The new development also aims to be a self-sufficient city where its energy source will be solar-generated, all while producing its own food and fresh water.

Busan Metropolitan City is partnering with New York designers Oceanix for this $200 million project and construction will be commencing very soon.

No dates of the development have been announced as of yet.
