IFC Seoul [IFC서울] – or International Finance Center Seoul in full – is a “state-of-the-art complex combining three office towers“, along with IFC Mall and Conrad Hotel Seoul [콘래드호텔]. Heralded as “a perfect harmony of people, business, and nature”, the complex project was launched in 2005 by the “Seoul Metropolitan Government … to rejuvenate the Yeouido area as a regional financial hub“, and was completed in 2012.
