Quick post to celebrate end of ‘new town’ development

Unlike some other folk I know, I don’t yet have a man-crush on Seoul mayor Park Won-soon, largely because of stuff like this.

Still, as far as his decision to halt “new town” construction, all I can say is well done, sir. Well done.

If you’re a developer, don’t fret, because there’s always the export market—according to the Hanguk Ilbo, there appear to be many African and Middle Eastern kleptocrats leaders interested in Korean-style “new cities.

    Redevelopment of existing built-up areas also falls under the “new town” headline in Seoul.
