At a total estimated cost of $35Billion, and slated to be completed by 2014, Songdo International Business District, the world’s largest commercial development ever built will house more than 65,000 residents in Incheon, South Korea.
The development is being built on over 1500 acres and will include an amazing 50 million square feet of office space, 30 million square feet of residential accommodations, 10 million square feet of retail, five million square feet of hotel accommodations and 10 million square feet of green space. The mix of offerings will include an international school, hospital, ecotarium and museum.
And here’s the kicker- it’s being built all at once!
GALE International, based in New York City, is the developer and the master plan was designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox.

My friend Chad has decided to do a social experiment on Facebook and throw some parties (which are always a blast) and give away some tips on his famous drinks and food (always awesome)…
This is the first video from Chad. Listen along as he shares his process for building the best pineapple martinis!
Chad really is the ultimate bachelor. But he is finally ready (he claims) to find the right girl to settle down with, which some people think is crazy because he is very successful at being single and is very well off so he can afford to stay single successfully.
Anyway, Chad hates loves when I tell people this- he was named in Cosmo magazine as America’s 8th most eligible bachelor a few years ago- the local news came out and interviewed him and and made a big deal out of it, which, of course, I think is funny and cool. So if you visit his Facebook page or attend one of the parties, make sure you tease him about it congratulate him.
