Construction starts on Omotesando public housing redevelopment

Construction on the Kita Aoyama 3 Chome District Project began on March 1. This is the redevelopment of the former Aoyama Kitamachi Apaato public housing complex located just behind Omotesando Station.

The redevelopment is being carried out under a joint venture between Tokyo Tatemono, Mitsui Fudosan, Mitsui Fudosan Residential and Kajima Corporation. The exterior has been designed by Kengo Kuma and Associates – the same architect as the nearby Olympic Stadium which is currently under construction.

The new 25-storey, 90-meter tall apartment building will include 229 rental-only apartments, 49 aged care rooms, a nursery school and retail facilities. Almost half of the 8,000 sqm site will be a public park and garden. Residential tenants will have access to a telework space, gym and bilingual concierge.

Completion is scheduled for May 2020.
