Seoul Removes Highway and Restores River Beneath

This highway had covered the Cheonggyecheon River for decades and now a stream lies where the once busy expressway stood. The stream is lined with parks and urban gathering spaces and it has encouraged walking and taking pride in the environment.

Mall Transformed into a Mixed-Use Neighborhood

The redesign will be in line with many new urbanism projects. There will be shops, cafes and offices connected by walkways. Storefronts will be on the first floor and residential units will occupy the top floors. There will also be a mix of cottages, multi family homes, and condos in the neighborhood as to add variety. Parking will still be present but will be hidden behind the retrofitted mall, away from the storefronts.
