SEOUL, Oct. 31 (Korea Bizwire) — A rejuvenation project for the Changsin-Sungin neighborhood in Seoul’s Jongno District is entering its final phase with completion slated for the end of this year.
Once a major hub of South Korea’s garment industry, Changsin-Sungin had since
deteriorated into a poor, deserted part of the city until in 2014, when the area was selected for Korea’s first urban renewal project.
Since then, the Seoul Metropolitan Government has been leading various construction projects in the area to raise the standard of living among residents as well as preserve the area’s history and cultural heritage.
