The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) is planning to redevelop the Jamsil Sports Complex in Seoul, South Korea.
The project involves the redevelopment of Jamsil sports complex on 400,000m2 of land.
The overall project includes the construction of a 100,000m2 convention and exhibition center, a 1,000-room business hotel, a 500-room five-star hotel, a 250-room youth hostel, an 11,000-seat sports complex, a 35,000-seat baseball stadium, an indoor gymnasium, a swimming pool, shops and restaurants, a museum and related facilities. These facilities will be developed in three phases.
The first phase includes the removal of the student gym and swimming pool and the construction of two hotels, a sports complex comprising 11,000 seats, a swimming pool, an indoor gymnasium and a concert hall; the second phase includes the construction of a youth hostel and a secondary stadium, and the development of the area by the river; and the third phase includes the construction of an exhibition and convention center and related facilities.
In May 2015, SMG launched an international ideas competition for the project, which asks for creative, innovative and outstanding ideas to transform the area into an international attraction.
In October 2015, the winners of the international ideas competition were announced, “A Thousand City Plateaus” designed by Unsangdong Architects Cooperation, “Jamsil Ludens Park” by Kunwon Architects Planners Engineers, and “SynchroniCity” by Kyu Sung Woo and four other individual architects from the U.S.
BXBstudio and Niko Kapa (Karintzaidis) were appointed as architects.
SMG is planning to select a private developer to start the construction while, the Korea International Trade Association (KITA) is in the process of making preparations to win the bid to be the main operator of the convention center project. Due to tough competition, KITA decided to focus on securing financial backing, as it needs to cover at least 15 percent of the construction cost with its own equity. The main operator of the business will be selected by 2018 and the construction will take place from 2019 to 2025, according to the proposed plan.
Construction on the first phase is expected to commence in 2019 and be completed by 2022. The second phase will be completed by 2023, while the third phase will be completed by 2025.
