Honoring a City’s Past and Present
In the heart of Seoul’s downtown business district, Centropolis offers premium office space within two identical twenty-six-story towers. Prior to occupancy, the development sold for over $1 billion – making it the largest single real estate deal in South Korean history.
The exterior wall is comprised of unitized glass and an articulated porcelain panel system to honor the motif found in traditional Korean stone walls. Its twin towers are connected by a central street-level retail corridor while a discreet, basement-level museum houses an exhibit of historical artifacts uncovered during construction.
The two 26-story office towers allow a view corridor through the center, reducing the effect of the area’s heavy visual density.
