Within the Magok District of Seoul, South Korea, a massive and awe-inspiring project is underway; a project which when completed will see the creation of the largest new corporate research campus in the world in the form of the new LG Science Park.

Designed by HOK, the campus will accommodate approximately 19,000 LG employees across multiple disciplines including electronics, nanotechnology, chemistry, display, fabrication, and life sciences.

Spread over a site covering a whopping 11.8 million sq. ft. right alongside the Han River, the campus will include 10 laboratory and office buildings each connected via an underground services and amenities floor complete with subterranean parking facilities.

The ground level will incorporate a number of public gardens, parks, and restaurants capable of accommodating up to 6,100 people. These restaurants also double as collaboration hubs to supplement the campus’ suite of flexible meeting areas and seminar rooms.

In the centre of the new campus you will find the Integrated Support Centre (ISC), which will house a welcome center and multipurpose event hall as well as numerous conference rooms, exhibition areas and even a VIP lounge. Day-care facilities, sports and recreation areas, and convenience retail will fill the remaining space.

6,000 construction workers are currently employed on the site, which is expected to be completed and ready for the grand opening by the end of summer 2018.
