About D-Cube City
Location: Seoul, South Korea
Developer: Daesung Industrial Co., Ltd.
Designer: The Jerde Partnership, Inc.; SAMOO, et al.
Located in the South Korean capital of Seoul, D-Cube City aims to represent a significant new model for urban renewal and smart density, as well as mixed-use, transit-oriented development.
The integrated public district is connected to the Sindorim Station and features over 300,000 square meters of office space and a five-star Sheraton hotel in a high-rise tower; a multilevel leisure and cultural complex; and more than six acres of public landscape, parks, and plazas.
D-Cube City emerges as Seoul’s primary live/work/play/stay destination – a vibrant, pedestrian-oriented district with unique shops and restaurants in its six-level, 80,000-square-meter commercial complex, capped by a 1,400-seat performance hall and green roof. The 42-story landmark office and hotel tower rises from the commercial district, while a new public park connects the project to the metro, the adjacent river, and recreational facilities. Two adjacent 50-story residential towers complete the new urban complex.
