Waterfront City

Space for citizens to live life to the fullest, eco-friendly waterfront cities

Creation of waterfront space to improve the national quality of life and public values

Recently, there has been a growing demand for the utilization of waterside space linked with the quality of life due to de-urbanization, the advancement of industrial structures, and the improvement of income levels. In addition, there is a growing need for sustainable city development projects as a means of enhancing urban vitality and identity. Therefore, K-water, moving away from complex development projects focusing on the supply of industrial and residential space, pursues the improvement of the national quality of life and public values using water, based on its experiences in all fields related to water circulation including future-oriented culture, amenity, safety from disasters, smart water city (SWC), and low-impact development (LID) along with the application of Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies.

Creating global innovative growth cities where nature, people, and technology meet and accelerates the arrival of the future
