Busan North Port Redevelopment Project expands water-friendly spaces
Friday, February 24, 2012, 07:58:32 Paul Yoon ckyoon7@paran.com
Busan North Port Redevelopment Project (BNPRP), the biggest since Busan Port was opened, has been revised to build park and water-friendly spaces with an emphasis on public interest.

Busan Port Authority (BPA) opened an advisory meeting on BNPRP on Feb. 22, announcing a revised plan in the project as prepared by GS Construction Consortium.

The revision highlights the expansion of the island area to a total of 300,000 square meter (sqm) from 170,000 sqm with its waterway length extended by 1km surrounding the island aimed at enhancing its public interest and symbolism.

The island was initially planned to have oceanic culture complex, but it will be expanded to have extra public area including marina and park for culture and leisure. The large park initially centered in the area is now to be dispersed around into all waterfront culture spaces and green networks across the redevelopment area with a particular emphasis on the attraction of water-friendly spaces.

The existing coastal passenger terminal facility is planned to be used as a historic park and to be developed in conjunction with old town in Busan. As a result, the park development area under BNPRP is to be expanded to 17,000sqm against the original plan. The public facilities such as police station, fire house, library, education center, which have yet to be ascertained, are to be reserved as open public area required flexibly depending on the changing circumstances in future.

The revised plan under BNPRP, which is based on the use of land as recommended by GS Construction Consortium selected the preferred bidder for the project, is disclosed after complemented in part in consultation with BPA and other related organizations.

BPA plans to file the revised plan of BNPRP for an approval from MLTM after presenting it to Busan citizens shortly. Kwon, So-Hyun, head of Investment Promotion Office, BPA, said, “We will try our utmost to secure abundant park and water-friendly spaces in North Port Redevelopment area in a bid to provide pleasant leisure to Busan citizens and make it of a high-end tourist resort place.
