Mirae Scientists street (Future Scientists street) is a street in a newly developed area in Pyongyang to house scientific institutions of the Kim Chaek University of Technology and their employees.[1] The six-lane street, located between Pyongyang Railway station and the Taedong river,[2] is lined by high rise apartments. The area was formally opened at November 3, 2015.[3]

The tallest building is the 53-story blue Mirae Unha Tower. The street is designed to emphasize Kim Jong-un's focus on science and technology, built around the regime's nuclear weapons development.[4]

Mirae Scientists Street was reportedly the first location where the Mirae public WiFi network was installed.[5]
