Galaxy Young Apartments

Resurrection City: The Scale of Seoul's Urban Renewal Process

Galaxy Young Apartments

A relatively recent trend in urban development targets the large-scale apartment complexes south of the Han River that were built mostly in the late 1960s and 1970s. Galaxy Young (Garak Siyeong) is a complex of 134 medium-sized apartment buildings containing 6,601 households, which were scheduled to be replaced. By the time of eviction, the apartments were neglected and rundown, and few young people lived here.
