February 07, 2018

SEOUL, 7 February 2018 – Real estate consultancy JLL (NYSE: JLL) Korea been announced by Yeoksam PFV as the exclusive sales agent for Gangnam N Tower, one of the only two Grade A office projects to be completed in Seoul's Gangnam commercial district this year.

Located at 648-9 Yeoksam-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, the Gangnam N Tower will span 51,132 square meters (15,467 pyung). Scheduled for completion in August 2018, the new 24-storey building presents a best-in-class design and tenant-centered specification with maximized office space utilization, abundant retail amenities and lavish green areas. Over 500 square meters of green parks and 110 meters high rooftop garden create healing and relaxing spaces for tenants in the center of city. The property, located in a high exposure location fronting Teheran-ro within 5-minute walk of both Gangnam and Yeoksam Stations, benefits from superb road and public transport accessibility.

Chae Hun Chang, Country Head and Head of Capital Markets, JLL Korea, says: "Gangnam N Tower is an enviable investment holding and offers a good environment for corporates to set up flagship headquarters. Due to the increasing tenant demand and limited prime office supply in Gangnam, this presents a unique opportunity to acquire a brand new Grade A office in one of the core commercial districts in Seoul."

Chae Hun anticipates strong competition for the property from both domestic and foreign buyers. Marketing and sales efforts to attract investors and occupiers will commence immediately.

Gangnam has maintained the lowest vacancy rate amongst Seoul's three major business sub-markets since 2010. Supported by a robust IT sector and a rising number of co-working tenants, key occupiers in Gangnam are typically in the IT, venture capital funds, private banking, chemicals, and health and pharmaceuticals sectors.
