Demolition of the old Aoyama Kitamachi Apaato housing complex in Omotesando is underway. Asbestos removal from four buildings is currently being carried out. Asbestos sheeting and spray-on insulation was used in some of the buildings’ rooftop waterproofing, plumbing insulation, and chimneys.
The city-owned public housing estate will soon be replaced with high-rise residential, aged care facilities and retail space.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government has chosen six developers to partake in the project, including Tokyo Tatemono, Mitsui Fudosan, Kajima Corporation and Maeda Corporation.
