HaeUn Dae_05Cuningham Group collaborated with Korean firm SangJi Architects in an international competition for a mixed-use development on the last remaining open property along HaeUnDae Beach. The design is a modern interpretation of the naturalistic landscape of where the mountains meet the sea.

The project focuses on the celebration of water, anchoring a true four-season, mixed-use development including timeshare and hotel over retail, entertainment, and office spaces. The existing boardwalk not only extends across the site but also extrapolates into a new environment, which includes a new beach and wave pool. The project is committed to providing a lush resort setting that is usable throughout the four seasons.
