Case 05 | Minato Mirai 21 District Urban Redevelopment Project
In the Yokohama area, the urban functions had been divided into two due to the piers and shipbuilding yards that saw their peak during the period of rapid economic growth. To solve the problem, the waterfront urban redevelopment project of a total of approx. 186ha was launched by clearing the old facilities and reclaiming land to build a new and international community with consolidated and enhanced urban functions on the site.
In conjunction with the development, a new railway line was built and various rules were made to design the skyline of the entire city, and to implement a lighting plan conscious of the scenery created by the lights, all contributing to the enhancement of the city value.
UR undertook the implementation of approx. 102ha of the land readjustment project, enhancement of disaster prevention functions, and the coordination of right holders.
