Case 04 | Otemachi District Urban Redevelopment Project
In the Otemachi area, the core of Japan’s economy with a forest of headquarter buildings of major companies in international finance, information-communication, and media etc., this chain of urban redevelopment projects saw a continual rebuilding of decrepit buildings without interrupting business activities, and the restructuring of Otemachi as a strategic hub of global business. In conjunction with the redevelopment of office buildings, public spaces valuable to the heart of Tokyo were created, such as the pedestrian path along the Nihonbashi river and the rows of zelkova trees in the center of the district.
UR played the roles in the overall project planning, the formation of consensus among land owners, and the implementation of land readjustment.
