government has announced eight candidate sites for public redevelopment pilot projects in downtown Seoul.

It is expected that about 3,000 more units will be supplied to all of the subway stations in downtown Seoul, minus the number of members, and there are many problems to overcome.

This is reporter Jeon Hyeong-woo.


It is Heukseok District 2 that was selected as a candidate site for the public redevelopment pilot project.

Right in front of Heukseok Subway Station, it was designated as a maintenance area in 2008, but the project was not progressing.

If redevelopment is carried out, the number of houses is expected to increase to 1,310 households, nearly five times.

In addition, 4,700 houses will be supplied to 8 areas including Yangpyeong 13 and 14 districts in Yeongdeungpo-gu, Yongdu 1-6 and new 1 districts in Dongdaemun-gu, Bongcheon 13 district in Gwanak-gu, Sinmun-ro 2-12 in Jongno-gu, and Gangbuk district 5 in Gangbuk-gu.

Public companies such as Korea Land and Housing Corporation participate in the development, increase the floor area ratio, and receive benefits such as excluding the pre-sale price ceiling.

Instead, half of the remaining housing, excluding the members of the union, must be given out as public rental housing.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport plans to additionally review 47 of the 56 sites participating in the competition last year and select more candidates by the end of March, making it an important means of housing supply policy.

However, there are many difficulties, such as obtaining the consent of members to donate a large portion of the development profits to the public and finding a way to relieve the disadvantages of tenants who have been doing business for a long time.

In addition, although candidate sites are designated as land transaction permit zones, there are concerns that it could lead to higher housing prices.
