A 100-Story Building To Rise In Yongsan, South Korea

The Yongsan International Business District will feature landmarks over 100 stories high, the world’s first 1.1-kilometer-long skytrain connecting 45-story buildings, and a 500,000-square-meter green space that will cover the area of the project site from underground to ground to air. 

This will transform Yongsan into the world’s largest three-dimensional mixed-use vertical city, 4.4 times the size of Hudson Yards, the largest mixed-use development in Manhattan, New York City, and 4.5 times the size of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo, Japan.

Today, the City of Seoul announced the “Development Plan for Yongsan International Business District,” stating the above, and announced that it will begin to promote the project in earnest. It will announce the development plan in the first half of this year, and will begin approval of the implementation plan, infrastructure construction, and land supply in the first and second half of next year, respectively. It aims to complete the infrastructure in 2028 and move in by the early 2030s.

We look forward to the world’s largest vertical urbanization in Yongsan, the center of Seoul!
