South Korean space center, built on Woenaro Island, off the Goheung peninsula, at the southern end of the Korean peninsula. The space center would be built in four phases through 2015 on a 4.95 million square meter landfill on the shore of the island.

AKA: Naro Space Center. First Launch: 2009-08-25. Last Launch: 2013-01-30. Number: 3 . Location: Goheung, Jeollanamdo. Longitude: 127.5279 deg. Latitude: 34.4258 deg.

The total area was planned to be 500,000 square meters, including 300,000 square meters of buildings. By the end of Phase 4 it was to comprise two launch pads, a combustion test building, a radar center, an observatory tower, a launch control center, surveillance radar, a helipad, generator buildings, support equipment storage warehouses, a meteorological office, quarters, a press center, a satellite assembly shop, a space experience hall and an optical tracking center. A total of 125 million dollars would be expended through Phase I in 2005, with the final total cost through 2015 expected to be $ 4.3 billion. The center was eventually expected to provide 5,200 jobs. Woenaro Island had an area of 26.5 square kilometers and a pre-construction population of 4,000. The island had a shoreline of 45 kilometers and its highest point was 393 meters above sea level.
