Case 01 | Tama New Town
Tama New Town, the construction of one of the largest (approx. 2,900ha) new town development projects in Japan, was launched in 1965. The project was launched in the Tama area, about 20-30km from the heart of Tokyo, aiming to form a designed urban housing area and a mass supply of quality housing, in order to solve the lack of housing and urban sprawl which became a serious issue in Tokyo due to the over-concentration of population and industries in the city during the period of rapid economic growth.
UR contributed in instituting the masterplan, implementing the extensive area development project of approx. 1,400ha, and supplying housing etc.. Today the town has grown into a city of approx. 90,000 households and a population of approx. 220,000.
Locations : Inagi City, Tama City, Hachioji City and Machida City, Tokyo
Site area : Approx. 2,900ha
