Editorial from today's Korea Herald, casting doubts over the projects due to...well... you guessed it... politics

Quote:
[Editorial] Yet another Hangang plan

True master plan should withstand test of time


The central government and the Seoul Metropolitan Government jointly announced a master plan for the development of the Hangang River and its riverbank earlier this week, signaling the start of yet another large-scale attempt to exploit one of the capital’s major assets.

The plan, which was one year in the making, divides the Hangang River into seven regions for multiphase development into a tourism destination while at the same time restoring the river’s ecology.

The first phase of the development is focused in the Yeoui-Ichon area. The blueprint envisions spaces for hallyu performances and exhibitions, a pier deck modeled after San Francisco Pier 39 and stores housed in movable containers all completed by 2018 on the riverbank in Yeouido. Incidentally, this ties in nicely with Hanwha Group’s recent successful bid to open a duty-free shop on Yeouido.

On the water, amphibious buses will connect Yeouido and Hongdae as well as Hapjeong, two popular tourist spots, while high-speed ferries will offer an alternative means of getting around.

The first phase of the project will cost some 400 billion won — part of the cost will be borne by the private sector with the central government and Seoul City splitting the remainder of the bill. The planners estimate that some 4,000 new jobs will be created. The authorities also expect the development plan to greatly boost the number of visitors to the Hangang River from the current 65 million per year to more than 100 million by 2030.

At a glance, the latest vision to develop the Hangang River is not much different from the Hangang Renaissance project pushed by former Seoul Mayor Oh Sei-hoon. Oh sought to capitalize on the Hangang River as a tourism asset too, launching water taxis, building cafes on bridges and constructing a floating island. In fact, the floating island, renamed Saevit Island since then, was the subject of much criticism by Mayor Park Won-soon during the early part of his administration: Seoul City civil servants were even asked to compile a white paper on the “failure” of the artificial island project. One major difference between the Hangang Renaissance project and the latest development plan is that the central government is firmly behind the effort.

However, the partnership between the central government and Seoul City may only be a tenuous one. Although Seoul City sought to strive to recover the natural state of the Hangang River, it appears the central government got its way in prioritizing tourist destination development, at least in the first phase. The master plan does not include removal of the dam near Gimpo Bridge, a point of much contention between the city, which is pushing for its removal with the claim that it pollutes the river by slowing down its flow, and the central government, which argues that the dam is needed to control the water level.

While the master plan calls for the phased development of the Hangang River, there is a possibility that the project may not survive beyond the first phase. Indeed, the Yeoui-Ichon development should be seen as a pilot project since the development of the remaining six areas hinges on the success of the first-phase development.

The central government and Seoul City have not fundamentally reconciled their differences over the direction of the river development, adding to the uncertainty of the project’s future. It may very well be that Yeoui and Ichon will be the only ones to have benefited from the new master plan if the next mayor or the next government decides to terminate the project. Such terminations and abrupt changes are not unusual in Korea.

Hangang River is an asset that should be utilized by the current generation and, at the same time, conserved for the generations to come. A true master plan should be forward-looking, one that withstands the vagaries of politicians.

Ichon Hangang Park is being rehabilitated, as I mentioned in a post on Projects & Construction thread.

Technically, this is not the same redevelopment project, but that doesn't change much of anything. Here is the news I posted a couple of months ago.

Ichon Hangang Park

Ichon Hangang Park is the riverside park on the North bank in Yongsan. It already exists. But it's not so green right now, with car parks and such, so it's not so green and has quite a lot of concrete. This is part of the greater Hangang Rehabilitation plan for 2030. Approval has recently been received and the park will be rebuilt from this month until December 2017. It also seems (by looking at pictures and satellite images) that the park will be extended East a bit, near the Banpo bridge were the park isn't wide, if existent at all.

I was actually at the park today, and I noticed construction starting:

20160606_171915 by kimahrikku1, on Flickr
20160606_173425 by kimahrikku1, on Flickr

Behind those fence, some very early work had started (all the ground was turned into dirt but that's about it so far). Construction will probably pick up pace later. In any case, completion is provisionally scheduled for December 2017.

As I walked the park today, I could see for myself that the park indeed was in need of improvement / refurbishment. There's nothing wrong with the park per se, but it does feel fairly old, without much of a specific identity and atmosphere, compared to Hangang Park in Banpo, Yeouido or Nanji

As part of the Jamsil Sports Complex Redevelopment Project, the city government has announced its plan to build a gondola between Jamsil and the Ttukseom Park / Resort, spanning over the Han River, so for a length of around 1000 meters. Each gondola would have a capacity of 8 people.

Construction would start at the same time of the Jamsil Complex, so not before 2019.

More updates on the Redevelopment of the Ichon Hangang Park.

I went cycling there a couple of weeks ago and I saw that a lot of civil engineering was going on. The scale of the projectis actually fairly big.

I don't have a picture to show but completion is scheduled for December, I'm curious about the result

Apparently, the eastern section of the Ichon Hangang Park, from Hangang Bridge to Dongjak Bridge (2.1km), will also be redeveloped in a more ecological way. Construction should begin soon and be completed by the end of 2018.

Hangang Pedestrian Bridge

Here is a new project in its very early steps, but which I believe is worth mentioning.

Seoul Metropolitan Government has announced a plan (more of a proposal at this point) to build a pedestrian bridge over the Hangang river, right next to the Hangang bridge, between Nodeul Island and the Ichon Hangang park.

Hangang bridge was the first bridge to be built over the Han river back during the Japanese Colonial Era, and is also infamous for being demolished (bombed) by retreating ROK troops during the first battle of Seoul in June 1950. Civilians were not informed of the plans for the bombing and many died during the explosion. A new bridge was built after the end of the Korean war.

This project would include a swimming pool / deck on the bridge, a small pier for boats, and a memorial in honor of the previous bridge and the tragic events that I mentioned.

Of course the designs have not been selected yet, and the project has not been approved.

But I think it's an idea with good potential. Certainly the site has historical value. Nodeul Island Project will be completed in September 2019. I don't think the Nodeul Island project is extremely exciting architecturally, but considering its location (center of Seoul, near Ichon Hangang Park), its content (concert venue and related cultural place), it's likely to become quite popular with Seoulites. What it will likely lack to some degree is accessibility, with no subway, and difficulty of access for pedestrians exactly, so this could help solve the problem.

I think we need more time to see what this project will actually be like, as well as how the Nodeul Island turns out, but worth keeping an eye on.

Some of the projects are a joke like that Apgujoeng Garosugil Fashion Street shit. That commercial area is EMPTY AS HELL NOW and nobody goes to that area no more to shop. Every commercial district is concentrated in Gangbuk in areas like Hongdae, Sinchon, Myeongdong, Itaewon, Jongro, etc. Korean Public Administrators must be retarded

Jamsil Hangang Park development

Seoul City has announced its plans to redevelop part of the Jamsil Hangang Park, currently located just next to the Jamsil LLL's and Jamsil Ricenz Apartment complexes.

Right, now, the area is poorly used. It's already a park, but has a large squarish sandlot, a car park, and the not so pretty swimming pool.

The city now plans to rebuild this section of the park (45,000sqm), for a budget of around USD 18M, with construction to begin in 2021 and with the opening planned for 2022.

The new park would feature a better swimming pool with some sort of water park, a botanic garden, an area for sunbathing, and a sandy beach.

Final plans will only be finalized next year, but this is definitely a good idea. Jamsil Hangang Park is one of Seoul's biggest Hangang Park, but might be the most underused, as it's not really beautiful, compared to Banpo, Ichon, Ddukseom or Yeouido. I think that the initial plans are very compelling, and I can't wait to see the final result.
