Yesterday official Seoul's presentation

According to the seoul presentation They will make 12 special massive elevator and 6 normal elevator for the purpose to carry people from ground and underground each station.
So we can see what kind of massive elevator it is when they release whole design.

lyon station : 250,000 per a day
berlin station : 300,000 per a day
Tokyo station : ? per a day

awesome that the traffic will be put underground! finally some pedestrian-friendliness in this car-dominated area
^^My thoughts exactly! Yeongdong-daero was always such a monster, and I'm so glad to see it knocked down a bit. Given that, this could end up being the Times Square of Seoul, at least in terms of "place-making".
^^
I agreed
this road has been car dominated and it can be beautiful square.
Furthermore Seoul prepare New yongsan master plan and Seoul station plan.
They has another buried underground project Yonsan station~seoul station)

So we can expect another grand open ground pedestrian friendly space&underground city in the very center of Seoul:)

Coex "Times Square"

Update on the Times Square project. Construction is scheduled to begin in October and to be completed before the end of 2017 so that they can hold New York celebrations with the billboards working.

I doubt the end result will be too impressive for the time being. But if Hyundai GBS get built, Parnas Tower and HDC building join in on the fun as well, and the Yeongdeung Avenue Plaza and Underground transfer station get built, the end result could be quite nice in 6 or 7 years or so.

Apparently (I have no other source to confirm this), the proposal from Dominique Perrault (who notably designed Ewha University's fantastic ECC), has won the design contest for the project.

He is a legit architect, and he seems to be good for such low-projects with complex designs which mix outside and inside, floor level and basement.

The renders are scheduled to be published on Monday. I can't wait!

Looks pretty good to me. I'll certainly be interested to get a better understanding of exactly how sunlight will be reflected four stories underground. I'm very definitely happy to see that all of Yeongdeong-daero from Teheran-ro to Bongneungsa-ro will be moved under this square. It's quite easy to see this area--once the Hyundai GBC is finished--becoming another major center of Seoul like the city government wants it to be.

OVER ground park look boring but below underground structure very interesting for me.
especially long ladder and straight avenue

If it built like above video then it is definitely gorgeous

anyway ground park boring though

but let's see what really built in there it must harmony with HYUNDAI HQ

I agree as well, I think that the proposed design is interesting and has good potential. It's important to keep in mind all the constraints placed on the architectural firms on this project, as I think the architects had very limited opportunities to be creative with all the specs.

We're talking about a space limited to what is currently a road, stuck between two huge complex (COEX and Hyundai GBC) on which they have no input, there is a set number of train tracks that have to so through the complex (subway, GTX, KTX), and some room dedicated for the bus terminal as well. Add to that the fact that you need to dig the tunnel for the road, and you get an even more limited amount of space. At street level, the requirements were for a plaza, which offers more constraints than a proper park, as the place needs to be used for large events (New Years Eve, Demonstrations, Sporting Events, Shows, Festivals...). With that in mind, I believe the project, while not revolutionary, has the potential to be a nice fit in this area.

I can't wait to see the entire area redeveloped (Hyundai GBC, Yeongdongdaero Project, Jamsil MICE...).

Update on the Yeongdongdaero-COEX "Times Square" project. I'm sure there are posts on this forum that I can find, but the electronic screens have been installed on the Eastern COEX entrance and the SM building (as well as a couple at floor level). Now, they're moving on to the next step, with the Eastern façade of the Hyundai Department Store. The last big one of the initial phase will be the Eastern façade of the InterContinental hotel.


It's getting to the point where the project is respectable, but it would be great if they find a way to add some signs to the Trade Tower or ASEM Tower (seems complicated to me for the Parnas Tower).


Of course, this project will only really take shape if Hyundai GBC gets built and the underground transfer center completed.

Contracts for the construction to be awarded in early 2019

Seoul City plans to award the contract for the USD 1.3bn project in February 2018. Construction is expected to start in May 2019.

The project is separate from the construction of the GTX Line A, which was awarded to the Shinhan Bank Consortium and which should start construction this year, although the projects are related.

For the Yeongdongdaero Transfer Center, it's also possible that a large consortium (or 2) is going to bid and be awarded the contract. Unsurprisingly, Hyundai is amongst the likely bidders, due to the potential synergy with the Hyundai GBC project.

The relationship between the 3 projects - GBC, Transfer Center, GTX A - independent on paper is going to be very interesting for the future of the GBC project. GTX is popular with the public, and any delay on the project will be perceived very negatively. It could also help curb home prices in Seoul by connecting the city with Gyeonggi province and rebalancing the prices between Gyeonggi and Seoul. On the other side, the GBC project is a private one, so it's of limited concerns for elected officials. It's also feared that greenlighting the project will push prices up. But, due to these projects being very much connected, and to public donations from Hyundai being used to finance it, it's unclear if construction of the Transfer Center can go forward without GBC being approved as well. The situation would get even more tangled if Hyundai (or a consortium involving Hyundai) is awarded the contract.

So the situation is like a predicted. It's tough to predict, but could the need to start the construction of the Transfer Center force the government to approve the GBC project? Or will it be the opposite? Will the fears of a housing market bubble slow by allowing for the construction of GBC to start push officials to slow down the Transfer Complex project?

Stay tuned for more updates. We'll know more by late September with GBC back to the MOLIT Committee

Bidding for construction of the project to be done in January-February

Seoul City has decided to conduct the bidding for the construction of the project in January and February 2019, with a target for the groundbreaking in May 2019.

The full project is for USD 1.7 billion, but the project will be partitioned into 4 tenders and construction zones.

Zone 1 (for nearly USD 300 million) will be for the construction of GTX A section as well as the Wirye-Sinsa line and the transfer station with Bongeunsa Station on Subway Line 9. Daelim, which is one of the companies which forms the consortium for the construction of GTX Line A is one of the companies reportedly interested by this tender.

Zone 2 (for nearly USD 350 million) will be for the transfer complex between Hyundai GBC and the existing COEX. Hyundai E&C, which will also build the Hyundai GBC, is considering submitting a bid for this Zone 2.

Zone 3 (for up to USD 250 million) is for the section connecting the transfer complex and the Wirye-Sinsa line and the waiting platform. Among the interested companies: GS E&C, SK E&C and smaller companies like Doosan E&C and SsangYong E&C.

Zone 4 (for up to USD 300 million) is for linking the Wirye-Sinsa line with Subway Line 2. Among the interested companies: Samsung C&T, Lotte E&C and Daelim.

The full complex is scheduled for completion in 2023.

It would seem natural for Hyundai to get the contract for zone 2, but I don’t know if that might be considered a corrupt result.

I’m so glad that this project is showing some progress!

Now completed (or almost), although I guess they'll be testing the system for a few more days before having a grand opening for the new year.

New Electronic Screens on Yeongdeung-daero

After the completion of the electronic signboard on the east façade of the Hyundai Department Store, the next 2 projects have been announced.

The first one is the installation of an electronic screen on the east façade of the Intercontinental Hotel, which is currently about to be renovated.

The second one will be quite near, and will be an electronic screen near the Parnas Tower.

See the renders below:
