Ch'ŏllima is a kuyŏk in Namp'o Special City, North Korea. Prior to 2004, it was Ch'ŏllima-kuyok, a district of northeastern Namp'o Directly Governed City. Following the demotion of Namp'o in 2004, Ch'ŏllima became an independent county. The region was part of Kangsŏ county in 1952, and was entered into Taean city; when Taean was demoted to county in 1983, it became part of Namp'o Special City.

Beginning in the early 2000s, North Korea began building a discrete, largely unnoticed, cluster of buildings, not far from the banks of the Taedong river, a few kilometers south-southeast of the North Korean capital of Pyongyang. Located on the eastern end of Chollima, a town best known for hosting a massive steel manufacturing complex since the Japanese occupation of the Korean Peninsula, the facility had drawn no public attention—until now.
