter section of the Bukbu Expressway in northeastern Seoul. A multi-floor housing complex for at least 1,000 households with flanking gardens is then placed on top of this hollow structure, straddling over speeding cars.

The public builder claims the engineering feat is both doable and cost-effective.

"Under the circumstances, it's an economical solution. Land prices have soared while engineering costs have fallen comparatively," Kim Sei-yong, head of SH, explained at a press conference on Monday where he unveiled the preliminary blueprint for the project.

The 500-meter-long deck over Bukbu Expressway could create up to 23,500 square meters of new space around 10 meters above the ground. According to SH, the expected cost of building such a deck capable of supporting high-rise structures is only 70 percent of the cost of buying the same area of land near the chosen site.

Another 51,000 square meters of public and private land on either side of the motorway will be connected to the raised platform and incorporated into the housing complex. The expected total budget ― including the cost of buying privately owned land included in the plan as well as engineering and construction costs ― is 421.3 billion won ($347 million).

Land is a contested resource in Seoul. Ten million residents ― one-fifth of the nation's population ― vie for space within the outer rims of the 600-square-kilometer metropolis. An increasing number are priced out each year to the surrounding Gyeonggi Province, and spends hours on the road or underground commuting to work in Seoul.

Old neighborhoods are erased every day to make way for new apartment complexes and high-rise condos. But with investors gobbling up housing units and traditional four-to-five person families splitting into many more one- or two-person households, there is never enough housing to go around.

The term "affordable housing" is an oxymoron for most Seoul citizens now. A host of macro policies introduced by the current Moon Jae-in administration has done little to normalize housing prices.

One way low- and middle-income residents maintained a foothold in Seoul despite all this was public housing. There are over 300,000 public housing units in Seoul and Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon plans to increase this number to 400,000 ― around 10 percent of the total housing market ― by 2022.

The idea of building the next public housing complex over a highway didn't come from city officials or engineers. The idea was drawn from abroad, most notably Germany's Schlangenbader Strasse. Built in the 1970s by architects Georg Heinrichs, Gerhard Krebs and Klaus Krebs, the megastructure is dubbed the "snake" due to its winding form over a 600-meter section of a highway. Though there were some structural problems at the time of construction, the current residents of the 1,064 apartment units inside show high levels of satisfaction with the motorway housing complex, according to German media outlets.

Like the Schlangenbader Strasse, the Bukbu Expressway housing complex will be focused on creating an attractive living infrastructure rather than fitting as many housing units as possible in the given space. Communal spaces like libraries and swimming pools as well as co-working spaces for startups will be incorporated into the buildings. In line with the decreasing number of traditional four- to five-member households in the population, the apartments inside will be designed for one- or two-person households ― young people or young married couples without money to break into the commercial real estate market.

SH says it can keep all car lanes on Bukbu Expressway open during construction to minimize drivers' inconvenience. Nearby residents will likely suffer from some noise or dust pollution during the construction period, but once completed the neighborhood will benefit from the enclosure of traffic noise and pollution, it said.

SH also plans to line the tunnel with sound-absorbing boards. Six pedestrian skyways will connect the elevated deck to the nearby railway station and residential areas, previously cut off from each other by the highway.

Construction for the complex will start in the latter half of 2021, after the final design is picked through an international contest this year.

Gongpyeong District 15 and 16 Redevelopment

The city has released the plans for the redevelopment of Gongpyeong District 15 and 16 (by exit 11 of Jonggak Station).

Floor Area Ratio will be 1000% and the maximum height will be 70 meters. The new buildings will partly mix the existing buildings, on top of which will be built a more modern building. The incorporation of older buildings in the new development is surely an interesting development. While the project is still in its early phases and will change, it's good to see this move forward.

Yongsan Wonhyo Sanho Apartment Reconstruction

Seoul City has approved the plans for the reconstruction of the Wonhyo Sanho Apartments in Yongsan. Located right in front of the Hangang River, they have one of the best views of Seoul, as they are the apartments right in front of Yeouido. If the IBD project comes to fruition, this will be one of the most sought after location.

According to the revised plans from the city, the redeveloped complex will top at 35 floors and provide 672 housing units. (floor area ratio: 281%), up from 555 in the current apartment complex.

We still have a few more years to go before construction though... but this could be a nice addition to the skyline.

every participants in this business know that that's not gonna be final design.

Can't be built in that way, and that kind of apartment can't be sold in Korean housing market

Don't be naive.

all you can learn from this design is about concept's big frame( : just an another "35stories-high" apartments in Yongsan)

and also, it doesn't look good aesthetically to me




저렇게 안(못)지어집니다.

그냥 조금 나은 또 하나의 35층 따리 주상복합 단지 계획..

게다가 요즘같은 제약 하에서는 조합원들이 모두 재벌이 아닌 하에야...

Opening of Nodeul Island

After over a decade of planning and controversies, Nodeul Island Cultural Complex opened to the public on Saturday September 28th.

Only the Cultural Complex opened on the 28th, and the park section near the river is still in the last stages of construction (my understanding is that it will open in October).

I actually went there yesterday, on the 2nd day of the opening weekend (which had some special events), so here are my impressions.

The first thing that I'd like to say is that, as feared, the buildings are truly not inspiring, and are blocky. Architecturally, it's tough to really be pleased with the design. That being said, the complex has an underground floor which is fairly nice, and there is a fairly nice underground patio which is connected with the upper floor. The concert hall building is also supposed to be lit up at night in a nice way (although I only visited the place during daytime).

There is a nice library, lounge, a couple of restaurants and a multi-purpose area. On the opening weekend there was a few events, so it did feel very lively and nice to stroll around. I didn't visit the concert hall itself, but I think that there is quite a lot of decent things to do in the island. Also, due to the location of the project, it is very " instagrammable". There are many great lines of sight (especially for Yeouido), but overall all of central Seoul. So, so far, I think the opening was fairly successful. It is not so much a reflection of what the complex is architecturally, but more a reflection of the content proposed and the overall location.

The purpose is not so much to compare this to another landmark building in Seoul (in this case it's definitely lacking), but to compare it to other Hangang Parks in Seoul. The other Hangang Parks are quite crowded already, and this one can be a very good alternative, with fantastic view, some restaurants, libraries and other areas.

I'm curious about how this will turn out once the "park" itself is completed next month, as well as if they build a pedestrian cultural bridge on top of the Hangang Bridge (by 2021). Since Nodeul Island is not too far from Nodeul Station and due to the important number of bus lines stopping by the island, I think it can be pretty successful, even if architecturally, it is definitely true that it lacks ambition.

Expansion of bike lanes in central Seoul





Seoul city to conduct further road diet to reduce number of lanes dedicated to road traffic and increase dedicated bike lanes.

Seoul city will reduce Euljiro's number of lanes from 6 to 4 from City Hall to Dongdaemun (2.5km), and on Sejong-daero from 10~12 lanes to 6~8 on a 1.5km section south of the crossing with Jongro. Larger sidewalks and dedicated bike lanes will be created on the reclaimed space. On Chungmuro (1km) and Changgyeonggung-ro (0.9km), which are one-way roads, one lane will be removed and replaced by bike lanes and parking spots.

Work is also already underway for the reduction of Toegye-ro from 6~8 lanes to 4~6 lanes with the addition of bike lanes on a length of 2.6km.

More ddaereungi and car-sharing stations will also be installed.

Seoul to expand pedestrian spaces on Sejong-daero, Euljiro

At least two of the lanes on Sejong-daero and Euljiro, respectively, will be made into pedestrian footpaths, the Seoul Metropolitan Government announced Wednesday.

According to a blueprint for road reorganization it released, the lanes on the two main streets will be turned into footpaths incorporating bike lanes and parking for a car-sharing service to be launched by the city government.

Two of six traffic lanes will be removed from a 2.5-kilometer stretch of Euljiro between City Hall and Dongdaemun History and Culture Park; while a 1.5-kilometer stretch of the 10- and 12-lane Sejong-daero between Gwanghwamun and Seoul stations will be reduced to six and eight lanes.

The repurposing of the two major roads crossing central Seoul will take place next year.

The sidewalk (footpath) in front of the Daehan Gate of Deoksu Palace will be widened by five meters and a new crosswalk will be put in at its far end to connect to Sungnyemun Gate, which will allow residents to walk non-stop to Mount Nam and Seoullo 7017, an elevated public park near Seoul Station.

The city will also cut one traffic lane on Changgyeonggung-ro and Chungmuro to widen the sidewalks, build bike lanes and parking spots. Crosswalks in 35 locations will be raised slightly to create speed bumps to ensure vehicles slow down.

Work has already begun on a 2.6 kilometer stretch of Toegye-ro to transform two lanes into sidewalks by May 2020. In addition, four rental spots for the city's bike-sharing service will be created alongside three parking spaces for the car-sharing project.

The city government plans to finish an overall pedestrian reconstruction project on 21 main streets in downtown Seoul by 2025. Additionally it will further expand the road repurposing project across the capital to create parks.

"The basic condition of pedestrian walkways in downtown Seoul has been improved to a certain level through various projects we've carried out but there is still more work to be done," said Hwang Bo-yeon, head of the city government's urban transport division.

"We will expand our pedestrian reconstruction project to the whole city to improve the quality of life for Seoul residents."
