Information Regarding the Site and Vicinity

Site and Vicinity

  • Currently, Jeonju Station is a railway station on the Jeolla Line, and it was built on its current location due to the relocation of the Jeolla Line in 1981.
  • KTX, ITX-Saemaul, Mugungwha-ho, and S-train stop here.
  • It faces Baekje-daero (first Majoong-gil) in the south-western direction and Dongbu-daero in the south-northern direction.
  • It is surrounded by a commercial area, in which commercial facilities of 3-5 stories are positioned on Baekje-daero, and 2-3 stories on Dongbu-daero.
  • A housing development district (Jeonju station area public support private rental lease housing district) has been announced in the northeast, and a commercial & residential complex (of 30 stories) is under construction on the south side of the central square.

Current Conditions of the Existing Building

  • The new station building includes all the following areas (A to E), which will be freely placed on the site.
  • Existing parking lot (A), platform and railways (D), rear public space (E), part of the central square (B) (part of the business expense).
