Facts

  • Acrovista is a project built on the site where Sampoong Department Store collapsed on June 29th, 1995, causing over 500 deaths.
  • The site had been left deserted until 2000 when Daesang Co., Ltd. (developer) and Daelim Engineering & Construction announced a luxury housing complex.
  • The project met difficulties in the beginning because of height restrictions (the location is near important government buildings such as the Supreme Court and the Supreme Public Prosecutor's Office), and protests from families of victims of the Sampoong accident who demanded a memorial at the site.
