The current government office building of Gangseo-gu was established in 1977 and the facilities have deteriorated somewhat over the past 40 histrorical years.
Also, it was inevitable to separate the space into 9 facilities due to the narrow area which led to a lack of connectivity and efficiency of work.
Thus, demand increased to establish a new government office complex that allows integrated administrative services and includes an open space for residents.
As we head towards 50 years of establishment, Gangseo-gu now prepares for the next 50 years through the new government office, and the symbolic significance that is necessary when preparing for a future city.
