The Songdo Canal Walk is a mixed-use development incorporating retail and residential space across four blocks of low-rise buildings. Green spaces with seating and reflection areas run along the 1,500 foot living canal, creating a dynamic yet tranquil pedestrian atmosphere.
Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) as a destination space that weaves together the business and residential neighborhoods of the Songdo IBD, the buildings feature wood and metal textures installed onto pre-cast concrete walls with floor-to-ceiling windows.
The Songdo Canal Walk was a joint venture between Gale International, Posco E&C and Morgan Stanley.
BGI’s responsibilities included Master planning, contract negotiation, budgeting & underwriting, capital formation, design & construction management, and marketing & leasing.
