Park Won-Soon Mayer of Seoul Metropolitan Government, announced the exit plan for Seoul’s Newtown and Redevelopment Projects in 2012.


This has allowed residents to decide whether or not to cancel and implement the redevelopment area by checking its status and listening to residents’ opinions. Alternative regeneration projects have been carried out on the areas that have been cancelled.

So far, 393 out of 683 planned areas have been lifted(‘Cancelled Area’), but many of them have not been able to set the direction for residential regeneration.


In this study, we analyzed the actual condition of the cancelled area that we have been performing and typified it. And we reviewed the direction of the residential regeneration reflecting the new condition change by type.


The main contents of the study were focused on the following four main research questions.

1. What are the achievements and challenges of exit plan for Seoul’s Newtown and Redevelopment Project?

2. What are the major issues in the Newtown and Redevelopment Project of cancelled areas?

3. What is the applicability of the New Deal Policy of the central Government?

4. What is the direction of residential regeneration of the cancelled area that reflects new conditions?
