A Master Plan Inspired By The World
With a commitment to sustainable design principles and the best practices of urban planning, Gale International and its partners have realized their vision for a new international city. The master plan calls for a synergistic mix of uses for Songdo IBD, from architecturally advanced office and convention space to world-class hotels. Songdo IBD is also home to a variety of residential and retail developments, offering a range of shopping, dining and entertainment experiences, as well as public and private schools and state-of-the-art health care facilities.
Woven into the Songdo IBD master plan is a rich set of amenities inspired by some of the greatest cities of the world.
Songdo IBD boasts the wide boulevards of Paris, a 100-acre Central Park reminiscent of New York City, a system of pocket parks similar to those in Savannah, a modern canal system inspired by Venice and convention center architecture redolent of the famed Sydney Opera House. The cultural fabric of Songdo IBD will also be a rich one with a stunning opera house, concert hall, museum and aquarium. A Jack Nicklaus championship golf course - one of only 25 in the world - is under construction with plans already in the works for high-profile events, including a PGA Championship Tour event.
These features come together to create a dynamic, vibrant world community for business professionals and their families.
