This project is specially designed for Edu-town area inside Gwanggyo New Town. It is conveniently located to access three New Towns (Pangyo, Suwon and Dongtan). Gwanggyo Mountain and Won-Chun public garden provide great views and green environments.
An inflow of natural elements and broadly open pathways embodies the natural friendly residential area. The central business area and the educational facilities also support this residential area.
