Top 10 Cities That Didn’t Exist in 1960
Incheon The city of Incheon, in South Korea, is just miles from the North Korean border. With a population of nearly 3 million, it is the third largest city in South Korea. In 1994, the South Korean government, with a keen eye toward the future, decided to undertake a bold plan to reclaim land from the sea off the coast of Incheon, and build the world’s largest ubiquitous technological city. With a projected cost of $40 to 50 billion, the city has an estimated completion date of 2020, and hopes to accommodate up to half a million residents. The South Korean government is also trying to build the city within a strict green blueprint, which it may or may not meet.
