Renowned as a model for future, sustainable, city-scale developments, the New Songdo City in Incheon sets it apart from other “smart” cities with 70 percent fewer emissions than other developments in its size. Developed by Gale International Korea and Posco E&C, the new international city consists of commercial buildings and residential blocks, including the D20D21 zones designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, with ALT as the facade consultant. These apartments offer modern conveniences, abundant green spaces, and direct access to transportation linking to Seoul and the nearby Incheon Airport.
New Songdo City, including the Residential Block D20D21 and its surrounding residential and mixed-use developments, is built to set a new standard in sustainability, building performance, green infrastructure, and planning. This masterplan community is now considered “The Gateway to Northeast Asia.”
