Redevelopment discussions underway in Tsukuda 2 Chome, Chuo, Tokyo

Landowners in the Tsukuda 2 Chome address in Tokyo’s Chuo ward are considering a large-scale redevelopment. Current considerations are for a mixed-use project including a hotel, retail and apartments. 

The potential redevelopment zone covers a 1.8 hectare area site located a 2 minute walk from Tsukishima Station. The southern end of the site fronts onto Kiyosumi Street. The eastern side of the site is expected to contain low-rise retail, with a high-rise apartment tower in the center of the block and a hotel on the western side. 

Construction could start as early as 2022, although it is possible the schedule may change. 

The Tsukuda neighborhood was originally two islands – Ishikawa and Tsukuda – that were joined during the Edo period. The southern part of Tsukuda, where this development district is located, was created through land reclamation during the Meiji period.
