Back to mixed-use

Pusan Harbor Urban Design Masterplan

Pusan, South Korea

The Pusan Harbor Plan is a modern vision for waterfront development in Korea. Reclaimed from the Pusan Inner Harbor, the 28.7 hectare site is defined by a signature waterfront park framed by 850,000 square-meters of development which includes a new international mixed-use ferry terminal and customs facility, hotels, office, residential, retail and entertainment facilities. A public performance building anchors the southern point of the site and is designed to host the Pusan Film Festival. The crescent-shaped waterfront park and broad promenades are intended to be the first component of an extensive pedestrian and open-space network extending landside from the harbor toward Pusan.
