Master planned by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Gale International and Posco E&C, the 1,500-acre financial district will include 50 million square feet of office space, 30 million square feet of residential, 10 million square feet for retail, and five million square feet for hotels. Green space will account for another 10 million square feet.
“It’s a fully fledged city and has every function that you might need other than agriculture and industry,” says KPF principal James von Klemperer. “That includes culture, health, education, commerce, and recreation. We’ve been working on the project for about seven years, and we’ve had 50 to 60 people working day and night for a long, long time.”
