    After the Americans left it, this land fell into Samsung's hands, who eventually sold it off to Korean Air. The airline wanted to build a luxury hotel there but faced several zoning restrictions, including one that it was too close to a girls' school. So the plan was made to close the school. Then the Nut Rage incident happened, Korean Air's public profile dropped, and the plan fell through.
