Parc.1 Complex [파크원] is a large shopping, hotel and office complex that is easily recognizable by its red hued steel truss, inspired by the red pillars used in traditional Korean architecture to symbolize dignity and class. Standing at four times the size of 63 Building, this “mixed-used urban culture complex” consists of four buildings: the 69 storey, 333m-tall Tower A [타워 A가], the 53 storey, 256m-tall Tower B [타워 B가], a 31-floor hotel building [호텔동] occupied by Fairmont Ambassador Seoul [페어몬트 앰배서더 서울], and a 8-floor retail building [리테일] where Hyundai Department Store — Yeouido Branch [현대백화점 여의도점] is slated to open in January 2021.
The buildings, designed by Italian-British architect Lord Richard Rogers, were intended to “create value” by integrating harmoniously with its surroundings, while “revamp[ing] the image of Yeouido”, where it’s located. The overall construction of this complex started in June 2007 and was completed in July 2020 with a construction halt between 2010-11.
This complex is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Yeouido [Yeouido-dong/여의도동] in the Yeongdeungpo District [Yeongdeungpo-gu/영등포구], about a 4-min. walk to/from Oliver Brown — Yeouido Branch [올리버브라운여의도점], and a 10-min. walk to/from S-Trenue Tower [에스트레뉴 타워].
Fairmont Ambassador Seoul [페어몬트 앰배서더 서울], the first hotel under the Fairmont brand to open in South Korea, offers “326 guests rooms & suites offering panoramic views of the Yeouido skyline and the Han River”.
