Retail transformation of K-Tower

Value-add project from expansion and renewal on retail space


Seoul, Korea

Square Feet

510,087.72 sq ft

JLL transformed the most of the space from the 2nd basement floor to the 2nd level floor of the Yeouido K-Tower, a newly constructured building, into a trendy complex F&B space. This is the first case of a single F&B tenant to lease a large area.

JLL signed a contract with an attractive brand who required a large area including the underground two floors with poor visibility and accessibility. Both the landlord and the large tenant have drawn up a lease contract for 100% of the total area six months prior to the completion of the K Tower, by drawing up a cooperative relationship (e.g. paying 50% of the escalator cost) and reducing unnecessary input costs.
