For the remodeling of the Olympic Stadium (which is only part of the bigger MICE project), Seoul has recently started a design contest, with eight entries as of right now. The final result is scheduled to be announced on May 19th.

For reminder, the project involves the remodeling of the old Olympic Stadium (built in 1984), with the pitch lower by 1.5m, and the number of seats reduced to 50,000, down from 70,000. A new auxiliary pitch would be built on the grounds of Jamsil Arena (built in 1979), as the previous auxiliary pitch would become the location of the new Jamsil Ballpark. A youth hostel is also planned to be built, to host sports teams, companies, or regular guests. Underground, a sports complex for citizens would be built, as well as the car park to the Olympic Stadium, which is currently on ground level and which takes up all the space.

I think it's a nice project, and it solves many problems of the current area. However, what will be more interesting are the new large buildings, which are not part of this contest: New Jamsil Ballpark (35,000 seats), New Jamsil Arena (merging Jamsil Arena and Students' Gymnasium), MICE, New Trade Tower (300meters), digging up the expressways, a new pier...

Hmm, I applaud the desire to renovate the old, outdated stadium, but I don't like the fact that they are lowering the number of seats. I mean, what if Seoul decides to candidate again for the Olympics or some other major sports event, the stadium would have to be rebuilt again. Nevertheless, I hope the redesign will be bold and modern.

Well, right now the stadium is barely used, at least not nearly enough to justify its 65,000+ capacity. A few concerts of football games here and there, but since the Korean national team's soccer games are mostly played at World Cup Stadium, there is little need for such an infrastructure right now.


As for Olympic Games, it's unlikely Seoul will bid for 2032. It hasn't been that long since the Seoul Olympics, and it will still be only a few years away from Pyeongchang, so the odds are low. Actually, the odds of Busan bidding are higher, as Busan wanted to bid for 2020 (withdrew after Pyeongchang got the 2018 Winter games) and 2024/2028 (withdrew after the 2020 games were awarded to nearby Tokyo). So I don't think it's very likely we'll see games in Seoul really soon. So planning for it right away would be complicated.


But more importantly, you can't really both renovate a stadium and keep the same number of seats without expanding its footprint. Renovating old stadiums always takes seats away to make place for new infrastructure (safety, better seats, suites, clubhouse), so to keep the same number of seats, you would need to physically expand the stadium, which is always complicated. It can be done fairly easily for some stadiums (English soccer stadiums with no seats in the corners, NCAA football stadiums with no roof where you can add tiers for cheap), but for an elliptical stadium with a roof and a structural integrity like Seoul Olympic Stadium, you would probably need to take the roof off and build a third tier, which would be very costly and change the overall look of the stadium, which is not something I personally support. I'm sure that if ever Seoul gets a new Olympic in 20 years or so, this option would be considered, but for the time being, building an oversized stadium which loses the iconic look of the Olympic Stadium just for the odds of getting the Olympics decades from now doesn't seem like the best option to me.

I think that after Pyeongchang 2018, Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022, Seoul will not have a chance to win the Olympic Games in the next 10 to 20 years.

Announcement of Winning Project for Jamsil Olympic Stadium remodeling

The rebuilt stadium will be under-construction from 2021 to 2024. The capacity of the stadium will be kept at 60,000, which is the threshold for a stadium to be the main venue of the Olympics.

The auxiliary stadium will also be rebuilt, as well as a Youth Hostel (135 rooms). There will also be an open-air concourse around the main stadium.

Interestingly, the location of the auxiliary stadium seems to contradict the previous news of the rebuilding of Jamsil Students' Gymnasium at (or near) that location.

SMG is managing this whole project as fairly separate projects: burying highway, Olympic Stadium Remodeling, Reconstruction of Jamsil Baseball Stadium and Jamsil Students' Gymnasium (and Jamsil Arena?), construction of MICE, construction of Trade Tower.

Most of the projects will be built at slightly different moment, especially because some stadiums and arenas can't be demolished until the replacement is built (or the pro teams would have nowhere to go). So expect additional adjustments in the future to the various locations and timelines of each "sub-project".

Overall, as someone who's usually fairly skeptical and cautious, I must say the renders look fantastic. The main frame of the stadium is preserved, so there is a continuity with the existing stadium, but at the same time the new stadium feels really more modern and much improved. The surrounding concourse and the green space around it is also great. Don't pay too much attention to areas further from the stadium on the renders (tower, pier, new ballpark...) are this is not part of this project, so the design will be chosen later.

I'm very ecstatic. Hope everything goes as planned

Reconstruction of Sports Complex roads underground

One of the main components of the project is the reorganization of the roads surrounding Jamsil Sports Complex, and the digging of tunnels to take the traffic underground to free up space for pedestrians.

This is extremely important as while transportation to the area is good (subway station on line 2 and 9, expressway junction, plenty of buses on Olympic-ro), the area is cut off for pedestrians. On the north side, it is cut off from the Jamsil Hangang Park by Olympic Avenue, on the South side by Olympic-ro (with no pedestrian crossing), on the west side by two large streets, the Tancheon car park and river, and on the East side it only communicates with the Jamsil LLL's, which is strictly residential.

So the goal is to open the Sports Complex to its greatest assets on the North (Jamsil Hangang Park, which is fairly badly developed right now) and the West (towards Gangnam and the Samseong-dong area, which will become more important with the Hyundai GBC and Yeongdeungdaero Transfer Project), by rebuilding the roads underground. It will also give more room over ground to redevelop the complex, which is already quite dense and could become even more so if the site also hosts a MICE facility, an hotel and a tower.

The budget for the digging of tunnels and overall rerouting of traffic will be 600 millions USD, the plan will be finalized this year and construction is scheduled to start in H2 2019m with completion planned for 2023.

I think this is a crucial project and the good news is that compared to the previous plans, its scope has been modified:
- As planned, the Olympic Avenue will be covered under ground and Sports Complex will be connected to Jamsil Hangang Park.
- More ramps will be added to Tancheon IC and Sincheon IC (as it was only possible to change roads to go one way)
- The East Tancheon road (just west of Sports Complex) will be dug underground for 550 meters, instead of the previously planned 365.
- The West Tancheon road (on the Gangnam side of Tancheon river) will not be dug down but be rebuilt as a pedestrian
- The road west of the old Seoul Medical Center Gangnam Branch (Bongeunsa-ro 114-gil) will be extended from 2 lanes to 4 to compensate for the suppression of Tancheon West road. As you know, Seoul Medical Center Gangnam Branch is currently being sold by Seoul, and will bridge the area between Hyundai GBC and Sports Complex if a bidder is found)
- A pedestrian bridge will be built between Sports Complex and the lot of the Seoul Medical Center Gangnam Branch
