Since the announcement of Urban Regeneration 2.0 in Seoul, the Seoul urban regeneration project is taking a new turn. This study aims to make suggestions regarding directional moves for Seoul’s intermediary organization. The interview data limited to the answers involving the problems and limitations of the intermediary organization of the Seoul Package Lab proceeded by the Seoul Metropolitan Council were reanalyzed. Based on this database, five factors that influenced securing sustainability of the intermediary organization were identified; Suwon Sustainable City Foundation was suggested as an alternative case for finding an adaptable counterplan to the actual regeneration project. The analysis results of these five factors revealed it was necessary to find alternatives for securing stable employment to increase the efficiency and the quality of this project. Therefore, a potential alternative was proposed for a new form of an intermediary organization that comprehensively looks at urban problems in various dimensions. For a smooth urban regeneration project operation, it was suggested to ensure a certain legal status for domestic urban regeneration intermediary organizations. Efforts for securing autonomy from the administration should be prepared with complementary attempts and efforts by both the administration and these organizations. Lastly, a clear division of roles between city-local-community level intermediary organizations should be supplemented in the guidelines for urban regeneration New Deal projects.
