Canal Walk is an outdoor shopping court in the International Business District Songdo IBD[4] of Songdo, Incheon, South Korea. The court comprises four sections, one for each season, and is located along a stretch of a man-made canal running north to south. It stretches 2,625 feet within D1-D4 blocks.[5] Each block contains five-story glass buildings; the first two stories are retail units that include fitness clubs, bookstores, clothing and general stores, cafes, and restaurants. The top three stories contain 445 luxury officetel units.[6] The site also encourages pedestrian flow by protecting people from traffic and noise with its open-court walkway, although "season" sections require road crossings.[7] The court is also located near Songdo Central Park.
