This location has been labeled as Demolished, and therefore can be viewed by anyone.
This area used to serve as a parking lot for upper middle class bankers (at the nearby Woori Bank) and technology workers (at the nearby LG CNS). It contained two "cinder block and pallet" buildings, an abandoned house/apartment, and an industrial-looking building which seemed to be at least semi-active. All have now been demolished, probably to make way for an office tower.
 Basic Information
Type: Outdoor/Buildings
Status: Demolished
Accessibility: Moderate
Recommendation: forget it
 Physical Information
Near Namsan 3rd Tunnel

    The windows in the house/apartment are spray-painted white for some reason. House is still in somewhat stable looking condition, but other structures on the property are rather worse for wear.

    This place may have been some kind of farm at one point after the war and before massive urban sprawl, but it's hard to say for sure.

     Future Plans
    I assume it'll remain a parking lot for now. At least until the multi-billion dollar tower across the road is completed sometime by 2010.

    **As of October 15th, the trees on this property have all been cut down, and the site appears to be prepared for demolition.**

    **UPDATE Nov. 8/07: A 24 hour security booth has been added at the East entrance to the site. The Western side is wide open, but totally visible to any nosy neighbours nearby.

    **All structures appear to have been demolished as of December 15th, 2007.**
