West Arterial Road underground project nearing completion… Seoul Digital Industrial Complex and other beneficiary real estate ‘excitement’


As the underground arterial road project is scheduled to be completed in August, real estate in the Seoul Digital Industrial Complex and other areas is heating up. This is because accessibility is eased as travel time decreases, and the increase in local value is attracting attention.

The underground arterial road is a project to construct a 10.33km section from the southern end of Seongsan Bridge in Yangpyeong-dong, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul to Geumcheon IC in Geumcheon-gu with four round-trip lanes. After the first shovel was opened in 2016, it was counted that the completion rate was 89.2% at the end of last year.

The Seoul Metropolitan Government estimates that the commuting time from the southern end of Seongsan Bridge to Geumcheon IC will be reduced by about 20 minutes, which was originally 30 minutes due to the underground arterial road. As the traffic volume decreases, the width of the western arterial road will be reduced from 20 to 30 m to 15 m to secure pedestrian space and create a resident-friendly space. The surrounding environment is also expected to be pleasant.

In this situation, the attention of consumers is focused on the neighboring areas designated as the biggest beneficiaries. Seoul Digital Industrial Complex is one of them. It is an industrial complex where various IT industry companies such as information, communication, computer, electricity, electronics, and knowledge industries are concentrated. When the western arterial road underground project is completed, commuting conditions will improve and business efficiency is expected to increase as you can move quickly to various parts of the metropolitan area. In the case of new sales, the ‘Artis Forum’ presented by Ace E&C attracts attention. It is a knowledge industry center with 3 basement levels and 20 stories above ground in 1 lot including 197-11 Guro-dong, Guro-gu, Seoul. Artisforum is a knowledge industry center that has been around for a long time in Seoul Digital Industrial Complex 1. Among the three complexes, the 1st complex is also considered to be the area with the best industry, transportation, convenience facilities, and infrastructure. In addition to businesses moving in from other areas, the sales officials expect that demand for relocation will be abundantly secured within the complex.

It is said that the western arterial road will be located near the project site and enjoy a premium from the underground project. An excellent wide-area transportation network can be expected as the West Coast Expressway can be accessed through the Western Arterial Road. With the recent opening of the Gangnam Ring Expressway, it is evaluated that accessibility in the Gangnam area has been further strengthened.

The location near the station, which enhances the convenience of commuting to and from work for employees, is also noteworthy. Namguro Station (Line 7) is a 5-minute walk away, and Guro Digital Complex Station (Line 2) and Daerim Station (Transfer Lines 2 and 7) are also within walking distance. In the Guro Digital Complex area, the new Ansan Line from Ansan to the Yeouido area will be newly built, and the public transportation network will be further expanded in the future.

In addition to the knowledge industry center, business facilities and neighborhood living facilities will also be built. The floor height of all rooms on the ground floor of the Knowledge Industry Center is 4.2 m, maximizing the sense of space, and some rooms are designed to use a wider space by providing a dedicated open terrace. Ceiling-type air conditioners with fine dust filters, total heat exchangers, and air supply and exhaust facilities were also applied.

About 15% and 20% of the site area is composed of landscaping and public space, respectively. Through this, we plan to realize a nature-friendly environment. There will be a rest area on the 1st floor, an outdoor garden on the 4th floor and a rooftop garden.

Currently, the sale of Artisforum is in full swing. The PR center was set up in the area of ​​Digital-ro 31-gil, Guro-gu, Seoul. In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the PR Center is operated by reservation system.
