Tokyo rushes to develop new commercial complexes

The landscape of Tokyo will change dramatically again by the time Tokyo will host Olympic & Paralympic Games in 2020.

Major “Developers” are now rushing to develop hot new commercial complexes with shopping centers, offices, residences and other cool facilities, focused in central Tokyo.

In addition to ongoing Olympic & Paralympic preperations, recent government policies and influx of money from overseas investors are boosting up large-scale investments to central Tokyo.

Below is the list of such “hot” upcoming development projects in Tokyo, yet only the ones already officially announced. It is said that still many more projects are being discussed behind closed doors.
