Hyundai E&C is about to reveal a bird’s eye view of its new apartment complex, the Hill State Liberty, in the Hanshin District in Gimpo, Gyeonggi Province to potential buyers.
The apartment construction project in the Hanshin District in Gimpo City is one of the projects that the company has been pushing for a long time.
Early in the 2000s, the construction company began buying land in Hanshin-ri, Gochon in Gimpo City, including land to build residences for its employees.
But the plan did not go well and faced a number of setbacks that cropped up. The land turned out to be where seasonal birds spent a season. Also, nearby land was left out of the Gimpo City 2020 City. The economic slump that visited the area following the 2008 global financial crisis suspended the purchase of land for a number of years.
The company picked up the land purchase project again only toward the end of last year. The company set out to buy the rest of the land in the area in Hanshin District, Gimpo City.
Now the builder plans to erect 52 residential buildings, each with 21 floors and two basement floors, for a total of 3,510 apartment units. They will be divided into two complexes; 1,568 apartment units in the first complex and 1,942 apartment units in the second complex.
The sizes of the apartments will range from 68 square meters to 121 sq. meters, with those below 85 sq. meters in sizes taking up 85 percent of the new apartments.
The company will design, finance and allocate the project. A unique feature of the apartment complexes is that the parking lots will be built underground. No cars will be parked above ground in the complex in order to promote safety.
The residential structures will be reinforced with special H-core steel produced by Hyundai Steel, to make them earthquake proof. The apartments will be equipped with the H-oT, an LoT service so that the residents can use their handphones to control lights, air conditioners and heaters.
